Why Max for physical storage?

Situated within a former British Library archive and book repository, our 120,000 sqft facility is also a former canon factory and munitions store with walls that are more than four feet thick. As a listed building it is part of a private, patrolled estate offering managed access seven days a week.

Our clients tell us that many other storage companies take the view that as soon as the material has been received, that is the end of their involvement. Furthermore some companies make it difficult for their customers to access or remove their material at their own convenience. These obstructions are especially evident when it comes to exiting contracts. At Max we take the opposite approach: our role is to make life easy for our customers, to collaborate with them and to offer maximum flexibility at all times.
