Storebox Self Storage - Retford
With over 2,000 Shipping Containers across 15 locations, Storebox Self Storage are rapidly growing to become one of the UK’s largest self storage operators.
Following continuous expansion, Storebox Self Storage needed sixty-two 20ft New (One Trip) Shipping Containers to open their new site in Retford. Within the next 12 months the site will hold 115 total units with plans to add Topper units when the facility reaches full capacity.
Storebox have nailed the recipe for success when it comes to advertising with Retford looking like a high-end car dealership with premium flagpole banners, fence signage and even 8ft New (One Trip) Shipping Container featuring its logo in 3D on the side. All these elements play a key role in its roadside presence that alerts potential customers to its location and self storage services.
Retford and their new indoor storage facility in Bolton are the first locations to implement a new to colour-coded unit and site map system. With four main colours clearly signposted, their vast sites are being equally divided making it easier for their customers to find their storage unit.
With the customer journey at the core of all our decisions, we've developed a colour-coded system at our new sites. By offering this segmentation alongside a standard numbering system, any new customer can narrow down their unit quicker and easier.
