In May 2018 the third storage centre in the portfolio was opened in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire.
Our self-storage centres are bright and airy with open-plan reception areas where customers can organise the rental of self storage space as well as buy boxes and packaging materials.
The current management team have significant experience in running self storage centres and have also developed the business to incorporate an archive/records management division.
