Will my lock box suffer from damp?

No. Our lock boxes are very similar to the shipping containers which sit on the open deck of ships. This means they are completely waterproof. To ensure no damp gets into your unit, we advise customers not to store damp or wet items and make sure any fridges or freezers are fully drained and dried before storing.

Do I have to sign a lease?

No, we try to keep things simple. All we do is ask for you to abide by the terms of our straightforward storage licence.

Do you do removals?

We don’t do removals ourselves. Many of our customers choose to rent a van and move themselves. If you do need a hand many customers choose Moulton Movers who offer a local man with a van service.
