Storage

Dawson can provide several solutions for both short and long term storage. Our purpose built facility can accommodate various storage solutions to suit each individuals requirements. We offer a range of storage options, varying from an 8 cubic meter timber storage module up to a 37 cubic meter container.

Dawson also offers peace of mind by being one of very few removal companies that can store the container internally within the premises. This ensures that the container remains weather proof and is temperature and pest controlled. Dawsons storage facility is also fully alarmed with back to base security.
