Is it safe?

Thames Self Storage offers a safe and secure storage solution:

  • We use double skinned, steel shipping containers that will protect all your goods from all the elements.
  • Our sites are protected by CCTV, overhead lighting, and security patrols.
  • We have an Access Control System for the only entry and exit point into the facility, which enables us to monitor and control all entries to the site.
  • We consider that our containers are more secure than warehouses because fire is unlikely to spread from one container to another, whilst vermin cannot move between one storage unit and another.

If I need long term storage, do you offer any deals?

Thames Self Storage allows people to store their goods for long or short periods without the need to commit to a time-frame. For longer term users (12 months or more) we are able to offer discounts for advance payment.

Can I get to my goods when I want to?

Once you have signed your contract, (which is done on an appointment basis to avoid disappointment), 24/7 access is automatically available to all storage users without any need for further appointments. You can have access any time, day or night, including Sundays and all Bank Holidays.

How accessible is the storage area?

You can drive your vehicle right up to your unit for easy loading and unloading. There are no corridors or long passageways, and no lifts. If you have chosen to store upstairs you will need to climb just 13 broad steps that take you right into your unit.

What if I don’t know when I am going to leave?

You do not have to decide an exit date right away. Many of our customers require a contract which is open ended. This allows you to know your storage is available for as long as you need it. Once you know when you want to leave we ask for two weeks notice and you will be charged only for the exact time you have used. If your plans change just call us and we will be flexible in organising new dates for you.

What notice do I need to give to leave my storage unit?

Thames Self Storage only requires 14 days’ notice of termination which can be given by phone, e mail or post or you can elect a definite exit date at the start of your contract.

Will you collect my goods from my house?

We offer a self storage solution, so I am afraid we do not collect or deliver goods for you. However we have got to know several good and reliable local providers and would be happy to pass on their contact details should you so wish.

If you are hiring a van to organise your own transfer please be aware that at weekends the well known brand names in the van rental industry are often booked up well in advance.
