What you can’t store

For your safety, the safety of other tenants and the whole facility, there are some things you cannot store.

You’ll find the full list in article 2.9 of our Terms and Conditions, but as a rule of thumb, it mainly comes down to common sense. A few examples of what you cannot store (not exhaustive):

  • explosive, flammable, toxic, corrosive, environmentally hazardous, chemical and other hazardous materials that can cause serious damage if spilled or opened
  • food and other perishables or anything that can cause mould, bacteria or infestations
  • waste and all possible waste materials
  • anything stolen or illegal such as drugs, firearms and explosives

And please never be tempted to use your unit for professional purposes or accommodation – even for the odd night.
