If you live in Newcastle or the surrounding areas of the North East, what are your options if you are considering self storage either for your business or personal belongings?

At Gurteen Transport we have many years experience in providing storage solutions and with our brand new, state of the art 20,000 square feet warehouse facility, we can look after all your storage needs

So what is storage and why do people use it?

Simply put, it is a service where members of the public or companies can rent a storage “unit” or “container” inside a warehouse type building to safely keep their belongings in the short to medium term.

Due to the fact that people these days have so many more personal possessions in this consumer dominated world being able to keep everything at home is not always a viable option.

Because of the way modern life is heading an entire industry has sprung up over recent years fulfilling people’s need to store items for them.  Nowhere more so has this need grown than in Newcastle and surrounding areas of the North East.

We are able to provide people with storage units that are exclusively theirs which they can have almost unlimited access to during opening hours.

You can relax safe in the knowledge that your items are safe and totally secure because they are under the watchful eye of our staff during opening hours and CCTV surveillance 24 hours a day. Crucially with the new lighter, brighter facilities we can offer, the premises are clean, dry and kept at a fairly constant temperature. All our self storage units have alarm systems for fire as well as theft detection giving you piece of mind.

For companies, having somewhere that accepts commercial storage as well as private customers is a must. They may just wish to store documents but stock is often the biggest thing stored for companies especially if they are looking to expand but don’t wish to commit to larger premises immediately.

In the past, most people with domestic belongings to store had to rely purely on organisations like removal firms to store household items for them but they traditionally didn’t offer instant access to your items and tied you in to fixed term contracts. Our service is tailored to your needs.

Self Storage Checklist

What questions should you ask yourself prior to starting your search for the right storage unit?

Do you require somewhere just for storing tools and heavy duty materials or more delicate items? What length of time do you anticipate storing your items for and is there any chance that this may need to be extended due to your circumstances changing?

This will influence whether an annual or monthly charge for hiring the unit would be better for you and can you just roll on the hire period indefinitely?

The most common reasons people look for a self storage unit is because they are moving house and they merely wish to hold their household belongings safely and securely for a month or two.

Also, people who are renovating or decorating their property often prefer to store furniture so it doesn’t get damaged or spoilt whilst the work is being carried out.

Sometimes it is students who just need to store items throughout the summer months before moving into new student digs in September for the new term at University.

One of the most important things to think about is how much space will you need? It’s easy to hire too big a unit from the different sized storage rooms available only to find you are paying for space you don’t need.


When choosing a storage solution in the Newcastle and the North East area, decide what factors are most important to you, such as access, monthly or annual costs involved, location, security etc.

It’s always advisable to have a look around the facilities yourself to see what it’s like and get a feel for what level of customer service you are likely to get.
