What can’t I keep in a Loknstore unit?

May 22, 2014

You’d be forgiven for thinking that there was nothing you couldn’t keep in a storage facility, and you’d almost be right. All sorts of things can be kept in storage units, from cars and beds to smaller, less valuable items like old toys and books that you don’t have space for but don’t want to throw out completely – what can we say, we’re a species that likes to hoard!

However, there are certain things that you can’t store in a Lok’nstore unit – it should be fairly obvious why but it’s worth going through the list anyway just so you’re not surprised when we have to turn down something!

Common sense should guide you when you’re thinking about what you’d like to store. What are the chances that we’d agree to store a live (or even deactivated) grenade that might potentially blow the whole facility up? Pretty non-existent, to be honest. We won’t store anything illegal (so if your name’s Walter White, we don’t want to see any crystal meth or drug money coming through, OK?) or anything that could potentially be dangerous in the way of chemicals or flammable items (and that includes gas and fireworks).

Additionally, we won’t store any food or materials that are perishable or keep live animals for you – we’re a storage facility, not a kennel service! If you’ve managed to get your hands on a lion cub and it’s grown too big and vicious for your home, take it to the zoo and let people who know what they’re doing deal with it – don’t bring it here!

Apart from that, pretty much anything goes. If you’re not sure about whether your item will be allowed to be stored, get in touch before turning up. Especially if you’re actually planning on bringing a lion. Because we’ll run away.
