What is the price of a self storage unit in London and the Thames Valley?

The price of a storage unit depends on a number of factors:

1. The storage size you need

We have different storage sizes available for rent ranging from a small 10 sq ft locker to a larger unit of 300 sq ft. Typically the larger the storage unit, the cheaper the square foot.

From our experience, most people tend to over-estimate the storage size they need. Our storage units are approximately 10 feet high, so you can easily stack your belongings. This means self storage units at Shurgard are cheaper than you think! By calculating the right unit size, you never have to pay more than you need.

2. The location of the storage facility

The closer you are to city centre the higher the prices will be. If you don’t need regular access to your storage unit, it’s worth considering a location further away from the city centre for cheaper storage prices.

3. The extent to which you would like Shurgard to be liable for any theft of, or damage to, your belongings.

If your belongings are damaged or stolen as a result of Shurgard’s failure to provide the storage service, Shurgard will accept liability for your loss up to a maximum agreed in advance with you (£50 unless otherwise agreed).

You may opt for SHURProtect where you can seek compensation in case of any theft of, or damage to, your belongings. The amount of the service fee will depend on the SHURProtect maximum.

What is included in our self storage prices?

Additional costs for self storage

These are the only extra costs you may need to pay:

One-off administration fee

We charge a one-off administration fee of £20 when you sign your first contract with us. Returning customers do not need to pay this fee.

SHURProtect (goods protection)

Although we make sure all our stores are fully insured, for your own peace of mind and protection, you’ll need to get protection for your stored items against loss or damage.

Our rental prices can’t include the fee for SHURProtect because the fee of this service depends on the maximum protection you need to protect your interests. The replacement value of your goods shall define the level of protection you need.

You may need to buy a new, sealed lock for £14.90 if your own lock does not fit, to guarantee no one else can access your storage unit.

Alternatives to self storage and how much they cost

Container storage

If you need to store large, bulky items such as a car or machinery, or other large items that are not sensitive to changes in temperature or damp, then container storage can be a solution for your storage needs.

However, this type of metal containers is located outdoors, they are usually unmanned and accessible to the public. The cost of renting a container is generally cheaper, but you lose the security and confidence that comes with self storage.

Providers such as Shurgard can offer a much safer environment for your stored goods and our store managers are available during office opening hours to assist and advise you.

Collect and delivery storage (Box storage)

The concept of box storage means that a company will collect your boxed items and take them to a storage facility. When you want your boxes back, the company will return them at an arranged time. This type of storage only works if you don’t need regular access to your belongings.

The price you will pay is per box, for collection as well as return. The downside of this storage concept is that you depend on the timeslots of the company, you don’t have any control over the safety, and you are unable to access your belongings once they’re stored.

If you want to know exactly where your items are stored and prefer to be fully in control of when you bring or pick up items, then self storage will work better for you. At Shurgard, your items are safe and always within reach, 7 days a week.

Removal depositories

Some removal companies also combine storage with a house move or home renovation. Your furniture and household goods will be stored away in large warehouses which you will normally not be able to access. The storage price will be included or added to the removal cost.

If you don’t need access to your belongings during your house move or home renovation, storage provided by your removal company may be a solution for your storage needs.

Nevertheless, if you prefer to have free access to your belongings and privacy as to what you store, than we advise you to rent a storage unit.
