3000 Containers on Hire!

Self-storage is a rapidly growing industry in the UK – today there are over 1500 sites operating across the country. Containerised self storage facilities, like those at Secured Storage, are often set up outdoors to allow customers to drive right up to the doors of their unit. This makes it easy to load and unload bulky items.

Shipping containers are ideal for this type of use as they are weatherproof, tough, inexpensive and easy to relocate. This makes them a popular choice for companies getting started in self-storage, as well as landowners looking for additional storage capacity.

Secured Storage have been working with Willbox since the beginning of the year as they expand their site. Currently they have over 500 containers on long-term hire.

Chris Williams, director at Willbox, said: “We're really proud to have achieved this latest milestone.“Businesses and individuals are increasingly realising how useful and versatile containers can be. We are committed to becoming the first name in containers across the country. We're looking forward to reaching our next milestone before long!”Willbox works with a range of self-storage companies around the UK. In addition to supplying containers we offer consultancy services including site surveys and market research.
