Space Station – looking after your valuables since 1983.

Space Station is a self-storage company based in the Greater London area, with facilities across both London and Birmingham. Our company vision can be summarised in just three words: Standards of Excellence.


Our mission is to provide safe and secure self-storage facilities to businesses and private customers – something we’ve been doing for over 30 years.


Our history

Space Station was founded by Alastair Caldwell. Alastair is a former McLaren Formula 1 team manager who led the team during their glory years of 1974-76, and managed the legendary James Hunt. He was even a consultant on the recent blockbuster Rush which depicted the F1 season of ’76 and the much spoken about Hunt-Lauda rivalry. More information about Alastair and his racing history is available at

While touring the world with the McLaren F1 team, Alastair was impressed by the self-storage facilities across the US and decided to bring the business idea back across the pond, making Space Station one of the UK’s earliest storage pioneers. In October 2020 Space Station was acquired by Heitman, a global real estate investment management firm.

Our vision and mission

With standards of excellence at the heart of everything we do, we will enhance our customers’ journey and delight them at every step.

Our goal has always been to provide the best possible self-storage experience for our customers. Whether you need a locker or a warehouse, for a month or for years to come, our aim is to solve your storage problems. We take a lot of pride in our smart, clean and secure facilities, and in our helpful and friendly customer service.

We continue to invest in our staff training and development to ensure that they provide an exceptional service to you, our customer. We invest in our buildings to ensure that your goods are as safe and secure as they possibly can be; after all, our staff and our facilities are our reputation. We hope that we can welcome you in one of our stores very soon.

What we offer

We have a wide array of different sized storage units to rent in both London and Birmingham, so we meet your business or personal storage needs no matter how big or small. We offer both long and short-term storage solutions.

To enhance your experience with us, we offer you a complimentary removal service directly into your new storage rooms. We sell all the packaging supplies you could need to prepare your items for a move. If you don’t want to buy packing boxes, we have a selection of plastic crates for hire. We also offer insurance policies to protect your valuables. We aim to offer you a full, all inclusive service to make your moving and storage process as seamless and convenient as possible.

If youve got any questions, or would like to know more about what we can offer you or your business, don’t hesitate to get in touch. We look forward to hearing from you!

Our charity involvement

We are committed to helping charities, donating our time and our product to a number of charitable causes; we do this with donations, fundraising and by providing free storage. In addition, we make a £5 donation for every review that we receive on Trustpilot about our service.

This year, it is our pleasure to be supporting local charities within the communities of where our stores are located. You can find out more about charities we support here.
