Company background

Big Yellow is the second largest player in the self-storage market with 73 stores nationwide. Established in 1998 the company values itself on having the highest security measures in the industry coupled with a friendly face to greet you. The USP of Big Yellow is that each unit is individually alarmed

Security

The USP of Big Yellow is that each unit is individually alarmed, something which competitors don’t do across the board. Each area can only be accessed via a pin entered to a digital lock and CCTV is in operation 24 hours a day.

Individual units also have to be secured with a padlock (which the customer provides). This gives customers peace of mind that only they can access the unit.

Access Times

Big Yellow Storage is open during regular business hours Monday through Saturday, and is open for a limited time on Sundays.

Contract Length & Flexibility

7 days is the minimum you can rent a Big Yellow Storage space and there are no notice periods on exiting. The company is currently offering a 50% discount of the first 8 weeks of rental. Customers do also have to front a deposit which is refunded upon exit.
