Case Study: Self Stores

Revolutionising Self-Storage with Innovative Design

Self Storage & Removals

In the realm of self-storage solutions, one company dared to think outside the box – quite literally… As we embarked on a transformative journey with a client seeking a storage facility that transcended convention, what emerged was not just a facility, but a testament to creativity, functionality, and customer satisfaction.


The client’s mandate was clear: to design a self-storage site that could accommodate diverse storage needs while prioritising accessibility, security, and aesthetics. Undaunted, we embraced the challenge, collaborating closely with the customer to discern their unique requirements and design aspirations.

Innovative Solutions

After careful consideration, we proposed a slightly more unconventional yet practical solution – shipping containers. Renowned for their resilience, cost-effectiveness, and adaptability, these containers offered an all-round solution for their intended purpose. Our specialist team created a layout of the facility ensuring seamless access and maximum security for each container. We also used our own fleet of Hiab lorries to transport all 36 containers to the site, ensuring delivery and set-up was implemented professionally and seamlessly.

Success Story

Today, the client’s self-storage facility is thriving with a surge in business and healthy waiting list. The uniformity and distinctive dark green hue of the 20ft containers lends an air of sophistication, effortlessly blending with the natural surroundings. During a recent visit, we were fortunate to see some customers loading their containers with cherished possessions. One customer, who previously played in a band, was carefully storing his special musical instruments. Although he doesn’t get to play as often as he used to, it’s clear that his love for music and his instruments hasn’t faded. It’s wonderful to see how our self-storage facility is helping people preserve their treasures in a safe and secure environment.
