At Upminster Containers we have a large depot based in Upminster, Essex and offer competitive self-storage solutions for any purpose.
If you are looking for a self-storage company in Essex or London then look no further. We have been established for many years and have a large portfolio of small, medium and large companies we have worked with. Our depot has a large array of varied shipping containers, which make the perfect vessel for storing goods safely and securely.
All of our shipping containers are 8’ wide and 8.6’ in height. They come in four standard lengths – 10’, 15’ (on-top only), 20’ and 40’. We also have some storage containers available in alternative lengths (for example: 8’, 12’ and 30’ etc).
For long term hire periods our shipping containers can be adapted or modified to accommodate specific customer requirements and needs.
We provide both new and refurbished containers, all of which are wind and water tight and are stored on our secure premises in Upminster, Essex. The containers are painted dark green and are fitted with a lock box for added security. 10' Containers are repainted inside with a special anti-condensation coating, and the floors are varnished, ensuring a clean and dry environment for your goods.
Self-storage shipping containers at Upminster Containers can be stored in three different ways inside the depot.
For customers requiring regular access you can choose a ground level shipping container. For customers requiring occasional access you can have an ‘on-top’ container (2-high). For customers who do not require access during the hire period can hire a 3-high container.
Shipping containers which are stored on top and 3-high are lifted down to ground level for 7 days to load. The shipping containers are then re-stacked when the loading is complete. For customers who have their containers stored ‘on-top’ (2-high), we provide a mobile staircase, which can be pre-booked.
Some of the shipping containers already have power in them, whilst some have racking pre-installed. This can be particularly useful for commercial clients wishing to store archive files etc.
At Upminster Containers we take the security of your self-storage solution very seriously. We provide padlock and keys for your shipping container for just a small returnable deposit.
Although we offer outstanding self-storage solutions for clients, we cannot provide removal or loading services, however we can definitely recommend quality removal companies on request.
At Upminster Containers we fully understand that different businesses operate in different hours. This is why we have tailored an access program allowing for you to choose between two-types of access, allowing you the most flexible self-storage solution possible.
Additionally to this our depot is designed to allow customers to drive vehicles to within just a few feet of the containerised storage facility, thus affording excellent accessibility.
We offer two main types of access to your shipping container, depending on your level of access membership with us.

Level 2 Access - For a deposit of just £15 you can have gate control access from Monday to Saturday 6am until 8:45pm and also on a Sunday from 9am until 8:45pm.

The depot itself is completely covered with quality CCTV, allowing us to have ‘eyes everywhere’ at all times. Additionally we employ the services of a local security company who oversee the depot outside of normal working hours.
