Drive In Storage opened June 2018 with 48, 20ft units and was at full occupancy within 3 months.
We have business users who are on-site every day getting their equipment for the day, we have people who just use our facility for short term use and we have people who just use our site as an extension of their own home.
At the moment we are full at the Reeds Lane site and now have a waiting list for people who would like to be with us.
Due to popular demand, we have now developed our Cross Lane site with a further 70 storage units which start from as little as £21 a week inc VAT and have been open there since February 2020, however, we are now full at that site and have a waiting list there too.
If you would like to go on the waiting list for either site, contact us through the website or call on 0151 631 4900.
Both sites are well laid out with room for 2-way traffic and the convenience of parking right up to your own unit for ease of loading and unloading. There is a large turning circle for better traffic flow on the site. All of our units on both sites are on tarmacked ground so there would be no issues with mud etc. The whole site is very clean and a safe place to use.
We also have 24-hour access to our sites; customers can enter using a fob system which is connected to the latest Net 2 security software. After logging who is coming on-site, the fully automated sliding gate will open. If you come on to the site when it is dark, floodlights will automatically come on. There also is a very high standard of CCTV which is constantly recording 24 hours a day, 17 cameras covering the Reeds Lane Site and 15 covering the Cross Lane site.
There are also nightly patrols of our site from a local security firm that is on hand out of the normal business times.
Units are available for 3/6/12 months. Direct Debit payments are available for the 6 and 12 month options.

Run out of space at home
People are reluctant to cast aside belongings they no longer use, especially if they are still in good condition. They want to hang onto things ‘just in case’ or often because they’re planning on passing them on at some point in time. It could be an old Chesterfield, a bike, a bed, Hi-fi equipment or a bookcase. Getting on the housing ladder is very expensive and many are storing furniture etc, in preparation for when children make that jump and will need all the help they can get.
Increasingly people are having to move out of their old home before moving into their new one to avoid losing a sale. If that’s the case and you have nowhere to store your belongings, a self storage unit is an ideal answer. Also, if you are downsizing, but don’t want to throw away or sell those bits and pieces quite yet, a self storage unit will help while you make your mind up about what stays and what goes.
If the builders are due, to erect a new conservatory or extension, and you are worried about them walking through the house and damaging your sofas or wooden furniture, a self storage unit would be ideal to house your valuables whilst the work is ongoing.
Baby on the way
If you have a new addition on the way and need to completely clear the spare bedroom, you don’t have to clear the decks and put everything on eBay. Yes, replace the spare bed with a cot, but put the bed in a self storage unit, along with any furniture that you don’t need. You’re probably going to need it again in a while. You can always sell it if you change your mind.
Are you a garden worker, builder or painter and decorator? Are you worried about leaving your tools in the van overnight? If you rent a small self storage unit, you can drop off your tools at the end of the day and pick them up the next morning. They will be stored safely in damp free surroundings – under lock and key.
Garden furniture and machines
Summer gives way to autumn and the grass has been cut for the last time. It’s time to put away all the garden furniture and equipment, but where? The space in the shed or garage seems a lot smaller than when you took it all out and the chances are you’ve bought an extra lounger or decided to buy a bigger table. You’re not going to use any of the items for months so putting it all into a self storage unit leaves you with a bit of space in the garage and also helps protect your garden furniture.
Many students choose to spend a year traveling before they enter the big, wide world of work! However, many find that they have nowhere to store their belongings between the end of university and the time that renting a house comes around on their return. In all likelihood, there’s no room back at mum and dads for all the extra things they’ve acquired during their 3 or 4 years at Uni. A small self storage unit is ideal for this.
Have you been offered the chance to work away, maybe abroad for 12 months? If so, and you own a property, you are likely to rent out your property for the duration of your stay away. Many homeowners in this position don’t want to leave all the belongings in the house. A self storage unit will provide you with peace of mind whilst you are away.
Once children have left for university, you might want to alter the lay-out of your home. You could turn one of the bedrooms into a study or your child’s study into a television room. Whatever your choice, there are sure to be items of furniture that you don’t need but are reluctant to sell. After all, you never know when the children might return!
University students in the summertime
Students will collect various items during their stay at university. A television, CD player, a sofa, their own bed to name but a few. If it’s not your last year, when the summer term is over, it’s unlikely that you will want to take everything back to your parents’ home only to bring it all back in September. If that’s the case and you are unsure who might be hanging around in your rented accommodation over the summer period, a self storage unit local to your university accommodation is an ideal solution. A small price to pay for a summer of peace and confidence.
We will not tie you down to a long contract we are quite flexible over the size of the unit should you need to change it. It makes the ideal solution to both short and long term storage problems and is why more people are using them.
