A new concept to hit the Costa del Sol
Mobile storage has rapidly expanded throughout the UK over the last few years and Britannia Southern is very proud to be introducing this concept to Malaga.
The whole process is very simple: We load an empty storage container onto a custom built trailer
at our warehouse, drive to the client's address, remove the door and stow the goods
safely inside the storage container. Once the container has been filled we drive back to our warehouse, off-load the container with a fork-lift truck and place it inside our warehouse in Mijas Costa.
Frequently asked questions
Can I stow(pack) the goods in the container myself?
We believe it's easier, quicker and safer for our staff to take care of this part of the service. The container has to be loaded correctly especially with regards to weight distribution.
How long have I got to load/unload the container?
We allow up to 2 hours to load the goods into the container and
one hour to unload. The time starts from the moment we arrive at the client's address but can be extended by prior agreement with our office.
Do you help to carry the goods to the container?
No. Our driver is simply there to stow the goods properly into the container, maximise the available space and protect the furniture with blankets. The client is responsible for getting
the items from the house/apartment to the container located on the roadside. If you need assistance we can quote for this separately. Please bear in mind that mobile storage is intended to be a low cost option and for this reason the client should be organised when it comes to loading/unloading the goods.
What is your operating area?
Our rates are based on collections/deliveries within 15 minutes of our depot. This covers areas such as Fuengirola, Mijas Costa, La Cala de Mijas, Mijas Pueblo, Benalmadena Pueblo and Benalmadena Costa. For other areas please call our office.
I live in the city centre, is this a problem?
Our aim is to provide this service to as many clients as possible but it's suitability depends on safe parking and good access for the trailer.
What does this service cost?
Our introductory offer is 295 Euros(incl. IVA and insurance) for collection, delivery and storage of one container for a period of 3 months. This is the minimum charge. The storage contract can be extended for further months at the current rate(please see our Terms and Conditions page). If loading/unloading times are exceeded the rate per additional hour is 30 Euros + IVA.
Advantages of Mobile Storage
1. No need to hire a man and van or a removal company
Taking your goods to a conventional self storage centre can be time consuming but with mobile storage you can save time and money by allowing the storage centre to come to you. The trailer's design also allows for easy loading avoiding the need for ramps or tail-lifts.
2. Less risk of damage to the goods
The more times you handle your furniture the more times you risk damaging items. Bear in mind that your goods won't be touched again until redelivery as opposed to using a van in which case you have to load, unload, reload and unload.
Only pay for the space you use
You can see firsthand how much space you'll need as the container is filled in front of you. If one container isn't enough then you simply order another one. With traditional Self Storage you could end up hiring a storage unit that you may only fill half full which means wasted money.
