New self access storage facilities at Burke Bros

Sep 18, 2015
The Mayor of Wolverhampton, Councillor Ian Brookfield, opened a new self storage facility for Burke Bros. on 9 June, 2015.

Plans started back in 2013 when Burke Bros Moving Group bosses, Gary and Chris Burke, recognised the opportunity to add complementary self storage services to their existing containerised, free standing and document archive storage. Successfully securing a Green Shoots grant funding awards (£50,000) in late 2014, allowed the work to commence in April 2015 to create 94 storage rooms of various sizes for public use. 

Gary Burke said: “Initial interest has been very positive! Since word got out, we’ve already received enquiries from local businesses, public sector organisations, 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 main contractor, was Active Supply and Design (CDM) Ltd.  The company used its experience to build the new facilities that include: new roofing to provide natural light; a new corridor from the main reception to the self store rooms; Active’s single tier mezzanine floor design with storage units at both ground and first floor level; all in a brightly lit, clean, safe, secure, dry environment. 

Chris Burke said: “We have all been very impressed by both the quality of Active’s work, plus the speed at which they built it, especially when the entire fit-out took just six weeks to complete.” 

Active’s director, Garth Williams, said: “We were delighted when Burke Bros chose us to help them enter the self storage marketplace along with their commitment to embrace the high standard of finish and quality of storage rooms we construct.” 

Free car parking, large loading bays, trolleys and forklifts are all available to make moving items in really easy. For customers’ peace of mind measures also include 24-hour security, 24-hour CCTV monitoring, strong perimeter fencing and secure gates, with each customer using their own padlocks on their own dedicated room, for easy access during regular opening hours.
