“Our team were eager to maximise our storage capacity and our neighbours (Locators) came highly recommended. After meeting with their storage solution specialists we were impressed by their flexibility and found their simple, yet effective proposal enlightening. Their solution has helped us proficiently manage the space within our unit and we’d welcome them back for further optimisations. In fact, we’re in the process of scoping out a forklift for future use.”

Pete Jones
Production Manager, Externiture

“The erection of longspan shelving at our new dispatch warehouse was prompt and effective. Knowing we wanted to hit the ground running, Locators proposed that we chose a simple yet effective solution for the time being. This decision has given us ample room for additional capacity in the future. So far, the longspan shelving has really helped us proficiently manage the space within the warehouse. We were impressed by Locators efficiency – especially in the heart of a pandemic – and are looking forward to working with them again for our expansion.”

Martin Goldsmith
Online Retail Operations Manager, Hillier, Ampfield

“We were very impressed with the design proposal from Locators as they achieved a storage density much greater than we had hoped for. They have installed a high quality, British and CE standard, cantilever racking system with adjustable arm positions and additional capacity which will be useful if vehicles continue to become heavier and taller in the future. We do believe they have future-proofed our needs.”
