How Willbox shipping containers revolutionised a site in Leeds

In February 2018, 20 Willbox shipping containers set sail and made their way to Chelsea Close in Leeds to settle in at their new home. Now, just one and a half a years later, they are at the heart of what makes Twenty4 Secure Storage the successful business it is today.

What does success look like for container storage?

The family run business in Leeds, Twenty4 Secure Storage, has recently won the Best Container Self Storage Facility in the UK Self Storage Associations Awards (SSA). The SSA UK is a member of the Federation of European Self Storage Associations (FEDESSA). They aim to create a profile for the industry as well as setting exceptionally high standards. With that, their main goal is to raise awareness of the benefits of self storage and promote best practice in the industry. That's where the annual awards ceremony comes into play as it recognises organisations for their hard work.

Why is container storage a great option?

Paired with a good location for accessibility, a secure site for dependability and excellent customer service, shipping containers make for a great storage solution. They're tough, they're secure, and they are easier to access than indoor self storage. Plus, anyone can use them. No matter your need, you can store almost anything from business tools to a sofa to a car - shipping containers come in a variety of sizes, and can be transformed into different types of units. Let's look at these details in more depth...


This is a vital aspect when considering storage options. It's no good letting your business tools clog up needed space in your house but it's also no good having to travel miles every day to get to them. Twenty4 Secure Storage is just a 5-10 minute drive to Leeds city centre and with easy access to motorway networks it is accessible for anyone in the Leeds and wider West Yorkshire area.


The UK is no stranger to torrential rain, mighty thunderstorms and the odd heat wave but each Willbox container has battled through it all in a fight to keep their internal environment safe.So, why is a container so good at withstanding external dangers? They were originally designed for the transportation of large goods across harsh seas. They are built to be weather-proof, dust-proof and rodent-proof. In addition, Willbox's new (one-way) containers are premium-grade, with 10% extra weight and strength, dark wood flooring, and extra ventilation. Now, they have revolutionised the storage industry and thousands of people choose to store their belongings in shipping containers with peace of mind that their belongings are secure.Plus, sites like Twenty4 Secure Storage have 24 hour CCTV and a manned site 24/7 which gives you extra peace of mind.

Customer service

Not everyone knows what self storage actually is or what the right option is for them, but with the right customer service you can be sure to receive the best advice. Twenty4 Secure are experts in self storage and as such we offer a good selection of quality boxes as well as other protective and packing materials onsite. Just ask our friendly staff and they will be able to pick the best materials to keep your items looking like new.


Forget trolleys, lifts and corridors, at Twenty4 Secure Storage you can drive right up to your personal walk-in storage unit and offload your belongings directly from your car boot. This is great if you have a lot of things to move, or if you're storing large items such as furniture. And you can do this 24/7, all year round.

Container self storage is for everyone

There are many reasons people need self storage, and Twenty4 Secure can cater for them all. Our standard sized shipping containers have been transformed to create different sized units for differing storage needs, from small lockers to 300 sq ft units.You might be relocating temporarily or downsizing, and looking to store some of your personal effects. You might be a business in need of space for archiving or storing stock. Maybe you're redecorating and want your home empty while you work. It's easy to change to a smaller or larger unit whenever your requirements change, and with flexible rentals you can store for as long as you need.
