We operate several sites across the UK where trades people can store tools or stock, in our robust, fully weatherproof, low cost storage units. All our secure storage facilities enable easy access to container units, seven days a week, 365 days a year at affordable, competitive prices.

Why do tradespeople like plumbers and electricians need extra storage space?

At Blue Bear Self Storage we understand that tradespeople, such as plumbers and electricians, often require additional storage space to support their work effectively. Here’s some of the storage we can help with:

  1. Storing Tools and Equipment: All Tradespeople rely on a wide range of tools and equipment for their jobs. Having extra storage space allows you to safely store and organise your tools, ensuring quick and easy access when needed. It also helps protect valuable equipment from damage or loss.
  2. Bulk Material Storage: Tradespeople often need to stock up on plumbing fixtures, electrical components, and other materials. We offer dedicated storage space for bulk materials enabling tradespeople to efficiently manage their inventory and access the required items without delay.
  3. Holding Stock of Parts: Tradespeople frequently require a supply of common parts and components, such as connectors, valves, switches, or wiring. Having extra storage space with Blue Bear Self Storage allows them to keep a stock of these parts readily available, reducing the time spent sourcing them for each job.
  4. Vehicle and Equipment Storage: Tradespeople often have specialised vehicles and equipment, such as work vans, compressors, or pipe threading machines. At Blue Bear we can provide space which allows you to securely park and store your vehicles and equipment when not in use, protecting them from theft or weather damage.
  5. Document and Paperwork Storage: Like any business, tradespeople generate paperwork, including invoices, contracts, permits, and manuals. Blue Bear offer dedicated storage for documents ensuring they can be easily accessed, organized, and protected for legal and administrative purposes.
  6. By understanding the unique storage needs of tradespeople like plumbers electricians and carpenters, Blue Bear Self Storage provides tailored solutions to accommodate their requirements. Our secure and flexible storage facilities offer a convenient and reliable space for tradespeople to store tools, equipment, supplies, and inventory, supporting their work efficiency and organisation.
