    Container storage in Wandsworth

    When comparing quotes in Wandsworth, you'll have the option of choosing between self-storage or container storage. Self-storage units are located within secure buildings, whilst container storage has large, metal containers that are outdoors. Container storage is more suitable for those moving big or heavy items such as vehicles, machinery or large furniture.

    Please know that despite being outdoors, the containers are completely safe and can only be accessed by staff members and clients. There is also active CCTV and modern fire and theft alarms. Some types of container storage such as pod storage are also portable. This is especially convenient should you be looking to store vehicles as they can be driven straight into the container.

    The cost of container storage will vary depending on your location, but mostly the size of the container. If you want to visit the compound, you may be expected to book an appointment in advance.
