At Storeaway, providing the ultimate self-storage service to our customers, staff, and the communities, while at the same time protecting the planet is at the heart of how we do business. By repurposing city-centre buildings, we are not only avoiding the environmental damage of developing new ones, but it enables us to be near to our customers, saving them time and money.
United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
We are proud to be an active contributor to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The three we identify most with are:
Sustainable Cities and Communities

Here are a few examples of how we’re supporting them:

11% of total global carbon emissions are due to the development of new builds. By repurposing buildings, we minimise our environmental footprint.
All packaging materials, including tape, plastic and cardboard, are recycled and recyclable.
