Newly built for us in 2016, M&G self store is a self access storage facility open to both domestic and commercial sectors.
Our secure, purpose built, temperature controlled premises offer competitive rates on a wide range of varying sized units; all of which are 10 ft high, giving an unrivalled amount of usable stacking height.
We feel we’re unique in that here, you can talk to and meet people who actually know how to pack storage units, calculate volume and have a frame of reference appropriate for what you, the customer needs. You won’t find people blankly reading from a script at this facility.
M&G self store offers a full 24 hour security system incorporating CCTV for full peace of mind while your goods are in store.
Our opening hours are Monday to Friday 08.00 – 17.30 and Saturdays 08.30 – 13.30. There are no hidden costs (such as access charges) and we supply your padlock FREE OF CHARGE!
Our units are on ground level or 1st floor accessed by a very large goods lift and, with three easy access doors, you can guarantee that reaching your unit will be a simple easy process, with no flights of stairs to contend with!
Onsite are a number of flat bed trolleys, pump trucks and stack trucks to assist with the loading and unloading of heavy items and, for commercial users, we will accept all deliveries FREE OF CHARGE – this includes any forklift services. Business customers can also use us as a postal address, which can be a helpful addition to any company!
Aside from internal units, M&G self store offers shipping containers as another storage solution. These come in sizes of 20ft or 40ft and are perfect for ease of access as your vehicle can pull right up to the door. If you would like more information on these please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Most people, when considering storage, think in terms of square footage which is perfectly understandable, as all storage companies charge by the square foot. Not all storage units are the same however.
Whatever it is you wish to store, be it/they are personal effects, stock, files, or the contents of your home, the goods will have a cubic volume and it is this that is important.
If you have two storage units, both are 150sqft but one is 7ft high and the other is 10ft high then the difference in available space is staggering. The first, smaller one will provide you with 1050 cubic feet of space to fill, whereas the second will provide you with 1500 cubic feet of space to fill. Or, to put it another way the second unit with the higher roof offers 30% more space for what will probably be the same monthly cost.
When you look at storage companies never compare square footage – look for the overall capacity of the unit, as this is not only far more revealing and relevant, but will lead you to think about how you will use the space.
For reference: having now effected more than 30,000 home surveys the surveyors for M&G agree that the average size home contains goods equating to 1500 cubic feet. If you are phoning around for 100sqft units based upon what somebody working for a storage company, who has never in their life even packed a storage unit has told you we would urge you to call us and speak to people who have prepared, moved and packed household goods for 30 years.
