Ballards Storage launches in Lincoln

We have a new neighbour at Boulder Business Park in Lincoln: Removals and logistics company, Ballards will now be offering self-storage services next door to our HQ.

The family-run company has 188 self-storage containers for people and businesses to store their belongings, just a short drive from Lincoln city centre.

Our parent company, Boulder Developments is partnering with Ballards to bring the service to Lincoln and we’re also offering warehouse and office space for businesses.

Better yet, we’ve made sure that you can safely and securely use the new self-storage service while social distancing as part of the coronavirus lockdown.

You can book storage on a subscription bases online at www.self-storage-lincoln.co.uk, enabling you to set up, use and manage your storage without coming close to anyone.

Secure storage in Lincoln

Alongside Ballards, our sister company, Boulder Storage is offering secure warehouse and office space on our business park. This warehouse storage is ideal for businesses which need to scale up their operations or stockpile product and the office space offers great facilities in an accessible city location with superfast broadband.

Ballards is the seventh company to move onto Boulder Business Park since our parent company bought it, reinvigorating an important area of the city. Previously, the five acre site was a food distribution centre for Lincolnshire Co-op which was closed in 2017.

Since we took over, it’s become the headquarters of Boulder Developments, Ventilation Magastore, Boulder Storage and, of course, SuperFOIL. We’ve also been joined by Polish food distributor, Spizarnia and web development agency, Orisel.

Our director, Will Bown explains how the partnership with Ballards delivers another great service for local residents and businesses:

“We’re very pleased that Ballards will be offering their storage solutions from our site at Boulder Business Park because self-storage is a great service to be able to offer the people of Lincolnshire.

Whether it’s a caravan, outdoor furniture, boxes of old photos, childrens’ toys or family heirlooms, who doesn’t have belongings that are taking up space in their homes? Now, we’re working with Ballards, we can provide people with a place where they can securely store all their items at an affordable price.

We’re also aiming to help other businesses in the area with container and warehouse storage as well as providing office space which could be perfect for startups, small manufacturers, or even businesses that need to stockpile products or put things away for a while”

A family business bond

As a family business which was also founded in Nottinghamshire, we have a lot in common with Ballards.

The company, which is based at Markam Moor near Newark was founded in 1978 and it provides domestic and commercial removals, secure storage solutions, van hire and haulage.

Ballards now one of the longest established and most well-respected removals and logistics companies in the East Midlands – and it operates across the continent.

Matthew Ballard, group managing director of Ballards, said:

“We are thrilled to be in a position to offer customers in Lincoln a flexible, convenient and good value self-store facility. The location of the facility is perfect and this will be the first time in our 41 year history that we have had a city base as our depots historically have been rural. I am excited by the partnership with Boulder Developments – our values, culture and ethics are very similar and this will lead to a very customer-centric, honest, straight forward, and transparent offering at the new self-store facility. 

“Self-store is a growing market and a market we know well. I am confident because of the fantastic location that we will very quickly reach capacity. The Lincoln B2B community and the opportunity this represents cannot be underestimated, I am really thrilled to be launching a business in Lincoln and to become a part of the local community. During these last few weeks, we have seen how vital it is to be part of a community and I feel this will only become more important moving forward.”
