What is big, long, yellow, and easily recognisable? Could it be:

big bird, sesame street

yellow submarine, liverpool

All three are correct, but not the answer I am looking for. Bananas, Big Bird, and a yellow submarine may be big, may be long, may be yellow, and may be easily recognisable, but they're not so good for storage.

Big Yellow Storage

That is where the Big Yellow Self Storage facility comes in handy. With seventy-six sites across the UK, this brightly coloured warehouse is impossible to miss.

Designed for home and business, they can provide anything from ten to four hundred square feet (and larger industrial units if need be). They provide the perfect solution for anyone who finds themselves with too much stuff, but unwilling to part with any of it. Whether you are moving house, travelling, going to university, or making home improvements, Big Yellow is for you.


Our family were in the latter category. Back in September we started a loft conversion, so we needed a place to put all our stuff. luck for us, we are close to the Merton branch. A simple phone call answered all our enquiries. We were given a quote, offered 50% off the first eight weeks, and able to reserve space. We were also able to move stuff in the very same day. Because it was Sunday, it was only open until 4pm, but the rest of the week you have until 6pm to drop off or collect. It took us several trips in the car, but if you prefer, you can also hire a van to come and collect your belongings.

You can choose to reserve space by the week, by the month, or as long as you require, and if you decide to pick up early, just give seven days advanced warning.
