Portable self-storage operator Mobile Mini Inc. has released a storage-container conversion guide through its United Kingdom website. Targeted at small businesses, particularly those operating in creative industries, the guide highlights the office versatility containers offer, according to the source.
“Converted storage containers are an ideal choice for startups, particularly for the creative industries which have a high level of self-employment,” Zoe Brookes, marketing manager, told the source. Creative businesses that may be a good fit for a converted container include those in the arts-and-crafts space as well as small marketing and design agencies, the source reported.
The guide is designed to help business operators determine if a converted container makes sense for their operation as well as to examine container types and design options. It also includes advice on logistics and working with municipal planners, and offers case-study examples of businesses that have used the structures.
“The creative industry is a fast-growing sector, generating more than £8 million an hour for the U.K. economy, so finding a practical solution for housing growing small businesses in this industry is vital,” Brookes said.
Founded in 1983, Mobile Mini is a provider of portable-storage and mobile-office solutions. The company operates more than 130 locations throughout North America. It has operated a network of branch locations in the U.K. for 25 years.
