Hogleaze Storage Ltd. has opened a self-storage facility in Granby Industrial Estate, an industrial park in Chickerell, England. The company converted a leased building to 30,000 square feet of storage space. The facility offers units ranging from 25 to 200 square feet and will target local business and residential customers as well as those in neighboring Weymouth, which is a larger municipality.
“We are pleased to be in Weymouth and expect to occupy the storage units quickly, keeping to our core values, efficient service and best pricing,” owner Hugo James told the source.
The Chickerell facility is Hogleaze’s second location. The company has offered vehicle storage on a farm outside of Dorchester, England, since 2000, and added traditional self-storage units in 2003. It has expanded every year to keep up with demand, the source reported.
“I think the Hogleaze Storage business model is an interesting one, and it was essential that they found the right unit at the right price in the right location,” said Mickey Jones, chief executive of DJ Property, which owns the industrial park. “As many people downsize their homes and storage space is at a premium, self-storage with easy access is the way forward.”
Hogleaze offers customers 24-hour access. Its storage facilities are equipped with security features including alarms and closed-circuit television.
