We have standard documentation which we try to make straight forward and as easy to understand as possible. Standard documents also minimise cost. We also ask to see your ID (passport or driving licence). Payment of a deposit and the first invoice must be made prior to moving in.

What size unit can I rent?

We offer 5’, 10’, 20’ and 40’ containers in Inverness or Fort George.

We aim to be as flexible as possible.  The minimum rental period is one month. You can store your items with us for as long as you want, there is no maximum rental period.

You can move in on the same day as you make your enquiry (during office opening hours) providing you have the relevant documentation needed to complete your Agreement. Payment of a deposit and the first invoice must be made prior to moving in.

When you no longer require your rental unit

The minimum rental period is 30 days, when you are ready to hand your rental unit back simply tell us when it’s clean and empty, return your keys and that’s it. There is no termination period where you end up paying for storage that you’re not using..

What is included in the price - are there any hidden extras?

Customers are strongly recommended to arrange insurance cover. The contents of each unit are not inspected by us and are expressly not covered by our insurance policy. Many customers extend their household/business insurances to cover stored items. This is likely to be the cheapest option but you will need to talk to your insurers beforehand.
