Masons Self Storage

The Masons Story

For over 100 years the Mason family have been looking after homes and businesses, both locally and across the world. We started out our business life in 1905, when Sidney Mason founded ‘Masons of Barry’, a local removals company that is today known as Masons Moving Group. In 1991 the Mason family saw an opportunity to further help local homes and businesses by offering secure self storage to those needing a little bit of extra space… And so the Welsh Self Storage Centre was born later to become known as the ‘Space Centre’.

20 years later, we made a decision to go back to our roots, introducing the trusted industry name of Masons to the world of self storage and in 2015 not only are we are proud to unveil our refurbished, state of the art Self Storage facility but also a unique mobile self storage service and a packing supplies shop, all under the same roof and under the new name of Masons Self Storage. Over 20 years of providing safe, flexible storage space and we’re proud to continue our growth. That’s why we’re the best choice for your storage and packing supplies needs in South Wales.
