We provide all the different storage options at our storage facility in nearby Newhaven. For a student who wants to store personal effects during their university holiday we would recommend our self-store as we have suitable small units this method of storage also suits those who require regular access to their belongings. For household furniture storage if we carry out the work for you we recommend pod-storage as this reduces the amount we handle your goods, as once loaded the pods are forklifted into store and forklifted back on to the lorry for delivery. Pod storage is more economical than self-storage so we are happy for you to bring your belongings and we will place a pod ready for you to load. Finally, we have drive-up units which have a capacity of 1,000 cu.ft (28.5 cbm) and are most suitable for outside effects, heavy and large items and offer easy and flexible access.Learn More
