Set-a-Side Storage

Set-a-Side Storage was founded in 2000 and has grown to become the leading set storage company in the UK film and TV industry. It currently occupies some 250,000 sq ft of space at its easily accessible site near Oxford.

Set-a-Side offers a complete set storage solution. We collect clients’ sets at the end of productions and store them securely for as long as required. As each set is unloaded we create a detailed inventory which is subsequently sent to the client. When the set is needed again we deliver it back to the studio or location. Alternatively, when sets are no longer required we can dismantle and recycle them in an environmentally friendly way.

Set A Side Storage is a carbon neutral company all the CO2 generated by our vehicles is off-set through the ‘Verified Carbon Standard’ reduction projects.


Set-A-Side is a fantastic storage facility, with its close accessibility to london, they offer what I believe to be a very competitive rate. With excellent staff, always providing a friendly and efficient service, often at very short notice, its my favourite set storage company.
