Attic Self Storage launches a UK first in Harrow

Attic Self Storage, today announces a UK first in Harrow, by building a brand new self storage facility that will create more space for local residents and offer businesses storage with 24/7 access combined with work pod facilities.

The new site opens this spring and is perfectly equipped to cater for changes to the future of living and working practises beyond the pandemic, while uniquely offering a 100% contactless self storage service.  

Attic has seen a rise in business leaders and entrepreneurs swapping costly office rentals and co-working space for safe and secure self storage units.


Benefits include the  storing of files, office equipment and for eCommerce businesses to store their stock.

In response, Attic Self Storage has chosen to incorporate work pods into its new facility in Harrow.  The numerous work pods will offer a convenient space for customers to work away from the storage units themselves with access to wifi, plugs for laptops and access to a printer and coffee as well as the opportunity to interact with other businesses.   

Also, with many Brits continuing to work from home, 59% say they will be making home improvements in 2021 to adapt their homes.

This includes over 1 in 5 (22%) Brits who need more storage space* following the global crisis. 

Each unit is secured with a keyless electronic lock which customers can control via an app.

Customers can receive notifications on their app every time their unit is opened, and can delegate  access to friends, family or colleagues when needed, providing a convenient and flexible storage solution. 

The Harrow store showcases a modern design with steel units spanning from 10 to 500 sq ft to meet a range of customer storage needs, with a total planned capacity of 1,000 units.

Attic presents state of the art facilities and develops new services and digital tools to ensure customer service is at the forefront of the business.

It was the first operator to offer a full online quotation, check-in and account management system in 2016 and the world-first to offer virtual reality in self-storage.

As well as storage, Attic offers meeting room hire, packaging products and mailbox rental.  Attic actively engages with the local communities served by the business, supporting local charities and good causes wherever it can.

Frederic de Ryckman de Betz, Founder and CEO of Attic Self Storage, comments: “Attic is excited to launch a first in Harrow, to provide a safe and secure environment for business leaders looking for convenient ways to work and store stock.

“Also, Attic looks forward to supporting families in the community who will be looking to create more space in their homes following the pandemic.

“We are already taking bookings with the facility opening this March.”
