Self Storage in London
With the size of homes in London becoming increasingly smaller, it’s really not feasible to have extra space in your home for storing things you don’t use regularly. Whether it’s those possessions that you just can’t bear to part with or even business stock that is taking over your living room. Consequently, self storage in London is fast becoming a popular choice. Attic Self Storage sites offer a wide choice of unit sizes in modern, light and safe environments that you can access 24 hours a day – whenever you want.
The first Attic Self Storage site was our Bow storage facility in East London which opened it’s doors in 2008. Kings Cross was the next to open and since then we have continued to expand across London with our Marylebone and Harrow storage sites. We will shortly be opening our brand new storage facility in Beckton, East London which incorporates the latest technology and will be a state-of-the-art facility.
North, South, East or West, wherever you are in London we’re sure to have a suitable storage unit for you.

The price that we quote for storage costs include all service charges, maintenance charges and rates and also VAT where this applies. In addition to your storage costs, we do charge one month’s rent in advance as a security deposit but this will be refundable when you move out. You will need to make sure you have adequate insurance but we are able to arrange this for you too. Other than that, you just need a padlock. You are welcome to bring your own or we do sell them in store too if this is easier. That’s it – there are no other charges. What’s more, unlike some other companies, we provide complimentary 24 hour free access, free WiFi, use of our trolleys and a free goods receipt and dispatch service. If you have any concerns about costs then please do speak to a member of our team.
We offer a bespoke, open cover insurance which means that you will be covered by our own insurance policy. We use specialist insurers with knowledge of the self storage industry and customer needs, who can therefore handle and process any claims quickly and with minimum hassle. We do need to charge for the administration costs of this cover which will be added to your storage costs. You are perfectly welcome to take out your own insurance cover but since it is a requirement of the UK Self Storage Association then we will have to ask for evidence that you have this in place before you can move your things in. Most of our customers do prefer to take our insurance as it is the most convenient option.
The next step is simply to complete our online check in before you move in. This is just the process for you to provide your ID and payment details and set up your account. The good news is that this can all be done online and at whatever time suits you – even the ID checks. This means that on move in day, we just have to run through a few safety details and show you to your unit. Of course, our team is always on hand to take you through this process on the phone or in store if you prefer.
At Attic Self Storage we usually ask customers to stay for a minimum of a week but you’re free to stay as long as you like and give notice to move out at any time. We do have a minimum spnd of £75. We will bill you monthly and then refund any unused rent when you move out of your unit. Whilst you’re with us you can upsize or downsize your unit or even take another one – it’s all completely within your control.
