Each MSU (Mobile Storage Unit) is made of timber and supplied by the industry's leading manufacturer. These are placed into our bespoke trailers by forklift and then delivered to you.
No, not at all, the advantage of this storage solution is that you only have to load it once and then your work is done until you want your storage returned. Once you have finished packing the MSU, we secure the door shut and then take it back to our secure storage facilities. It is then forklifted out of trailer and carefully stored into the warehouse.
Access can only be given between the hours of 9.00am to 4.00pm Monday to Friday. We also require a minimum of 24 hours notice so that we can get your MSU ready for you in our access bay. You can access as many times as you like during these times.

Our delivery and collection is very competitive, especially when you compare it to removal costs or Man & Van hire charges. If you are not considering a removal company, then the other main advantage is that you are only doing 50% of the work, you load on site without the need for secondary handling.
