The Big Yellow Storage Hunt: WIN 3 months of FREE storage + a FREE cab!



This June, minicabit has teamed up with our friends at Big Yellow Self Storage to not only give you £5 off any cab booking*, but also have a chance to win 3 months’ free storage  at any of their network of 83 stores and a free cab ride there & back upto £50 !


Big Yellow Self Storage is the UK’s favourite self storage company. Maybe you’ve just had a baby and your spare room is no longer spare or you need space for-decorating or are a student needing storage over the summer months. Whatever the reason, you can get some space in Big Yellow’s clean, dry, secure rooms for as little as 7 days or as long as you need.  Using minicabit to take your stuff to or from a Big Yellow centre means:

  • You can easily transport common household items, not just boxes, via cabs using our handy luggage selector
  • You can take your items to and/or from a Big Yellow centre at a time that suits you, from anywhere in the UK.


To get £5 off any cab ride* or to be one of our lucky winners where each week we will be giving away a free week of free storage + a free cab ride, all you need to do is :


1. If you don’t have it already, download the minicabit app here:  iPhone  Android

2. Open the app and enter ’Big Yellow Storage Hunt‘ in the ‘From’  field

3. The homescreen image of the app will change and reveal a secret code (hint: it’s a household item you can take via minicabit)

4. Come back to this blog page and on the form below, enter the secret code currently shown in the app, as well as your name and email address. The code will change at the end of June 7th, 14th and 21st so you need to enter the current code before then. For three weeks, we will then choose a random winner the following day, on June 8th, 15th and 24th 2015.
