Big Clean for Big Yellow Self Storage

Over the cold grey winter months, we have been hard at work cleaning Big Yellow Self Storage units. Big Yellow Self Storage has huge units located all over the UK and the project provided an opportunity for us to prove our ability to deliver a brilliant service, and brilliant exterior surface cleaning, across multiple sites and over a wide geographic area. 

Have van, will travel

The company first contacted us to clean their Bristol storage unit, as soon as they realised that we offer a far wider geographic cover they asked us to quote for additional units. We’ve now cleaned 19 of their massive storage units in London (and surrounding areas), Cardiff, Colchester, Nottingham and Sheffield, and we are about to complete one in Edinburgh.

Great service and competitive rates

Cost was a significant factor in winning these projects. Our unique pressurised steam cleaning system is extremely efficient which means that we can often complete cleaning projects to a very high standard more quickly than other companies – which makes us very competitive on price.

Efficient planning and communications  

But it’s not just about the cost and the quality of the cleaning, customer service was of critical importance as well. We soon came to realise that previous contractors had failed to deliver in terms of both the quality of their cleaning and the way that they went about their work.

Communication is key, we always call to pre-confirm dates for cleaning and make sure that it will be convenient for us to be on site. We also ensure that that we will be able to gain entry, set up our high-level access equipment and carry out work safely and efficiently. Because of the way the units are constructed - to maximise the land they go to the edge of the plot - it was often tricky to find a space in which to set up our kit. Having experience of working in some pretty tight spaces, we can source niche access equipment and get the job done.

Let the sun shine

The buildings that we cleaned for Big Yellow were mainly industrial style warehouses, many clad with aluminium, and a lot looked more green than yellow when we started work! SteamPLUS, our pressurised steam cleaning equipment, is brilliant for cleaning all kinds of cladding and we were able to quickly remove layers of built-up dirt and grime, transforming the storage units back to their original bright and sunny yellow colour. We also cleaned out the gutters while we had the access equipment in place, which will help protect the buildings from water damage.

We've received very positive feedback from everyone at Big Yellow, and they have asked us to come and clean their car parks next.

To find out more about exterior cleaning for multi-site units please contact Max or Andy Morris on 0333 234 1445 or email and we will get back to you.
