In 2019 we acquired our third site in Marylebone London, situated on the junction of Rossmore Road and Park Road. Occupying the ground floor and basement of a block of flats, it is, a former NCP car park. The facility will provide convenient, local, self-storage for people who live or work in the areas of Marylebone, Baker Street, Westminster, Maida Vale, Little Venice, St John’s Wood and generally across the NW London postcodes.
Whilst the car park format had the benefit of providing a large open space, the setting is perhaps not the most conducive to creating a new, modern, stylish, light and airy self-storage facility for local residents. To give you an idea, here’s an image of what the site looked like when the work started.
We do like a challenge at Attic though, so we began work at the end of 2019 on the transformation to state-of-the-art storage facility. We did anticipate some challenges, although perhaps not quite in the form of a global pandemic. This meant that we had to adapt our methods and find new ways to progress with the development. We are very grateful to the residents of Rossmore Court for their patience with us during this phase of our development. Work on site has been extensive and included elements such as:
The new site will have units from 10 square feet upwards, including some drive up units for added convenience. As well as providing secure, self-storage units with 24 hour access, excellent customer service and support at every step of the self-storage process, units at our new Marylebone site will have key-less locks for additional peace of mind and convenience. The locks will be controlled by an app. This mean that the customer has complete control and visibility over who accesses their unit. They will also be able to delegate access to whomever they wish for as little or as long a time as they like whilst receiving notifications every time their unit is accessed. All without having to hand over any physical keys or remembering codes. We really do believe that our new Marylebone self-storage facility will provide the simplest self-storage solution available.
We are pleased to be able to say that the work is now nearing completion and that we will be opening the doors to our first customers in early August. You can already see prices and reserve a unit here.
We have recruited a new customer service team and they have just completed the intensive Attic training course to enable them to deliver the highest levels of customer service that are associated with Attic Self Storage. Our team can advise on any aspect of storage, from the best size of unit for your needs through to moving and logistics. If you have any questions you can speak to a member of our Marylebone store team by calling 020 3985 6700.
We’re proud to be able to say that we pay the London Living Wage to all employees and we will also be actively supporting our local community in Marylebone too. We’re currently asking for your opinion on which local good causes we should support. You can vote for your choice here and there is a free prize draw for all those who vote before the end of July 2020. We will be a donation to all of these charities and a donation for every vote received. Find out more, including the T&Cs on our voting page.
