How much does it cost to store at Big Bear Self Storage?2022-01-07T17:44:22+00:00

The price you pay is determined by the size of the room you need and we will always get you into the smallest space possible. 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
  • How high the ceiling of the storage room is
  • Where the storage room is located in the storage centre, generally ground floor is more expensive
  • 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.

How much notice do you need?2022-01-08T14:30:50+00:00

We ask for 14 days notice.

Are our goods safe?2022-01-11T20:36:18+00:00

We have 24-hour monitored CCTV as well as alarms and a manned reception desk during our opening times. Additionally, our customers use their own padlocks & keys meaning nobody else can access another’s storage room or goods.

Are there any restrictions on what I can store?2022-01-11T20:38:16+00:00

You can keep almost anything in one of our units, from boxes to sofas, tables to snowboards, bikes to memorabilia, almost anything and everything you have in your home or workplace that you don’t have the space for. As long as it’s not flammable, dangerous, perishable, unlawful and of course… alive!

Do I need a padlock?2022-01-11T20:39:40+00:00

Yes, you need your own padlock to ensure that you are the sole key holder for your room and so you can make sure that your room is securely locked at all times. We stock a range of security padlocks at Reception available to buy.
