Rental Crates FAQ
How much do Rental Crates cost?
Crates are 25p per crate per week but if you prepay your first 12, 26 or 52 weeks of storage the crates are free for that period.
The total number of free crates permitted is one third the square feet of your storage unit so a 60 sq ft storage unit will allow you to use 20 free crates.
You can take extra crates at 25p per crate per week.
Can I get crates before I store?
You may want to start packing before you start using your storage unit. Collect your crates up to a month before you start storing.
You must pay for your first period of storage when collecting your crates but the paid time on your storage unit only starts when you are ready to use it.
Do I need to reserve my crates?
We usually have a good stock available in store but we recommend letting us know when you would like to collect some crates.
It’s easy to add extra crates or return unused ones so don’t worry about working out the exact quantity you need. We refund unused time you have paid for when you return crates.
We can help work out what will be best for you.
Is there a minimum hire period?
No – just use the crates for as little or as long as you like. When you no longer need them simply return them to reception.
You must sign a form to confirm the crates have been returned.
All charges are worked out pro rata when you take extra crates or return unused ones.
What about when I stop storing?
If you no longer need your storage room you can continue using your crates at 25p per crate per week for as long as you like after moving out of storage.
Keep your crates for just the time to empty them or use them as a cost effective way to continue storing things at home or at work.
Any free use of the crates stops when you stop using your storage unit.
