We are! We’ve been working with DPD to provide this service since 2018 and lots of customers find that being away from town traffic, near the A30 and with ample free parking suits their needs really well.
When you go through the usual stages of the DPD website for either sending or collecting a parcel, you should be able to choose Eversley Storage. If you have any difficulties, don’t hesitate to give us a ring 0118 932 8328.
Should you need to move heavier duty items in and out of your steel container, a fork lift truck with driver is available for hire on our premises.

We offer the service Monday – Friday.
The charge is £34 for 15 minutes, including VAT.
Contact us in advance to book the fork lift truck and driver – we cannot always make this facility available on the day of request.

We keep customers’ information on our system so that everyone who takes your call or speaks to you when you come in can pull up your details. This means that you don’t have to explain your storage needs and situation to every new person you speak to. Once you are in storage with us it is kept up to date in real time, so that anyone you speak to can see if you’ve paid your bill, rung previously to ask a question, reserved an additional unit etc.
Before you become a customer, you would generally only receive two possible communications from us, without requesting something specific – if you reserve a unit, we will email you to confirm that reservation. If you don’t take up that reservation and we don’t hear from you, we will give you a ring to see if you still need the unit held in your name, or whether you’ve moved on in your thinking and we can cancel the reservation for you. That’s it. We do not have a regular call back schedule, whereby we ring everyone who has ever expressed an interest in storage and try to talk them into making their decisions quicker! We do not have a regular email broadcast along similar lines. When you hear from us, whether it’s before you come into storage or once you are a customer, it will relate to information that is specific to your account and directly affects you – we do not spray automatically generated content into your inbox on a weekly basis!
While everything changes and business practices do develop, we would like you to know that we’ve been in the storage business since 1988 and we take an old-fashioned approach to customer communication and customer service which informs our decision-making. This is not going to change. We have had decades to observe that our storage customers are usually busy and juggling lots of different factors in their lives – this applies whether they are expanding their business, moving house, renovating their house, sustaining demanding hobbies – whatever their circumstances, we’ve never yet met the customer who would welcome a constant stream of sales orientated mail, emails or phone calls, so we don’t do it.
There are a few pubs in Eversley village, if you’re ready to have a meal before you head home at the end of a long day. You could try The Golden Pot, The Chequers or The Tally Ho.
If you’re looking for a cafe to have a cuppa or a quick lunch, Hartley Wintney has several nice cafes – for takeaway sandwiches you could try Warings Bakery or to sit down and have something both the Courtyard Cafe which is at the back of Hartley Antiques and the Costa are easy to find on the village high street. There is also a convenience store in Eversley Village centre called Centre Stores which stocks snacks and drinks.
(Please note that these are not formal recommendations and we have no association with these businesses. The Marketing Manager has shopped in or eaten in all of them, but not regularly, so we cannot comment as to the continuing quality of the establishments.)
Yes. We recommend that you use plastic sheeting or liners to protect all fabrics, including home soft furnishings, leather sofas, fabric luggage and clothes. We sell mattress wrappers and tape – available to purchase from our office. You must also cover untreated wood either with storage blankets or plastic liners.
Our units are fully weather-sealed, with managed ventilation. This means that you need to be very careful not to bring damp items into the unit. Always make sure that goods are scrupulously dry before you bring them into storage. So, if you have wiped or washed any fabric, it needs to be 100% dry before putting into your storage unit. Bear this in mind for any motorcycle leather, car seats or mats which you might well give a quick clean before storing and be especially careful with shoes and coats.
Security is a central aspect of our service.
Our site is manned 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We have extensive CCTV and security lighting. When the premises is closed, the perimeter is locked down and our guard dog has the run of the site, along with his human security patrol partners!
Do have a look at our Security page to find out more about our security arrangements. If you have any particular queries that you would like to discuss, just pop in or give us a ring 0118 932 8328 – we’d be delighted to explain further.

You just need to check over the Christmas and New Year period for any variations. See our Opening Hours page for details.
Our units are purpose-built for self-storage and have significant differences from shipping containers. The locks are internalised and are strong five lever locks. There is additional venting and insulation to protect your goods.
No. But our premises are well-lit.
If you know that you’ll be here at the end of the working day, during winter quite a lot, so you might need lighting inside your unit, there are rechargeable work lights on the market, which one or two of our business customers bring in, to use when it’s dark in the early evening.
Of course children are welcome, but you must take great care that an adult is on hand to accompany and supervise them at all times, because every part of the external premises are accessed by cars, we have a number of lorries manoeuvring onsite on a daily basis and there are forklift truck movements, often dealing with bulky or heavy loads.
Children should not use the mobile access platforms.
Absolutely. All customers are welcome to use our customer toilets, make a drink in the customer kitchen where there is complimentary tea, coffee and squash. We also offer guest wifi services inside the office building – see our Customer Facilities page to find out more.
