What is self storage & how it works


Across all our Devon locations we work very closely with Armadillo Self Storage, it is like having a spare room away from home – or even your very own warehouse. You can pop in and out of your storage unit as often as you like during opening hours to add things or take stuff away. It’s a totally secure storage space and you can stay as long as you like or for as little as one week.


Find out how self storage works in 6 simple steps.


Step 1: Choose a storage facility

We have 3 locally in Torbay, Plymouth & Exeter but they have 0ver 99 UK storage facilities across the country so there’ll be one not too far from you.

They all offer safe and secure storage units in easily accessible areas via main roads.

Step 2: Choose your storage space

They don’t expect you to know exactly how much storage room you’ll need – after all who really knows what 50 sqft looks like – which is why they have space estimator tools so you can get a better idea of the storage unit size you’ll need. Getting the right size room also helps keep storage costs down.

Plus, if you’re still stuck, they’re on hand in store, or over the phone.

Step 3: Reserve your self storage unit

They’ll give you a quote online for storage units, over the phone or in the storage facility, then once you’re happy you can reserve your space.

Don’t worry if you need to change your storage room move in date – just let them know and they’ll make sure we’re ready when you are.

Step 4: Reserve your Removal Van!

This is a small job, get in touch with Simple Car & Van Rental – make sure you mention Armadillo for your 20% discount.

Step 5: Pack up

This bit’s on you. But they can still help make life easier – with their large range of storage packing boxes, which you can order straight to your door.

Step 6: Check in

When you arrive to move into your storage unit, the guys will need a few details for security and then you’re ready to move in. It just takes a few minutes, and if you want you can fill these out online beforehand to save time.

Step 7: Move into your storage space

They will take you around the store, show you where to find trolleys if you need help moving your things into your storage unit, and then it’s time to make your storage room your own. Enjoy peace of mind knowing your stuff is stored safely and securely in your alarmed room, that you can access 7 days a week.

Don’t forget to bring or buy your own padlock and arrange insurance for your possessions.
