One of the most popular questions we get asked at Metro Storage is how often customers can access their stuff.

Everyone has different demands; whilst some people like to check on their things regularly, others leave their stuff locked up at our secure sites for months with only the occasional visit.

But we understand circumstances change and there can be a need to move quickly to access
belongings, so it’s good to know where you stand.

How often can I access my self-storage room?

If you’re using a reputable self-storage operator, the answer to this should be ‘as often as you like, seven days a week!’. That is certainly the case at several of our Metro Storage sites.

Not everyone does, so look for operators who offer a flexible service if you think you’ll need frequent access, and it’s worth asking how often and how easily you can get to your things.

Most self-storage stores are open seven days a week, but not all of them, and not all are 24/7, so it’s important to double-check if the unit you’re eyeing up has the opening hours you need to work around your own life. Here are some more things you should be aware of when picking a self-storage company.

Metro Storage has multiple sites that are 24/7, and we’d be happy to talk to you about options if you think this is the right service for you.
