How to arrange self-storage in Ipswich

The easiest way to arrange self-storage is to visit your local Lok'nStore. In Ipswich, there is a fantastic store on Crane Boulevard. Recently I dropped by to have a look around the building for myself. The Lok'nStore facility in Crane Boulevard is tough to miss in honesty. The bright orange building sits impressively and holds its own against the Waitrose and John Lewis stores on the opposite side of the Boulevard. Upon arriving, I found there to be a free car park with plenty of spaces. Several customers were already parked at the loading bays, putting goods onto trolleys. Upon entering the reception area, I was greeted by a friendly member of staff who as it turned out, is the store manager. The reception area at Lok’nStore Ipswich is incredibly comfortable and welcoming. It felt more like I was about to book a holiday or buy a new car rather than looking at storage units! After signing in – which is for safety and security reasons – I was taken to explore the store.

Outside of the reception area is a pair of loading/unloading bays for customers. A number of low wheeled trolleys wait for customers to use. The double trolleys are easily big enough to get a double bed or a three-seat sofa onto them. From here, the trolleys can be wheeled straight to a customer’s storage unit. We then jumped into one of the lifts, and the Ipswich store manager then took up me to view a few of the over 30 different sizes of storage unit available to rent. First, we looked at a 25 square foot storage unit. This size of space works out at 5-foot x 5-foot x 8 foot high. I was surprised at how big this space looked, especially as its one of the smaller sizes of storage unit. The storage unit he showed me was metal walled, with a bright orange steel door. Once the door is closed, it has a hasp and staple for a padlock, making it not only private but secure. Next, he unlocked a 100 square foot storage unit for me to view. This one looked huge: 10-foot x 10-foot x 8 foot high! I believed the manager when he told me that the contents of a two-bedroom house could fit into one of these units. I asked what happens when someone lives in a two-bedroom house but has much more stuff – a hoarder, for instance. 'Not a problem' he said. 'We will find you a unit that fits your needs. All we need is a list of items, and we can solve your storage problems.

Back down on the ground, we went to take a look at one of the big storage units. Two double orange doors opened to reveal an 800 square foot monster of space. 'What would you use this size of space for and who might use it?' I asked, astonished at the size of the area.

'The other spaces we have in this range of sizes are rented by businesses for several different reasons. Pallet storage, equipment, stock and all types of merchandise.' Apparently, there is a varied range of business users using storage from chimney sweeps to printers, from electrical distributors to rubber duck importers. This particular storage space was next to a parked forklift truck, which the staff at the store used to load and unload customer goods. It turns out the forklift service is free to all customers, whether business or household. 'What about if I'm not at the store when my delivery arrives. For instance: if I’ve been delayed?’

'That's no problem at all,' replied the storage manager.

‘You could arrange in advance for us to unload or load for you or even via a phone call. We will put your goods into a temporary space or even your unit if you have previously arranged for us to have access.'

I was shown three sizes of self-storage unit, but there are over 30 different sizes at this facility. According to staff some are small enough that they are ideal for storing a fake Christmas tree and a couple of suitcases, up to the behemoth sized spaces being used by distributors. All these spaces are also lockable. The corridors around the centre were ample, clean and brightly lit, as were the lifts.

I’m told that customers range from households in between moves, people decluttering to sell their property by making it look more spacious, people just trying to make more space, students in need of summer storage, import/exporters, eBay sellers, distributors and all manner of business users. Would I use a self-storage facility in Ipswich? Indeed, if it was as modern as this one in Crane Boulevard. What would I store? I have no idea, but should I need storage, I know where to go.
