5 COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT CONTAINER-BASED STORAGE

Spacewise containers are manufactured according to strict standards and are perfect for a variety of roles. Below are some frequently asked questions:

IS CONTAINER STORAGE WORSE THAN TRADITIONAL WAREHOUSES?

Metal containers can be used in a variety of roles and we think they perform just as well as traditional storage space. Your goods can be kept dry and protected from theft or infestation. Containers also offer a range of unique advantages, for example ease of maintenance, cost effectiveness, onsite convenience and mobility.

ARE CONTAINERS EXPENSIVE?

Actually, containers are one of the most affordable forms of storage available and can save you large sums of money when deployed in the right way. Since they are manufactured in different sizes, containers can be stacked to provide precisely the amount of space you need – no less, no more. Compared to alternative storage options, containers are budget-friendly, which is why they are extensively used by both large and small businesses.

WHAT GOODS CAN BE STORED IN CONTAINERS?

A wide variety of different goods can be kept in our containers. Standard shipping containers are frequently used to store: furniture, vehicles, equipment, machinery and clothing.

Other products including meat, dairy, seafood, vegetables and sophisticated machinery often require controlled temperature and humidity, so we would recommend they are stored in our refrigerated container units

WHICH SIZES OF CONTAINERS ARE AVAILABLE?

A great advantage of containerised storage is the standardised range of unit sizes. All containers offered by top suppliers like Spacewise are of the same width (8ft) and height (8ft 6 inches), enabling easy transportation and allowing them to be stacked on top of each other. Our units range in length from 10ft to 40 ft, so the largest containers have four times greater volume than the smallest ones. Internal dimensions are just a few feet smaller, and most of the volume can be effectively utilised with proper planning and use of pallets.

CAN I RENT A CONTAINER FOR A COUPLE OF MONTHS?

Containers of all sizes are available for both short-term and long-term hire at very attractive prices, making them ideal for seasonal businesses or moving house. Our containers can be delivered to almost anywhere the UK, usually within a fast timeframe, and we can arrange for them to be returned after the contract period ends.

Our business offers customers the ability to gain access to space they need quickly and at a cost effective price.

Coca-Cola Enterprises  have developed a strong relationship with Spacewise during the London 2012 Olympic & Paralympic Games. The Spacewise  team have worked effectively with CCE providing support to deliver on time solutions for this high profile logistical operation, contributing to a successful Games time operation for our business.

I wish to say Spacewise (Sharon) response time is superb (even whilst she is on holiday!) and time between my enquiry and quote provided is remarkably quick.

Equipment delivery is good quality and clean. Commissioning (usually next day unless otherwise organised) is complete by suitably qualified engineers and an ‘operating’ explanation given to the end user.

In addition their after-sales support is very good, tech. offering advice and engineer if deemed appropriate.

We contacted Spacewise to supply us with 2 refrigeration storage units on behalf of the client and their bar supplier as a long hire during the peak season. We haven’t experienced a single problem with them and we have found the team to be helpful and reliable at all times, particularly Sharon Rimell whom we have been liaising with. Happy bar company, happy client! They come highly recommended.
