Case Study: Gammers

Shipping containers are proving ideal for self-store facility

Self Storage & Removals

A Stowmarket company looking to expand its portfolio with the addition of industrial units for self-storage has turned to Portable Space for help.

Gammers, which has a range of different businesses including a garage and property, decided to use some spare land to offer accessible self-storage solutions for use by local companies and individuals.

It ordered 16 shipping containers from Portable Space – a range of 20’, 10’ and 8’ dark green units – with specially-designed easy-opening handles. These were delivered by the company’s own transport fleet and are now installed and proving popular with customers.

Bruce Gammer, Managing Director says: “With space available, self-store seemed a good extension of our existing business interests. Portable Space is a local company to us and the team is friendly and knowledgeable, so I was happy to work with them. “They also provide a personal service and came along to do a site visit to help us make the most of the space we had available. In order to market the service, we created a promotional car with all our details which has proved very successful. Already the units are filling up and I can see that we could be ordering more in the near future.

“One of the great benefits of the units is their easy- opening handles which mean that anyone can operate them.”
