Which is the Best Storage Company?

easyStorage looks at whether it’s meeting its goal of becoming the best cheap storage company in the UK – or rather the best value for a quality service. (After all, you could almost certainly just grab a friend’s damp, draughty garage for less.)

It’s a question we see asked all the while: what’s the best storage company where I live?

We’ll say straight up that in SOME areas where we’re NOT the best – because we don’t have franchise partners in those places, largely in the North of England. In these areas we are looking for the best franchisees to help us extend our services there.(Find out more here: It's a great business even in these COVID times.)

But how are we doing in the other areas, the ones where we DO operate? We believe we're in the running for the best storage company.

So, here are five reasons that we believe you should put us on your (very) shortlist of storage companies:

1.      Our Reviews

We recently took a 'deep dive' look at our Trustpilot reviews, something we have tentatively planned to look at and share with blog readers periodically. We were both pleased and upset at our 4.7 rating, which is high but not a 5! But reading through, we know we were, for example, given 4/5 by people who hadn’t experienced the full service. We are genuinely confident they’ll come back with a 5/5 once they’ve experienced our property return service.

2. Our Service

Property return?

Yes, I got a little ahead of myself there – easyStorage isn’t just self-storage: it’s mobile storage.

We bring storage pods to you in our bespoke easyOrange easyVans. We help you to calculate how many easyPods (our storage units) you’ll need (you won’t be charged for any you don’t use) and help you load to make the best of the space. We can even help you pack.

So easyStorage customers save on the cost of van trental and the stresses of loading and unloading boxes.

And when you want your goods back, we bring them to your door and unload them for you.

In short, easyStorage not only provides secure storage for your goods, but makes life easy by taking on all the lifting, driving, packing and inventory on your behalf.

We are already in the TrustPilot Top Ten storage companies, but we're also the only 'mobile storage' company in the running!

3. Backed by Technology

Our website works for you 24/7, 365 days a year, to allow you to get a (free) quote for your storage. You can give it a try here:

(The quote doesn’t oblige you to book, so don't be wary of trying it. That's not how we work.)

We also use technology to help us organise our storage space. Whilst many companies sell you a space that’s more than you need, and it’s up to you to do the lugging around, we arrange our stored ‘easyPods’ in a way that allows us to make the most of our space and know where everything is.

Because we don’t have people in and out of the unit all of the time, we don’t need so many passageways and access points, making the very best of the space we have. And this, in turn, helps us to keep our prices low.

And we even give you a handy tool to calculate how many easyPods you’ll need to be able to store everything:

4.  Our people

We operate on a franchise model, which means that our people have a vested interest in our success – and yours.

They are all well aware of the value of good reviews and really keen for their customers to recommend us to their friends and colleagues.

We believe the franchise model has allowed us to develop a team of smart people who bring a lot to the business, be it marketing experience, storage experience, financial expertise or simply experience of running another business. This means that your belongings won't be stuck somewhere uncaring and reduces the chance of the unit going out of business and leaving you with an issue.

Our model is simple, and there are obviously people behind the scenes as well as our frontline teams.

We place a lot of faith in them and in our recruitment process – we like to believe we have a friendly, hardworking bunch who care about what happens to people’s belongings and the communities the work in. (If you’d be interested in joining us, you can see our latest vacancies here: Jobs.

5. Our prices

We believe our service speaks volumes, but we're not fooling ourselves: we know price matters to our customers. You could say we’re saving the best reason to use us until last:

easyStorage could save you up to 50% on the price of traditional storage.

It costs nothing to get a quote online, so you won’t get a hard sell.

But if you’d rather speak to one of our agents, who are regularly mentioned in customer reviews for their helpfulness (no hard sell there either), you can call them on 0333 241 3137.

Couldn’t be much easier!
