Lok'nStore was one of the UK's first self-storage companies and is now the fastest-growing, with four new stores opening every year. Supplying self-storage to householders, renters and business users at over 43* locations, we have over 10,000 customers currently using our services. Lok'nStore CEO Andrew Jacobs opened the first store at Horsham in 1995 and since then has expanded the business across the south-east with locations from Salford to Ipswich, from Exeter to Broadstairs. Lok'nStore was listed on the Alternative Investment Market (AIM) in June 2000.

Our people

Lok'nStore loves to promote from within. We currently have fourteen centre managers promoted from customer service assistants, including one who is now managing a brand new storage centre. We run several sales training courses for our one hundred and fifty staff during the year, including NVQs.

Our customers

Our customers and staff are at the heart of everything we do at Lok'nStore. We currently have over 10,000 customers using our storage and over one hundred thousand happy ex-customers.

Our storage units

The majority of Lok'nStore Self Storage facilities have over thirty different sizes of storage units available to rent. A storage unit is usually 8 feet in height, with a floor space between 25 square feet and 800 square feet. Some of the larger storage units have double doors, and all have a fitting for a customer padlock. The customer locks the unit with their padlock and takes away the key. Only the customer has access to their own unit. Lok'nStore storage units are made of steel cladding and are private and secure.

Our security

Lok’nStore storage centres are fully staffed during our seven days a week opening hours, making our customers' belongings some of the most secure in the industry. All stores have 24 CCTV and smoke detectors. When closed, all stores are alarmed. Each customer storage unit has a padlock that secures it, and only the customer has a key to the padlock.

Our locations

Lok'nStore storage centres are hard to miss in their bright orange cladding. They are usually located in prominent positions near retail parks or busy roundabouts.

Our Environment

We currently use low-voltage LEDs in our signage. We have also installed solar panels on the new buildings and several older properties, enabling us to reduce our carbon footprint substantially.
