Benefits of container storage

Why on earth would you store your precious stuff in a steel shipping container instead of a warehouse or crates?

Let’s start with cost. Taking a Space Program self-storage unit is going to cost you less than hiring crates or renting space in a warehouse. And with the Space Program, all our self-storage prices include insurance. This isn’t the case with most self-storage providers.

Then there’s convenience. Our containers are all at ground level and you can park right outside. So you can just load up, drive to your container, open the doors and start unloading. And if you use your container to store tools or stock, it works as well the other way. All you need to do is drive up, load up, and off you.

With a Space Program container, there’s no wrestling with trolleys, waiting for lifts, or trying to remember which crate you put that item in. You know, the item you need right now.

Plus if you need to access your container outside working hours, the Space Program team make it easy. You’ll get your own access code so you come and go whenever suits you, 24/7. So if you forget something, you don’t have to fit in around someone else’s opening hours.

Worried about security? No need. Your self-storage container is fitted with a high security lock shrouded within a steel box so it can’t be tampered with. Our compound is secured at night and covered by CCTV. For peace of mind, you hold the keys so that you have full control over who has access to your unit.

We’ve been looking after people’s possessions since 2002 and are extremely proud of our 100% security record.

And if you’re concerned about damp or condensation, don’t be. They are no more an issue with a container than they are with warehouse storage. As long as you take nothing damp in, all your stuff will stay bone dry for as long as you keep it there. There’s more about condensation and damp here

And finally, there’s so much flexibility with containers. They come in a variety of sizes and can be put to a wide range of uses, whether that’s for your own stuff or for your business. Plus our minimum hire period is two weeks, so if you only need a bit of extra space for a short time, we’re here to help.
