Meet Kat

kat-caricatureNext in line for our Meet The Team profiles is Kat – our Duty Manager. Join her as she reminisces about her first experience on the forklift and what she’d take if she was stranded on a desert island!

Julian: Briefly sum yourself up in a few sentences?

Kat: Agh, this is one of those questions that’s always harder to answer than you think! I guess, if I was going to sum myself up, I’d say I’m a friendly and outgoing person that always endeavours to put the needs of others before myself.

Julian: Describe your most memorable moment whilst working at Storage World?

Kat: It has to be the time I first learnt how to use the forklift. Naturally, working at a storage company, I was required to learn how to operate the forklift, as you never know when you may have to move something particularly heavy. To cut a long story short, let’s just say my first experience on the forklift almost ended in disaster! Thankfully, nothing was broken in the process and we all had a good chuckle about it.   Although I’m certainly more competent now,  I still don’t like getting on that thing!

Julian: Haha phew!  Kat,  if you were stuck on a desert island, what 3 things would you want to have with you? And why?

Kat: Firstly,  I’d bring a snorkel. I love swimming and exploring the ocean. In fact, I have plans to go and learn to Scuba Dive in New Zealand in the not too distant future! Next, I must admit I’d love to have a bottle of red wine, on seconds thoughts, maybe a crate? Ha!  I’m a real wine enthusiast and I’m sure a glass of red wine would provide me with great comfort!  Finally, have you heard of the book Shantaram? Well, it’s my personal favourite – I could read it over and over again!

Julian: Shantaram!? I’ll have to check it out… Next Kat, if you could have one superpower? What would it be and why?

Kat: I know everyone probably says this – but how awesome would it be to have the power of flight!? One things for certain, I’d fly off to New Zealand right now to start my Scuba Diving  course.  Travel is a true passion of mine, but unfortunately I’m not able to travel as frequently as I’d like, as flights are so damn expensive! Eliminating the costs of plane tickets by flying to places would truly be my dream.

Julian: Agreed, being able to fly would be amazing.  Finally, what do you particularly love about working at Storage World?

Kat: It would have to be trying to solve customer problems, or similarly, working flexibly to work out the diverse requirements of our customers.   Working out solutions for challenging circumstances is what makes any job exciting right? I have to deal with a wide range of customer enquiries on a daily basis!

Clean, safe and secure storage solution at an affordable price, highly recommend this place, very close to the heart of manchester, easy access in and out. Big thanks to Tricia and her team for sorting out my storage needs, very knowledgeable, professional and more importantly friendly.
Highly recommended.

A Quick and Easy Process

Quick and easy to reserve and simple sign up process when I arrived. I had under estimated my load size and needed more space which the guys on site quickly arranged for me. Very helpful and friendly staff. A recommended company

Same Day Move In

Fantastic experience. Needed storage quickly and the staff were on hand to help get everything sorted as fast as possible – was in the same day. They even helped to make sure I got the right size unit so I didn’t over pay – they could have sold me a far bigger one but wanted to make sure I got the best deal and was happy – that doesn’t happen very often! Well Done!

Ed Green-Moore

Extremely Helpful Staff

Extremely helpful staff, talked me through everything, gave me a tour of the facility, the sign up process was very straight forward, and most important excellent value for money.

John O'neill

Trolleys and Good Lighting

Great storage with lots of trolleys and good lighting. Lots of parking bays so it is easy to park close to the storage unit entrance. A friendly and helpful team (Anthony and Nick) that get back to you quickly by email or phone.

100% Recommended

100% recommend Storage World. The storage lockers are well priced, secure and very clean. The facility is well set up to make loading and unloading very straight forward. Jeni on the desk was so increddibly helpful and went out of her way to make sure we were well set up and happy. Thanks very much to all at Storage World and particularly Jeni!

Business Self Storage

Can’t praise the guys enough, Tricia initially found me a unit over year ago and patiently kept me up to date on availability as I was unable to move my business as quickly as I’d hoped. All the staff are friendly and helpful. A safe and clean place to work.
