A-Storage started life in Bransgore. The site was very successful and enjoyed a 100% occupancy rate for 5 months! We realised that we needed to expand and started to look for a second site. In 2015 we found a building located on Charminster high street. The building had been empty for 9 years, had a leaking roof, rotten windows and doors and a leak in the basement which would allow a quick swim, if you were so inclined! However, we could see potential in this building and spent the next two years acquiring the site. In April 2017 we opened to the public after an extensive refurbishment. Drains were unblocked, roof repaired, new windows doors and walls, brand new metal units, CCTV, Fob entry… just about anything you can think of… we had to replace it!
The building is deceptive, an old Gentlemans residence with an industrial unit on the back, the building is much bigger than it initially appears. The mixture of Victorian and Industrial was a paradox and we needed to decorate the building in such a way as to have a welcome feel but not ignore the industrial nature of our business. We settled on a Steampunk theme for our reception and modern clean lines for our offices.
As well as internal metal units they decided to use the top floor of the building as offices and co-working space. Just off their reception is a meeting room and this is available to hire whether you have an existing relationship with them or not. The site has been set up as their Head Office and allows others to run their small business from this site also. Virtual offices and meeting room hire allow a professional frontage to any business.
