You might think that working for a storage facility doesn’t involve a great deal of customer interaction. However, here at Urban Locker you’ll be pleasantly surprised. It’s a hub for business, full of friendly chatter and like minded business minds enjoying a socially distanced coffee!

That’s because storage in the UK is a rapidly growing entity, offering more than just an empty, lockable space ready for boxes of ageing paperwork. At Urban Locker you’ll find entrepreneurs using their spaces as workshops, photo studios and so much more.

What helps Urban Locker stand out is our commitment to the local area and to helping local businesses grow. The staff are regular networkers, involved with the local community and understand the challenges facing businesses today. The Urban team, are always on hand to help with all your storage needs, so whether you are starting your business venture or expanding and need to think big – think Urban Locker.

Drew our Store Manager and his team, Joanne and Elise are on hand to accept deliveries and greet visitors and help provide a face to your brand.

Together they help new businesses get set up in their storage facility, whether it’s a day-access unit or one of the 150ft² units. Our team can help organise Wi-Fi, lighting and power, and provide quotes personalised for your business type. Their in-house removals team can even be on hand to transport heavier items.

The versatility, and lower costs of using Urban Locker for business, rather than inner city properties with full business rates, appeals to a number of industries. At Urban alone there are already plenty of different business types with different needs:

  • Long term secure storage with occasional access, archiving paperwork and customer information, perfect for accountants and lawyers
  • Regular access to store equipment and large items of stock or samples, great for retailers, architects, carpet fitters and so on
  • Charities, storing donated furniture and clothing until needed
  • Daily access, from motorbike workshops to online retailers

With more enquiries coming in every week for space to turn into yoga studios or for artists looking for rooms to work, the versatility of the storage industry just keeps on growing. The team are ready to take on any challenge, with expansion plans already underway to offer even more storage for local businesses.

If you’re local and looking for space to grow your business, get in touch with Urban Locker today! You’ll be surprised at how versatile an empty space can be.
