Storage Advice

Security for Storage

At Stock N Lock we take the security of your items very seriously. To ensure you have complete peace of mind that your worldly possessions’ are safe and secure our purpose built facility was designed with optimum security at the forefront of our thinking.

All our storage rooms are individually alarmed and are accessible with a PTI access code that is unique to you and your storage room, on top of this we have several barriers including an electric gate and roller shutter doors which can only be opened with your unique PTI access code. You are the sole key holder for your storage room and our centre is covered via a digital CCTV system 24 hours a day. The building is covered with fire and smoke detectors and we work closely with the local authorities, emergency services and self storage association (SSA) UK to safeguard your possessions’ safety.


We strictly adhere to the guidelines of the Self Storage Association (SSA) UK and Her Majesties’ Revenue and Customs; all customers setting up a storage licence must provide two forms of identification and are photographed. We do not accept cash payments for the initial storage invoice to ensure payment is traceable. We also insist that every customer who stores has sufficient insurance to cover the contents of their storage room which ensures not only their goods are protected, but also the goods of those customers stored in a room nearby.

Staff are onsite 7 days a week and carry out daily patrols. Finally, we have a list of prohibited goods that are not allowed to be stored which include highly flammable, toxic, perishable, or illegal goods. Please click here for the full list of prohibited goods.
