Are you planning to use Hogleaze Storage in the near future for storing your vehicle, caravan or belongings? Whether you have been storing elsewhere for many years now, or are a newbie to the storage world, it’s always good to know what to expect when you arrive. In this article, we will walk you through both our sites so you’re fully clued up!
Our Dorchester storage facility
With Dorchester being our first and largest storage facility, we thought it would be useful to start with this one…
Upon turning off the A35, you will drive down the very scenic ‘Roman Road’ which will lead you to Hogleaze Storage, with views spanning miles of fields, you may want to take a moment to enjoy the landscape before turning into the facility. We are very tucked away from the road and are, in fact, impossible to see from the road unless you know where to look which is one of the great security features of ours.
After driving a little further, you will come across the three large outdoor caravan/motorhome storage areas on your left, these are made secure using large heavy-duty gates or barriers which can only be accessed via the use of a personal passcode or key fob.
Whilst driving down the track you will notice some more of the high-security features we have on-site, including CCTV and number plate recognition so we have a record of every vehicle entering or leaving our sites.
Drive a bit further and you will come across one of the main storage units which houses units from 25 sq ft to 150+ sq ft, perfect for all sorts of storage including furniture, sports equipment, documents and business belongings and much more. You will then see the vehicle storage buildings suitable for classic cars, caravans, motorhomes, boats and trailers, trust us, you can’t miss them!
Did you know… we also have another large building located at our other Dorchester site which is packed full of even more units, it’s just a short drive away from reception.
If you’re here for the first time and need to speak to our staff, you will see signs for the reception (it’s just past the old Shepherds Hut which you may spot), there is plenty of parking here and is also where you will go if you need any storage boxes or need to fill in any paperwork before storing.
One of our staff members (Richard or Shelley) will then give you a site tour based on the service you will be using and will show you to your unit.
And that’s about it! You will now have 24/7 access to your unit or plot so you can come and go when you please.

Our Weymouth storage facility
Whilst it may not be such a beautiful, countryside drive to the Weymouth storage unit, it’s made up for by the grandeur of the facility and is very easy to find.
Once you have located the Granby Industrial Estate, you will need to find Cambridge Road, Sat Navs never have an issue finding us, so simply pop the below address in:
Weymouth facility address: 12 Cambridge Road, Granby Industrial Estate, Weymouth, Dorset, DT4 9TJ
There is plenty of parking outside the facility so you shouldn’t have a problem and will be close to the main doors to get your belongings in and out. Our reception is to the right of the building where one of our staff members (David or Paul) will be able to assist you. The storage facility is on three floors with units ranging from 16 sq ft to 200 sq ft but don’t worry whilst on initial arrival it may seem very large, you will quickly get used to finding your way around.
There are lifts and staircases to make transporting your belongings easy and also trolleys which you are welcome to use. The corridors to the units are plenty wide enough so you won’t have an issue navigating the building.
