Affordable secure storage in Lancashire: 365 day access for businesses and householders

When life’s big events come along they can sometimes feel overwhelming … let Lancashire-based Tortoise Storage take the strain.

The team behind a family-run storage firm, with bases in Knowsley and Leyland, know that sometimes we all need breathing space. And their top quality, secure units offer storage solutions when and where you need them.

Owner John and the team always have the kettle on ready for customers old and new. Their years of experience and friendly nature means that popping by for a cuppa to discuss your storage needs, and how they can help, makes for a no-pressure, no obligation chat to help find a solution.

The team at Tortoise Storage are well aware that storage is often required during life changing moments and not always good ones. They’re sensitive to your needs and understanding of your requirements at what can be an already stressful time. 

Moving home – temporary storage

Often when people are moving from one home to another there can be weeks or even months between moving dates. Storing an entire household is a big thing – you want a totally secure and trustworthy service, somewhere you can access when you need to, and at a price that won’t break the bank.

One of the toughest moves is when a lifetime spent in a large family home has to be condensed down to a smaller property, or even into a residential setting. If you or a loved one are not yet ready to say goodbye to precious items, or want some time to consider whether to sell, recycle, regift or bin, Tortoise Storage is the excellent half-way house.

Loss of loved one

When you lose a loved one the stress of dealing with their estate and belonging is a lot to handle. Having a secure place to store their belongings until you are ready to sort through it all properly can be a huge help and relieve some of that pressure.


They say moving house and divorce are among the most stressful events anyone can go through, yet often these two go hand in hand.

Tortoise storage can offer temporary secure storage to keep items safe, until the couple reach an agreed solution for their disposal.

Running a business

The way we work has changed massively in recent years, and some entrepreneurs are choosing not to invest in bricks and mortar premises, and instead think smarter, not harder.

Using a storage unit as a stock room – with handy access via a secure keycode system 365 days a year – makes for an affordable, practical solution for retail firms.

And with the rise in work from home, firms can also use storage for their files, allowing them to operate from a smaller, hot-desking office, rather than an expensive traditional space.

Two units with flexible rental times

With sites in both Knowsley and Leyland, John and the team have a range of unit sizes and rental terms available. Discounts are available for longer term unit rentals.
