My units are part of my everyday working life

Handyman Jeff Smith and his workmates are in and out of their storage units several times a day picking up and dropping off tools. Here is what Jeff says about using a Shurgard storage unit:

“As a handyman, I need somewhere to store tools and materials. Self-storage is a very cost-effective way of having somewhere that’s yours and that’s dry and completely secure – it’s what you need if you’re in my line of work.

“There are so many companies in the storage industry but they’re not all as professional as Shurgard. In fact, very few companies of any sort today provide such great customer servicethe guys down the store are like family, if you know what I mean. They’re great and we all know each other.

Shurgard have also got very high-quality units. Some of the other storage companies have containers in car parks. They might be brightly painted, but that’s a bit of a gimmick. What you want is something that keeps your things safe and dry.

“I originally rented one unit at the Surbiton store, but as my business has expanded, I’ve taken an extra one. And as we get bigger, I may take on more. Who knows? I used to be a one-man-band but now there are four of us.

“Because we need to pick up stuff for our next job or drop things off from the last one, it’s very important that we can access our units every day at any time. We’re in and out of them as many as three times a day.

“Our units are down in the basement but there are lifts and trolleys so moving stuff in and out is very easy.”
