Loft Self Storage successfully launch business in Hucknall

Loft Self Storage recently announced the opening of their new family-owned self storage facility in Portland Road, Hucknall.

Phase 1 of the Hucknall project is now complete, meaning that they’ve expanded from container storage at their current Bestwood Village site to opening indoor storage units to the general public and businesses. And after just 10 weeks of opening, Loft Self Storage has reached 50% occupancy of their self storage units, with lots of interest in self storage services from across the local area.

The recent transformation of the car showroom, garage, and petrol station into the state-of-the-art facility has been a worthwhile challenge. With the support of their sister company, Shredall SDS Group, Loft Self Storage have helped bring new jobs and business to the local area.

Phase 2 will see more indoor units and containers made available in the coming months, along with outside ‘storage pods’ which are similar to self storage containers.

Co-founder of Loft Self Storage, Nick Williams, commented: “We’re so proud of everyone that’s been a part of the launch and growth of Loft Self Storage. We’ve helped to create a much needed self store for the local community, bringing an old site back to life. After just 10 weeks, it’s already been an extremely exciting venture”

Lucy Shipley, Loft Self Storage co-founder and sister to Nick Williams comments: “We feel we have made our brand different from anything else out there, we wanted to make Loft colourful, fun, welcoming and family friendly. We hope our customers like what we have set out to achieve.”

Loft’s sister company, Shredall SDS Group celebrates 27 years in business this month. Over the last year the Group is going from strength to strength with a record year for growth for their document shredding, storage, indexing and document scanning services, seeing nationwide growth.

With businesses storing millions of documents and media in depots all over the country, siblings Nick and Lucy saw a gap in the Shredall SDS Group family business to deliver a service for individuals to store their personal and business items to declutter homes and businesses.
