Where can I buy packaging material
David Lindsay Self Storage recommends that you pack your goods in strong double board cardboard boxes or plastic stackable boxes with lids. This makes stacking easier and avoids damage to your goods whilst also making the most of the space in the room. However, you do not need to have your goods in boxes. A dust cover is a good idea and soft furnishings should have a light polythene cover.

Do I have to pay a deposit?

How much is insurance?
This depends on the full new replacement value of your goods if you had to buy them again today.

If you choose to use our insurance, this will be added to your contract when you come into our site to sign your customer contract before you move into your storage room.
