Assisted Container Storage


Great value, with access and flexibilityGet a quote


Self-storage at reasonable rates is never as easy to come by as people anticipate, and yet more and more of us need it. We might be in between houses and needing a temporary place for our belongings. Or perhaps we’re decluttering and have items we don’t want under our roof but which we’re not ready to part with permanently. Then the reality of rates of as much as £30 a week (before VAT) for 35 square feet hits us. That’s why Johnsons of Shaftesbury’s assisted container storage, which gives you that amount of space for almost half the cost (£18 a week), is such a revelation.

Storage Which Is The Best Of Both Worlds

For years, people have assumed that self-storage wasn’t costly. But quite often those enticing-looking rates are a trick; you get them as part of an introductory deal and then, after a month or so goes by, you’re moved up to the full rate. Or you find what seems to be a great deal, but it turns out that your storage unit is barely as big as a postbox. Johnsons assisted container storage starts out at an incredibly affordable rate – and stays that way, no matter how long you keep it. 

There’s a secret to how we’re able to offer self-storage rates significantly better than the competition. Our 35-square-foot containers are designed to be stacked in such a way that every inch of our facility is used. And because that represents a saving for us, it becomes one for you, too. Our containers mean that we use 95 per cent of our warehouse space, thanks to innovative container design.

Your container(s) can be accessed four times per calendar month without any extra charge. If you need access beyond that, it’s charged at £45. Any time you need access, please give us 24 hours’ notice. If you need weekend access, please notify us during our business hours of Monday to Friday, 8am to 4pm.
