At our St John’s Wood storage facility we discovered that around 8-10% of our residential storage customers use hybrid or electric cars. It may seem strange given that the market share of these vehicles in the UK is less that 1%*, but then residents of our Central London storage centre would say they were early adopters of most new ideas.
Using hybrid and electric vehicles makes an important contribution to reducing our individual and corporate carbon footprints. This reason alone justified Fort Box’s decision to add a EV Charge Point in their internal loading bay to their list of many free storage services. Many local customers frequently visit their storage rooms to bring or collect their goods, now they have the added convenience of being able to charge their car batteries for free if they wish.
With EV usage set to increase tenfold in the next ten years* across the UK, Fort Box expects to see many more of its Central London storage customers avail themselves of a free top up charge over the next few years. To see a full list of storage services offered visit our website.
* Market outlook to 2022 for battery electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. Report to UKGov Committee on Climate Change. Reference number ED46299 – Issue 3, AEA group
Lyndsey K. recently sent us a review and it brought such a smile to our face so we wanted to share with everyone!
“Quite possibly the best customer service I have ever received. Made what promised to be a difficult move incredibly smooth. Can’t recommend Fort Box highly enough. Will certainly use again.”

We had a “ball” down at the Canary Wharf last weekend co-sponsoring London Baseball’s Major League Baseball (MLB) Players Skills Camp. Former MLB baseball players visited from across the pond to teach local kids the fundamentals of playing baseball. Being active in our community is one of the core values at Fort Box Self Storage.
Kids enjoyed building forts out of the hundreds of boxes supplied by Fort Box. There were some very creative forts built throughout the day, including one with a built in hammock (see picture below)! We were honored to be the exclusive storage company supporting the event. Everyone left with lots of baseball knowledge and our team is prepared to strike out our competition this year!
