Has anyone any experiences with Self-Storage companies in the SE1 area between London Bridge and Deptford? We need about 100 square feet.

We looked at Access, which is off Grange Road. They have excellent facilities but are quite expensive.

We spotted two others - one under the railway arches next to Crucifix Road and TowerBridge Road and another in Deptford near the big Shell garage between Surrey Quays and Greenwich, but we haven't been in to check.

I looked into this a few years back and the place in Druid St just inside the congestion zone was cheaper than the the place in the Old Kent Rd. (sorry about forgetting their names).

If I was to do look again I'd check out the place by the hump back bridge/Shell garage you mention on Lower Rd. (Big Yellow?)

There's a new Safestore on Old Jamaica Rd that's got a sign up saying 50% off, lowest prices guaranteed.

24 Hour access as well, looks worth trying.

Used 1st for storage by waterloo. Never again!! After 2 weeks my storage boxes were covered in mold and smelt damp. I lost alot of paperwork. The staff didnt want to know and I actually felt quite threatened by them.
I am now using self store on old kent road which is clean bright and friendly!

I know you specified SE1, but as you also mentioned Deptford I thought I'd throw in a personal recommendation for the Deptford (SE8) branch of Safestore. I rented a unit there for a long time - the facility was clean, dry and well-kept, and the staff were friendly. They also have some good introductory offers (though you can probably do better if you get quotes from other places and play them off against each other!)

The other place I'm aware of (but haven't used) is ABC Self Storage, on Ossory Road (off the OKR behind Asda).

I've tried all of the above for bigvan. Now I only use ABC on Ossory Road for my personal stuff or my clients. No nonsense, no attitude, easy access, realistic prices.

Following on from Graham I also recommend ABC Selfstore on Ossory Road. My father-in-law has also used them when he was moving office a while back and they've got a good team there and it seems pretty good value for money too. The full address is:

ABC Selfstore
54-80 Ossory Road
