Store First Self Storage Pioneers ‘Simple Pricing’

East Lancashire company Store First has announced plans to “change the face of the self-storage industry” by pioneering a new ‘simple pricing’ approach to help customers understand how much they’ll really pay.

The self-storage chain, which started with centres in Burnley and Blackburn and now operates outlets across the North West, Yorkshire and Merseyside and soon to open new stores in Scotland and the Midlands, has launched a new website which gives customers a quick and simple way to search for a self-storage price.

By simply selecting a location, size of unit and length of time self-storage is required, customers are provided with an instant price on the website’s sliding pricing tool – and Store First promises no “nasty hidden extras” are in-store further down the line.

Store First managing director John Turner said: “This is a genuine first in the self-storage industry. In countries like the USA, self-storage is commonplace but here in the UK there’s still confusion and mystery about how self-storage works, how much it costs and what to use it for. We’re here to change the face of self-storage by being completely upfront about the price you’ll pay from the outset.”

“For too long the UK self storage industry has used confusing pricing and offers with unclear add-ons to hide the true cost of self storage, making it hard for customers to compare like with like. We aim to change that through our new website which offers plain simple pricing and tells you clearly and easily what the full cost will be to you. What you see really is what you get – the price you see on the easy-to-use website pricing tool is the price you pay. That includes £2,000 contents cover and even a free, high security padlock – with absolutely no hidden charges or extra things to pay on top. We have every confidence that our stores offer the best facilities at the cheapest prices so why not be honest about it, we simply have nothing to hide!”

Whether you are moving house, looking to create some space or even looking for somewhere to run your business from Store First offers flexible leases with short notice periods. Each site is new and secure with market leading facilities including 24/7 access, free wifi, canteen, gym, free use of boardrooms and even a free pick up service to save you the cost of hiring a van.
