How Shipping Container Hire helps Vinci Response in Portsmouth

How Shipping Container Hire helps Vinci Response in Portsmouth

When a disaster strikes, be it flooding or fire, the immediate aftermath can be overwhelming for families and businesses alike. In such times, Vinci Response Services in Portsmouth and other restoration firms work standalone and with insurers to support. Offering professional damage restoration services. Their mission, however, extends beyond just the restoration of properties; it includes the safekeeping and refurbishment of cherished belongings. This is where our we were able to help Vinci after they recently moved into a new facility in Portsmouth, Hampshire.

The Problem: Recently, Vinci Response Services faced the challenge of expanding their storage and workspace to accommodate more equipment, and facilitate the onsite drying and restoration of goods salvaged from damaged properties.

Our mission was clear – deliver three shipping containers, each purposed to serve as both storage and restoration pods, placed precisely within their yard to maximise workflow efficiency. It was a task that required precision, and that's exactly what we provided.

Precision Positioning for Maximum Productivity: The containers, selected for their robust build and adaptability, were strategically positioned within the Vinci yard. Our experienced team worked closely with Vinci Response to ensure that the placement of each container allowed for optimal operational flow. The placement was designed to enable easy access for loading and unloading items, as well as seamless movement of staff between the containers and the main facility.

From Fire and Flood to Full Restoration: Each container now serves as a haven for the equipment, spares and goods undergoing meticulous cleaning and restoration. Be it household goods marred by smoke, or essential office equipment damaged by water, Vinci Response Services has enhanced capacity to bring these items back to their former glory, safeguarded within our containers.

This is a testament to the versatility of shipping containers. Far from their maritime origins, they can be transformed into well-organised workspaces and secure storage units, proving to be invaluable in disaster recovery and business operations alike.
