General

Little Green Self Storage is for people who have too much stuff at work or home and want to be tidy and organised.

The storage facility at Elmstead Market will give you access to your own clean and secure room.

Our aim is provide an affordable, high quality and secure storage facility that will meet your everyday needs.

You will be able to store goods that you do not want on a daily basis, but they are important enough to keep for personal or business use.

Obviously you can’t store anything which might cause a fire or damage to other people’s property. For example you can store a chain saw, but you need to take the petrol out of its tank.

Equally you cannot store anything illegal. We are regularly visited by either the Police or Her Majesty’s Customs and Excise for routine inspections.

On the A133 in Elmstead Market, Essex. Its 4 miles from Colchester, 11 miles from Clacton and 13 miles from Harwich.

Pricing

Call one of the team to find out about our attractive and flexible pricing policy. Don't forget you get 50% off your first 8 Weeks!

You pay monthly in advance and only pay a 7 day fully refundable deposit when you move in.

We keep our pricing as simple as possible.

If you want to leave you need to give just 7 days notice, leave your unit tidy and return your key fob. We will refund you the balance of the month’s payments.

We can offer cheaper rates if you commit to a 6 or 12 months stay in advance.

We insist that all customers pay by standing order via PayPal. This keeps our administration costs, and thus our prices, low. If you don’t currently have a PayPal account, registering is a quick 2 minute process.

It is your responsibility to ensure payments are made promptly and efficiently. The cost of dealing with part payments and payment plans is unsustainable for a facility of this size. So if you don’t pay please expect us to take rapid action which may result in the sale or destruction of your goods and legal action against you personally. Please see our terms and conditions which are in line the industry standard.

Just drop us an email with your new contact details and we will do the rest.

Storage

Your room will be locked with your own lock.

Simply put, we want to ensure that your items are safer in our facility than they are in your own home.

If you lose the key fob, inform us immediately and we will deactivate it. We will then issue you with a replacement for a small fee of £5.00 each.

We will only open your store room if we suspect there’s something dangerous or illegal inside, or if we’re required to do so by Law.

Remember that our terms forbid you from storing anything illegal (including drugs) or explosive or inflammable in your rooms.
