NEED SOME STORAGE SPACE?
Containerised storage is our core business activity and we believe our facilities in Mijas Costa next to Fuengirola (Malaga) are second to none. There are many reasons why people will need to store their belongings at some point in their lives and Britannia Southern can make the whole process very straight forward. Our storage units are the ideal option for those who will not require frequent access to their items, during property moves or renovations.
Goods are stored in our industry standard 250 ft3 / 7 m3 wooden storage containers. The internal measurements are W150 x D211 x H224 cms. These versatile storage units are stacked three high within the warehouse by means of a reach truck. Each container is labelled accordingly and it's location is noted on our system. The client has sole use of the container and can have access to it with 48hrs notice. These containers are large enough to easily store three seater sofas and super king size beds.
At present Britannia Southern has over 320 storage containers at our centrally located depot in Mijas Costa (25 minutes from Marbella and Malaga), which is equipped with 24 hours security and remote video surveillance. To put this into perspective we have the space to store 70 x 20ft shipping containers! The building is situated on a privately owned industrial estate with access gates and provides a perfect environment for the storage containers, free from dust and humidity. For your peace of mind we also provide insurance cover (flooding, fire and theft) while your goods remain in storage through Mapfre.
We bring the warehouse to your front door. Thanks to our purpose built "container truck", furniture and household goods can be loaded directly into our industry standard 7m3 wooden storage containers at the client's home (depending on good access and parking). Handling is kept to an absolute minimum, considerably reducing therefore the risk of accidental damage to the client's possessions.
Mobile Self Storage
Mobile storage has rapidly expanded over the last few years. The process is very simple: We load an empty storage container onto a trailer at our warehouse, drive to the client's address and stow the goods safely inside the storage container. Once the container has been filled we drive back to our warehouse, off-load the container with a fork-lift truck and place it inside our warehouse. Please contact us to know more about this service.
We also store commercial goods preferably on pallets to allow easy movement within the warehouse and for easy unloading & loading purposes. Storage rates depend on the floor space required for the consignment and the length of time in store. Over the years we have stored jacuzzis, pool tables, new furniture, magazines and tiles just to name a few. Please feel free to contact us with your requirements.
This practical video produced by our colleagues at Britannia Sandersteads of London shows how to fill a standard 250 ft3 container. Properly stowing goods into a container requires experience and, of course, a bit of common sense. It's a known fact that a customer can waste a lot of space by not following certain techniques such as interlocking dining chairs or placing sofas on end. Because containers are moved from time to time by means of a fork-lift the weight of each container has to be distributed evenly with heavy items placed on the deck and lighter ones above.
