Lok’nStore has been providing self storage to consumers in Reading since 1997 when we opened our third storage facility. Originally situated in a one-hundred-year-old building; Lok'nStore opened the first storage centre in Reading where a customer could access their goods efficiently, rather than requesting a wooden crate to be available on their visit. Back then, removal companies would generally offer storage for customers, but this would be not very easy to access as it would often be sealed away in a wooden shipping crate. Lok'nStore brought a new style of storage into the Reading area that introduced the type of facility where a customer could turn up any time during opening hours and gain access to their goods without having to arrange so earlier.

The first Lok’nStore Reading store was previously a jam factory in Berkeley Avenue, which served the company and its customers very well for many years and must have witnessed many changes. The entrance to the old factory could be seen on the A33 if someone looked carefully enough – a visible bricked up doorway gave away the early opening and reception area.

In 2014 a site that Lok’nStore also owned just across the other side of the A33 was developed into a purpose-built self storage facility. This fantastically modern building was utterly the opposite of the first Lok’nStore in Reading. Built to allow drivers on the A33 and Berkeley Avenue to be able to see the inside of the building and to get an understanding of what a storage facility looks like inside. This feature has now been copied repeatedly throughout the storage industry.

The process of moving hundreds of existing customers from the old site to the new building was a tremendous challenge with plenty of potential pitfalls. The Lok'nStore operations department managed to complete the task within a few weeks, moving customer's goods carefully from the old store to the new. Moving customer goods is a task that they have completed several times as Lok’nstore has opened new stores in various locations.

Although it was sad to leave one of our original buildings, it was undoubtedly a vast improvement for the Reading staff and customers.
