Here at Hippo Self Storage, we offer Mobile Self Storage Pod (MSSP). This new system of storage has been created to reduce costly removal fees by allowing you to load and unload the MSSP at your own home or work.
How is this different from normal Self Storage?
With normal Self Storage you have to hire or borrow a van, go and collect it, bully or beg friends and family for help, load and unload the van twice, Not to mention the return journey out of store, have the possibility of a lengthy walk to and from the actual rented store room, then return the van at the end of a long and tiring day.
How Mobile Self Storage works
The MSSP is placed within a purpose built trailer, which is then delivered as close as possible to your front door. You carry out your own packing and loading (This Service is offered), we then call back at an agreed time to collect the trailer and deliver it to our secure storage facility. This way there is no need to hire a van, no need to ‘double handle’ everything.
Hippo Self Storage are able to supply you with all the packing requirements that you have, from card board boxes to blankets to tape, if you would like some help deciding what you need then we do offer simple packaging packages, set number of boxes and tapes, feel free to drop into our depot and ask and we will be happy to show you what is available.
MSSP dimensions and capacity
The internal dimensions of the MSSP are 7ft high, by 7ft long, by 5ft wide. The cubic capacity of each unit is 250 c/ft or 7.14 c/mtrs.
At Hippos Self Storage we would usually allocate approximately 2 hours for you to pack and load your MSSP. If you do require more time then please feel free to arrange this with out driver when he drops the MSSP off or simply call the office.
The golden rule of loading is to place all big and heavy items at the bottom of the MSSP with lighter items on top. Remember to pack the MSSP as tightly as possible to reduce possibility of load movement. As a rule we supply 10 Transit Blankets to assist you with packaging and protecting your items especially highly polished surfaces. However should you feel you need more than 10 please arrange this when booking your MSSP. Any non-returned or damaged blankets will be charged for.
Access to your goods in storage
Access to your MSSP is available during open hours, however we will require 24hrs notice to make sure your MSSP is ready for you when you arrive. If you have more than 1 MSSP in store with us please make sure that you know what is in each box and that you ask for the correct MSSP to save time and any Delays.
