Established in 1973
We originally set up our Doorstep Dairy business in 1973 with just 1 round & when we sold the business in 2003 when we had 9 rounds.
Tiger Hire was originally set up in 1999 to provide customers with a ‘One Stop Shop’ for everything required for Events, Weddings, Parties etc
Including supplying Marquees, Catering Equipment, Bouncy Castles, Toilets & more, something it has been doing very well for over 20 years, but all good things come to an end, we started to plan for a life of ‘Semi Retirement’ towards the end of 2019, then we all know what happened next ‘Covid’ which threw a giant sized spanner in the works.
Marquee Hire is quite a physical type of job and is best suited to the younger workforce, we had planned to complete the 2020 season & have a sale of our Marquees at the end of that year to start the next phase of our lives, despite all the difficulties we made the decision to continue with the plan to sell our marquees by auction which took place in Oct 2020.
We have now converted the buildings we had for storing marquees for ‘Self Storage’ our Toilet Hire business has now closed & the toilets have been sold, so we now have more time to devote to our new storage business
We have now realised there is a requirement for container Self Storage & we now have a number of new 20ft containers.
Touring Caravan Storage will come next year
We are looking forward to a new challenge & meeting new people.
