They're Security Storage (anyone with a name like that sounds like it'll be more expensive than a typical self-storage like ABC or Access!). Still there, so I'll call to get a quote, thanks.
However, most of the storage companies that publish their rates on their web sites are asking around £100 per month for about 50 sq ft (7'x7' or 8'x6') which compares poorly with a lock up garage (at least twice the size - say 12-16 feet long by 8 ft wide) at a typical £100 per month (although they range from 70-200 per month depending on location and convenience for commuters).
A couple of local price guides for example from those listed in the Property section on this site:
ABC Self Store
1st for Storage
And of course you can usually back a car up to a lock-up, whereas these storage units usually require a long walk with a trolley, possibly up in a lift - not the world's biggest problem, but it turns a 5 minute drop-off in to a 10-15 minute job. Impatient, aren't I....
My ideal solution is one of those garages in Pocock Street
, or in a Frazier Street
block. Here's hoping.
