Focus on shipping container self storage for the construction trade.

Shipping container trades use; an alternative to renting expensive premises.

Self storage is more than just providing furniture storage. Our self storage facilities are also geared up for tradesmen looking for that little bit extra service.

We know how useful it is having inexpensive builders type storage facilities which can be accessed at any time, day or night, seven days a week.

We also understand the needs of contractors ranging from plasterers, builders, Joiners, electricians, plumbers etc that just simple need hassle free inexpensive ‘premises’ or a ‘base’ to function from away from the family home.

We fit such a criteria. Not only are our storage units suitable for such trades use, but all rental costs are 100% tax deductible against your business. With easy monthly rentals which are not subject to complicated commercial leases normally associated with renting commercial premises, more and more trades people are using self storage as a perfect solution for their business.
