Since 2013, the London Trading Standards Authorities (LoTSA) have been cooperating in an initiative designed to prevent the storage of illegal goods in self-storage facilities. In a series of intelligence-led raids in September 2012, counterfeit goods with an estimated street value of £6.5 million were seized from self-storage facilities in the capital, leading LoTSA to introduce the Tick Box code of practice, initially aimed at self-storage businesses in London.
Implicit in the code of practice is a commitment to prevent the storage of illicit goods, including counterfeit items and non-duty-paid tobacco and alcohol – a stance supported by every reputable self-storage business. Reading Storage Solutions is pleased to confirm its full backing for the Tick Box initiative, including adoption of the key recommendations of the code of practice.
At RSS, we offer all our customers peace of mind together with a secure facility in which business and domestic storage activities comply not only with industry best-practice but also full extent of the law. To find out more and to download a copy of the code of practice, visit the Tick Box website.
Self-Storage Units – What Should I Expect?
At Reading Storage Solutions, we cater for both domestic and business customers, recognising that their needs may be very different. Short-term, flexible self-storage is often best suited to homeowners needing a temporary home for furniture, household goods or seasonal items. Business users often require longer-term arrangements, although the same degree of flexibility and affordability is available as customer needs dictate.
You should expect a secure facility with easy access for authorised users seven days a week; RSS offers drive-up access to all our container-storage units, allowing easy loading and unloading for all types and sizes of load. There’s ample parking for your vehicle while you’re accessing your unit, and you can also store trailers, caravans and boats on-site by prior arrangement.

There isn’t one, though don’t just take our word for it – ask our customers. We pride ourselves in the level of repeat business from satisfied customers, and we’d be pleased to add you to our client list. Whether you have a few things that are cluttering up your home or a complete container load of business items, we can satisfy your storage needs with a minimum of fuss.
