What is self storage?

Stirling Self Storage will bring storage vaults inside the trailer to your location, leave the trailer and vault for you to load and then come back and pick up the trailer and full vault when you have finished.  (A 4 hour allowance is made for loading.)  The vault is then forklifted off the trailer into our warehouse, stored until you ask for it to be brought back which is the reverse of the collection procedure.  You will seal the container up with a padlock or similar to make it secure.

Is self storage the right solution for me?

Self storage is perfect for you if:

  • You are moving home and need space to store your items 
  • You are renovating your home and need somewhere to store your furniture
  • You wish to de-clutter your space
  • You want to store excess stock, equipment, office furniture and documents
  • You are a student and would like to hire some space to store your belongings during your summer break
What can I store?

You can store most things. However, for safety reasons you can’t store food or perishable items, combustible, flammable substances or items obtained illegally.

You obviously also can’t store firearms, explosives, weapons or ammunition, chemicals, radio-active materials, etc or goods which are environmentally harmful. Currencies, deeds and securities are not allowed in either nor are items which are unique or have significant sentimental value to you.

If in doubt, please contact us for expert advice.

Do I need my own padlock?

Yes. This ensures that only you will have access to your goods. We keep padlocks in stock and will be happy to bring one along on request.

What size are the mobile storage units?

Our storage pods are 8ft high with a base of 7ft x 5ft. Or 2.4m high with a base of 2.1m X  1.8m.

Do you offer a flexible collection and delivery service?

Yes. We will deliver a vault to your door at a time that suits you. We’ll collect your belongings and store it at our facility. We’ll deliver your items back to you once you let us know a date for return of your storage vault.

How much does self storage cost?

We make a charge of £36 inclusive of VAT to place the vault at your premises for loading. 

Weekly storage is £14.40 inclusive of VAT.  Redelivery within Stirling is also £36 inclusive of VAT. 

In addition, goods have to be insured and we can provide insurance for as little as £1 plus IPT for £1,000 worth of cover per week.

How quickly can this be arranged?

This depends upon the availability of transport and storage vaults.  Please get in touch with us and we will try and make arrangements that work for you.

What areas do you cover?

We operate a collection and delivery service throughout Stirling.  For collections or deliveries further afield, our removal service offered through Clark & Rose can arrange national and international deliveries.

Can I change my storage vault delivery date?

Yes. We advise you to inform us at least 48 hours in advance.
