SmS Benefits

Now you know what we do, where the idea came from and how we compare to big business, we thought we’d put together a list of all the benefits of using There are quite a few of them:

Reduce storage costs by up to 70%

Everyday people and 'best practice' self-storage firms offering self-storage on can help you reduce your storage costs by up to 70%.

No hidden charges

All storage prices on SmS are set by the storage providers with no hidden costs. So the price you see is the price you pay and not a penny more.

Safe and secure

All our users are required to abide by our Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy. These ensure everyone is clear about their responsibilities to the SmS community. In addition, we recommend that bookings/reservations are made through Paypal for added peace of mind. For more detail see 'Protection, Insurance & Safety' FAQs.

Impartial reviews

SmS uses a bespoke review system that enables people to gauge the credibility of a potential storage user or provider before making any commitments. Just as with ebay this system helps the community to moderate and reward itself.

Reduce carbon emissions

Our community is able to access secure storage closer to where they need it. That means reduced journey times and significantly lower carbon emissions for all. Plus, we’re all about making use of storage space that already exists, reducing the need to build more concrete warehouses.

Friends with benefits…

It’s one thing to find budget-friendly, environmentally-friendly self-storage space but there’s also packaging and transportation to consider. That’s why we’ve decided to team up with some other great, carbon-efficient services, so all your storage needs can be satisfied with a few simple clicks: 

  • eco-boxes: returnable, reusable super eco-friendly packaging
  • the online shipping marketplace


At its core SmS is an online social platform that enables regular people to help each other to achieve a goal and by doing so build trust in society. What may begin as a transaction between a storage provider and a potential user will in all likelihood result in you meeting in a like-minded local. If you play your cards right there might even be a cup of tea, a biscuit and helping hand thrown in!


Finding storage has never been straight forward...until now that is.
