Over the next 6 weeks, The Store Room on Eccles New Road (which serves the West Manchester and Salford areas) will undertake a major expansion of its self storage facility where extra rooms are needed to meet growing demand from people moving house and from local businesses looking for short term flexible storage. The recent increase in demand from people moving house is a strong indicator that the local Salford and WestManchester housing market is finally on the road to recovery and the increase in business customers is a further sign that business confidence is returning to the area. The new rooms will be available to rent from mid-May 2014 and customers are reserving some of that space already.
The total capital investment at the Salford branch is approximately £100,000 and follows on from the company’s recent expansions at its Leicester, Leeds and Bradford locations where £200,000 has already been spent so far this year.
The Store Room’s Managing Director,Jeremy Bradburn explained his optimism in regard to the development of the Salford facility, “The early months of the year are normally quiet in the self storage industry, but 2014 seems to be bucking that trend. Enquiries and customer numbers are both significantly up against last year and we need to make the investment in our Salford location now to increase its capacity so that we can meet this extra demand”.
“We have a number of things in our favour at the Salford branch.” Bradburn continues. “Our close proximity to MediaCity and toTrafford Park makes us a natural choice for businesses seeking secure storage in the Salford area, whilst we are also ideally situated for all Salford and West Manchester domestic customers who need storage whilst moving house. The recent improvement in enquiries from people moving house is very encouraging and after a number of quiet years we are very excited about the months ahead”
