What Are The Self-storage rules and regulations?

Owners of self-storage facilities must comply to the necessary criteria to provide access to customers and successfully run a self-storage site. The below considerations need to be taken into account:

Storage locations:

Customer Access:

Owners of self-storage sites:

Insurance For Self Storage Sites:

For self-storage contracts, insurance is essential for owner operators and for customers to reduce risk of damage from floods, fire, storms and most importantly theft. 

An owner of a self-storage site must present clear insurance paperwork to their customers as well as insisting that the customers buy insurance for the items they are wishing to store.

Offering insurance for your customers is an absolute necessity at your self storage site.

Planning permission:

In the UK, containerised storage units are classified as temporary structures and therefore theoretically you do not need to have planning permission as you can relocate them easily. 

However, whether or not you may require planning permission or not depends on location of the site and local planning restrictions. 

Therefore, no matter the situation, we would advise that you always check with your local council / planning officer.

Excellent customer service

“Excellent customer service. Dominic, Nicola and Val on the team were ultra helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The delivery driver Lee’s skill at deploying the container in the tightest of spaces with amazing precision has to be seen, really impressed with the service.”

The whole experience from initial…

“The whole experience from initial enquiry right through to delivery was flawless. Queries to the sales team were answered quickly and they went out of their way to arrange for pick up of old containers when the new ones were delivered. The new containers are superb….one very happy customer. :)”
– David Sanders

Great Customer Service & Products

“We purchased a reefer through Boxtor and Dominic was our main point of contact since the beginning. He provided us with a competitive quote and made sure that the reefer was delivered as soon as possible. The whole process was seamless and we are very happy with the overall experience. We are looking forward to doing business with Boxtor again in the near future”
