Please choose your Somerset site...
Our flagship store and head office lies in our beloved home town of Bridgwater. This is the site and town in which our story began way back in 2005 when husband and wife team Keith and Cathy decided to take on self storage in Somerset. We're a locally owned company with our directors and the vast majority of our staff living in and around Bridgwater town. We have a state of the art building here in Bridgwater, with great links to the M5 and all local areas. There are many Somerset storage companies, but we feel we have the local knowledge and the community presence that a company needs in order to succeed. Bridgwater is home to many things aside from UK Storage Company of course, our favourite being the annual Guy Fawkes Carnival. The first modernised version of the Guy Fawkes Carnival took place over 100 years ago, and can attract up to 150,000 people! That's the same as you'd expect at a Glastonbury festival. Only you're fairly unlikely to catch the likes of Lionel Richie or Fleetwood Mac championing our carnival! We always make sure we're there no matter the weather.
You wouldn't believe the amount of enquiries we receive with the misspelling of Bridgwater! It would be enough to make a local resident furious. A quick search on Google has come up with what sounds like a legitimate origin of the name... you can read more about it here. You can look that up yourself at another time if there's no paint drying that you could watch instead.
As an extra added bonus to those who store with us in Bridgwater, we can offer the use of a van with no hire charge (just a security deposit). We have a transit van that you can borrow from us for only the cost of the diesel. Any money saved during a house move is always welcomed, so not having to pay for van hire can only be a good thing.
We have long opening hours here, including Saturdays at no additional charge, allowing you that time to complete your move in to us. There's no security deposit to pay on any storage rooms, and you can store for as little as 10 days. While our building here is set over three floors, we provide the use of a lift and lots of flat-bed trollies to help make your move easier and more manageable.
Security on site in Bridgwater is second to none. It begins with the perimeter fence that is an instant deterrent, then beyond that is the building itself. The outside of our building is covered by 24 hour CCTV that is recorded and has a motion sensor. If anything moves on our site, we know about it. Our building is fully alarmed with both motion sensor and fire alarms, as well as smoke detectors. These phone straight to our staff and to the local constabulary, so should anything be tripped, again we'll know about it and will act immediately.
We also sell boxes, bubble wrap and all the usual packing materials you'd associate with a house move. Great for other uses too, such as eBay sales, we have a variety of cardboard box sizes in stock. If you're after some advice with regards to removals firms, we'd be happy to recommend some for you to choose from - trusted and respected local firms that we've built a relationship with over a decade of being in business.
Opening a storage facility in the Somerset county town of Taunton was the second Somerset self storage site that we opened and was, for many years, manned by local hunk Jon Whitfield (don't worry, he's still with us at our Head office in Bridgwater and writing web site copy). Since opening in 2009 the site has seen many improvements to the storage units with a lot of money invested over that time. The site has become highly streamlined and has had many upgrades to both the security and the move in procedure - let's face it no one wants to sit around doing paperwork when they've got a load of items to move.
Nicely located just a few miles from the town centre in Norton Fitzwarren, our Taunton site is easy to get to and impossible to miss. The site itself is fully accessible to vehicles, making it easy to move your goods in and out as and when you need to. We can offer you 24 hour entry so should you work early mornings and need to get in to your room to collect your tools or supplies, then you should be storing with us in Taunton. Imagine the scene - a lazy Sunday morning turns in to wanting to get out on the lake and catch some fish with the kids, but where are the fishing rods? In the storage room!! Not a problem, drive down to the site, enter your unique gate code and find what you need. Now that's not something that just any storage company offers. It's just one of the many benefits that you'll receive when storing with us. We keep the whole site very well lit no matter what the time of year, so if you are one of the lucky few that comes on to site during the small hours, you can always find your way to your unit - the units themselves are not lit so customers either use their headlights or you can bring a torch or light with you.
Our rooms aren't just used during house moves you know, we've had customers storing for many different reasons, from the slightly bizarre to the downright ludicrous. We don't ask or need to know what you're storing, as long as it's legal and not dangerous, and there aren't really many situations in which self storage can't help you out. We tend to find that the more odd the reason for storing, the more likely the customer is to want to tell us about it. As an added security extra, we ensure that the locks that we use are unique and are unable to be picked. We import them from the United States of America and they are probably the safest lock money can buy. You also keep hold of all the keys, ensuring that no one but yourself has access to your room and your goods. Just make sure you don't lose them!
There are some great options available if you're looking for storage in Somerset, but we think that our facility is second to none. With all the rooms being on the ground floor, pretty much all inconveniences are removed, aside from having to move your goods in and out of course. Maybe consider hiring a removals firm to do the move for you and to take a lot of the stress out of moving. We can recommend a couple of companies you can look at if you don't already have someone in mind to help you. There are no stairs to contend with or no winding maze of corridors, you can simply choose one of our prime storage rooms and park right outside your room. You also have the option to pay slightly less and have what is still a very short walk to your room.
Security is our prerogative at all of our sites as you will be able to tell if you've ever been on to one. From the unique locks that we use to secure the rooms, to the key coded entry system, it starts to feel like Fort Knox.
Chard is the most rural town in Somerset that we have a facility in, you'll see us from almost any direction that you drive in to the town. Prominently positioned on Furnham Road, we're a great choice if you need local, secure and modern storage. Somerset has so many small villages and towns, but from wherever you're based you're sure to not be very far from a quality UK Storage Company facility. We've streamlined the move in process to save our customers time and effort. We have the ability to complete a move in with a customer without them having to even leave their house, however we'd love you to come down and take a look around and see for yourself how well suited our sites are for your storage needs.
As well as the standard hours of opertation in Chard (Monday to Friday 8am to 6pm, 9am to 6pm on a Saturday and 10am - 4pm on a Sunday) we are also pleased to be able to offer extended hours to all our customers. This means we are the only company in the area to be able to offer access 7 days a week.
We're always looking to open more sites wherever we can, so keep your eyes open for the next UK Storage Company site in Somerset.

Security is paramount at all our sites, but here we really have gone above and beyond expectations – The entire site is surrounded by our 2.4-metre-high perimeter fence, and the CCTV system ensures that if anything moves – it is recorded.

Difficult to elaborate about storage because ultimately you store "stuff". What you can speak about though is friendly service, helpful advice etc and U.K. storage do very well in these departments. I am very pleased with the service I have received and would recommend uk storage.
We have recently used uk storage for storing our belongings between house moves. We were very happy with the professionalism of staff and their helpful manner on the phone. The process was very straightforward to set up and to closedown and our belongings were safely and securely stored with no weather or damp damage. We would definitely use them again.
Exemplary customer service from beginning to end. Storage straight forward to use and very competitively priced. Highly recommended.
I used the storage facilities when going through a separation. I found the storage very clean and very accessible. I could add or take things away when I needed and help was just a phone call away. I would recommend to any one for short or long periods and price very reasonable.
Trouble free service and support over the last 2+ years with all of our goods that were in storage remaining in perfect condition
Great customer service, everything is always so easy to do. Happy to add or remove storage as I need it with no fuss. Storage unit are clean, secure and easy to access on a clean and tidy site.
Very good indeed. 24 hour access for the first few weeks worked well as we moved stuff bit by bit. Similar for the last few weeks as we moved stuff out. Admin staff easy to deal with over the phone and knew answer quickly to everything we needed. Would use UK Storage again and recommend to others.
I have to say I got excellent service from the UK storage company. Everything went smoothly & effortlessly. Got my code & keys for entrance, never had any problems. I would definitely use them again & I have referred my friends & family to them.
Needing a storage facility in Plymouth then don't waste time looking elsewhere. My Wife and I needed a storage unit locally for an unspecified time. I contacted UK storage among others. I was delighted with their quote and brilliantly flexible terms and approach to business. On occasions where I needed outside of hours access for a nominal charge no problem. The unit was clean, water tight and well. signed as was the whole site. At the conclusion of my rental following my move to France my account was in credit. This was promptly refunded to my bank account with no chasing. Evey member of staff who I spoke to was a great ambassador for the Company. All in all based on my experience UK Storage Company will take some beating. I highly recommend them and thank them for a great experience.
I have used this storage facility on three occasions over the last two years, and the standard of not only the facilities, but the customer service is outstanding. Staff at this company clearly all have the same high level of training, and have superb interpersonal skills. Any queries, no matter how small, are no problem. Not sure about something? Give them a call. In addition to this, the level of security awareness is second to none. Across the board, this company has not let us down, and I do not hesitate to recommend them.
Excellent service from the team at UK Storage Co. I had to arrange storage at very short notice for the summer and was able to sort out all the paperwork electronically and move in within an hour. The unit and whole compound were spotless; storage secure and any questions I raised by email were answered quickly and comprehensively. I will definitely use them again.
Moving house is stressful enough, we were downsizing and needed storage to hold belongings until we knew what was staying or going. These guys were great, brilliant communication, easy process and when we needed to downsize our unit they were very helpful in arranging this too. Entry to the unit easy to use and we are very happy with the service and price.
I used UK Storage Company's Plymouth City Centre site near Cattedown to store items during a house move. I was genuinely very impressed by the whole service provided. The customer service team were very helpful, friendly and amenable, the service was quick and easy to set up over the phone, the unit was far better than I was expecting and kept all of my items dry and safe. The 24-hour access was unbelievably useful and it was easy to add / remove this feature. When I was done it was a hassle free process to end the service and the team were just as helpful as they were at the start up. All in all a brilliantly run service, I would, and have, recommend this to anyone needing a storage solution! Thanks UK Storage!
Great service, helpful people; I highly recommend the UK Storage Company. Give them a try. You won't be disappointed. I've already passed their details on to a friend of mine!
Fantastic experience. They have great customer service and great packages: including (at time of purchase) free 24 hour access for the first month to help move in to the unit. Very friendly staff and clean units with a competitive price. Would highly recommend!
I used UK Storage for a couple of months in-between house moves. They were fantastic and great value for money - their admin support is fast and effective and the facility itself was clean and very secure, with helpfully placed trolleys by the entrance. I would absolutely use this company again, and recommend them highly.
A positive experience. Convenient, easy to use facility. The customer service is excellent. Staff always sound genuinely cheerful on the phone.
Very easy to set up and use, units clean with great access and trolleys always available
Friendly staff are great to deal with, both locally and at their head office accounts department. UK Storage delivers a refreshingly personal service and I would recommend them to anyone needing a storage solution.
I would absolutely recommend this company when it comes to storage. Their prices are reasonable, the units are easy to access, and the staff on the phone were helpful every time I needed to call them. I wish all companies had the same mentality as these guys when it comes to customer service!
Secure storage with easy access and excellent value. Very helpful, friendly staff and quick and easy to set up, all arranged over the telephone. Completely hassle-free. Thoroughly recommended.
Me and my wife had things stored here for 5 months and I can say I can only recommend this as a solution for other People who are moving home/long term travelling/ or just need to store their furniture and other things. The team was very helpful every time I called them. The access to the storage facilities is easy, instructions that you get are clear and the storage unit we have was clean and well ventilated. Nothing got damp or damaged, all of our furniture survived - even computers and computer screens. Overall great experience, will definitely use these facilities in the future when/if I will need storage unit. Oh and btw the prices are very good, we actually live far away, but even with hiring a van to drive to Gloucester + petrol, the costs were vastly more economical than any other local solution. So you know, if budget is a thing you are considering, you can only win with this company.
Very good storage and cheap price.;)
My partner and I used the UK Storage Company for 7 months whilst we moved her property from Manchester to Gloucester and were looking for somewhere to live in the area. We were given a competitive quote with initial discount for the first 3 months and the whole process was very easy and took the stress out of finding somewhere to store our belongings. The unit we rented was clean and easy to access and the staff were always friendly and helpful when we needed to contact them with a query. When we finally found somewhere to move to, we contacted UK Storage to notify them. Again they were very helpful and the whole process of ending our rental of the storage unit was stress free. As payment had been taken prior to our giving notice, we were only charged for a week that we still needed the storage unit and refunded the difference for 3 weeks which was dealt with quickly and efficiently. I would highly recommend the UK Storage Company to anyone wishing to store possessions securely and safely (we managed to get a two bed terrace house worth of property into a 90 sq. ft. unit!!) and at an affordable rate.
From initial contact to moving our stuff into our new home you guys at UK Storage have given us 5 star treatment. The site is clean and easy to find. All queries have been dealt with quickly and efficiently. I can throroughly recommend.
Booking through the UK Storage team is first class and ease of access to the storage unit made the whole process straightforward. It was a cost effective way to temporarily store household items whilst we moved home.
A first class operation. Clean secure storage units. Friendly, helpful professional staff. I can fully recommend the Chard UK Storage Company.
When we moved house recently we needed to store a large number of items whilst working on our new property,we are so glad we found uk storage in Chard,nothing was too much trouble for them,we changed the date we needed the unit & extended the hire period all with ease. The units are very secure/clean/easy to access & they have different size units to suit everybody. If we need to store items again we will use uk storage.
When first phoning to enquire the people I spoke to were extremely helpful as I had no idea what I really required. They were very professional and really knew the services UK Storage could offer. They explained what would be the best service for my requirements and didn't try to fob me off with more expensive storage. I have to say they were spot on with the size etc. The site was easy to access for customers but I would say not so easy for anyone who shouldn't be there. Security was excellent and I lost no sleep worrying wether my valued possessions would be safe. Cleanliness of the site and units was second to none absolutely spotless. Would highly recommend UK Storage for great value for money, security, cleanliness but mostly for the excellent customer service they offer.
Very helpful people,very competitive pricing, and so easy to use
I have used this facility several times in the past years. On every occasion my needs have been handled in a very professional but equally helpful and personal manner. Once when the chosen unit was not big enough they found me a larger unit in minutes and sorted the paperwork out while the movers filled it. I would never hesitate to recommend this very economic storage facility and all their fantastic staff who go the extra mile to help. Matt, Ryan and the team, thank you for all your help.
I actually didn’t expect it to be so easy. We’ve asked the storage company for all sorts of help and advice and each time our query has been answered, forms returned, storage ready as promised and even a refund when I moved up a size. The call goes straight through to a friendly human being who has all facts at their fingertips. Well done.
Very easy to use. Secure, clean, tidy. Cheerful staff (when you see them!)
Good clean units, easy access with lift and trolleys and friendly and helpful staff
This was the first time I'd used a storage unit and chose this one initially for the low price. The unit was very clean and dry, access was easy as was turning space. There are many units at the site and I did wonder if there would be problems with access etc during busy periods but there was plenty of room with people coming and going. The rates were very reasonable and the unit I used was fine re space for furniture etc. Just make sure you book the right sized unit for what you need to store. All staff for telephone support were most helpful from initial enquiry to end of use. No problems with direct debit being cancelled as this was done straight away with the 2 weeks notice of leaving. At first glance from the road the site, although fresh and modern doesn't look exciting but once inside the area you will find it spotless and tidy. No rubbish or weeds etc. Oh' and there were free plastic furniture covers available to use which was a big help. Many thanks..Jayne.
I used UK storage for a short period when moving house. They were great. The storage was secure, dry, easily accessible and clean. There were no traps in the finance, and being able to quit with two weeks notice kept the bill down. When I had to phone to check things out I spoke to a helpful person without any telephone queueing.
Great customer service. Easy to use and find. Clean and secure. If needed in the future, I will definitely be using you guys again. Thanks.
Brilliant company to use, I used UK Storage because after alot of research at the time they were coming back as the cheapest and most secure! Friendly staff, clean units and well maintained grounds. Will use again when needed in the future!
Needed some short term storage for a between house move. Dealt with Megan who was refreshingly so efficient !! She always returned my emails quickly and helped me decide the size of unit. The unit was clean and dry and access nice and simple. When I had finished I gave notice and my payments I had made were refunded with no chasing necessary. I would definitely use again.
Uk storage at Bridgewater was excellent from start to finish, they held my unit for weeks with a ten pound deposit. The place is clean and tidy and the staff very friendly and also offer free tea and coffee.
I used this storage last month. The staff were friendly and understanding. They explained their procedures clearly and nothing was too much trouble. I even had the free hire of their van for a day to move my stuff in. Access was easy, unloading made easy by the use of their trollies and sack truck. Well done Richard and the team, would do business again if need arose Thank you. William Kinsella
Really helpful, friendly staff. Simple to set up and even simpler to increase storage space. Can’t rate these guys enough. Thank you.
Having got quotations from other local storage companies I chose Uk Storage to place my belongings. The monthly fees charged were by far the most competitive of all to start with and when I viewed that facility I was given a tour and all questions/concerns I had were answered with ease. I felt confident of placing my life's belongings with UK storage in Bridgwater. I finally collected my belongings 2 years later and was greeted with exactly the same high level of customer service. Well done guys and thanks, no problem whatsoever of recommending you to all. Regards W.Andrews
A pleasant, courteous and helpful team. The units were clean and spacious. I had full confidence, as a lady, using the storage as I knew there was good monitored security. I have no hesitation in recommending this company.
Excellent customer service. Very prompt in setting up contract and giving entry codes. Very clean storage. Pleanty of parking and able to reverse right up to entry doors to load/unload. Pleanty of trolleys available for transporting belongings. Workmen I met on site were really helpful and cheerful. Although I have never used a storage facility before so have nothing to compare it to I think it would be difficult to get better as they have thought of everything to make using the place easy. Would definitely recommend.
It is easy to book the space that you require and they have a good range of spaces, to suit your need. The whole place is clean and it is clear that the unit is cleaned out, before you take it on. Access is easy, once you get your entry code. Overall I would rate this place.
I was relocating from Taunton to Düsseldorf in Germany, I used UK Storage to store my belongings during the transition. The storage was good value for money, easy to set-up and secure. Their customer service was second to none. Even went contacting from Germany they were easy to get hold of and always happy to help. They made what could have been a very stressful move carefree.
Super clean storage. Cheaper than I expected. Helpful staff. I've used them more than once and recommend them to anyone in Taunton looking for storage. I had a unit from December to October storing house stuff - no signs of damp or anything. 10/10 - would store with then again.
I just moved back from Malta and needed to store my things whilst looking for somewhere to live. I found the staff very friendly and helpful and the process was simple and straight-forward. The unit was ideal and the prices very good too. Easy access to the depot, it could not have gone better. I would recommend this company.
This storage was clean and the service very easy to use. When I had finished using the storage my refund was sorted very quickly. Would use this again and highly recommend.
For the past two years we have had to store the family belongings of our late daughter's home , We rented first one and then two units from UK Storage just outside of Norton Fitzwarren on the A358. Dealing with the staff of UK Storage was a pleasure throughout. They are friendly, precise and very helpful indeed. The units themselves are excellent - dry, clean and very secure and, at the same time, accessible. We would recommend the UK Storage facilities to anyone whether their needs were short term or long term. We are big fans and very satisfied customers. Michael Reynolds
Polite, efficient and very helpful, and the price compared to other companies was good too. Highly recommended!
Needed a unit quickly and locally! The team dealt with my query so professionally and swiftly. The storage unit was brilliant and access easy. Safe and very secure plus clean. Great value for money!
Very simple process to obtain accessible storage at an affordable price. Read the paperwork, understood the charges and followed the rules for cancellation. Refund for unpaid use was very quick to appear in my account. Would recommend this company and facility.
Excellent secure service... Easy to use and the staff are excellent in setting you up.
Nice easy to use facility
Thank you to UK Storage company, who came highly recommended to me, for your superb customer service. I was impressed how well my belongings stored for the best part of a year and without my checking on them, when opening the storage unit all I could smell was fresh wood. I feel you went out of your way to accommodate my needs and you were happy to give me by far the best rate around. I fully recommend UK Storage Company in Bedminster, Bristol to anyone who is looking for a short or long term storage solution.
I viewed the prices of a few different local storage companies and this one gave one of the best quotes for the time I needed. Furthermore it was easy to set up the booking and easy to move my stuff into the storage, no complaints at all.
I found the staff very helpful, nothing was too much trouble. the storage facilities were good, clean and with good access, I would not hesitate to use them again if the need arose.
Used this for three months while moving house. It's central and easy to reach, easy to park right in front of your unit. No problems whatsoever, charges clear and straightforward, no hidden surprises; customer service was impressive - a real, knowledgeable, friendly and professional person picking up the phone and able to help/answer straight away. Would use again anytime, highly recommend.
I've had nothing but positive experiences whilst dealing with UK Storage Company. I've used them on more than one occasion and every time they are quick, courteous and professional! Their customer service is second to none and I would recommend them to anyone. Keep up the good work!
Great people to deal with. Everything went smoothly and I had no problems at all. The unit was lovely and clean and the padlock and key were all ready for me. Dead easy access with the passcode gate and the location. I'd definitely recommend to friends and family.
We chose UK Storage Company in Avonmouth as it is easily accessible from the Motorway and you can drive straight up to the storage unit for easy unloading. No need for trolleys and lifts. We had a choice of unit sizes and the administration was all done over the phone and online and was very straightforward. The whole site is very clean and feels very secure. I would certainly use again and recommend to friends.
When I rang for prices & size of unit I was greeted by a friendly voice and given very clear detail. When I needed help when in the unit it was given good service too. On leaving the unit it was also a very pleasant service. I would highly recommend this storage company, Jane.
