Q) Are they secure ?

A) Silly question really - most sites are gated compounds with security fencing and more. Shipping containers have their own steel 'lock boxes' protecting the main security padlock, and you can fit as many padlocks as you require. They are constructed from heavy duty steel designed to have a working life across the seas in salt water conditions.

A) YES unless stated


Q) Does external storage suffer from damp ?

A) No - We've been in the business for many years - we've never had an issue, ever. All units are correctly ventilated where necessary and even more so when it comes to shipping containers, which are sealed and were designed to handle even perishable cargo across the seas in salt water environments. All our garages have damp proofing and correct damp proof courses. 


  Q) Why are you so cheap ?

A) We own and operate all our own sites ie. we don't rent the land the storage sits on meaning we can be very competitive.  All our sites are kept clean and tidy. We represent fantastic value for money.
