The cost of self storage depends fully upon the size of the space required and the period of time its required for. We strongly believe in customers only paying for the space that they use and are happy to discuss with you in order to determine this. A price can then be quoted on the correct sized room.
The price you are quoted for storage is the only price you will pay except for a security deposit. The depsoit is usually equal to four weeks storage and is payable at the start of your storage and is refunded when you leave your storage unit.
We offer you unlimited access to your belongings so you can add or remove items from your storage unit as you require. Access is 24 hours, 7 days a week and free from access charges.
No, you could fill in your storage agreement with us today and move in immediately (subject to availability). However, to be guaranteed a room/unit of a specific size, it is advisable for you to book your unit in advance. Like many competitors, Ryans Self Storage do not charge a reservation fee.
No you do not. All we ask our customers to do is to simply sign a storage service agreement prior to moving into their room/unit. This agreement comprises of a simple "no fuss" contract and only takes a few minutes to complete.
Our minimum storage period is for 7 days however we may consider applications for less than 7 days rental, but that would be based on individual needs.
Ryans appreciate that peoples needs and requirments are forever changing and therefore don't ask for any notice to leave, something that many competitors insist on. A refund will be processed for your initial security deposit once the the room/unit has been vacated and the padlock and key returned.
We will discuss weekly or monthly invoicing (payable in advance) with each individual in order to accomodate their needs.
