Burke Bros Self Storage set to be City of Wolverhampton's focal point for self-access storage.

Having been granted one of the largest £50,000 Green Shoots Funded projects, Wolverhampton’s award winning international removals firm, Burke Bros (http://www.burkebros.co.uk) in Fox’s Lane have just given the greenlight to begin transforming part of their former open space containerised storage facilities, at Burke Bros Trading Estate, in to modern and purpose built self-access storage rooms.

With an overall investment of £166,000, the facility will be split level and constructed over 2 floors with secure and well lit self-storage rooms, available from late June 2015.

Burke Bros bosses have been working with the planners, designers and contractors in preparation for the start of this big refurbishment, where work begins end of April 2015.

Accredited by the leading industry authorities and having successfully moved thousands of families and businesses around the UK and internationally, Burke Bros Moving Group have been storing customers’ personal belonging, household goods, business archives and office furniture for more than 33 years, so adding these new easy access self-store facilities is an exciting business expansion and a great example of the benefits the Green Shoots Fund has brought to the development of the city’s infrastructure, especially as the demand for storage units, where customers can come and go as they please, is definitely on the up.

Just a 5 minute walk from the Molineux stadium, Burke Bros Self Storage is set to become the city centre’s focal point for self-access storage for both personal and business use.

As one of the largest family owned and operated employers in the area, they’ll be increasing their headcount too, creating new jobs to handle the increased demand and capacity.

Managing Director, Gary Burke, said: “This is a very exciting time in the expansion of our business, because for many years we have provided the only containerised storage in Wolverhampton, plus free standing storage and archive storage, but now we are bolting on self-access storage to meet all individual and business needs.”

Company Director, Chris Burke, said: “The new facilities will have free car parking spaces, large loading bays, trolleys, pallet trucks and fork lifts, all available to make moving items in really easy. The secure rooms will be located off wide bright corridors with room sizes ranging from large lockers at 10 sq/ft to rooms of 50 or 120 sq/ft at a time. The customers will be given the keys to their own dedicated rooms and they’ll have easy access.”

Another big part of the investment is the strengthened security measures with 24 hour security, 24 hour CCTV monitoring, strong perimeter fencing and secure gates.

Gary said: “Customers, domestic or business related, will be able to store from 7 days up to as long as they like. Our fully manned reception will offer advice and guidance and take care of all the customers’ needs, including accepting deliveries on customers’ behalf, plus enable customers to purchase all the packing materials they’ll ever need, as we already carry a comprehensive stock of packing items for our removals services.”

Chris added: “Since we already have an existing fleet of removals vans, large and small, and an experienced and professional team of removers and packing specialists, the customer can also arrange to use these services to easily move all their items from their location to ours.”

The space will be ideal for anything from office equipment, archive files, sports equipment, studio flat content and up to 2, 3 and 4 bedroom house contents, enabling the residents and businesses of Wolverhampton to store items between their house or office moves, to declutter their offices, spare rooms, garages, and even their garden shed, holding their personal or business effects in a brightly lit, safe, secure, clean, dry environment away from their home or offices.

If you’ve ever considered looking into taking a self-storage room and would like to reserve a space, or would like to see the facilities, call 01902 714555 or email sales@burkebros.co.uk. For more information on Burke Bros please visit http://www.burkebros.co.uk.
