Gap Container Storage Units in Liverpool
How does it work?
Our storage solution in Liverpool features hundreds of individual lockable containers, all of which:
- are available to hire on a short-term or long-term basis
- are manufactured from the highest-quality steel
- are clean, waterproof, and kept in optimum condition
- can be directly accessed via a vehicle (for easy loading/unloading)
Each unit can be used for storing commercial stock, business items, and household/domestic content. We have a variety of types and sizes available, including 10ft, 20ft and 40ft containers, offering approximately 560 – 2400 cu. ft. of self-storage space depending on your specific needs. It’s also possible to request a container with racking and shelving, for a small additional cost.
To reserve a self-storage container, simply give us a call and let us know which size you need. No deposit is required and, subject to availability, we should be able to offer a unit on the same day.
You can bring your goods or possessions to the storage centre yourself. Or if you prefer, we’re happy to collect your goods on a day/time that works for you – completely free of charge. Either way, you’ll be the sole key holder for your storage unit. Our storage centre is open 24/7, so you’re free to access your container whenever you like, and payments are taken on a month-by-month basis.
Requirements for container storage in Liverpool
To access our self-storage containers in Liverpool, a few things will be required:
Each time you visit the site, you will need to bring two forms of ID with you:
- Photographic ID (such as a passport, driving licence, or valid student ID)
- Proof of residence in the form of a bank statement or utility bill
This is to ensure the safety and security of the facility itself and our client’s storage.
Emergency contact number
In case of emergencies, we will need to have either a home or mobile number on our records.
Our storage units in Liverpool are supplied on a DIY (do-it-yourself) basis. As such, it’s your responsibility to insure goods for their full value, for the duration of their stay. Sometimes, this type of cover will be provided in one of your existing policies (e.g. household insurance). But before you leave any items on our site, it’s important to double-check the terms and conditions carefully.
As the sole key holder for your self-storage container in Liverpool, it’s your job to keep it locked at all times. A heavy-duty, durable padlock will be provided for free once you have started your rental and signed our agreement contract. But if you prefer, you can also choose to use one of your own.
5 Reasons to Invest in a Shipping Container Shed
Constructed from corten steel, shipping containers are inherently strong and robust.
After all, their main purpose is for transportation, and they’re specifically designed to protect their contents and carry them safely across the world. Fitted with a heavy-duty plywood floor, they can hold up to approximately 30,000kg of cargo with ease – which is more than enough for your typical household and garden storage – and items inside will be protected against any damage.
Shipping container sheds come in a wide range of sizes. In theory, if you have enough space in your garden, it’s possible to install a 40ft structure – which is more than four times the size of the average wooden variety. From classic garden equipment and furniture to pedal bikes, motorcycles and cars. Whatever you need to store, there’s a shipping container to meet your requirements.
On average, a shipping container has a life expectancy of 25 years or more. They’re incredibly tough and durable. And unlike a traditional wooden shed, they’re fully weather-resistant – 100% wind- and water-tight. As such, they won’t rot or warp over time (despite being continuously exposed to the elements) and, whatever the weather, the contents of the container will remain protected.
What’s more, shipping container storage sheds are typically treated to prevent corrosion. Any rust that appears on their surface is completely superficial and will not affect its strength or integrity.
Shipping containers are significantly more secure than a wooden shed. Aside from their overall strength, most come fitted with sturdy cargo doors, with an in-built locking mechanism. To create a heightened level of security, it’s also possible to add heavy-duty shipping container padlocks and lockboxes. All together, these features make ‘breaking and entering’ a highly difficult task.
As they’re deemed a temporary structure, planning permission is very rarely needed for a shipping container shed and installation is quick and easy. Unlike a traditional wooden shed, they also require very little maintenance to ensure they remain safe and sturdy. You may wish to re-paint the container every few years, but this is purely to improve its aesthetics – rather than for any practical benefit.
A comprehensive range of storage containers
We have a diverse range of storage containers for sale and hire, including:
New storage containers – just as the name suggests, these are brand new, manufactured to the highest standard, and have an immaculate appearance. They’re 100% wind- and watertight and offer a lifetime of secure storage.
Used storage containers – these are second-hand and sold on a ‘next from stack’ basis. Typically, they’ve been used for 10-15 years in the shipping industry. But they’re still very solid and provide many years of reliable storage.
End-of-life storage containers – having been used extensively for shipping, these are old structures that are no longer suitable for transportation. But as long as they’re maintained correctly, they can be used for many years for storage purposes – and are a fantastic, affordable option for those with a limited budget.
Refrigerated storage containers – most commonly used in the retail and supermarket industry. Our refrigerated containers offer food-grade storage space, ideal for keeping fresh produce in the optimum condition for sale.
Flat pack storage containers – We also stock storage containers that arrive as a flat pack and need to be assembled by hand. These are an ideal choice for small spaces or areas with limited access. Made from durable materials, they provide dry and secure storage, and multiple units can be linked together to create extra space.
All of our storage containers can be supplied in a range of standard sizes, including 6ft, 8ft, 10ft, 15ft, 20ft, and 40ft. Or, they can be fabricated to specific dimensions and modified to suit your needs and preferences. For example, they can be repainted in any colour from the RAL chart, fitted with a range of optional extras (e.g. lockboxes, padlocks), or converted bespoke to order. Just let us know what you require, and we’ll deliver.

Why choose us for self-storage in Liverpool?
Our storage units in Liverpool have three main advantages:
1. They’re hassle-free
The facility itself is in an ideal location in Liverpool, close to the M62 and M57. We currently have no waiting lists. Which means, we can offer an instant storage solution and you can come and go as you please – with unlimited 24-hour access, seven days a week. Each storage container can also be accessed directly via car or van, saving you both time and effort when loading and unloading.
2. They’re safe and secure
Our facility is well manned with 24-hour CCTV, giving you peace of mind that your possessions are secure at all times. A high-security padlock is provided and, if you wish, we can also supply a lockbox.
3. They’re cost-effective
All of our storage units in Liverpool are available for a competitive price. They’re an affordable option and, given their ideal location and security, they offer exceptional value for money.
What can I store in the units?
Just about anything you want.
Perhaps you’re moving home and need somewhere to store possessions temporarily? Maybe you’re a student looking for cheap holiday storage? Or a business wishing to file documents securely?
Of course, firearms, weapons, illicit substances (e.g. drugs and explosives) and anything else that is illegal or harmful to public health is prohibited. But, otherwise, you’re free to use the space as you wish and can store anything from commercial goods and business supplies to domestic and household items – such as furniture, appliances and personal possessions. You’re the only person who will have access to the storage container and the contents will be safe and secure at all times.
Which size will I need?
We currently offer three standard sizes: 10ft, 20ft, and 40ft. These provide approximately 560 cu. ft., 1200 cu. ft., and 2400 cu. ft. of self-storage space, respectively. So, whatever the dimensions or quantity of your items – whether you wish to store thousands of business documents or one or two pieces of bulky furniture – we’re bound to have a storage solution in Liverpool that meets your needs.
If you’re unsure which size is best for your requirements, you’re welcome to visit our site and view our self-storage containers in person. This will give you a better idea of their capacity and should (hopefully!) make your decision a little easier. Alternatively, you can get in touch with our team.
Ultimately, our goal is to meet your unique storage requirements, for an affordable monthly price. And we’re always on hand and happy to offer our expertise. Just give us a call on 0870 240 9405 and, once we know a bit more about the goods you wish to store, we can advise on the best container for you.
It’s also important to keep in mind, our container storage in Liverpool is very flexible. Payments are made on a month-by-month basis. Which means, if you reserve the wrong size or your needs change, it’s very easy to increase or decrease the size of your storage unit. You won’t be charged for switching containers and you’ll never have to pay for space you no longer require.
How long can I use the storage container for?
Our self-storage service in Liverpool is run on a month-by-month basis, and we don’t have a ‘maximum stay’. Therefore, if you wish, you can store your goods and possessions with us for a little as four weeks. Or you can keep the container for many months or years to suit your needs.
All we ask is that you give us two weeks’ notice if you do wish to vacate the storage unit. You’re free to empty the unit at any point during that time, but you will be charged for the full notice period.
Are the storage units secure?
Shipping containers are inherently one of the most secure forms of storage on the market. Made from Corten steel, they’re incredibly strong, durable and resistant to extreme weather conditions.
However, to give you peace of mind – and ensure you and your belongings are safe at all times – we like to go the extra mile. Reliable CCTV surveillance cameras are trained on our self-storage containers 24/7 and we have an extensive intruder alarm system operating 24 hours a day.
When you first sign up for storage in Liverpool, we also provide a heavy-duty padlock free of charge. And if you’d like to enhance this padlock, we can also supply a high-security lockbox.
