Thanks to its innovative expertise and customer-oriented approach, Shurgard has attracted over 1,000,000 customers to 221 self storage stores in 7 countries in the European Union: Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden and the United Kingdom.
Founded in 1970 in the American state of Washington, Shurgard provides individuals and businesses with extra space in mini-warehouses to store their excess belongings or their long forgotten documents. In 1994 Shurgard began to expand into Europe and in 1995 the first European store was opened in Brussels. The first UK store was opened in Croydon, South London, in November 1999. Since August 2006 Shurgard collaborates with Public Storage, the world’s largest owner and operator of self-storage facilities with over one million customers and more than 2,400 stores.
All Shurgard stores are staffed with customer-focused professionals dedicated to providing superior customer service. Shurgard’s core values - service, security, reliability, convenience, cleanliness - are prized by European customers as much as their American counterparts. The success in Europe is testament to their ability to offer these values in the service they provide.
