Self-Storage really is something to write home about… Well, that’s what the good people at Buckingham publication, The Milton Keynes Citizen, believe.

Last month the friendly faces from the Blue Bear Self-Storage team were all over this article. But what exactly is it that makes our Buckingham and Petersfield self-storage facilities newsworthy?

Self-storage done differently

We do things a little differently at Blue Bear self-storage because we’ve been exactly where you are now. Our venture started when George, (he’s the good looking one), was searching high and low for affordable storage having moved house in London. Shocked at the prices he was asked to pay; he arranged to meet his pal, James (that’s me), for a refreshing beverage to discuss this matter. I had to get the round in… George had no money left after his foray into self-storage. Anyway, after one or two jars, we decided that we would do everything we could to correct this travesty of overpricing and Blue Bear Self-Storage was born!

Self-Storage Myth #1 – All shipping containers must have sailed the seas

Our mission, since that first pint in a pub, has always been to provide high quality yet cost-effective storage solutions. So we needed to look for alternatives to traditional self-storage facilities. Thinking outside the box (pun intended) we decided to use modified shipping containers. These are created especially for storage use, and the only journey they have made is the one to England. Unlike Captain Jack Sparrow, they haven’t been rolling around in the high seas; they are fully intact and able to keep all your belongings safe and dry. The end benefit is that they are cheaper for you to rent than many, more traditional types of storage unit. The cost of storing the contents of a 1 or 2 bedroom apartment at Blue Bear, (in Petersfield or Buckingham) is less than £23 a week. That’s less than the price of a decent curry and movie night.

We’ve got your back and your boxes in Buckingham & Petersfield

Just because we offer incredible value for money, it doesn’t mean we compromise on security. In fact, the safety of your belongings is our highest priority. Storage facilities and security go hand-in-hand, like a pint and a packet of pork scratchings. For that reason, both our Buckingham and Petersfield sites are security fenced with monitored CCTV and recorded gate opening systems.
