Self Storage

Our self storage facility is well-covered by multiple CCTV cameras, floodlighting. We also provide 24 hour access for our customers, which makes it the ideal choice for private/domestic and commercial customers from Newcastle, Whitley Bay, North Shields and Wallsend. Different size containers are available. There are no long corridors. You simply drive your vehicle to your storage container and load or unload into your secure unit. It couldn’t be easier.

Why Use AZ Self Storage

Unlike most of our competitors our secure self storage container roofs are internally lined to prevent condensation. Container condensation is a real risk, especially in the winter months where container rain can occur .

Lined Containers

Lined containers significantly reduce the risk of damage to your container contents and only cost a little more than vulnerable unlined ones.

Our clients may only enter AZ Self Storage Ltd secure facility by using their own active Fob.

For security you MUST not let anyone in or out on your Fob . They MUST use their own period.

You MUST keep the entrance blocked with your vehicle till the gate is shut at all times so no one can squeeze past. In the unlikely event this happens please report it immediately.

AZ have the utmost respect for your security.
