We Are Open – Coronavirus Update

About us

In The Beginning

We started trading in June 2005 with just one location in Bridgwater, Somerset. Husband and wife team, Keith and Cathy ran the business on their own, doing everything from meeting and greeting customers to sweeping the floors and cleaning the toilets! As you can imagine at the time finances were very tight. We could not afford to heat our home and we were often working long hours, sleeping at the facility at times.

The Awards Started Coming In

We soon won a couple of awards, first at the Somerset Business of the Year Awards winning New Business of the Year in 2005 for a business under 1 year old. We followed that up the following year by winning 1st Place for Young Enterprenuer at the Somerset Business of the Year Awards 2006. These awards were supported by the FSB, Somerset County Council, Lloyds TSB Business (as it was named at the time) and Business Link amongst others.

In 2011 we followed these awards up with an Excellence In Customer Service award from storage.co.uk, it's something we've always prided ourselves in. Proper customer service for us is not about buzz words like "going the extra mile", it's getting things right on a consistent basis. No one is perfect all the time but if we get something wrong we want to treat people with respect, be friendly and ideally send all customers away happy. We aim to be a company that customers feel they can call up and talk to, ask any question they like and get the help they need.

Early Expansion

When we finally managed to branch out and open our second self storage in Taunton, it was like our new baby and as a small business we were stretched like new parents. Our small team all working extra hours and being pulled here there and everywhere as we tried to make it work. It was tough but as you probably guessed, it was a success. It was then a little while before we opened up in Bristol and had to play with the big boys! They probably didn't take much notice of us at the time (and still probably don't) but we managed to eek out a little niche for ourselves in West Bristol. We begged, borrowed and stole (off our Bridgwater branch) what we needed to get going, steadily getting enough customers to pay the bills and bring in new technology.

As we’ve added each new site the approach hasn’t changed, with the same care and attention given to each one. We now have a team of excellent staff who help us take care of everything but we haven’t forgotten where we came from.

We like each customer to be greeted with a friendly smile and a warm welcome. We also haven’t forgotten what it’s like to be on a tight budget and so we aim to offer an excellent service but we also aim for it to be well priced too. We don't always get to see or speak to our customers now as they can do everything online from getting a price, to booking and checking in. However we hope your experience of our company is the way we always hoped and planned. Friendly and efficient. We know we won't always get everything right but we'll certainly try and if something does go wrong, we'll try our upmost to put it right. You can't say fairer than that!

We needed to use a storage facility for 12 months and picked UK storage for their competitive prices. From start to finish they were a professional and helpful company to deal with. Access to the site was easy and the unit itself was very clean and of a high standard. I even had a rebate for giving up the unit early - I wasn’t expecting that!! Thank you.

I found the storage unit to be easily accessible, spotlessly clean and very safe, even for a lady on her own to use the facility. The admin staff were more than useful and I know if I need storage facilities again I would not hesitate to use them again.  I will no doubt be recommending them to my friends and neighbours.      Gwen    Llandudno/Stoke on Trent

FIRST CLASS STORAGE. I had recently purchased a kitchen Howdens, and unfortunately my kitchen fitter could not fit it immediately so consequently had to have it put into storage, from the moment I made my firstphone call to arrange the storage, I spoke to a very helpful member of the staff who set up everything in a matter of minutes, and when the time came came to end the storage period it was met with the same helpfulness. The rates for the storage were very fair and not expensive, so I rate this company very high for everything, and if the need to have anything stored again I would not fail to use this company, also knowing that what is stored is safe and secure.
