Weymouth storage | Everything you need to know

Everything you need to know about our Weymouth storage site

Are you considering using a self storage unit to house your business ‘stuff’ or home belongings? If you are local to Weymouth, you will want to find a facility that will suit your requirements as well as being affordable and flexible. In this article, we have outlined the top 20 things you need to know about our Weymouth storage site.

1. We’re based in Cambridge Road on the Granby Industrial Estate

Situated just 2 miles from the centre of Weymouth town, our storage facility is conveniently located on the Granby Industrial Estate, meaning free parking and easy access when you need to store.  

2. We’ve recently extended our storage facility to 3 floors

2019 was the year of expansion for Hogleaze Storage, our 30,000 square feet premise went upwards as we added a whole new floor of units to meet the demands of our customers. We have rapidly started filling up our new units which are still easily accessible using the onsite lifts.

3. Our manager, David, is a self-confessed storage expert

David has been with us from the very beginning of our Weymouth storage venture, so it’s safe to say that if he doesn’t know what size unit would be best for your belongings then no one will. You will likely bump into David when you visit Hogleaze, whether that’s for a tour of our facility or to provide you with some helpful tips on making the most of your space. Call David on 01305 830000.

4. We’re open 7 days a week

Not everyone has the flexibility to visit their unit during the weekdays, so we’re open 7 days a week to make it convenient for you. Whether you are popping in to pick up a single item or have a garage full that needs storing, we’re here when you need us!

5. We have units available for everyone

From tiny cupboard sized units, to a unit to fit your whole home in (well almost), you can rest assured that the size you need will be available. It can sometimes be hard to know how small or big you need to opt for but when booking your unit, but our team will ask all the right questions to make sure you get the size that’s right for you!

6. Our largest unit available is…

200 Sq ft! That’s pretty big and could probably fit the contents of a 4 or 5 bed house in. A great option if you are moving house and need somewhere to store your belongings in the meantime. Perfect for large appliances, sofas and other bulky furniture.

7. We’re rated pretty highly by our loyal customer base

Customer satisfaction is hugely important to us, whether it’s the friendly face on arrival, or our flexible storing contracts, we go above and beyond to make your storage experience a good one. We’re pleased to say we’ve achieved a 4.7 star rating on Google… take a look at our reviews here >>

“We’ve been super impressed with this storage facility. The manager, David, couldn’t do enough for us. The facility is clean, modern and well-lit, and prices are very competitive.  Access to the loading bay is great and the lift is huge, and there are large trolleys to move your goods from store to van. Can’t fault it.”

Peter, Weymouth Storage customer

8. We’re proud members of the SSA UK (Self Storage Association)

When looking for a storage facility, you will want to check they’ve got their SSA UK badge. This means that they have access to advice and training by the SSA to enable them to meet high standards within the storage industry.

You can learn more about how storage facilities receive the SSA badge here >>

9. The best things we’ve ever seen stored with us are…

We don’t actually always see what comes in but treat all customers the same as all items to them are precious. Some people have previously used their unit to store large book collections and make a whole library in their unit.

10. Our Weymouth storage facility opened in 2016   

We are now celebrating our storage site being open 4 whole years!

11. The longest time someone has stored their belongings with us is…

We have a few customers that have been storing with us since the 1st week we opened and haven’t left since, now that’s what we call customer loyalty!

12. We have plenty of trolleys & boxes to make storing simple

To make best use of your unit, we would advise that where possible you bring your belongings packed in boxes as this way you can optimise the space. If you haven’t had the chance to beg, borrow or steal boxes from friends or family, we have plenty that you can pick up from reception. We also have trolleys available to use, and with our large drop off point outside the front of the building, you won’t have to trek too far to get to your unit.

13. The most commonly stored item we see is…

Household storage wins the award for this one!

14. Our storage facility was featured in the Dorset Echo

Our manager David and owner Hugo were interviewed back in 2016 and featured in the Dorset Echo… you can read the article here >>

15. We have many businesses using our storage units

Storage units aren’t just for homeowners who need to make some space, we see many businesses come through our doors too.

Whether it’s to store extra stock safely, or you have too many documents that you need to archive, businesses use our units for many reasons.

16. We have a sister storage facility based in Dorchester

Hogleaze provides excellent facilities and service

We are emailing you to inform you that we have sold our motorhome and will no longer require the pitch. Should we buy another van, we will of course come back if you have availability.

You provide excellent facilities and service.

Really impressed with the service & customer-focused attention

I was really impressed with the service and customer-focused attention I received dealing with you both. Prompt replies to my enquiries and professional standards throughout mean that my first thoughts on needing storage will be towards Hogleaze. Also, as I mentioned when meeting you, my work involves motor homes, camper vans and the occasional ‘shed’ and I have and will continue to recommend you. I took several of your cards for this purpose!

Unfortunately, our house move failed as the buyers pulled out on Christmas Eve (nice) so I’ve put my MX5 back in our double garage but I was happy knowing it was safe and snug at yours!

Found the facility to be safe and secure

I used Hogleaze Storage for many years and found the facility to be safe and secure. My belongings stayed dry; the ambient temperature seemed just right and there was no dampness. Wooden furniture; cardboard boxes and books all survived intact. The staff are also helpful and friendly. I recommend this facility.

I really like the facility and I am very impressed with the setup you have.

It was lovely to meet you last Friday and finally get the Caravan in to secure storage. I really like the facility and I am very impressed with the setup you have. I received your welcome letter yesterday and have set up the standing order for the 1st July and then to continue at the begin of each month thereafter.

Thank you once again.

I would recommend Hogleaze Storage to anyone thinking of storing their possessions

It has been a most enjoyable experience entrusting Hogleaze Storage Ltd with my furniture, household and personal possessions, since August 2012.

It was good to meet Shelley, her helpful and friendly demeanor, nothing was too much – she even brought along bolt cutters in case I could not open the padlock on the shutter doors. She was happy to show Gentleman Removals and myself the way.

The service has been excellent throughout the seven years, with up-to-date monthly invoices and security information – thoughtful and caring – all my possessions including the ones I did not know I had stored in the unit, were intact and working.

I would recommend Hogleaze Storage Ltd to anyone thinking of storing their household, office and personal possessions, whether short or long-term. The location is worth a visit on its own, the site is safe and secure, clean and accessible 24/7.
