BBC have recently launched a mini series called Business Boomers and with the incredible boom in Britain’s storing items, it comes as no surprise the storage industry is hot property. And here’s why...
In the last 30 years Britain has become the biggest self storage industry in Europe. We spend around half a billion pounds a year on self storage!
But Storemates has an alternative to this huge profit making business, as featured in the BBC2 doc Real Storage Wars, with the lovely Storemate Caroline showing us her loft...

We are a nation that loves to keep hold of our belongings, yet ironically, we want more space in our houses! Enter: Lok’nStore, Big Yellow Self Storage and Safestore Self Storage.
These are big corporate companies who swept the market and as Andrew Jacobs said from Lok’nStore: “ I felt like I’d come into the kitchen and there was a briefcase full of £20 notes sitting on the table that nobody else could be bothered to take.”
Storemates is an alternative to this, we link people who have storage with those who need it. We cut most of the admin costs to give you storage that is 50% cheaper than these companies. We want the excess of the money going back into the community rather than ripping you off!
