We used a storage container at Optima Self Store Stamford for about 6 months, in-between moving house. It was hassle free and very simple to use. The people are lovely and friendly, and have the cutest dog! I would highly recommend their self-storage facility.

I used this service when between houses. The set up of account was quick and simple, access was easy and the container and site clean. It was easy to contact the office and the deposit was returned promptly when the keys were returned.

I stored my house contents here for 2 years with no problems. Access was very easy. Unit was clean and airtight, my stuff has survived intact thankfully! When I gave notice the team were incredibly helpful and made sure my account was sorted quickly. I would certainly recommend Optima and use again if needed.

I used Optima for about 4 months while I moved house and was very impressed with the service and facilities. 24/7 access to the site. Just swipe your key and you're into the secure compound. Clean and well priced units that you can drive right up to and unload. Unlike some of the warehouse type places where you have to park miles away and then negotiate long corridors. I would definitely recommend them.

Storage containers at reasonable rates. Only thing i would say is that it's quite isolated if you are a woman on your own.

Can't fault them. The facilities and service have been great. Clean, well ventilated units. Secure, 24hr access. Friendly helpful team. Competitively priced, especially for a central location. Will use again.

I rented a unit at Optima Self Store for 18 months and can thoroughly recommend the facility. The units are in excellent condition (mine was new) and the site is clean, tidy and very secure. The 24/7 access works well, and everything ran trouble free. At the end of my rental the deposit and rental refund was paid back into my bank account within 1 day. I have no hesitation in recommending Optima to anyone looking for self storage.
