Convenient container storage in Liverpool
How does it work?
Our storage solution 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 or 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 in Liverpool, 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 container storage in Liverpool, a few things will be required, including:
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.
An emergency contact number
In case of emergencies, we will need to have either a home or mobile number on our records.
Adequate insurance cover
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.

Tips for choosing and packing your self-storage container
To ensure you choose a suitable unit for your requirements – and make the most of your shipping container storage – there a few steps that we typically recommend. Investing a little time and effort to assess your options and pack the unit properly can often make a huge difference, optimising the storage capacity of the unit itself, and potentially even saving you money.
1. Create an inventory
Before getting in touch, make a list of everything you wish to keep in the unit.
This can be useful for several reasons. Firstly, it can make it much easier for you to select the right size for your needs. It’ll also help you to organise the unit when loading it up. The list doesn’t need to be super detailed; a general overview will do the job. And it’s often worth drawing a basic map to demonstrate where certain things will be kept.
Simply print out a copy of the inventory, pop it inside the unit in a waterproof folder, and you’ll know exactly what you have and where it is.
2. Consider sizing up
Nobody wants to pay for more space than they actually need. But when it comes to selecting a self-storage container in Liverpool, we always recommend going a size up.
Ideally, you should have enough space to store your goods and possessions comfortably, whilst still having room to manoeuvre and move around the unit. If possible, try to leave a clear path from the front to the back. This will ensure no items are completely out of reach and goes a long way towards minimising damage – and making your life a little bit easier!
Here at Gap, all of our storage units are hired on a month-by-month basis. You’re not tied into a long-term deal with a particular size. So if you think you could benefit from a little extra space or your needs change, it’s easy to increase or decrease the size accordingly.
3. Organise your items
Taking the time to organise your storage – separating it into categories and boxing it correctly – can be hugely beneficial. Not only will it help to keep items safe and secure, they’ll also be much easier to find when you return to the unit in a month or two.
Start by grouping similar items together. Try to use uniform cardboard boxes wherever possible and, for stability, always put heavier items at the bottom and lighter things on top. It’s also a good idea to label boxes as you pack, perhaps in terms of their contents or the room in which they belong.
4. Be strategic
When it comes to loading your storage unit, a little forethought can save a lot of future headaches. For example, keep your frequently used items close to the door – allowing quick and easy access – and put those you can live without towards the back.
It also helps to think vertically. Take full advantage of the unit’s height – storing large items on their side wherever possible – and stack heavy boxes close to the ground and against the walls. Be sure to make use of all the available space and think about installing racks and shelves for awkward items.

How much does self-storage in Liverpool cost?
This will depend on the size of the container, how many units you require, and for how long.
But rest assured, our rates for container storage in Liverpool are incredibly competitive – starting from as little as £12 per week! A deposit isn’t required.

The monthly payments will be set at an agreed price (with utilities and maintenance included), and we provide a complimentary padlock and collection service for all customers.
What’s more, there’s no need to sign a long-term contract. Simply pay month-by-month – for however long you require the storage space – and give us two weeks’ notice before you leave.

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.

What can I store in my shipping container storage?
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 self-storage container 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 storage units 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 units 24/7 and we have an extensive intruder alarm system operating 24 hours a day.
When you first sign up for self-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.
