What is self storage?
Self storage is a relatively recent service industry. Self storage centers have a selection of room sizes that you can hire from a locker of 1,28 m3 up to a room of 51 m3, short or long term. You bring your goods or possessions to the storage centre, lock them in the room and come and go as you please during opening hours. You are the only key holder. You can store almost anything unless it is perishable, live or flammable.
The best way to find out how self storage works at isafe is to drop into our storage site.
If it's not convenient to drop in please don't hesitate to contact us by telephone or email.

How much does it cost to store with isafe?
The price you pay is determined by the size of the room you need. As the rental charge is calculated according to the floor area of the storage room, the smaller the floor area the less you end up paying.
Estimating the space you need isn't as simple and straightforward as it looks. It depends on:
- What you need to store
- How stackable it is
- What sort of access you will need since you may want to leave a walkway through the storage room to get to your possessions.
We can advise you on how to stack your goods and possessions to make maximum use of the space.
What is the minimum rental period?
You can store for as little or as long as you like. The minimum rental fee is one month.
Do I pay weekly or monthly?
We'll invoice you on a monthly basis, payable in advance. However, we only ask for seven days notice when you vacate your room and we refund to you any unused storage charges.
