Crane-lifted Storage

At Vanguard Self Storage, we don’t just store the odd item here and there – we’re also fully capable of storing extremely large and heavy items with our crane. In the beginning, Vanguard was a specialist machinery installation firm, moving heavy equipment and goods, and we still retain those skills today.

And as testament to our ability to provide industrial storage and crane lifting services, you only need to look at our Ealing storage centre. In the past, our roof has been adorned by a Spitfire fighter plane, a former RAF Hawker Hunter fighter jet, artillery guns and even an old bus.

Whatever you need moving and storing by crane, we’ll certainly be able to help.

Storage with Heavy Lifting Equipment

We’re also proud to offer industrial storage solutions with heavy lifting equipment to customers throughout London and Manchester. Our experienced team are able to use forklifts to navigate your heavy goods into place, storing them securely and safely.

To find out more about our heavy lifting and storage services, our friendly customer services and competitive rates, simply contact us today.

I had a good experience with W1 Storage - I had a small unit for around 2 years and the conditions and access were always good. Jay handled the account well and when I gave notice, instructions were clear and I received my part month refund promptly. Recommended

I had a great experience with W1 self storage. The staff, especially Joao, were very helpful, professional, and timely with correspondence. The units (in the basement of a garage) were relatively clean, dry, and secure. I will use them again if needed.

It has been an excellent experience. People are very helpful, services are excellent, everything is straight forward. The conditions of the contract are easy and without hidden terms, the conditions of getting out of it, are even more simple. I wish I could always find '' a w1 ''' for my company 's needs.

Excellent service, I use this place when in London. Jay is been there all this time, so it's really easy to go through the move-in process.

Joao is very helpful and assisted me all throughout the process of having my storage unit. He responded to emails very quickly and didn’t hesitate to explain things again if I was unsure about something. Very pleased with my experience.

Amazing place, amazing service, amazing location. Communication was easy and fast, all our questions were answered promptly. Alistair Allman was beyond helpful, welcoming, and cooperative. He walked us through the process, recommended certain services, explained procedures and was extremely patient with our many questions. We were looking for a storage service as we prepared my daughter for university and are very happy to have chosen them. We highly recommend their services. Thank you Alistair for all your help.

From our initial enquiry to actually put the items into storage Jay was brilliant. Confirming by telephone to make sure we were happy and then again to check our timings closer to the arrival date. Upon arrival the process with Jay was seamless and everything was explained in detail.

Super useful storage based in the HEART of London. It’s easy to access with a car, and they have 2 months at -50% when you start a contract with them. I didn’t use all the days I had paid for and got a refund and my deposit back smoothly, thanks Jay!!

I've had the pleasure of working with Jay for the last two months at Vanguard.. I couldn't ask for or imagine a better point of contact - he is consistently helpful, addressing all of my queries and requests immediately (and there have been MANY!), taking stress out of managing storage for our constantly-fluctuating needs.. Honestly, it is the most pain-free experience I have ever dealt with when it comes to working with vendors.. I highly recommend using Vanguard for ANY storage needs..

Amazing service and very friendly staff. They helped with my storage at a very short period of time, and really appreciate the flexibility they are offering to make sure I have a secured unit. Clean and safe storage in Central London, I do highly recommend it. The only issue I had was the height restriction in the carpark, it didn't allow Luton vans to drive inside and park right outside the storage, but speak to the staff there and they are happy to offer solutions. Make sure to mention this to the man & van or removal companies too so they have an idea. It worked out fine for me with the loading, just took a little longer.

Really nice experience here with Jay, I was not 100% sure of what size unit to go for but at no point did I feel I was being pressured to take a larger unit. Every point of the process was explained in detail clearly for me. thanks very much.

Was a super nice visit. The customer service was excellent - I was received by a young lady named Amal - she was a very lovely lad. I came in at the start of my visit somewhat stressed, but she answered all my queries, and even helped give me some personal advise (my boyfriend cheated on me countless times and he had the audacity to kick ME out). Anyway, I didn't have anywhere to stay and all this extra stuff with no idea where to store it, but coming here really saved my life. Will definitely visit again! And will definitely recommend to others!

Very well run and managed storage facility with excellent security in Central London. I have been a customer for a couple of years now and have always found the organisation and efficiency to be first class. I have primarily dealt with Joao for whom nothing is ever too much trouble. He is professional, courteous and always helpful. Would highly recommend this facility.

We have been so pleased with the service and quality of W1 Self Storage and the manager Joao. He is so helpful and has worked with us to upgrade our unit as needed over the last year or so. We would highly recommend using their facilities and services. They are friendly, polite and always willing to help in anyway they can. The facility is secure and very user friendly.
