find out more...

A single box is capacious and strong enough to hold all the knick knacks, bits and pieces and stuff required for student life.

How big is a GorillaBox?

A GorillaBox measures a metre wide by 1.2 metres long and 1.2 metre high.

This means that one single box is perfectly proportioned to accommodate all the stuff from uni life that you don’t need to drag home between terms.

Will I need a second GorillaBox?

Just so we’re clear, a GorillaBox is one SERIOUSLY big box.

Big enough in fact to hold 13,458 bananas!!

If however, you have an unusually copious amount of student essentials, when the team come to collect, they can extend your box for no extra cost or will have a second box available which can be stored for £6 per week.

…but we doubt you’ll need it. Check out our video.

Do I need to label my items?

You won’t need to label your items individually as they will never leave your GorillaBox. The box itself, we will label for you

Do I need to buy additional insurance?

Traditionally, storage companies insist that you take their insurance when you use their storage. We don't like sneaky add-on costs and would guess you don't either.

So... we insure your goods for up to £100 for free.

Storing some fancy stuff?? Further cover is available from £1.50 per £1000 of additional cover, per week. We keep you items in a secure, manned facility with 24-hour security but it’s your call.

Will my items be stored securely?

Absolutely! We use purpose made facilities with 24-hour security.

Does my collection and delivery address have to be the same?

Not at all. In fact, we can deliver your GorillaBox anywhere in the world. If delivery is to the same postcode area (eg. SO19 to SO30) as the collection, delivery is completely free.

Alternatively, your GorillaBox can be delivered anywhere in mainland UK for £125.

Or worldwide - 

Beijing, China from £200
Nicosia, Cyprus from £220
Paris, France from £190
New Delhi, India from £380
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia from £350

Just email us to confirm a price for international shipments

Do I have to box and package my items?

Nope. Everything can be packed into you GorillaBox as it is.

Just pile your books, shoes, clothes, DVD’s and electronics into the box and it’s ready to go.

However, we would recommend protecting any particularly fragile items such as glasses, vases, plates or TV’s by boxing or bubble wrapping first.

If you’d prefer to box up your bits and pieces, we understand and can provide you with packing materials that are made to make the best of the space.

Can I change my collection or delivery time and/or address?

Absolutely, just drop us an email at info@gorillaboxuk.com and we can make changes for you.

Can I come and pick up some of my stuff?

One of the reasons that we are able to offer a revolutionary level of value to our customers for their personal storage is because we make sure you don’t have to pay for a big shiny customer facing reception on our storage facilities nor the cost of the staffing them.

The storage revolution starts with GorillaBox but it will not be televised …or on a high street near you.

I’ve packed my passport/lipstick/favourite jeans by mistake, is it possible to have an item returned?

We’re not able to return individual items but we can return your GorillaBox to you in its entirety, then collect again when you’re done. The cost for an impromptu return and subsequent collection is £29.99.

Can my GorillaBox be delivered to my room?

Your GorillaBox will be delivered in a trailer, which can be positioned close to your house, apartment or halls. Unfortunately, due to the sheer size of a GorillaBox, it's not possible to get them in and out of doors.

Is there anything that I’m not able to store?

  • Food or perishable goods.
  • Living Creatures
  • Explosives or weapons, illegal substances or goods
  • Any flammable or combustible substances
  • Any radioactive, toxic or hazardous items or materials
