    Self Storage Essex

    Snappy Self Storage is a fantastic solution for homeowners, house movers and businesses in Essex, with an ideal location less than 30 minutes drive from most Essex areas and positioned close to the major transport connections and motorways around London and the southeast.

    We provide dedicated self storage containers for any purpose, with competitive pricing and 24/7 security to ensure whatever items you decide to keep in self storage, they are safe, under surveillance, and accessible only to approved visitors with the appropriate credentials and entry codes.

    Self storage is flexible and suited to the majority of applications, from storing furniture and inventory, keeping vehicles and equipment, or retaining belongings that you do not require within your home or business premise.

    Our Self Storage Essex Services

    All our Essex storage clients receive upfront pricing, billed on a four-weekly basis – we keep our costs simple and transparent and won’t charge a penny until the day you move your items into your reserved self storage container.

    There are no maximum hire periods, so you can retain the same self storage unit in Essex or add additional units to your hire contract at any time if your requirements change or you exceed the generous capacity within every 20-foot container.

    Clients choose Snappy Self Storage for a broad range of applications, including:

    • Storing possessions, furnishings and furniture when moving home or renovating their property.
    • Storing business assets such as overflow stocks, out-of-season inventory, or display equipment required for conferences and events.
    • Vehicle storage is primarily used by collectors or those with a higher-value or classic car they wish to store somewhere safe and clean, without exposure to road tax or theft.

    We remind all new clients that although there are very few items you can’t retain in self storage, our Essex storage containers are not suited to explosives, flammable items or canisters, live animals or prohibited substances or equipment.

    Self Storage Essex Discounted Pricing

    For a limited time only, we are offering reduced four-weekly hire rates on all our standard self storage containers, with pricing available to view both including and excluding VAT, depending on whether you are enquiring for private hire or on behalf of a business.

    Our online reservation form is user-friendly and quick to complete – simply let us know a few details about the storage space you need and when you’d like to move in, and we’ll deal with everything else.

    Limited-time discounts are restricted to capacity, so we advise you to get in touch as quickly as you can if you’d like to take advantage of our competitive pricing.

    You are also welcome to contact Snappy Self Storage Essex if you would like to arrange a tour of our purpose-built self storage depot, one of our empty, secure containers, or the facility itself with ample space for HGVs, furniture delivery vehicles and other commercial equipment.

    Finding Snappy Self Storage Units Essex

    Our location was carefully chosen for accessibility both from London and Essex, and you can find us close to London City Airport and the A13, running parallel to the River Thames. Depending on where you are travelling from, the quickest way to reach our facilities is normally via the A13, although you can also enter our postcode into any GPS for more detailed directions.

    We work with both private and commercial self storage clients and provide general insurance coverage as standard.

    However, if you have particularly high-valued or previous items such as important business inventory, jewellery, inherited belongings or artworks, we usually advise you to think about taking out additional insurance for your peace of mind.

    Self storage containers are clean, dry, and protected from the elements, so in many cases provide a cost reduction in insurance compared to any other storage solution.

    Convenient Essex Storage Containers

    Snappy Self Storage endeavours to provide the utmost flexibility and convenience, and we don’t request a deposit or payment in advance. Instead, every self storage container is charged on a rolling four-weekly hire basis, so you can extend or leave your storage unit as and when you wish.

    Our business and commercial clients often retain a self storage Essex container for long-term requirements, such as:

    • Holding dropship stocks or online order inventory, where they can achieve lower prices by bulk buying without an excessive cost associated with storing items until they are ready to dispatch to customers.
    • Tool and equipment storage, with excellent surveillance and entry controls, to ensure your storage complies with the terms and requirements of your business insurance provider.
    • Record and archiving storage, helping companies comply with retention periods as relevant to their documentation without requiring large storage facilities within a busy premise.

    Every client has 24/7 access to their storage container with automated entrance gates and secure codes, so you can rest assured that nobody without your express permission is able to access your container or view your storage items.

    Reserve Self Storage Units in Essex

    We invite all interested clients to complete our reservation form to set aside storage capacity for your requirements. Our booking system is always live and completed online. We ask a few quick questions about the sort of storage you need and when you would like to move in.

    If you would like to ask any questions about using an Essex storage facility, you can also get in touch at your convenience, and one of our experienced self storage team will endeavour to help.

    Self storage is often the most affordable and convenient option for countless reasons, not least because there are no hidden extras or unexpected costs, such as business rates, additional insurance coverage or repairs associated with hiring a lock-up, warehouse or garage for your storage requirements.

    Snappy Self Storage Essex is designed specifically for self storage with ground-floor drive-up units, saving the stress and delays of organising the logistics to lift or transport heavier items such as vehicles on uneven ground.
