A seasonal storage review

12 Dec 2019 - posted by James Jackson-Stops

As we head into a brand new decade, we thought we’d take a moment to look back at 2019. It’s been quite a year for us at Blue Bear Self-Storage… Here’s our seasonal storage review!

The Blue Bear Seasonal Storage Review:

Sparkling Sponsorship:

What a delight it’s been to sponsor Corby Town FC. We believe Corby Town FC and Blue Bear Storage go together like peas and carrots on your Christmas dinner plate! We’re both going places. Corby Town FC is currently top of the Southern Central League, and this year we’ve been climbing the self-storage league tables, with the opening of our third container storage facility.

Christmas Cracking Corby:

This year we opened our new state of the art site in Corby with a bang! You’ll find it on North Folds Road at the Oakley Hay Industrial Estate. No expense has been spared in our mission to provide the safest, most cost-effective storage solution in Corby. It was at the opening of Corby that we also first introduced our brand new container size. Our 8 ft units were a welcome addition to our 10 ft and 20 ft containers. This smaller size is perfect for seasonal storage if you don’t have a garden shed. At the end of summer, you can keep everything cosily tucked away!

So, to celebrate with us don your paper hat and let us tell you a Christmas cracker joke…

Why did Father Christmas put his sleigh in a self-storage unit? Because the cost of renting stables was two deer. Boom Boom!

A Business Initiative with Bells On:

This year, we launched our highly successful Bear Essentials Business Initiative. This initiative coincided with our Corby opening, offering one local start-up free container storage for a year. We wanted to help a fledgeling business keep overheads down and grow sustainably during their critical start-up phase. This year’s Bear Essentials Business Initiative was won by the exciting company, RUGGEDSTOCK, a sports brand for the go-getters and the non-quitters.

Triumphant Trustpilot Reviews:

As a business, delivering excellent customer service and choice is our #1 priority in everything we do. So, no seasonal storage review would be complete without a nod to our triumphant Trustpilot performance. We have achieved a 100% feedback record with 62 5* Trustpilot Reviews. We think that moves our star to the top of the tree!

Competitions to Celebrate:

This year we teamed up with some fantastic partners and brought you three exciting competitions. We collaborated with Bloom & Wild to bring you flowers for Valentine’s Day. We partnered with POPS to keep you cool with frozen treats in the height of summer. And, finally, we joined forces with RUGGEDSTOCK (our Bear Essentials Business Initiative winner) for a perfectly practical prize, a RUGGEDSTOCK wash bag and sports bag.

Congratulations to this year’s competition winners:

Bloom and Wild, Charlotte Cooke – Pops, Lara Glennie – RUGGEDSTOCK, Lynda Jones.

And stay tuned for more exciting competitions next year!
