We all yearn for more space, regardless of how big our homes or offices are. And, if you live in Nelson and you’re starting to feel overwhelmed with the amount of stuff you have, then we have a solution for you.

My Storage is pleased to introduce our 80 new storage containers!

If you’re a loyal My Storage client or fan, you’ll know that we’ve been working hard and waiting patiently for our new units to arrive over the past few months. They’ve finally made it here to little wee Nelson, despite the disruptions of COVID, shipping delays, and local transit, and we couldn’t be more excited.

Let’s take a quick look at how we got them into our yard.

Port Nelson

The last leg of the journey started at Port Nelson. We loaded our 80 storage containers onto crane trucks with the help of the folks at BCL Crane & Cartage so that they could be delivered to their forever home. But let’s first rewind a bit.

Before this happened, we thought we could get away with a forklift. A few inquiries later, we soon found out that there was no forklift that was big enough to carry each of our 9.7-tonne containers. So we got in touch with the guys at Lift N Shift Limited and hired a crane. The crane worked perfectly and made the job easier, faster, and safer.

The yard

Once our 80 new, long-awaited containers touched down in our yard, the construction process began, and that too, with little stress. Can you believe that setting up a home garden shed or a furniture piece from IKEA is harder than setting up our kit set storage containers? The instructions were super straightforward to follow, which made our job a breeze.

As you can imagine, setting up 80 containers can take some time, but in the meantime, we had the ball rolling with professional cleaning and asphalting.

Professional cleaning and asphalting

All of our units have been professionally cleaned as we like to ensure our clients have the cleanest units possible. Our grounds will also be finished next week, so your arrival will be much more pleasant through the gravel. Not to mention fewer footprints in our office.


Our new storage kit set containers are perfect for creating more space at home or at work.

They’re designed specifically for storage and are sold and used internationally, a step up for the local storage scene and for My Storage!

Key features include:

  • Wind, water, and vermin resistance
  • Fully lockable
  • Insulated
  • Professional cleaned before you move in

All of our new storage containers will also have new numbering, with the numbers being placed higher than our previous units so that you can easily identify them and avoid any confusion.

While it has only been one week since the arrival of our new containers, so much has happened in our yard, and we couldn’t be more thankful for the positive response we’ve been receiving. Within the first week, we’ve already had five containers rented out, and they seem to be a hit because there is an obvious need for them.

If you’re on the lookout for some extra space in your home or office, our new kit set storage containers could be the perfect solution. To learn more about our new containers and the range of storage sizes available, please visit our unit sizes page on our website.
