As part of our efforts to simplify self storage, we also offer Free Self Drive Van Use for all of our customers when moving into or out of our storage facilities in Chorley and Leyland.

We insure the van, and all we ask is that you top up any diesel which you have used.

Our van is a medium length, medium roof height Renault Master. The internal load dimension’s are listed below:
Length: 3.12m
Width: 1.70m
Height: 1.93m


  • UK driving licence held for a minimum of 2 years.
  • A maximum of 6 points on the license.
  • Aged over 25.
  • An additional form of ID showing current address.
  • £100 cash security deposit.

In 2015, the DVLA changed how driving licenses are managed, and introduced an online system for license checks. This resulted in the paper part of a driving license becoming redundant.

Due to this change, you will need to visit the DVLA website ( and follow the steps to generate a Check Code for your license. You will then need to bring this Check Code with you on the day, which will allow us to check your license. Without this code you will be unable to take the van.
