2012 is going to be a big year for us at Container Team because, on the 1st April 2012, Container Team turns ten years old.
Ten years ago Tim and I opened up a container storage depot in Weston-super-Mare. It didn’t take us long to realise that, with lots of empty containers in our yard, we could open up a self storage park and we have been providing cost effective, secure self storage to local businesses and residents in and near Weston ever since.
The business has grown and grown over the last 10 years and we now offer a number of different services. Container hire is at the core of our business and we have a fleet of storage containers on hire to customers throughout the country. People have rented containers for all sorts of surprising things from Santa’s Grotto to a shelter for leopard in a safari park. We’ve kept the beer cool at country shows and kept the play equipment safe for thousands of school children. Of course they also have the much mundane uses such as on-site storage and portable site accommodation for builders.
We have also sold thousands of containers during the last ten years – in fact we have sold over £2.5million worth to happy customers throughout the UK. Container sales is at the heart of our business and we are proud of our track record of customer service and customer loyalty. Our long standing customers who have made videos for us on our You Tube Channel talk about how they wouldn’t use anyone else for their storage requirements having been delighted with the service and quality of container we provide. We always have a large stock of containers for sale so we have been able to provide a quick response when one was needed.
We also provide refrigerated containers for hire and sale and have a fleet of refrigerated trailers. Again they have been used for many purposes from extra cold storage at weddings, parties and functions to helping to keep the crowds fed at Glastonbury. We also formed Team Refrigeration in 2006 for this side of the business so check out the website for more information fridge trailers.
It’s been a great ten years and times are certainly a lot tougher that they were when we started out. We’ve learnt a lot though and Tim and I are determined to work hard to make 2012 our best year ever!
