Part of the SSA UK’s mission is to set the standard for the industry and to promote best practice. To achieve this, operator members are required to meet our Membership Standard to qualify for FULL membership.

Once the standard is reached, a provisional member may apply for an upgrade to Full membership and take advantage of the additional benefits this affords. Further information about our standard and the benefits of Full membership are detailed below.

There is no increase in membership fees for provisional members upgraded to Full status but in addition to the already comprehensive range of benefits for provisional members, Full members also receive; a listing on the SSA UK website Storage Facility Locator, use of the SSA UK Logo on marketing materials, websites and correspondence to demonstrate compliance with the standard, a complimentary Property Week subscription, window stickers to display in each facility and a Full Membership Certificate.

The SSA UK Membership Standard is a recognised standard and covers a number of areas including:

  • Facilities, Units and/or Containers
  • Security
  • Operating Procedures
  • Contracts and Consumer protection
  • Managing Customers
  • Customer's Insurance

Members can access a full copy of the Standard in the members only area of the website.  However, if you are not a member but are interested in details of the Membership Standard or wish to discuss membership, please get in touch by calling 01270 623150 or email Stephen Ramage at [email protected]
