Do I have to pay a deposit?

Yes. Before storing, all customers are required to pay a refundable deposit.
The amount is equal to either the first monthly or weekly storage period if less plus VAT.

The deposit is fully refundable provided there is no damage to the storage room after you have moved out and all storage rent has been paid.

This depends on what size storage room you require and the length of your stay.

All prices given are either for a weekly or monthly period plus VAT and is payable in advance.

Do I have to take out Masons Self Storage Insurance cover?

We highly recommend that you do, however, you also have an option to take out your own insurance but it is important that the policy covers goods that are being placed in self-storage. You will need to check the terms of your insurance as not all household insurances cover you whilst your belongings are in a self-storage facility.

We will also need proof of your cover if you are not using the Masons Self Storage insurance cover and it will have to state that it covers goods stored in a self storage facility, the name of the Storage Company that you are storing at and the full postal address of the premises.

Responsibility remains with you there after to keep your insurance documentation valid and up to date.

How much is Insurance and is it compulsory?

Insurance cover depends on full new replacement value of your goods as at today’s prices.

Our Insurance premiums are starting from £1.10 per £1,000 value per month inc IPT (Insurance Premium Tax) @ 9.5% of the premium. quick to setup and covers you for theft, fire or flood damage, it’s really as simple as that. We have a couple of different insurance bands available which we’d be more than happy to discuss further upon moving in! A summary of the insurance policy is also provided upon receiving a quote from us.

Minimum premium is £1.10 per month or part there of inc IPT (Insurance Premium Tax) at 9.5% of the minimum premium.

All customers must either take out our Insurance cover or provide proof of Insurance cover for their own goods, before they can store with us. If using your own Insurance Company you will need to instruct them to amend your policy to include the name and address of the self storage facility you are using.

For business customers who are neither of the above, you will be requested to provide a letter from the business confirming that you have authority to sign a licence agreement on behalf of the company.

What do I do when I want to move out?

You can move out of your storage room by giving 14 days notice in writing, but you must include an end date.

This ensures that you do not lose your security deposit, providing of course that all storage rent is paid up to date.
Any unused rent will be refunded back to you.

Yes. We operate a mobile self storage service for the self mover that cuts out you having to hire a van to bring your effects into our storage facilities.

We deliver a storage vault for you to fill within a trailer that is left at your property. When you have filled the vault you contact us and we come and collect and return to our stores.

The process is reversed when you want your goods returned or delivered to a new address.
