BRAND NEW CLEAN, MODERN & WATERTIGHT SHIPPING CONTAINERS PROVIDE THE PERFECT STORAGE SOLUTION
William Boughey, Director of WJB Self Storage, chose Boxtor to supply 36 brand new shipping containers of varying sizes for his new self-storage site in Stockbridge, Hampshire. WJB’s new site is ideally located only a stones throw away from Winchester, providing drive up, lockable storage containers for short & long term hire. We met William at his farm for a site visit in Stockbridge to fully understand his expectations from the outset and help plan the layout of his new site. The task was to ensure we fitted as many 20ft 1 trip containers on the space William had available to use. Due to the site being located so closely to the A34, and the not too distant Port of Southampton, it allowed us to deliver up to 16 containers per day to keep transport costs down as much as possible.
WJB’s mission was simple: to provide the smartest, cleanest and most secure storage containers in the Hampshire area. We share Williams vision, and want to help provide only the highest standard of product available on the market today.
All our new one trip shipping containers are built to the highest industry standards. With 14 air vents for maximum air flow, 3 bar ‘easy opening’ doors and PU coated flooring, our storage containers provide a first class storage solution. WJB’s branding is dark green in colour, so we supplied the site with 1 trip RAL 6007 (olive green) painted containers to ensure everything remained in alignment with his company branding and keep the site looking really smart. Our nearby Southampton depot ensured the containers were all cleaned internally and externally prior to being released.
So far, we have delivered 32 x 20ft storage containers for outdoor storage and several mini 8ft and 10ft units for his indoor storage facility located within a farmyard barn in Hampshire. All the containers were delivered on HIAB lorries and positioned perfectly on site.
William Boughey, Director of WJB provided us with some great feedback: “Boxtor supply my business (WJB Self Storage) with containers, I have purchased multiple new 20ft, 10ft & 8ft containers that are always in outstanding condition. Dominic and his team continue to provide WJB with a very high standard product. With excellent customer service and communication throughout the ordering process, Boxtor are a true pleasure to do business with. I will be back for more containers in the near future!”
WJB ordered 2 x 8’ and 2 x 10’ units for indoor storage within one of their farmyard barns. These are called 20ft Mini sets when transported. These are shipped over from China in what is known as ‘Russian doll’ style configuration. Shipped empty, they arrive in the UK having handled NO cargo as the 10ft units house the 8ft units within them (see photo below).
Drive up self storage is becoming increasingly popular and offers an ideal storage solution for those who are wanting ease of access to their goods.
