Great experience 5*
Fantastic help from all the staff, especially Sufyan. A really efficient process obtaining the storage space unit which is clean and easily accessed.
Sufyan took the time to show me different units. Very easy to navigate around the storage facility and lots of trolleys etc. available to help transport items.
I highly recommend Shurgard Kennington.

Great experience overall at Shurgard Kennington. I needed a short term storage unit for a couple of months before a move and this ticked all the boxes. Very helpful and professional customer service from Siham and her colleagues. Would definitely use Shurgard again if needed and can highly recommend this business.

So the people are very friendly and professional I would definitely recommend storing items there. However, if I was to state anything negative, it would be that I think you can get lost quite easily in the storage units as there are no directions on the walls. Not even directions for the fire exit (not that I noticed). No directions as to what number storage unit is situated within the building. Other then that it's great.

Great Customer Service at Shurgard - Kennington!
Popped in to get a price list, instead was taken to see the unit by staff member Rachel, she was very informative and really found out what our needs were, and how much stuff we had to store.
Was going to try the competition, but we had such a pleasant experience we will be storing our stuff here.

the manager and the staff replied every details fully clearly((except they charge £15 for first month admin. fee but its clear on their website and they would not be sure how much it would be till the due-date if you want to transfer to another size and be required for a 2 weeks notice, as they change the price every day plus you can not enjoy the better price shown on their website once you move in!!!!), and very reasonable understanding on your benefit. They do keep the promotion processed smoothly and fast. £1 is incredible attractive.. Its rare , normally should the big capital global international companies have the ability and prospect , and very confident with the business, offer such a promotion. Deep impression with Shurgard.

The staff are very helpful. The lift however was quite small so it would have been useful to have known that before arriving at the premises. It was a bit difficult to find as the building was hidden behind some trees. The store opening times are very good though and overall a great experience. Highly recommended.

Good for Special Offers. I took advantage of a £1 for a month and 50% off for another month so this made things very good value overall. The facility feels older and smaller than some others out there but staff are friendly and willing to help and it is decently located

Their Google Plus page shows a street view of their store which is most useful. Also plenty of packaging materials inside.

The lift is pretty small for this storage so you have to take multiple trips.

Good storage, well organised even if in some cases the trolleys don't fit the elevator

The positives - Friendly staff, competitively priced, well maintained.
The negatives - Small lift! It was a challenge getting a double mattress in it. The corridors are also quite narrow. If you have bulky items to store you must be on the ground floor. Parking is very limited. 3 vehicles and the car park is full, probably with one car being blocked in.

Access to the unit on the 1st floor very complicated almost unsafe to reach - a labirynt with ‘hills’ and turns; water on the floor; lift way too small only a small trolley fits, incredibly difficult to get belongings to the unit, very small driveway - parking. Female stuff not friendly, answering my questions with attitudes, access to my unit denied for a day due to unknown reasons. Extra charge for a lock while the standard ordinary padlock not accepted. Price ok.

I made a reservation via the website. The T&C's clearly state that the promotions Shurgard run are valid for 30 days from the reservation date. The lady from the Kennington branch called me back and refused to honour this, and was extremely rude and patronising on the phone. Terrible customer service at a time when everyone is struggling, avoid. This may explain why they were investigated by the Advertising Standards Authority (easily searchable) for their dodgy promotion tactics.

Edit: After posting this review, I received 3 missed calls and an email from the Shurgard Kennington manager. They apologised for the confusion and offered to honour the promotion, however the disgusting way in which I was spoken to by their employee means they will not receive my custom. I have consequently received a better quote from another storage company and will be going with them (the difference in customer service levels between Shurgard and the other company is astounding).

Scumbags. We paid late a few times and because of this they demanded we collect our items within a week. We were away at a family funeral but changed all our plans as they were so persistent. When we arrived they said we were too late to collect our belongings! They hadn't specified everything had to be taken the same day and so we have to wait until next week. As a result they've added an extra months rent! They've disrupted our lives at a terrible time and we feel seriously let down. Absolutely awful experience and massively over priced.

Terrible service. The manager is racist. Makes up policies as he goes along. When I asked for the complaints procedure he informed if I want the complaints procedure he has the right to refuse me service. What an absolute joke. Never will I go near this place again. A highly unprofessional organisation. Maybe cheap but when you pay peanuts you get monkeys. Go elsewhere. In addition to this the main doors have been broken for about three months and it is open for all to wonder in as you please. Your unit is not even safe. All in all probably one of the worst service I have ever experienced somewhere

I recently used the Kennington branch to store furniture for a move for a month which started on 22/4 and ended 27/5. My first contact with the staff was great, very helpful when I moved my furniture in on 22/4. I had forgotten to give the branch 15 days notice of moving out so I duly paid the £78 charge as it was my error in not notifying them. On 27th May, I hired a van to move all my belongings out which I did in two trips. After emptying my unit I handed in the lock and key and specifically asked staff if they would like to check the unit. They declined and I left the unit clean and empty as agreed. The next day I was at a wedding and received a unexpected phone call from a staff member from their mobile phone , being accused of leaving furniture I didn't want in the unit. The staff member was aggressive and rude on the phone. I asked him to check CCTV and said there wasn't any near my unit. I was very shocked and surprised to be accused of this when there was no proof of me leaving any furniture in the unit I had vacated that day. I asked him to check the CCTV for other cameras. The accusations continued and I politely told him I had not left any furniture behind I did not want. He abruptly hung up on me.

For my first experience using Shurgard I am struggling to think of words to use to say how angry I am with the poor customer service. Not only did I receive an aggressive unwanted phone call on bank holiday Sunday from an unknown number which disrupted the wedding I was attending, I was duly accused of something I had not done by one of your staff members. I will be going out of my way to spread the word to family and friends of this unacceptable experience. I will not be using Shurgard again after this sour experience.

Set in an old warehouse, the decaying fabric of the building really puts Shurgard at a disadvantage vs its newer, purpose-built competitors. Building layout is confusing, corridors are long and narrow, and the room we were shown had pigeons roosting in the roof above - with droppings all down the window.

Staff are friendly and do their best given the situation - but even though this place was the cheapest in the area, we felt as though we'd rather pay more money and go elsewhere.
