Hitchcocks Business Park has welcomed its latest tenant – Fred’s Self Storage. Established by Jemma Hodgkins, Fred’s Self Storage offers a number of secure storage options for its customers.
Jemma, who launched the business whilst on maternity leave, said she was inspired to start the company after she and her fiancé Richard Persey, who owns Hitchcocks Business Park, received calls from people asking for storage facilities.
She added: “Launching a business during a pandemic and while on maternity leave, with a nine-month-old baby, has certainly been an interesting challenge, but we knew there was demand from the number of enquiries we were receiving. We’ve already had a variety of customers, from people clearing out during lockdown, to those who are downsizing and need a bit of extra space.
“We know how important it is for people to access their container at a time and day that suits them, so we have extended access times, from 6am through to 11pm, seven days a week. This is such a nice site and a really nice place to visit, which is not always the case with other storage facilities. The storage units also benefit from 24-hour security with patrols throughout the night.”
