Moving into your Self – Storage Unit

Now that you have reserved your storage unit, you can make final preparations to move your belongings in to storage.

We have outlined the process here so you can prepare for your visit.

1. Visit the Facility to meet the in store team.

It is always best to visit the store prior to your moving date to meet the store team, view your unit and learn about the use of the facility.

This is a great time to make sure that your chosen unit will fit your requirements – if it doesn’t, we will help you choose another that does.

2. Sign your Agreement

Before moving in to your storage unit, you will be asked to sign a rental agreement with us. This may be done in store or online.

Please bring with you:

  • Valid Photo ID (ID card, Driving License, Passport)
  • Proof of Address (a utility bill, bank statement, mortgage statement, council tax letter less than 3 months old)
  • For business rental we require proof that you are authorised to take out an agreement for the company. This is in the way of a letter from a director.
  • Payment Card and bank details to set up Direct Debit

The rental agreement is a rolling monthly agreement, with no long term commitment.

3. Pay for your first Month

Your monthly rental price will be clearly explained to you. There are a couple of other costs you must consider.

  • Storage Insurance: All goods need to be protected whilst in storage. Greenbox can offer you StoreProtect which will cover your goods whilst they are in storage. Prices start at £1.66 per week. Read MOre HEre
  • Lock: You will need a special cylinder lock which you can purchase for £13.00.

These items will be included in your first payment.

4. Accessing your unit

You will be provided with an access code. This is unique to you and you will need it to enter the premises and open the security doors.

Access Hours:

You can come and go as you please during our access hours which are 7am – 7pm, seven days a week.

Ask a question

A Self storage facility is a secure building where customers rent a unit based upon its size for the storage of personal belongings, household goods, business stock etc. Many customers find self storage beneficial, as the agreements are short term, flexible, and allow you to be in control of the space you require, with the flexibility to move up and down in size as and when needed.

1. Decide the size unit that you require. You can use our space estimator, or call / pop in to store to discuss.
2. Let us know the date you wish to move in.
3. Complete a simple agreement form either in store or online & pay the first months rental.
4. You are free to move in.

Our minimal rental period is one week, however you can stay as long as you need the space for.

You can easily move to a bigger/smaller room so that you only pay for the space that you really need at any time.
