When we opened the first Cookes Storage Service in Sutton Coldfield we knew that we wanted to build strong relationships with our local community. We are, after all, part of Cookes Furniture, a family-owned business established in 1946. We know that family – local and business – is important. 

Now, eight years later, we’re proud of all we’ve accomplished. But as it’s been a while since we introduced ourselves, we thought it was time for a catch up. 

About Cookes Storage Sutton Coldfield

Where are we? We’re located just off the Kingsbury Road in Minworth, which makes us very easily accessible. We’re also lucky enough to be right next to the Plantsbrook Nature Reserve, a beautiful local resource. The reserve is 26 acres, most of which is taken up by ponds. There is a wildflower meadow and small woodland, and the whole reserve is buzzing with wildlife. It’s a great place for locals to visit and relax, and for school children to explore with rangers or teachers to learn more about wildlife and the natural environment. 

When you visit us, you’ll find our car park right in front of the doors with handily placed trolleys to help you unload and take your boxes and furniture to your own secure unit. We are always ready to welcome you with a cuppa and talk you through any questions about renting your unit you might have. 

Supporting business growth in Sutton Coldfield

Come into the reception, and you’ll be greeted by our manager, Debbie, or one of the team. Debbie is also our business liaison and spends time meeting with owners and entrepreneurs who are exploring the benefits of a storage unit to grow their business. We are active in supporting growth in the area and offer discounts for local businesses. We are also active in networking groups which means we can promote our customers as well as ourselves while we’re out and about. 

We know that business growth in the area helps us all, so we’re always ready to go one step further. As well as self-storage space, we provide a door-to-door service. So, if you need to move your office furniture into storage while you renovate, or preserve files in your secure unit for record-keeping, we can collect and move your items into your locker for you, saving you valuable time.

Our contracts are flexible too, which means your unit size can grow with your business. That means you don’t have to pay for space you aren’t using, and if you just need short-term options for seasonal use, we can help there as well.

Extra services in the community

Cookes are not just here for local businesses. We are proud of our record for supporting the local community too. Over the years we’ve been active in supporting charities. We provide short term services for some, such as acting as a drop box for Toys 4 Tots, providing boxes for annual YMCA sleep outs or donating space for hedgehog rescue. 

We’ve also been long term supporters of other local charities, such as Buddy Bag Foundation and Variety Club Children’s Charity. The wider Cookes Furniture family have been taking part in the Royal Sutton Fun Run for years. 

We are firm believers of giving back to the community that we are part of. That’s why we also offer a one-hour free collection to anyone within a 5-mile radius of B76. If this is something you think would help you, please get in touch to find out more

We hope that gives you a little more insight into who we are. As part of the Cookes Furniture family, we’re a name you can trust. We’d love to meet you too. Just drop in, and we’ll tell you more about how you can make the most of a little extra space for your home or business.
