Located on the banks of the River Cam, much of what Cambridge is, it owes to the eponymous university.
Cambridge is home to many high-tech businesses focused on software, electronics and biotechnology, thanks in part to start-ups cultivated at Cambridge University. According to Wikipedia, more than 40% of the workforce has a higher education qualification - more than twice the national average.
With many students traveling in and out of Cambridge and young businesses growing and expanding, there is an ever-increasing need to safely and conveniently store valuables, whether it be adventure gear, furniture, important documents or high-tech equipment.
Carol Jacklin, store manager of our Cambridge store, says that being located in a university town means that many Storage King Cambridge customers are students, both local and international. She adds that with many science and technology businesses based in the Cambridge Science Park, the oldest science park in the United Kingdom, a large number of these businesses store their various items with Storage King Cambridge.
“Being based in an affluent area means there are also a number of homeowners who use the facility, storing anything from sporting goods to important files or sentimental valuables. The store is located outside of Cambridge’s busy central area. This helps our customers avoid traffic congestion,” Carol says.
The store opened in June 2011 and consists of two buildings totalling 63 000 square feet. The second building was opened in 2012.
Doing good is good business, and the Cambridge store is regularly involved in raffles for Rays of Sunshine Children’s Charity, where the money raised goes towards brightening the lives of children with serious or life-limiting illnesses. The award-winning national children's charity helps to make life a little easier for seriously ill children in the UK aged three to 18 years old, by granting wishes, granting hospital ward wishes and organising outings and large-scale events for seriously ill children.
Besides renting storage units of differing sizes, the Cambridge store offers secure shredding service for confidential documents.
