All of our modern self-storage facilities boast a range of business storage units in various sizes (10sqft to 200sqft) to suit your operation.

Our flexible and affordable managed storage plans mean you’ll only ever pay for the agreed storage space you need and for however long you need it with our short-term and long-term business storage solutions. Unlike when leasing a physical store or business premises, we don’t charge our business customers for any overhead utility bills, and there are no sneaky or hidden business rates so you can focus on launching your e-commerce business and doing what you do best without worrying about the costs!
Our versatile self-storage units are ideal for a wide range of businesses, including eBay and Amazon sellers, online store retailers and Etsy sellers. Take a look at these 20 businesses that can operate from a storage unit and find your nearest SureStore location.

Secure Business Storage
As well as the support from our on-site SureStore teams, each of our facilities benefits from a state-of-the-art security system, including high-performance intruder alarms in each storage unit and 24/7 CCTV coverage throughout. Each of our customers also receives a unique access code for entry, so you can be sure that only you are able to access your e-commerce stock.
Our innovative drive-up storage units are also suitable for business purposes and are particularly ideal for customers who require a secure self-storage solution with easy access. All of our storage facilities are ideally located near town centres, train stations and major motorway networks. However, our external drive-up units offer maximum convenience and allow customers to drive directly to the unit and load or unload your e-commerce stock with ease.
A Productive Co-Working Space
Many of our SureStore self-storage facilities also offer a productive and affordable co-working space where you can take your business to the next level! Our modern office space offers business owners a desk to work from, unlimited WiFi, free parking and fantastic shared facilities, including a tea and coffee station.
Our cost-effective rolling monthly memberships means you’ll only ever pay an affordable fee each month and won’t need to worry about any business rates, maintenance costs or utility bills while you grow your online retail business. Our monthly credit system also means you can book out our professional boardroom for any important business meetings. Combined with our affordable self-storage solutions, it’s possible to run and grow your entire e-commerce business from our SureStore locations.
