About us

Kangaroo Self Storage was founded by Chris Stevens in 2004 and the first storage centre opened in Dundee in 2005.

The company has storage centres across Scotland and the North West of England and we provide secure, personal storage units to meet the needs for extra storage space from commercial, domestic and student customers.

A number of storage centres offer additional facilities including offices, drive up or lock up units, business units with direct access and long-term parking spaces.

Kangaroo Self Storage has self storage centres in the following locations:


We’re a small troop but we don’t let that stand in our way. We’re focused on everything we ‘kan do’ to help make Kangaroo a great place – whether that’s for our troop, our Kustomers or our Kommunity!

… for our Troop:

We recognise that it’s people that make the difference – and often it’s how you do things that matter most. Kangaroo has a full training programme that supports our troops providing customer service, sales and technical training, so that the team can be confident that everything they do is in the best interests of our customers.

What’s more, when we select new members to join our troop – we’re always on the lookout for people that are helpful and friendly. Visit our careers page and take a look through our current vacancies or make a speculative enquiry.

… for our Kustomers:

We provide some great services including the ability to hire a van at your time of move in with our partners, Enterprise Car Club (you could qualify for a credit, terms and conditions apply);  a certified shredding service; extended hours access or 24hr access by arrangement (there is a fee) and we’ll take receipt of your deliveries for you.

We check to make sure we offer competitive prices and useful special offers. We back up our great prices with expert advice and service.

We’re committed to providing excellent customer service and have again been awarded FEEFO’s Platinum Trusted Service Award.

Security is the priority; we know our customers aren’t simply storing things – but valuable possessions and stock. All our centres are located in safe and easily accessible locations and covered by 24hr CCTV monitoring. Staff are onsite during trading hours and fire smoke detectors provide further peace of mind.


We help businesses big, small and those just starting out. We know times are unpredictable right now and many of the businesses we support make use of the flexibility of our storage agreements. With no business rates to pay and utilities all covered, our business customers have a clear handle on costs and benefit from a friendly on-site team providing a range of extra benefits too. Security goes without saying and whether businesses are just storing stock, using us as a distribution base or working from our offices, peace of mind is assured.

For those businesses that need storage across multiple sites, our National Customer Troop provides a single point of contact to keep things simple.


Many of our customers not only use storage when they need some extra space at home – but also at times of change in their lives and that can be for a whole host of reasons. We know this often means that the extra space is needed just when life becomes stressful. So, whether our customers are buying their first home, decluttering, moving house, having a baby or downsizing,  the troop at Kangaroo can be trusted to help.

… for our Kommunity:

Our troops are part of the local community and the teams support a wide range of local community projects year round. From fundraising to donating discounted or free storage space the charities that benefit are many and varied.

Each year the team at Altrincham co-ordinate a local Toy Appeal with the support of Altrincham FC to provide toys and gifts for the users of a number of smaller charities.

The Group’s corporate charity is Maggie’s Centres and this year we’re doing a range of fundraising events to raise money to support the work that takes place in Centres across the UK.

Not only that, but the company also recognises its responsibility to the wider community and we work hard to create a company that is more environmentally sustainable. At all sites we have a green first renewal strategy. Where sites allow, we generate our own electricity with rooftop solar panels and we are constantly working to reduce our carbon footprint through greener initiatives – for example; utilising LED lighting and selling recycled packaging materials from our Box Shops.

Kangaroo Self Storage is a member of the industry body, the SSA UK and we take part in Trading Standards Tick Box Scheme.
