Need business storage without lease commitment? Speak to CityStore.

If you in business and need a flexible self storage solution in Camden Town, speak to our staff at CityStore.

Taking a self-storage unit on a monthly basis rather than signing a lease for 12 months+ makes good business sense. In a difficult economic climate where sales can be unpredictable, using self storage enables you to have the freedom to take more space during busy periods and to take less space during less busy periods – thus keeping control of costs.

Our self storage facilities in Camden and in Dunstable offer free access 7 days a week and, in the case of our Dunstable store, we can offer 24hr access so you can come and go as you please any time day or night.

For more details about our services, contact one of staff on 0207 428 9988 (Camden) or 01582 414 271 (Dunstable).

Choose the right padlock for your self-storage room

CityStore 70mm Disc Lock

The essence of self-storage is that you have your own individual storage room secured with your own padlock for which you hold the only key. When storing, how do you decide what type of padlock to have.

In CityStore, the premises are highly secure and the only people allowed access to the storage area are current customers. In addition, access to the storage area is only possible by entering a unique pin-code which de-activates the alarm on their specific unit. The final security feature, this time provided by the customer, is a padlock.

CityStore does not push customers to buy their padlocks, even though we do sell them onsite if required. If you have a padlock at home, bring it down when you move in – no problem. If you forget you padlock on the day you move in or do not have one to bring down, we sell three different types in store:

  1. Standard Lock – priced at £8.95, this is good, strong lock,
  2. Combination Lock - priced at £10.95, this lock is perfect for people who are good with numbers but not with keys
  3. Disc Lock – priced at £12.95- our strongest lock

For more information on the range of merchandise that CityStore sells in-store, call either CityStore Self Storage in Camden on 0207 428 9988 or CityStore Self Storage Dunstable on 01582 477 700.

Self Storage Insurance – how much cover do I need?

Self Storage Insurance

When using self-storage, your goods must be insured to the full replacement value. If your items are good enough to store, they are good enough to ensure.

Storage companies all quote insurance in different ways but the real question is ‘How much are your goods really worth?’ Whilst it is important to insure for the value of the goods, be careful not to pay for insurance that you do not need.

Some businesses state that the rental price is inclusive of £5000 of insurance. This sounds great but you will be paying a premium for this somewhere in the price. You, the customer, are the only person who can state what your goods are worth.

At CityStore Self Storage in Camden Town and Dunstable, we aim to be completely transparent with all our charges so you fully understand what you are paying for. We will ask you how much your goods are worth and will quote you a fixed monthly rate for the amount that you state. We will not push you to take more insurance than you require. CityStore charges £3.50 per £1k of cover per calendar month which is one of the cheapest in the market.

Security is paramount at CityStore

PTI Keypad

When choosing a self storage centre in which to store your belongings, one of the key things to consider is the level of security.

Self storage centres throughout the U.K offer varying levels of security and CityStore aims to provide some of the most advanced storage security systems on the market. The five key points to consider are:

  1. Pin code access - all CityStore storage sites have pin code access to ensure that only customers who currently store have access to the secure storage area. Each code is unique and is linked to the room so  access is tightly controlled.
  2. Individual Room Alarms – within CityStore, each storage room has its own individual alarm that triggers if the unique pincde has not been entered on arrival
  3. 24hr CCTV- our sites are montiored 24/7 in case of emergency
  4. Strong Padlocks – CityStore sells great value, strong padlocks for maximum security
  5. Steel partitioned rooms – all rooms are purpose built and are individual in that your goods are not in ’shared’ space. You are the only person that can access your goods.

Take time to understand the security features of your storage centre to ensure peace of mind. If you require self storage in Camden Town or Dunstable, call us on 0207 428 9988.
