Very exciting… our Basingstoke facility has been selected as one of four finalists in the hugely competitive UK Independent Facility of the Year Award!
Making the finals is a great achievement – we are, of course, over the moon – and it’s even better because this is the first time Basingstoke has entered the competition as it’s just two years old.
Kevin and his team have adopted the same personal, fun and highly-attentive-to-detail approach to business as our Bournemouth facility, which won the very same category in 2014 and then again in 2017. And actually in 2014 it went on to win the award for the whole of Europe!
So, this year’s winner will be announced at the Self Storage Association UK awards dinner on September 6 in London… we’ll be there to see if we have won the award. If we do win (and why not?!), we will then be shortlisted for the European Self Storage Awards taking place in Paris on September 28. We’ll let you know how we get on.
Self-storage companies entering the awards are judged on various aspects, including what makes the business stand out from the crowd and how it meets the needs of its local market. Plus things like how well the business is performing, customer service and what investments have been made for its future.
