Prohibited Items – The Secure-store.
Generally we say that you can store almost everything at The Secure-store. For 99% of people that is true. However there are some items that are not allowed. This is primarily because they are either illegal or dangerous.
The following is a list of ‘what cannot be stored’. Or prohibited items at our Letchworth storage units and our Leighton Buzzard storage warehouse. Generally we say that The Secure-store is ‘the place for space’ and that you can store just about anything and you can. However there are some things we have to regrettably say no to:
- First and most importantly, no goods / possessions of special, sentimental or irreplaceable value, such as heirlooms
- Sorry no aerosols, except inhalers with a volume of 50ml or less. Or butane lighters
and refills, plus compressed gas canisters.
- Alcoholic liquids with alcohol content higher than 70% are a big no.
- You cannot store clinical and medical waste, or infectious substances.
