    How Does Self Storage Basildon Work?

    Renting a self storage unit or container in Basildon or London is easy, with multiple units, lockers and containers with a variety of sizing options depending on the storage capacity you require.

    Complete our handy online booking form to reserve the relevant unit size, letting us know your moving-in date and a few other details to help us allocate the most appropriate unit, such as:

    • The purpose of your self storage, such as business, home, local authority or charity storage.
    • An indication of the purpose of your storage, which could be related to a house move, business requirements, or during a period of travel.

    Snappy Self Storage Basildon does not require an upfront deposit and will not charge anything until your moving-in day, and from there, issue bills every four weeks to ensure you can adjust your self storage as and when necessary without incurring unnecessary costs.

    Choosing the Best Container Storage Basildon

    There are a few considerations when choosing your self storage facility and the type or size of unit or container, such as:

    • The type of items you wish to store.
    • Overall dimensions and sizes.
    • Expected duration of storage.

    While all Snappy Self Storage Basildon services are fully insured, we recommend you ensure you have appropriate coverage for higher-valued items, particularly artworks, collectables or other possessions that will normally need external insurance coverage for storage periods outside of your home.

    We can advise if you are unsure which self storage units you need or would like assistance estimating the dimensions and size of your collective storage items, business equipment, vehicles or furniture.

    Ground floor drive-up units, for example, are ideal for business storage of a higher capacity or vehicle storage. Your delivery vehicle can drive directly to the entrance for convenient offloading, facilitating straightforward collections when your storage requirements end.

    How Much Are the Cheapest Storage Units Near Me?

    Our Basildon and London self storage facilities are charged on a monthly basis, without any additional costs incurred for individual days and without any pre-storage deposit or down payment. We charge only from the day you move your belongings or items into your self storage container and allow you to cancel at any point beforehand with zero charges.

    Snappy Self Storage is currently running introductory offers with excellent value available, providing high-capacity storage units based on a 20-foot container with sufficient space for all the furniture and furnishings from a standard-sized three to four-bedroom home.

    Please visit our bookings form for exact pricing or to reserve your secure self storage container.

    What Can I Keep in Container Storage Basildon?

    Most items, vehicles, tools, equipment and furniture, can be stored in self storage for any duration, with 24/7 security and clean, dry, weatherproof containers that prevent dampness or mould from affecting the condition or value of your stored belongings.

    However, there are some legal and regulatory limitations, which mean flammable, prohibited or hazardous items should not be stored in a self storage container.

    Examples include:

    • Live plants and animals.
    • Fireworks and explosive devices.
    • Illegal substances and firearms.
    • Gas canisters and other flammable items.
