In order to rent a Space Station storage room, you'll need the following:
- A photo ID – a valid passport or driving license photocard
- Proof of address – a bank statement or utility bill from within the last three months
- Contact details – your phone number, email and postal address, as well as alternative emergency contact details
Business accounts will also need:
- A purchase order
- A business bank account statement
- A copy of your letterhead
You'll also need to bring a padlock with you, to lock your unit. Though we do sell these in our on-site stores.
Just you – and whoever you give your key to. Our units are locked by a padlock, which you can either provide yourself or buy in our on-site store. The key is held by you and you alone.
There are a few things you can’t keep in one of our storage rooms – sorry to be sticklers, but it’s all for health, safety and legal reasons . Please do not try and store the following with us:
- Anything that can be construed as illegal under British law
- Perishables – food and drinks
- Combustibles and solvents – flammable items, cleaning supplies, fuels, grease and oils
- Living things – people, pets, and plants
- Cash and jewellery
- Waste of any kind, including toxic waste
All goods placed in self-storage with Space Station must be insured. You can organise your own insurance policy – your goods just need to be covered for all normal perils, for a sum that would compensate for full replacement for loss of damage, while in self-storage.
However, if your goods aren't already insured and aren’t sure what you need to organise yourself, then we can help by providing a bespoke self-storage insurance policy through Space Station.
You can make your first payment through credit or debit card, and then subsequent payments will be taken through direct debit. Your first payment will include a minimum of one month’s rental, and a refundable security deposit.
