Established over 75 years ago, Kelly's was the first company in the UK to offer convenient Mobile Self Storage solutions to customers. Still in the family, the company now holds 7 facilities across the UK and delivers storage pods direct to the door of more UK households than ever before.
Not content with pioneering the Self Storage industry, Kelly's also launched Kelly's Document & Data Management which specialises in bespoke document and data storage for businesses, and Kelly's Charity Events - a unique charitable initiative to support and organise fund-raising events across the UK. Set up by the Directors in 2010, Kelly's Fun-Raisers (now named Kelly's Charity Events) invests time and money into sponsored sporting events and has raised well over £180,000 so far!

As a family business, our focus is on providing exceptional customer service - so we're proud to say our Customer Service Team are helpful and efficient, and receive consistently excellent feedback. And, with direct lines, it's likely you'll speak to the same person every time you call, meaning you'll receive a unique and personal service from beginning to end.
The same also goes for the road - our drivers are experienced and knowledgeable, and will text and email you prior to and on the day of your booking with their name, number and time of arrival - so you're not left in the dark.
And, to keep things simple, we tell you about all the costs upfront - there are no hidden extras, no deposits, and no need to buy a padlock. In fact, we won't charge you anything until we've actually stored your goods and, even then, you only pay for the days you actually use.

Director of Kelly's, Paul Martin, said; "As a family business, we believe that creating a great place to work will continue to inspire our employees in our mission to provide exceptional customer experience.

As a company convinced that a fantastic culture within the workplace makes for a fantastic customer experience in the long run, Paul annouced the launch of the Kelly's #FunFund.
Each month, a team of 4 Kelly's staff will be given £400 from the FunFund pot - to do something fun for the company. This could be anything from cooking spag bol in the Green Room, to sumo wrestling in the Yard! Along with their super FunFund idea, the team will also have the chance to come up with ideas on how to improve something about Kelly's - from improving our customer service, to making our processes more efficient - or even something as simple as more flowers in the office!
We're confident this is a great way of continuing to improve our services - and have some fun in the process! To keep track of these events, we've also launched a blog, which you can follow here: www.kellystore.co.uk/discussion/blog
