Storing business items? Don’t risk them to a storage container

Did you know, storage containers are rarely insulated, meaning they can expose your business items or stock to extremes in temperature. Why risk it? Budget shipping container storage is a false economy. Protect your business stock and tools with dry, purpose-built indoor storage.

Because there is no insulation, a storage container will condensate when experiencing temperature change – making items vulnerable to moisture, which can do serious damage.

Electrical goods are particularly susceptible to damage from temperature extremes, and condensation can render some electrical items unusable.

LCD or LED screens can freeze in cold temperatures – which can affect their performance; and power tools, heavy machinery and household appliances can all be damaged when exposed to damp or heat extremes.

Shipping containers, unmodified, are simply not designed to store items for more than a few days or weeks. Their steel shells quickly heat up in spring and summer, and easily become damp and cold in autumn and winter.

In addition to the temperature changes and condensation risk, shipping containers can rust, exposing them to risk of leaks – particularly around doors and openings.

And even soft furnishings don’t escape damage. Mould and bacteria can eat away at fabrics and cause irreparable damage.

Wood rots quickly and even plastic and vinyl can crack and bubble in extreme temperatures or damp conditions. Dry goods and powders will cake, and any packaging will deteriorate in uninsulated shipping containers.

So, when it comes to storing tools and stock you rely on for your business, placing them in an uncontrolled environment makes no sense, practically, or commercially.
