Self Storage Containers UK

Secure Stores Nationwide have over a decade’s experience in self storage. Whether you’re looking to buy or rent, you won’t beat our top-quality boxes, unrivalled customer service and rapid turnaround.

Our storage containers come engineered with user-friendly design and safety features as standard. These include added ventilation, waist-height door handles, eco-friendly wipe clean bamboo floors and high-security padlock boxes. Easy-open door handles are also available.

Setting up a self storage site or looking to grow your business? We offer free business advice. Get in touch or check out our guides on starting and marketing your shipping container storage business.

8ft, 10ft, 20ft and 40ft are standard shipping container sizes and we recommend self storage customers buy or rent a combination of sizes. It’s also a good idea to invest in some removable steel partitions for use with double-ended units. This will give you the flexibility to adapt as your customers’ needs change.

To maximise space, many self storage customers choose to stack containers at double height. We supply stairs and loading platforms to ensure upper-level containers are easily accessible. We also stock a range of containers designed specifically for the self storage market including multi-compartment units.

We advise getting in touch as soon as possible during planning. We’re dab hands at “container Tetris” and can help you plan your site and establish the most appropriate mix of sizes.
