Choosing the perfect self-storage unit in Oxford Circus


The first, most important factor in choosing the right self-storage unit for your needs is the location. You want to choose a unit that is conveniently located near your home or office to make it easier for you to access your belongings whenever you need them. Oxford Circus is a busy area, home to a variety of businesses - from bars and restaurants to medical practises and offices - so business storage is always in high demand. Our Vanguard Oxford Circus branch is ideal not only for business customers looking for some extra space, but also for customers looking for short-term or long-term domestic storage.


The size of the self-storage unit is another important factor to consider; you will need a unit that is large enough to accommodate all of your belongings, however, you also don't want to pay for space that you don't need. Our self-storage units come in a variety of sizes, ranging from compact lockers to larger units. To determine the size of the unit you need, make an inventory of all the items you plan to store, and use our storage size guide to help you make the right choice. Due to the flexible nature of our storage contracts, you can always size up or down during your stay, allowing your unit to change based on your needs.


At Vanguard Storage, we pride ourselves in offering safe and secure storage units with 24-hour CCTV, intruder and fire alarms, and a robust access control system with individually alarmed units to keep your belongings stored securely under lock and key. Security is in fact one of the most important factors to consider when choosing a self-storage unit. By opting for a unit that has security features such as surveillance cameras, alarms, and secure access codes you will have the peace of mind you need to know that your belongings can only be accessed by you.
