Storage FAQs

Yes. We can store any furniture that will not fit into your new property or items which you would like to hold on to for family and friends. We offer a variety of cost-effective storage solutions which can be included in the cost of your move.

There are two options – containerised storage and self-storage.

If you do not need access to your belongings while they’re in storage then we recommend containerised storage. We use large wooden boxes which measure 7’6×7’2×5′2 , hold 250 cu ft and can be moved using a forklift.

We also offer self-storage in the Bideford area. This is a good option if you need access to your possessions while they’re in storage.

Our storage facility is our own private site that is security alarmed and only accessed when a member of staff is there

All of our storage containers are indoors in wooden containers.
