Storage Space

Our short-term let capacity is currently fully committed.  We will update this page as temporary clients vacate and space becomes available.

The recently constructed building meets all the requirements of the standard, PD 5454:2012 with regard to environment controls, security, fire and flood protection.  Environment and Security Statements can be provided.

The metal racking is mobile with some static units.  It stands to a height of 2750mm with an average loading of 70 Kg.  Shelves are 900mm in length and height-adjustable allowing storage of a variety of items.  Shelf depths are 300mm, 450mm and 900mm.

Storage Charges

The costs are calculated per shelf (up to 1 linear metre) at £7.50 a year.

A standard bay has 7 shelves.  Adjustment is allowed but a minimum charge of £52.50 per bay applies.  If a bay holds more than 7 shelves the charge is calculated per shelf.

These figures assume a rental period of 1 year and are exclusive of VAT.
