Lock Stock Self Storage are pleased to announce the acquisition of two new sites that expands our reach into new territories.

The sites, located in the border counties of Shropshire and Herefordshire, further enforce our commitment to providing high quality affordable storage across North Wales and beyond.

The contract to acquire Craven Arms Self Storage and Ludlow Self Storage at Brimfield in Herefordshire, between Ludlow and Leominster was signed at the end of April.

The deals will take Lock Stock up to 30 sites with more than 4,600 units providing almost six million cubic feet of space.

It marks an increase of more than 300,000 cubic feet, a 5% increase on the firm’s overall space.

Operations Manager Mike Trow said:

“We have had a presence in the border counties for a while with sites in Shrewsbury, Oswestry and Newtown in Powys so it has very much been on our radar to expand there.


“We have taken over two existing sites which makes for an easier transition but both will get the Lock Stock treatment with the storage units painted our trademark dark green on serviced and secure sites.”

Trow said the company is continuing to look for more sites across Shropshire, Liverpool City Region, Cheshire and Greater Manchester.

He said there is a “real emphasis” on growing the business either by opening new sites or taking over existing storage parks.

He added: “We do see a gap in the market across the region between expensive, indoor storage and the cheaper more flexible option of container storage and we believe we can fill that gap.”
