    What Can I Keep in a Storage Unit Near Me?

    We work with a diverse mixture of clients, using self storage for many different purposes. Moving home is a common reason to require self storage, where homeowners or first-time buyers can store all of their furniture and belongings in a generously sized container until they are ready to move in.

    Homeowners also use self storage to protect their furniture and clear clutter from their homes while renovating or redecorating.

    Storing items in a loft space, garage, or shed often means your belongings are exposed to dust, dampness, poor weather conditions, contaminants and residues which can cause no end of damage, so a self storage unit is an excellent alternative.

    In terms of the kinds of items you can store, there are very few limitations, although we cannot store or insure:

    • Flammables and explosives, such as fireworks.
    • Live animals or plants.
    • Pressurised containers and gas canisters.
    • Items that are prohibited or illegal.

    Otherwise, you can store anything you would like to, where you need any-time access, clean and dry storage, and to keep your possessions safe and under surveillance.

    High-Security Self Storage Ilford

    Snappy Self Storage recognises that one of the key requirements you may have is security since any items stored long-term away from your main business premise or home may be exposed to tampering, damage, vandalism or theft.

    Our full-scope security system provides the best possible safeguards, with an automated access control gating system, privately issued entry codes for all clients, and ongoing CCTV monitoring to detect any unauthorised activity. We give you complete confidence that all your self storage items are protected.

    Booking a Long-Term Storage Unit Near Me

    Reserving an Ilford storage container couldn’t be easier. You can book online or reserve a storage unit for any date in the future, with the knowledge that your storage capacity has been set aside and will be available as soon as you need it.

    There is no need to specify your expected hire period, and we appreciate that, in many cases, self storage is used for requirements without a specific end date and only ask for an indication of the purpose of your storage and the date you’d like to move in.

    We implement a rolling hire system, so if you would like to continue using your self storage container, you need to do nothing further – we will issue a bill every four weeks until you let us know that your storage needs have changed.

    Our proximity to London City Airport and the other large airports in and around Ilford and Greater London makes our depot ideal for long-term requirements if you are planning to travel overseas, would like to store a car while on a business trip or need ongoing storage.

    Ilford Self Storage for Businesses

    Alongside self storage for homeowners, buyers and movers, Snappy Self Storage Ilford supports countless business clients in the local area who need convenience, cost-effectiveness and excellent customer service.

    Booking a self storage container is considerably cheaper than paying for a lock-up, warehouse or another general storage space, without any of the extra budgetary considerations such as business rates, maintenance and installing an alarm system.

    Businesses use Snappy Self Storage for:

    • Excess inventory, market stall stock and other overstock storage.
    • Equipment, tools and supplies that are required periodically.
    • Seasonal goods, display items and conferencing equipment.
    • Records, archives and other documentation.

    The capacity of one 20-foot self storage container is sufficient to hold the full contents of an average three to four-bedroom home, so however much space you need, Snappy Self Storage can help.
