The centre of the United Kingdom’s economic recovery, Derby’s flourishing rail and automotive manufacturing sectors make this urban centre of the Midlands a vital cog in the country’s success.
Derby was one of the centres of Britain's Industrial Revolution, home to the Rolls-Royce car and aircraft factory in the early 1900’s and a major rail manufacturing centre. Today, the automotive industry continues to be a prominent feature in Derby, with Toyota being one such company that is active with a plant in the area. Last year, Toyota announced an investment of £240m into the Derbyshire plant which was a major boost for the automotive industry.
Jaguar Land Rover also has plans, with the company announcing earlier this year that they will be building a huge multi-million pound Jaguar Land Rover dealership on part of the former Derby Cattle Market.
What does this have to do with self storage? Well, a fair amount actually as we service both these industries to assist with a bulk of their storage needs.
Rail and automotive are just two of the industries that we service in Derby. Storage King Derby, which has units in varying sizes, opened in 2008 and became part of the Storage King group five years later. Today it is nearly 56,000 square feet in size, and features units which are modern, clean and secure. We also help private individuals looking to safely store sporting goods, furniture or memorabilia, as well as small and large businesses who require extra space for stock.
Storage King Derby is perfectly located in the West Meadows Industrial Estate, just five minutes from Derby town centre and seven minutes from Derby train station.
Our CEO Robin Greenwood believes that the location and quality of our Derby store is what sets it apart. “Storage King Derby has a prominent location with good visibility from the main road and convenient access. I believe it is the location, as well as our dedicated staff, that has led to this store consistently being over 80% occupied.’’
In 2016, Storage King Derby Manager Richard Locke won the ‘Manager of the Year’ title at the Federation of European Self Storage Associations awards. Storage King has a history of success at the Awards, and this particular accolade for Richard is proof of the Derby team’s attention to customer service and a positive approach to their daily work.
Besides renting storage units of differing sizes, the Derby store offers secure shredding service for confidential documents. If you are in need of safe and convenient self storage in the Derbyshire area, visit our Derby store at 8 Hansard Gate, West Meadows Industrial Estate, Derby, DE21 6AR. Or call us on 01332 332 900.
