What is self storage and how does it work?


Choose your storage unit size

We don’t expect you to know exactly how much storage room you’ll need – after all who really knows what 80 sqft looks like – which is why we have space estimator tools so you can get a better idea of the storage unit size you’ll need. Getting the right unit size also helps keep storage costs down. Plus, if you’re still stuck, we’re on hand in our office, or over the phone.


Reserve your self storage unit

We’ll give you a quote online for storage units. You can speak to us over the phone or by visiting our storage facility, then once you’re happy you can reserve your space. Don’t worry if you need to change your storage unit move in date – just let us know and we’ll make sure we’re ready when you are.


Move into your storage unit

We’ll take you around the facility, show you how everything works. If you need help moving your things into your storage unit, just ask one of our friendly staff, and then it’s time to make your storage unit your own. Enjoy peace of mind knowing your stuff is stored safely and securely, that you can access 7 days a week.


Need a van?

Once your unit is booked, call our office to book in your free van hire to help you move your possessions into our storage facility easily.

Getting started

What our customers are saying

“Stored my house contents in a dry, secure container for two months at Tarka. Particularly impressed by the gate entry system and the fact that a padlock and two keys are loaned as part of the hire. Rates are very reasonable and Ewan couldn’t have been more friendly and helpful.”

Diana Gilding

“If you want a storage facility where the owner values your custom and will do everything to ensure that your rental experience fits your requirements then Tarka is for you. The customer service and all round feeling that you are being looked after is excellent.”

Kathryn Hempell

“Tarka were so helpful when we had any problems. The container was so dry that even after 6 months the boxes was just like the day we put them in. The security system is so good we didn’t have to worry. Would definitely recommend this storage to anyone who needs to store anything.”
