As we prepare to open The Storage Works offering self storage in Blackburn over the coming weeks, we wanted to give you a little insight into the ‘other side’ of self storage, looking specifically at what goes on behind the scenes in order to transform an empty unit into a place where both businesses and individuals can store goods and belongings. It’s a side of the business most of our customers would never even begin to think about, at the end of the day, why would you need to, but something which we wanted to share and give our own input on!
In just a few short months, we’ve taken an empty unit and transformed it into a dedicated self storage and office unit. Please note, the above images aren’t of our unit (it’s not quite ready) but as soon as we have some, you’ll be the first to see them! The process? From an empty shell, we took the unit and planned the space…what will be office space and what will be storage space. Working alongside professional architects and planners makes this task a little easier, however there’s still plenty of decisions to be made! We’ve since been made aware of this great guide by Acorn Warehouse Solutions titled, “7 Key Questions to Ask Before Planning Your Warehouse Layout” which should be the perfect starting point for anyone considering a task similar to what we’ve undergone! Whilst it’s technically not on the subject of a storage warehouse, many of the principles and considerations are the same and get you thinking along the right lines.
Quite simply; we can’t wait to open our doors to our customers over the coming weeks and both storage units and office space are booking up quickly. Covering Blackburn, Great Harwood and the surrounding areas, we offer a competitively priced, accessible and value-added solution for those needing either domestic or business storage or office units and welcome you to give us a call on 01254 433540 to discuss your needs and requirements with our team and book your unit!
