We’re delighted to announce that we have been able to expand our industrial storage capacity by a further 20,000 sqft in order to accommodate the rising demand from our customers.

Industrial storage

Having recently acquired more warehousing space in the local area, our storage capacity has now risen to over 100,000 sqft.

Located in Kirkby-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire, with easy access from the M1, our industrial storage facility offers the following benefits:

  • Short or long term storage options for your heavy machinery and industrial equipment.
  • Areas to carry out heavy machinery maintenance or refurbishment works.
  • An area for PDI of heavy machinery.
  • The ability to invite customers to see a demonstration of machinery in operation.
  • Using the area as a showroom for potential customers

What Can We Store?

With high ceilings, large access doors, and good floor conditions, our warehouses are suitable to accommodate all types of large, heavy, and high value industrial machinery and equipment.

Examples of this includes:

  • CNC machining centres
  • Printing presses
  • Injection moulders
  • Furnaces
  • PSP’s
  • Textile manufacturing machinery
  • Food processing machinery
  • Extrusion machinery
  • Recycling machinery

New and used machinery dealers who are buying and selling machinery and need space to store equipment or carry out refurbishments find our industrial storage services extremely useful. They can require storage because they have not yet found a buyer, or the customer site is not ready for the machine to be installed. In these circumstances our warehouses provide the ideal site for prospective customers to inspect the machine or to see it in operation.

We are also an HMRC approved dry bonded facility. Our HMRC approved bonded warehouse is utilised by UK machinery agents and distributors who import machines that have not yet been sold. They are also used by manufacturers who have purchased machinery in advance of the completion of the site where it will be installed.

Our machinery and equipment storage package delivers a complete solution:

  • Collection of machinery/equipment.
  • Transport to Merritts storage facility.
  • Offload into our stores using our varied lifting equipment which includes overhead cranage, forklift trucks, Versa-Lift trucks, pick & carry cranes, and hydraulic gantries. We can lift up to 125Te.
  • Provide dedicated storage area for your items on a short or long term basis.
  • Load to Merritts trailers for onward delivery to Europe or within the UK.
  • Transport to your required location and offload.

Are Our Industrial Storage Facilities Secure?

Whilst under our supervision, we give the safety and security of your equipment and stock the highest priority. Our sites are enclosed with 2.4m palisade fencing and equipped with intruder alarms and CCTV. We ensure only authorised personnel enter the facility using access control systems.
