In 2017, figures showed that the number of people taking part in sailing and watersports hit a seven-year high.
In total, over 14.3 million people (27.3% of UK adults) participated in any water-based leisure activities – an increase of two million on the previous year – so this definitely a growth market.
However, with the British weather such as it is, boat owners don’t want to be dragging their kit to and from the marina every time the sun shines – far better that they have somewhere safe and secure to store it, so it’s ready and waiting when conditions are favourable.
That’s where we come in; our storage containers can be installed quickly and easily, and are ready to use as soon as they hit the ground, providing the perfect solution for marina owners wanting to offer their customers something extra.
We supply containers of either 20ft or 40ft with four or eight doors, which provides enough space for sailors to store wet weather gear, boat kit and fishing equipment to keep it protected from the elements – and all multi-compartment containers can be ordered with roller doors for ease of access.
What’s more, the salty sea air is no match for a Mr Box container – all units are built to a full marine specification, manufactured from corrosion-resistant Corten steel and protected with marine grade paint.
All containers are very secure and are ideal for storing valuable goods. We fit all units with a high security locking system, which uses a steel shroud to protect the lock from bolt-croppers, angle grinders, chisels, or other methods of forced entry.
Best of all, our team will take care of everything – and we mean everything – from start to finish. From supplying and installing your units, to setting up storage agreements to give to your customers, we’ve got it covered – all you need to supply is the land.
You could say it’ll be plain sailing!
