The history of Space Storage Plymouth LTD, 1995 - Present
The owner Mr Blacker ran an architectural salvage business for 15 years prior to Space Storage. He purchased a large part of the old Moorhaven Hospital in Bittaford. This was converted into domestic properties and sold in 1999. The proceeds of this were used to fund the purchase of the land & buildings at Space Storage (together with a caravan to live in).
Mr Blacker continued to run his architectural salvage business for 2 years on site, but he recalls purchasing 4 old containers for his own stock. Before he could use them, he was having enquiries from business and domestic customers to rent them for self-storage – Space Storage was born!
– Rod together with his wife Kelly ran the business starting with 4 containers, they now have a fleet of over 250 containers with over 10,000 sq ft of internal self-storage space. Rod had a total refit of the warehouse into bespoke self-storage units and no sooner had we finished one unit, customers were coming in to rent them.
Charlotte is Rods eldest daughter she has a passion for sales with over 15 years’ experience. Charlotte has a son named Kyan Rods grandson who you will see in the office from time to time. Charlotte is passionate on looking after her family and customers.

The focus, as always, will be on providing the best customer service and keeping all our local competitors on their toes. This must be a benefit to all local people requiring self-storage.
