boxes small newThere will come a time in everyone’s life when we all need that extra bit of space to store our possessions. Maybe you are buying a new home and are literally between house sales, or perhaps your hobby has outgrown the garden shed and garage and you need more room. There are multiple reasons when that extra storage space is the only answer.

Here at Mill Street Properties we have storage units that start from 10 metres square to an impressive 36 metres square, all of the units have keys and secure locks with some offering the option to add your own padlocks and extra security to the unit.
