The Storenextdoor Guide to Storage and Self Storage in the Liverpool area
Home to the RMS Titanic, at one time the world’s most modern dock system and the first city in the UK to taste the banana, Liverpool has a rich history as one of Britain's busiest ports. The city's maritime glory days are behind it, however; fewer Liverpudlians work on the Merseyside docks than ever before, following the introduction of container shipping in the second half of the twentieth century. Ironically, the opportunities for self-storage in the city have boomed as a result, with many firms offering spaces once used for shipping to the city's 500,000-strong population.
A number of the most adaptable units for hire are located on the city docks as a result.Youstore,United Storage,Castree Brothers Ltd,United Storage,Storage King andSmart Storage are based near Bootle and the Kingsway and suitable for holding furniture, artwork, documents and student essentials. All are independently-owned and highly-recommended.
The majority of national self-store brands are represented further into the city centre.Big Padlock offer units from 10 sq ft. to 250 sq ft. near University Hospital Aintree;Big Yellow have two facilities close to Rathbone Hospital and Allerton Cemetary, while StoreFirst is near the airport. Armadillo have a facility in the North of the city andSafestore one near Queens Wharf. Finally,Britannia Lanes own a large site in Prescot, on the outskirts of town and accessible from the A580.
Liverpool's once-thriving shipping trade has since been replaced by a service industry which now employs 60% of the region's working population. As a result, specialist document and data storage facilities operate throughout the city to support office-based businesses.DSE in Seaforth,Plutus UK andBechers Business Centre in Bootle all offer quick-retrieval services, as doSecure Storage Services in Wirral andAu Logistic in Birkenhead.

If you’d rather store with someone who lives in your local area we offer the option to search for ‘neighbourhood storage’. This may be a garage, spare room, outbuilding or attic that the owner is not currently using and has decided to let out for storage purposes.
