Hi all,

I was an assistant bank manager. But I was not happy with it. I left my job after 6 years. Realizing that photography is my passion, I became a freelance photographer. I have a Nikon D850 DSLR camera, tripod, and other photography equipment. Next month, I am going to a meeting with the photographer's association in London.

I was looking for a safe storage service to keep my camera and equipment. Discussing with some of my friends, one of them suggested a residential storage unit solution service. Had anyone approached for their services before? Are they trustworthy? Shall I hire them? Please share your experiences and suggestions.

Thanks!

Could you expand a little? Why do you need to store your kit?

This really doesn't make sense. It's going to cost you over $100/mo for a 5X5 unit as well as the added cost of putting a rider on your insurance policy. Here in Canada, anything stored outside of your main dwelling is not covered by homeowners' insurance. Ask me, I know. ;)

I would never store it in a storage unit. As @Roger S said you would not be covered under your regular insurance either.

Get specific insurance to cover your gear and worry less about what may happen.

What is your connection with this company?
Straight question, so appreciate a straight answer.
Bear in mind I am an excellent and thorough sleuth when I put my mind to it.
