Similar to a double garage – so two cars (end to end). Will swallow the contents of a three bed house or enough stock, especially if neatly racked out, to feed an ebay business or furniture removal company. Tradesmen with vehicles and large equipment find them ideal.

At many of our sites we also have secure, open compounds which are well used for larger vehicles, over sized equipment and weather resistant stock (typically – scaffolders, roofers and builders find them great). And at a minimum of 10ft wide (and no height restriction) they’re perfect for boats, caravans and motor homes.
