Containerised-Storage-Yorkshire

Benefits of Containerised Storage

The benefits of containerised storage to the customer are that we bring the storage containers to your home and pack your furniture and effects at your property directly inside the storage containers. This gives you the confidence to know that your furniture is in safe hands and has been packed correctly to withstand the period in storage, be it three weeks or three years.

Containerised-Storage

Specialist Storage Facility & Equipment

To enable us to operate a containerised storage facility we have purchased specialised container vehicles which allow us to load and unload containers through the sides of the vehicle and through the rear. To lift these storage containers we used a fork lift truck designed with seven foot long forks that has very high manoeuverability and is capable of lifting with full support heavily and full loaded containers up to 34 feet high.

Boxes-&-Tape-Measure One of the biggest questions we are asked here at Shires is how big a vehicle will be needed for your removal. Well the great news is that we have a fleet that ranges in size and so you can be confident that you are only paying for the right vehicle for your needs.
