Small businesses in Yorkshire seeking storage space are being urged to contact Onward Holdings about its new purpose-built self-storage facilities for commercial use at the Green Lane Industrial Estate, Featherstone.

Nationwide demand for commercial self-storage space is growing as small businesses and online retailers realise they are convenient and cost-effective places to store their stock – there has already been strong expressions of interest in the few remaining Green Door units available at Featherstone, said Onward Holdings.

Situated within one of the most sought after northern distribution locations in the UK, with easy access to the transport network and just minutes from the M62, the Green Door self-storage units offer some of the most flexible terms to be found in the industry.

Onward Holdings, sales director, Neil Storey, says the Green Door units come in a variety of sizes, with around the clock access, and can be used as mini warehouses or depots, offering small businesses or e-commerce firms cost-effective storage for distributing goods and materials. 

He commented: “Small business owners can access their goods stored at Green Door 24/7. A lot of self-storage companies close at 5.30pm or on a Sunday but we give customers keyfobs and they can come any time of the day or night.”

Security is something Green Door has prioritised too, as Mr Storey explained: “There will be a secure gate that customers can only open via a mobile phone number. Monitored CCTV also leaves people feeling safe no matter what time they are on site.”

As well as flexible access, Green Door has gone all out to offer flexible terms, with a licence available for a total of four weeks, with a week’s notice period after the third week.

Neil Storey said: “This definitely appeals to customers that experience seasonal peaks and troughs or are unsure how long they need storage for. Our lease options mean they can end their lease with us at short notice and without being tied into paying for months.”

A number of customers moved with the company to their new premises, but Green Door still have units available that would fit any small business’s requirements, ranging from 15 square feet for small items to 160 square feet.

Green Door Self Store is a division of Onward Holdings, which was established over 80 years ago. The family-run business specialises in operating highly competitively priced industrial warehousing and retail parks in the North of England.

Its warehousing sites include Featherstone, Castleford, Doncaster, Ackworth and Scunthorpe as well as the very busy Onyx Retail Park at Wath upon Dearne, which has just one remaining unit of 2,000sqft on the site for letting.
