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.

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.

Call David on 01305 830000.

“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
