About Us

Standby Self Storage Ltd was first founded in August 2008.  Before we opened our first site in Croydon, we looked around many different facilities, some local, some in other parts of the country and even one the other side of the world!   During our research of the self storage market, we realised that many of these facilities missed out on customers as they didn’t have ‘drive up access’ enabling easy loading/unloading of  their goods, ‘24 hour access’ allowing customers to store/collect their goods when it suited them and offering ‘clean dry and secure units’ giving them the most essential thing of all, peace of mind!  With all these things in mind we wanted to provide the best service we could to all our current & future customers.

The name Standby was chosen because our storage is always ready when you are!

The foundations of Standby Self Storage are based on this rule, giving customers secure 24-hour access to their storage unit, 7 days a week and also allowing customers to rent units any time of day.
