Winners have been announced in the inaugural Storage.co.uk Awards for Excellence. Designed to celebrate and promote good practice in the self-storage industry in the United Kingdom, the Award’s organizers received large numbers of nominations for a total of 10 categories. Judges considered all 1,200 storage facilities in the United Kingdom, choosing five winners in each category.
“Self-storage is quickly becoming a major industry in the United Kingdom, in which it’s increasingly hard for companies to stand out,” said Angus Hanton of Storage.co.uk. “These awards should inform customers which storage firms are really going that extra mile to provide them with the best service.”
Winners included Safehouse Self Storage in the Innovation category, for running its own café on site, as well as Attic Self Storage, which picked up an Environmental Awareness Award for deriving more than a third of its energy from renewable sources. Robertsbridge Container Storage in East Sussex won a Promotional Film Award. The company’s film, featured on its website, was made to a high standard and gives a positive impression of the business.
Other categories include website design, storage facility design and social-media integration. A list of the 50 winners can be found at www.storage.co.uk/excellence-in-self-storage-awards.
