What’s not allowed?
Your license to store belongings with Wantsum Self Storage doesn’t extend to the following items:
People. We offer a license to use our storage facility for belongings, but don’t confuse this with a rental agreement. You may not live in this space and you may not sublet it.
Animals. This isn’t the place to keep your pets, however large or small. You may be subject to animal cruelty and abuse charges if you choose to ignore this rule.
Plants. Plants need light if they are to thrive; they will die if you leave them in storage.
Office space. You may not run a business directly from our storage space. We are happy for you to store office furniture, equipment and archive with us.
Food. We do not allow storage of food and perishable items. The only exception to this rule is canned goods.
Firearms, munitions, gunpowder and explosives. We offer secure storage space, not an armoured unit.
Hazardous materials and waste storage. You’ll need to find somewhere else to keep your excess flammable, explosive or radioactive belongings. If it’s corrosive, chemical, odorous, noxious or toxic, it cannot be put in to self storage. This includes lead paint, asbestos, urea formaldehyde, polychlorinated biphenyl, petroleum, petroleum products and constituents, bottled gas including methane, medical waste, toxic substances and related materials.
Stolen goods of any kind can’t be kept in self storage. If we suspect illegal activity, we have a policy of reporting suspicious behaviour to the police.
Cash. Forget what you’ve seen in US dramas. Your cash will be much safer in a safe deposit box at your bank.
