We’re thrilled to announce that blue self storage has won Container Operator Site of the Year for the second time at the 2023 UK SSA Awards – this calls for confetti!
On May 16th 2023, we attended the awards event in Birmingham and travelled in full force with 9 of our team members. We were over the moon to be announced as the award winner, and our deserving team had a fantastic time celebrating.
Securing the UK Container Operator Site of the Year 2023 award is a huge achievement, and a testament to our exceptional service, commitment to high standards, and dedication to providing secure and accessible storage solutions. We’d like to congratulate and thank all of our hard working staff. We’re popping the champagne (safely stored, of course!) to toast this victory!
Speaking on the win, Dean Daly, Operations Manager, said: “Winning UK Container Operator Site of the Year 2023 is a great achievement by the team who have worked extremely hard to make our facility a worthy winner. At blue self storage we do things a little differently and it’s great our accomplishments have been recognised on a national level. The team were out in force and it was great to share the experience with them.”
