Home storage containers have become indispensable for many, offering a secure and convenient space to store items. At Storage on Site, we understand the diverse needs of our customers and provide a range of containers to cater to different requirements. Whether you’re looking for a standard container or one with specialised features, we’ve got you covered.

Standard Containers

Our grade 1 clean containers provide a fresh and new storage space, untouched by previous users. Perfect for various storage needs, these containers offer a secure and clean environment for your belongings.

Furniture Grade Containers with Spray Foam Roof Insulation

For those seeking extra protection against temperature variations and condensation, our Furniture Grade Containers with Spray Foam Roof Insulation are the ideal choice. The insulation regulates temperature, ensuring a consistent environment inside the container, effectively preventing condensation.

Absorber Poles

To combat moisture, we offer Absorber Poles, also known as Dampsticks. These short poles, filled with a special moisture-absorbing material, can absorb up to 2 litres of water. Easily replaceable, these poles contribute to maintaining a dry and safe storage space.

Specialised Spaces: Offices & Canteens

Our containers aren’t just for storage; they can also serve as functional spaces. Offices and canteens within containers come with insulation, windows, heaters, lights, and sockets. Ideal for storing moisture-sensitive items, these spaces open up possibilities beyond mere storage.

Optimising Space: Racking

To maximise the storage capacity inside the container, we offer Heavy Duty Steel Framed Racking sets. Configurable to store a variety of item sizes, these racks provide a minimum of three shelves, ensuring efficient use of space.

Convenience: Light/Electric Installations

Make your storage container even more user-friendly with our light/electric installations. A board with a consumer unit feeding sockets and lights can be easily connected, offering a plug-and-play solution for your convenience.

Tips for Household Storage

While our containers provide a secure environment, proper storage practices enhance the longevity of your items. Here are some tips to consider:

Ventilation Strategies

Regularly ventilate the container to prevent moisture build-up, especially during extreme temperature changes. Open the doors periodically to allow air circulation.

Proper Containerisation for Items

Consider specific containers for items like books, mattresses, and clothes boxes. Ensure each item is completely dry before packing it away.

Leather Upholstery Care

Protect leather upholstery by conditioning it to guard against moisture and drying. This simple step can significantly extend the life of your furniture.

Avoiding Hazardous Materials

Avoid storing hazardous materials or fuels in the container. Drain white goods and leave doors ajar if not wrapping them up.

Organising Stored Items

Leave spaces between stored items to allow for air circulation. Create passages for easy access to items you may need.

Insurance and Planning Permission

Before you finalise your storage solution, remember to check your household insurance coverage for the container and its contents. Additionally, be aware of any Planning Permission requirements for the use of storage containers on your property.

Choosing the right home storage container is essential for the safety and preservation of your belongings. Storage on Site offers a diverse range of containers, each catering to different needs. Whether you prioritise standard containers, specialised spaces, or convenient installations, we have the solution for you.
