Celebrating 25 years of Storage Solutions

The Easistore Team

On the 19th May 2014 Easistore celebrated its 25 year anniversary, a momentous occasion for us. Not only are we in celebratory mood, marking our ¼ of a century, but we also celebrate the opening of our 4th Self Storage facility in Maidstone, the heart of Kent.

We can stretch our history all the way back to 1989 and have come a long way since. Our longevity is built upon core principles, chiefly providing great value and customer service, but also at the heart of it making each of our facilities a fun place to work to ensure each customer is greeted with a smiling face.

Over the years we have had many claims to fame, helping celebrities, reality TV stars and professional footballers. In those 25 years we've had the privilege of housing items from the strange to the extraordinary. The 12ft Tyrannosaurus Rex Dinosaur and Italian Police Motorcycles are a particular favourite but nothing tops the famous old Dalek prop. In fact you can still see the Malevolent Robot strolling around the corridors of our Tunbridge Wells store on YouTube, just search Dalek Easistore.

But why take our word for it? We have won numerous awards as testament to our innovation and superior customer service, but our crowning achievement, the award that sits highest on our mantelpiece is, and will always be, "Loo of the year 2008". That's right… we've had dozens of accolades based around our networking evenings, our commitment to CSR and customer service, but winning 3 national 5 Star gradings for the 'Best Away from Home Toilets in the UK' and the title of 'National Category Winner for Tunbridge Wells' are our proudest moments.

Adam Lacey, Sales Director of Easistore explains; "Whilst winning the "Loo of the Year" award is not the most celebrated success, it shows our determination in providing the best available Self Storage services in the South East. This, coupled with the wonderful personality and professionalism of our store teams, climate controlled storage rooms, carpeted corridors and complimentary delicious hot drinks – our pristine loos are just the icing on the cake in the comfort zone that we provide for our customers within which to store their precious belongings."

Easistore follow the mantra of working hard and playing hard, so to comply with this and to celebrate our unrivalled success over the years, every member of staff and their partners will be enjoying a very special evening at Hever Castle later this month, very close to the roots of our very first store. Enjoying the evening with a tour of the castle and a lovely meal.

Easistore founder and Managing Director, Paul Glenister, was at the forefront of the Self Storage industry's introduction in to the UK and has played a big part in its meteoric rise in the last 30 years. Paul went to great lengths visiting the United States to learn about the industry's success across the pond, and following that, designed and built the first purpose built Self Storage facility in the UK in 1995 to cater for what was a niche area of the market at the time.

In keeping with this philosophy the first of our 4 purpose built stores was constructed in Edenbridge. Off the back of this enormous success and subsequent growth we then proceeded to build stores in Tunbridge Wells, Crawley and now Maidstone. We were the first Self Storage Operator in the UK to understand the need and recognise the benefit to our clients by only operating out of purpose built facilities, ensuring we provide the best environment for you to store your items.

Our storage units provide climate controlled and affordable self storage solutions. So for whatever reason for you needing additional storage (personal or for business purposes) we are here to help! All of our self storage rooms, lockers and spaces are extremely secure and can house any size and number of your personal or business items. We offer document and file storage, wine cellar storage at a controlled temperature, and even purpose built drive-up external units.

Between the 4 stores we have at the moment, some 209,500 ft of storage space in approximate 2,553 individual rooms. This is equivalent to 2.6 football pitches.

Our market remains competitive and our Best Price Guarantee, excellent customer service and state of the art, secure, heated storage facilities ensures that we are remaining busy and servicing a wide range of household and business customers.

We provide a wide range of storage for our customer's needs, from furniture and clothes to wine, archives, model aircraft, photo collections, books, business stock, student storage (furniture, clothes, and books). In fact almost every customer has a different use for their storage room.

In addition to our fantastic Storage offering, we also supplement this with additional services to differentiate us from your everyday storage company:

  • FREE vans to move in.
  • Complete range of Packing supplies, boxes, bubblewrap and tape.
  • Insurance
  • Free Wi-Fi.
  • Hot drinks.

Whilst wishing to remain a privately owned, local business we are looking to grow our portfolio of stores and take our offering to more towns in the South East.
