We are a family run business and committed to the health and safety of our customers and team. Changes have been made to keep everyone safe and we can confirm that we are taking the following steps and will continue to do so.
WE ARE OPEN - Emergency storage available
At Store & Secure Self Storage as a family run business we are committed to the health and safety of both our customers and our team and are pleased to confirm that we will remain open during this difficult time for essential and emergency access.
This is in line with the government’s guidelines, and the Self-Storage Association that self-storage facilities are to stay open because our facilities provide an essential service to lots of key supply chains that are necessary in providing a solution to contain the spread of COVID19. At Store & Secure Self Storage these include services for the Medial suppliers, food banks, distribution services and social services which are needed now more than ever, and we are proud to be able to help out.
We are also aware that many of our customers will continue to need help at this uncertain time, and therefore both existing customers and others who find themselves in need of essential flexible storage situations being created by the COVID19 pandemic.
Our stores are open and we are here to help, as always.
We have made lots of changes to our processes and procedures and as you can imagine we are operating differently at this time, for the safety of our team and our customers.
For existing customers, we advise you do not travel to our facilities unless it is an essential or emergency. If however you do need us then all contact points such as door handles, , trollies and card machines are regularly being cleaned on an hourly rota system. We have hand sanitiser which is to be used at all times on entry and exit of our buildings. Face coverings are required around our facility and in reception and business centre areas.
For new customers, you will still be able to move-in during office hours, but our staff will not be permitting access to the reception back office area and the process will be conducted adhering to social distancing rules. We will not be able to shake your hand in person, but will do everything to make your move in as easy as possible for you. Please call your local store if you have any questions – Bournemouth 01202 520220 – Basingstoke 01256 444455
Our stores are not high footfall premises, nonetheless, we are advising customers where possible to minimise their visits and observe social distancing and hand hygiene in line with government guidelines. These measures, if observed correctly, should ensure risk of the spread is minimal.
We understand that we are facing unsettling times so if any of our customers have any questions, no matter how small, then please do feel free to contact us – we’re still open and on hand to help.
Stay safe and together we will get through this;
Can I take out a new storage unit?
