from business owners to students, families and house movers.

Self storage is a service that allows individuals or businesses to rent secure and convenient storage units when they need extra space to store their goods.

Why do people need self storage?

There are various reasons people choose to store their belongings in self storage units. Everyone is slightly different, but here are some popular reasons we’ve come across.


Moving house often leaves our customers requiring temporary storage for their home contents when they’ve sold their property but their new home is not yet available. It can be particularly handy if you need to redecorate before moving into your new house.

Or perhaps you’re having building work done to your house and would like to protect your furniture and possessions against damage. You can avoid clutter and can keep things neat with a self storage unit.

At Clear Space Self Storage we have a wide range of room sizes from 5 sqft to 175 sqft to suit your requirements. Like our unit sizes, we are very flexible and you can increase and decrease your storage as often as you like and you’ll only be charged for the size of unit you occupy.

Whatever your reason for requiring storage we have the right size storage unit for you.


Self storage isn’t just for individuals and families storing their home contents. You can also use our units for your business needs. With convenient opening hours 7 days a week, you can access your storage space when you need. For added convenience we provide super-fast wifi, free coffee and water in our customer welcome area so you can keep up with those emails and customer orders.

Clear Space Self Storage offers your business the ultimate in secure and flexible unit sizes. Choose from over 500 units in our custom facility or for those businesses looking to store heavy goods or those that require even more convenient access, we also offer drive-up storage units in our secure external storage area.

Your storage unit can be configured to your business’ individual needs with customized racking. Speak to our friendly storage team today to discuss how we can help manage you storage requirements.

Whatever your storage needs, we have your business covered. 

Who can rent a unit and
what do you need to do so?

Does it sound like self storage could be helpful? Then you’ll be happy to hear that anyone can rent a unit. 

A lot of people think self storage is expensive, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.

There are plenty of options to choose from, so you can find a unit that will meet your budget. All that is needed to rent a unit is photo ID, an up-to-date proof of address and insurance.

Don’t worry if you don’t have insurance. Speak to one of our friendly team who can arrange insurance for you.

    • 5 star review  Very helpful manager here

    • 5 star review  Highly recommend! James was exceptional, very friendly and gave us a full tour of the storage options before we signed up, the facility was immaculate and they make the whole process very straight forward. Moving house can be a stressful time and the team at Clear Space definitely made it easier for us. Another great benefit is you are not stuck in long contracts and only have to give them 7 days notice. I would certainly use them again and would highly recommend.

    • 5 star review  The staff couldn't be more helpful. A lovely lady called Cherry answered all my queries and questions. She explained everything step by step and followed it up with a detailed email. I felt reassured that they were so organised and knew what they were doing. Thank you very much.

    • 5 star review  Great new Self Store place just opened in Shepton. It's new and very shiny with a great choice of storage spaces. A totally professional outfit, with very clean, dry and secure indoor storage, in contrast to the leaky old containers to be found outside in a muddy yard like many other Somerset "Self Store" places that I won't mention. This is the real deal. Reasonable rates and James in reception is super helpful. Highly recommended. It's also a parcel drop off location for UPS, DHL and DPD, which Shepton has needed for a very long time. A great addition to the town.

    • 5 star review  Has taken the stress out of moving for me. Simply chose the storage space that was big enough for my home contents and gradually filled it up. Coming and going is easy and security top notch. I was especially grateful for the use of large trolleys to help with unloading and wheeling stuff to the lockup.

    • 5 star review  The staff are incredibly helpful, friendly and efficient (they arranged my refund within 24 hours of me moving my belongings out). The facility is well maintained and of a high standard. The removal men who helped me put my stuff in and take it out all commented that it was one of the best they had seen. Highly recommended.
