Smart Storage, which operates six self-storage facilities in Northwest England, will complete a £3 million expansion next month of its property in Altrincham, a town in Trafford, England. The 25,000-square-foot addition will double the amount of rentable space at 31 Craven Road, the company’s flagship location, according to a press release. Once complete, the property will contain more than 45,000 square feet of storage space in 450 units. It’ll also include 20 office spaces and three trade counters for personal and business use.
“We’re really excited to open the extension to our store in Altrincham. It’s going to provide a much-needed boost to the lettable space we have. Our main aim is to provide high-quality, competitively priced self-storage services to both domestic and commercial users,” said CEO Mike Wilson.
Smart Storage is seeking to capitalize on the increased demand for self-storage in the country. “We have seen a huge upturn in demand for self-storage over the past 12 months in the U.K.,” Wilson said. “A lot of our customers have been using our storage facilities for over two years now, and there is more emphasis on long-term storage solutions. The new units are perfect for both domestic and commercial use, as we can offer a wide range of small and large units.”
Smart Storage was founded in 2004. In addition to traditional storage, its properties provide rentable office space for businesses.
