  • Container Hire Renting Storage Space Storage for Business

Meet Malcolm, our Mission Controller for the Tewkesbury Space Program;

Self-storage to hire, renting a container, business storage
“I became Mission Controller of Tewkesbury Space Program after 35 years on the road in sales. One of the biggest changes was becoming a lone worker. It’s very strange, enjoying your own company after years of being social and meeting all types of people.

The funny thing is I am still meeting all types of people – just without all the hassle of travelling 50,000 miles a year. House movers are regular customers but, increasingly, local business are hiring self-storage and operating from this site. Plumbers, electricians, heating engineers, builders, roofers, marquee hires, bouncy castle hires, just to name a few.

For a very long period of the day, I don’t see anybody. There may be a few customers driving in and out of the yard; I will always try and say hello to them. Far from staring at 4 walls, however, I have spent a lot of time engaging with people on Facebook. I looking at what’s going on in the Tewkesbury community and interact wherever possible. I have also joined LinkedIn, which is a business platform and have been in touch with a lot of local businesses.

As a lone worker, health and safety is paramount and I don’t even notice the banks of CCTV cameras dotted around the site, keeping a protective watch over everything. I eat, drink when I want, maintain the site with a bit of weeding. Pick up a bit of litter. I’ve never been happier. Do pop in and say hello if you are passing by!”
