What Can I Store?

The whole idea of using a storage unit is for it to be as useful as possible which means we are pretty relaxed about what can be stored.

However, there are of course conditions because we have to ensure the safety of all our customers and staff at all times.

For guidance, this is Clause 17 of the Self-storage Association storage agreement that we use. It states the following …

17. Storer must not store (or allow any other person to store) any of the following in the Unit:

A Food or perishable goods unless securely packed so they are protected from and do not attract vermin;
B Any living creatures;
C Combustible or flammable substances such as gas, paint, petrol, oil, cleaning solvents or compressed gases;
D Firearms, explosives, weapons or ammunition; chemicals, radioactive materials, biological agents; toxic waste, asbestos or other potentially hazardous substances;
E Any item that emits fumes, or odours;
F Any illegal item or substances or goods illegally obtained such as illicit (counterfeit/smuggled) tobacco or alcohol and unlicensed or unsafe goods (such as toys, electrical goods, medicines, cosmetics, fireworks);
G And goods which are environmentally harmful or that are a risk to the property of any person;
H Items which are irreplaceable, such as currency, jewellery, furs, deeds, paintings, curios, works of art and items of personal sentimental value.
