UK Moving Company Burke Bros. Adds Self-Storage Units in Wolverhampton, England

Update 6/17/15 – Burke Bros. Moving Group has completed the addition of self-storage units to its headquarters. The new wing officially opened during a recent ribbon-cutting ceremony that included participation from Wolverhampton Mayor Ian Brookfield. The project added 94 traditional storage units to the company’s mix of storage services.

“Initial interest has been very positive,” Gary Burke told the source. “Since word got out, we’ve already received inquiries from local businesses, public-sector organizations, private individuals and students, all looking to store a whole range of items from archive files, office equipment, products, studio flat contents, to household effects.”

The project included new roofing and signage, and natural light has been incorporated into the warehouse. Bottom-floor offices were remodeled, and a corridor was added from the main reception area to the storage units. Self-storage is available on two floors, according to the source.

“I’m always greatly encouraged to see noteworthy local investment and new city facilities that will serve many of our citizens and business owners, especially when it’s being made by a flourishing and expanding family-run firm who are right here in the city,” Brookfield told the source.

4/20/15 – Burke Bros. Moving Group is adding traditional self-storage units to a portion of its headquarters on Fox’s Lane in Wolverhampton, England.

“This is a very exciting time in the expansion of our business because for many years, we have provided the only containerized storage in Wolverhampton, plus free-standing storage and archive storage,” said Gary Burke, managing director. “But now we are bolting on self-access storage to meet all individual and business needs.”

The storage building is expected to open in June and will offer spaces from 10 square feet up to 120 square feet. Customers will have access to large loading bays, dollies, fork lifts and pallet trucks, Chris Burke, director, told the source. “The customers will be given the keys to their own dedicated rooms, and they’ll have easy access,” he said.

A large portion of the moving company’s investment will be spent on security including access gates, closed-circuit television and perimeter fencing, the source reported.

Burke Bros. is a family-owned business that specializes in moving services in the United Kingdom and abroad. It has offered storage services for more than 30 years.
