Every year at the FEDESSA Conference & Trade show, the European Industry Report is presented. This report contains the results of a survey conducted by FEDESSA. The survey will be administered to all organizations and companies affiliated with FEDESSA. The goal is to get a realistic picture of the self-storage industry in Europe.
We would like to continue growing in two markets new to us, the moving market in the United Kingdom and the storage market in France. So in late November we attended the Movers & Storers show in Stoneleigh, England and the NationalBox in Paris. In addition to these shows, we now have local stock in the UK and language assistance in France to maximize local customer facilitation. Seth enjoys recounting his experiences from the English show.

Recently, we have had the opportunity to take care of several projects, we would like to highlight Ireland and our own Netherlands. We tell you how we handled this and what is involved in delivering and building a storage facility.
We look forward to the European Fedessa Conference, to be held this year in our “own” Rotterdam. This is the conference for the joint self-storage associations in Europe.
The corona time was a difficult period for everyone. When we were finally able to put those behind us, fortunately it was again possible to show our face at the many trade shows that the various self-storage organizations were again able to organize. Join us for a quick review of some highlights of the busy trade show season.
It is good practice to take a brief look back at the past year in the last newsletter before the well-deserved vacations arrive everywhere. And of course, we are also sneaking a peek over the summer at what awaits us in the fall…..
My name is Seth Palsgraaf and employed at Universal Storage Containers for a little over a year. Since last summer, I have been involved a lot in trade show preparations. Now I had the opportunity to go along to the SSA UK in Birmingham. In this article my experiences and the of course the fair itself.
That our Z-Box is a unique, multi-purpose storage container you probably already knew, but we are always proud when we can illustrate it again with a practical example. Indeed, Eric Whittie, head of youth training at Go Ahead Eagles, had two wishes.
Recently, our engineer Danny and Maarten were in Sweden. Danny accompanied the second shipment to a self-storage park from Kontain in Vallentuna, and then visited the annual self-storage fair in Stockholm with Maarten.
Britons have now stored enough stuff to fill Buckingham Palace more than sixty times over. Lack of suitable and affordable housing, the continuing urge to buy and the difficulty of parting with unused belongings have meant that the self-storage business is likely to turn over £1 billion pounds a year this year….
We continue to actively seek opportunities to optimize the appearance and operation of our storage facilities. For example, we are constantly looking at new ways to heat containers and improve the overall indoor environment.
We recently provided another 1BOX location with our storage containers. This time it involved the Breda branch. But before the actual placement could begin, of course, a lot of preparation had gone into it.
Of course, USC was once again prominent at the annual ISS World Expo in Las Vegas. No impressions from Jan-Hein or Maarten this time. No, this year we let our American colleagues Courtney and Katey talk about their trade show experiences.
