We all need good and plentiful storage in our lives; whether it's enough wardrobe space to store our clothes or enough kitchen cupboard storage at home, or adequate shelving and filing cabinets for paperwork in the office.

So storage might not seem very exciting but it is essential in all areas of our lives if we, as individuals or businesses, are to be well organized and avoid clutter and chaos.
But there's more to storage than just somewhere to place our possessions and keep them neat and organized, self storage at a secure facility can also provide a whole range of options for protecting more unusual items such as rare hobby collections, wine collections, vintage cars or antique heirlooms. Pretty much anything of value (either sentimental or monetary value) can be safely stored in a self storage unit if we don't have room for it in our home or business premises.
Some of the larger units that might typically be used by those people who are moving house or by businesses as a less expensive alternative to warehousing are actually shipping containers, some of which would have had a previous life on the high seas but many are simply purchased just to provide storage space. These shipping containers themselves can alternatively provide accommodation such as temporary offices and additional facilities for schools or sports centres.
Shipping containers can even be used to build low-cost housing and even architect-designed housing. You can see some of these structures on our website - so the whole idea of storage and storage containers – right from basic cupboards in our kitchens to additional office space and even homes are present in all areas of our lives and work.
