Ken Cochrane and Toni Foxton have been locals in the Wakatipu Basin for over 25 years and bought the storage facility in April 2013. Having increased security by installing the latest in gate tag security, they now have consent for a Manager's residence and plans to extensively increase the number of storage units available to meet Queenstown's increasing demand.
The 164 units range from 1.5 x 1.5m to 6 x 3m with each storer having their own private tag to open the security gate between the hours of 7am and 7pm every day and their own padlock to their unit door. Helpful, friendly service.
