You may not realize it at the time, but when you take a storage rental, what may have been an intention to have a short-term storage rental may end up being a long-term rental. This is because often you don’t know how long you are going to need a storage unit for when you take it.

If you maybe do have a good idea of how long your storage rental is going to be then that’s great, and you can tell the storage facility accordingly. However, if you don’t, it’s not a big problem because a short-term rental can be turned into a long-term rental without having to do anything.

This is because a self-storage rental is rolled over on a month-to-month basis, which means that you don’t have a long-term rental commitment when you need extra storage space. It’s clearly a very convenient way of storage when you need it.

At Stop & Store Penrith we are on standby to assist you and handle all your queries. we’re ready to help you and field all your questions. Our friendly storage experts are well equipped to give you all the answers to both short term and long-term rentals. They are qualified to give advice on ways to organize your storage unit to accommodate the length of your occupation and your special needs (we will discuss more about that later).

Flexible Storage for You

The great thing about the facility at Stop & Store Penrith is that you don’t have to decide how long you want to rent a self-storage unit with us. We are flexible with our arrangements with our clients.

We have had clients that have been with us for years, and they started out saying that they need the self-storage unit for a few months. We have grown with them, using self-storage to suit their needs, not having to commit until they are ready.

This is great when you don’t have to tie yourself down to a long-term contract. Simply by being able to sign up for a duration for no longer than a month at a time! So, when you contact us give us an indication, but know that there is no need to have to commit if you don’t know how long you need a storage unit for.

The beauty of it all is that it’s like having an extra storage room at home for the things that you use less frequently, but still need from time to time. Often these items have a great deal of value. This could be your seasonal sporting equipment, or bicycles.

At Stop & Store Penrith a lot of our regular customers are either as permanent renters or using the storage unit as and when its required. This is a most convenient feature of self-storage.

Security Number One Priority

Security of the contents of a self-storage unit is the number one priority of the storage facility. We at Stop & Store Penrith take storage very seriously. This is reflected in the design of the storage facility. All the storage units are housed inside a protected building for safety purposes. The storage units are monitored by CCTV cameras on a 24-hour basis.

The steel storage units are secure with a door which has a heavy-duty metal bar that crosses the front of it for added protection. The metal bar allows for the fitment of two locks by the user.


When it comes to location, Stop & Store is situated in the most convenient place: We are just a stone’s throw from Penrith, situated not more than ¼ mile off the A66. In relation to the M6, we are just off the motorway.  This means that whichever way you are traveling, from south, north, east, or west we are right there.

When you arrive at our facility you will enjoy excellent access to your units, which we have designed for your maximum ease of offloading and re-loading.


A much-ignored feature but very necessary in areas like Cumbria which gets cold, is the insulation of the storage unit. By using thermal insulation lining inside each container Stop & Store can help keep the storage container at ambient temperatures. The action of the thermal lining is to reflect the cold or heat away from the container. As temperature regulation is an important element when it comes to storage, this feature helps ensure that stored goods are kept in good condition and are not prone to spoilage by temperature variations.

Size Counts

The adequate size of the container units at Stop & Store Penrith provides for storage space of approximately 60 sq feet. This is enough to accommodate a small flat’s contents. With the length of 9.5 feet and height and breadth of 6.5 feet, there is enough space to accommodate lounge furniture including long couches, upright refrigerators all being the equivalent of 120 medium sized boxes.

If you have any doubt whatsoever about whether your intended goods for storage will fit into the container unit, please feel free to speak to any of our friendly consultants, who will guide you accordingly.
