What is Self Storage?
Self storage is an American concept aimed at providing secure, affordable, individual storage units for business and household customers alike. It has become a rapidly expanding industry throughout Europe as business and domestic customers recognise the benefits of cheap, accessible, and most importantly secure storage space.Typical customers are:
• People moving house or renovating.
• People who cannot move but need additional storage space.
• Students and the Forces
• Ex-pats moving back or abroad
• Business's who are moving premises.
• Business's with excess or seasonal stock.
• Business's with bulky / valuable equipment to be stored securely and accessed anytime.
Business's who are currently using valuable office storage space for archived documents etc.How can Anchor help you?
Our friendly, well trained staff will assist you in ensuring you hire the correct unit for your needs – we will not rent you a unit that is too big or small for your requirements and can advise you on packing techniques / equipment to ensure your goods are adequately protected during storage / transit. We sell a comprehensive range of packing and protective equipment from flat packed boxes and tape to mattress covers and bubble wrap.Security Issues
The whole purpose of using Anchor Self Storage is the fact that you know your goods are stored in a dry, secure environment, under lock and key. As part of the process of hiring a unit from us we require all customers to provide us with two forms of identification – one of which must have a photograph i.e. photo drivers license or passport plus a utility bill but not a mobile phone bill. Failure to provide this documentation will result in us being unable to hire a unit to you, as all customers are issued with a swipe card allowing them access into the storage facility. We also have an intercom device which connects directly to our security services to ensure peace of mind with all of our customers.NO PROOF OF ID NO SWIPECARD.
In addition to our stringent customer identification process your goods are protected by the following methods:-
Customer swipe in/out system
Existing customers must swipe their card prior to entering and leaving the storage area. This system is linked to the individual unit door alarms and will alert us if somebody attempts to gain entry to a unit whilst the hirer is not on site. In the unlikely event of a fire, this system will also tell our staff who is in the building and in what area of the facility they are situated.
Personal customer padlocks
All customers are responsible for the padlocks securing their units
Dual burglar alarm
