Family-run self-storage company, Vanguard Storage, has announced the opening of a brand-new branch; its sixth store in London.

Strategically situated at Staples Corner, the branch will serve customers in Brent Cross and surrounding areas, such as Wembley, Neasden and Golder Green.

Vanguard Self Storage Staples Corner is located on the North Circular Road/A406 and can be accessed easily from all surrounding towns and areas. As with Vanguard Storage’s other locations, the Staples Corner branch will offer storage solutions for domestic and commercial customers, as well as students.

Mac McCullagh, Chairman at Vanguard Storage, said:

We are very proud to be opening a flagship store at Staples Corner. We hope that, in time, the building will become a landmark of the North Circular Road. The new branch will accommodate 60,000 sq. ft. of self-storage and another 50,000 document storage boxes for our Filebank business."

Vanguard Staples Corner is now home to a piece of history

Our Staples Corner branch will be the permanent home for the magnificent Hawker Hunter aircraft we have owned since 1989. This has been occasionally displayed on our tower overlooking the A40 over the years, and it's finally landed in our new branch. This Hawker Hunter, F1. WT555 is the first into the Royal Air Force and was presented to HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, in 1953. The jet has been extensively restored by Vanguard since we purchased it over thirty years ago, and now hangs in an atrium overlooking the North Circular Road.

Customers and aviation enthusiasts are welcome to pop in to take a closer look!

The Staples Corner location will be host to a wonderful piece of aviation history. The company has commissioned the restoration of Hawker Hunter F.1 WT555, manufactured in 1953 and airborne from Dunsfold on 16th May 1953. This is Vanguard’s novel way of drawing the attention of commuters and raising the interest of new customers.

But this isn’t Vanguard Storage’s first time investing in the purchase and restoration of historical vehicles. The company’s tower on the A40 has been host to an array of amusing objects that have taken turns adorning the branch. Over the years, commuters passing on the A40 have seen a Mark IV Tank, Santa on his sleigh, a Scout helicopter, a Spitfire, an inflatable dog and even Dr. Who’s Tardis.

The Hawker Hunter jet on display in the Vanguard Storage Staples Corner branch just adds an impressive new achievement to Vanguard’s list.

All requirements catered for

The new Staples Corner facility will offer a variety of storage unit sizes, ranging from 10 sq. ft lockers, ideal for storing several personal items, to 1,000 sq. ft units, suitable for storing larger items of furniture. At Vanguard we offer domestic self-storage, commercial self-storage and student self-storage. The store is secured by keypad access control, individual alarmed units and 24-hour monitored CCTV and alarms. Units are available on a flexible contract with a minimum term of just one week.

Special opening offer!

To mark the opening, Vanguard Self Storage is offering a time-limited offer for all new customers, who can enjoy a 50% discount for the first eight weeks of the store’s opening.
