Hire Guidelines

Delivery Lead Times

We have a usual lead time of 3 working days for a single standard storage container and 5 working days for a single standard accommodation unit from the day an order is received by us. All lead times are subject to availability of stock availability of our transport partners.

Timed Delivery and Collection

Due to factors outside our control (traffic, hold up on sites, etc) we cannot guarantee a timed delivery slot. All units will normally be delivered between 8.00am and 5.00pm. We will do our utmost to meet requests for early/late or am/pm deliveries but cannot guarantee this and additional charges may apply.

Waiting Charges

If a driver has to wait on site to deliver or collect a unit, a waiting charge will be charged after the first 30 minutes. Waiting charges are charged at £65 plus vat, per hour.

Cancellation Charges

Any cancellations made less than 24 hours prior to delivery or collection will incur the full delivery or collection charges.

Non-Delivery or Collection of Units

If we are unable to deliver or collect a unit because of site access or other issues, the full delivery and collection charge will be incurred.

Site Access

Please ensure your site is fully prepared for delivery on a HIAB (craned) or articulated delivery lorry. If you are concerned about site access or ground conditions, please contact us well in advance of delivery or collection so that we can discuss the options with you. Unless we have agreed otherwise, you are responsible for the provision, connection and disconnection of mains services and drainage.

Off Hire and Collection

Please give us at least 2 day’s notice if you would like to off hire the units. We aim to collect within 7 working days of off-hire and will notify you if this is not possible. You remain responsible for the safekeeping of the units until we have collected them.

Minimum Hire charges

All hires are for a minimum initial period of one month.

All Transport will be chargeable on the first invoice (delivery & collection)

Damage Charges

The unit will be checked for damages once it is off hired and we will charge you for any damages incurred during the hire.

Before Collection

Before collection, be sure to remove all of your personal property, dispose of any rubbish and make the unit available in a clean condition, suitable for immediate use by another customer. Failure to do so will result in an additional cleaning charge. Containers should be left unlocked with the padlock and keys placed inside the container.

Airing your Container

Containers left locked for prolonged periods can sometimes be subject to condensation. You can minimize condensation by ensuring that all goods stored are dry, and by regularly opening container doors. Ask us for details of our Absorpoles product, which can help to reduce problems caused by condensation.

Problems with your Unit

We aim to ensure that all our products reach you in good condition. However, if you have any problems during the life of the hire, please contact us immediately so we can promptly remedy and correct any faults.

  • Avatar Sam Gissing ★★★★★ 3 months ago
    You do not expect levels of service like this from a storage container yard, but somehow Jennings have managed to put together a team that constantly exceeds my expectations.
    We operate a small business from the yard and Jennings really
    … More do fill an essential role in our day to day running, taking delivery of our pallets with great communication and always willing to lend a hand. I feel 100% confident in the safe and secure storage of our items.
    The yard is kept very clean and is also on nice little commercial estate with a great cafe and other facilities.
    Before you go to Big Yellow please give Jennings a bell. You'll be happy you did.

  • Avatar Graham C ★★★★★ a year ago
    Absolutely brilliant company to hire from , the containers are 100% watertight,* and clean. (*tested courtesy of monsoon season UK.) NO unsightly dents, flaking paint or hard to open/close doors, good security "Lock box" welded … More on as standard. Quality from top to bottom, the transport and hire charges are extremely attractive.
    The whole process from selection of storage container through to expert delivery is so easy and a very user friendly website.

    Excellent service and facilities, at a very competitive price. The team at Jennings are very friendly and flexible, and it's personalised service rather than the impersonal routine you get at Big Yellow etc. The site, storage units, … More access and security are excellent. Highly recommended.
  • Avatar Paul Schenk ★★★★★ a year ago
    Really responsive, very friendly: they go above and beyond to make sure I had all the assistance I needed during a very stressful, short-notice house move. A great team throughout – ever helpful, always professional. First rate ! Thank … More you !!
  • Avatar Andy Brooks ★★★★★ a year ago
    This is second time I've used Jennings Containers & Storage. The first time was over 3 years ago, but the level of service now is unbelievable. Highly recommend them to everyone, very friendly and helpful. Would recommend them … More over any storage places in Oxfordshire. The level service is amazing, members of staff will accept parcels & unload pallets with their forklift. All the storage containers are brand new. Couldn't fault Adam & his team in anyway.
  • Avatar Andrew Harwood ★★★★★ a year ago
    Really great service. Easy to arrange , great value and same day move in. I enquired on a Sunday morning and I was signed up with the container keys that afternoon. The office is closed on a Sunday, but a member of staff came over and signed … More me up. 10/10 service.
  • Avatar Secretary Thamebowls ★★★★★ a year ago
    Excellent storage space that is both clean and dry, with easy all year round access. The staff were attentive and helpful and the price appears to be very reasonable. Highly recommended!
  • Avatar Zoe O'Connell ★★★★★ a year ago
    I have recently used Jennings Containers and Storage for the second time when moving home. The first time I used them I was getting married abroad 5 days after the move. They helped to make the move stress free so I could focus completely … More on my wedding. They were friendly, professional and really went the extra mile to ensure that moving day went smoothly and our things arrived safely at our new home after our honeymoon. I was so happy with the service and pricing, that I have been keeping a permanent container with them since then – to keep furniture not needed in fully furnished lodgings. But I look forward to seeing them again next month when my belongings come back out of storage and into our next new new house. Five star service!
  • Avatar Tony G ★★★★★ a year ago
    I found the whole process quick and easy, Adam at Jennings Containers was really helpful whilst understanding the needs of our business and the urgency of assistance for a 20ft Container delivered to our business park, I would recommend … More Jennings containers and we will be using them in future.
  • Avatar Peter Alexander ★★★★★ a year ago
    The storage space is great – clean and dry. The access to storage is super easy and customer service is very helpful. Plus the price is very reasonable. Highly recommended!
  • Avatar Simon Wells ★★★★★ a year ago
    Friendly and helpful staff. I have never used this kind of service before.
    The staff took the time to explain and show the available storage containers and services, adhering to the current safety guidelines. Safe environment and good strict

  • Avatar David Murray ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    Excellent service. Needed a place to keep my things for university whilst I travelled back home and needless to say this was a goldmine to find. Really good value for money, great offers on boxes, padlocks and other goods that get delivered … More in no time at all. All arrangements are handled very professionally and details explained thoroughly. Customer service here is commendable as team follows up on everything making you feel reassured of the entire process.

    I used these guys to store a van and contents from a second home for 3 years.
    Throughout that period they were great, always available to help. Even when the offices were closed they were there to support.
    The site is very clean and friendly
    … More and of course very secure!
    Great company.

    We have a business and it requires storage all year round. Great service from the outset. Easy/fast check in with a short, but thorough induction.

    This storage facility has been going up and up in my opinion and now has a good driveway all the way round; it has cameras to see what on all of the time; the staff are very friendly and are helpful in lots of different ways. Adam and his … More staff have the right to be proud of what they have achieved. Well done!
