How It Started

Robert and Ley HowesThe man behind Birstall Mill Carpets has responded to repeated inquiries about storage space by helping to create the Fuzzy Lemon Self Storage Company in Birstall.

Friends, family and customers of Robert Howes and his wife Ley kept mentioning their desire to find somewhere where items large and small can be housed in total safety. In response Ley has been the driving force in creating Fuzzy Lemon Self Storage, situated behind the Birstall Mill showoom on Bradford Road.

In fact one of their first customers was Ley's parents, who were moving to live in Turkey and wanted to make sure some of their more sentimental items were well looked after.

"Many people are still unaware of what 'self storage' actually is," said Robert. "Most seem to think that it is just a warehouse, consisting of one large room. In fact it is just the opposite."

Fuzzy Lemon's storage units range in size, starting from 25 square feet and rising to 150 sq ft. There is a broad range to choose from. Ley, who has day-to-day responsibility for running the company, said: "People find that they can store small items like accounts for archiving, books and sports equipment to a house full of items when moving."

Ley added: "Each customer has private access to the storage unit, being the sole key holder. It gives them total privacy and security regarding their contents."

Security Is Important

Outside view of Fuzzy Lemon with sign"Security is obviously paramount in this business so we have covered all the angles by installing steel roller doors, large metal gates, CCTV and alarms."

The installation of the units has been carried out by Crewe-based industry leaders Active, Supply and Design.

Robert and Ley have been very pleased by their professionalism and efficiency. Access to Fuzzy Lemon is on the ground floor and there is a purpose built loading bay for all customers. Robert added: "Many people see self storage as an alternative to overstocking their garages because it means they can be used for their original purpose – housing cars."

Anything can be stored in units apart from pets, food and combustible materials and Fuzzy Lemon Self Storage units can be rented both short and long term. They also provide large container space in their outdoor but secure yard.

Ley added: "Robert and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those involved for their encouragement and support throughout this venture."
