Welcome to ParknCruise UK
At Lok’nStore we are really excited about our new project at Manor House Avenue in Southampton – ParknCruise!
Over the next year our former self storage facility will gradually be turned into a secure, undercover car park for cruise ship passengers and the crew members of these massive hotels of the seas. We intend to use our customer service skills gained since 1995 as the UKs ‘friendliest’ self storage operator to offer a refreshing new service to cruise ship passengers departing from and arriving at, any of the cruise terminals in Southampton.
Turning our much loved building in Manor Avenue into a car park for cruise ship passengers isn’t as simple as you might think. There are a number of extra safety considerations that have to be taken into account, including exhaust ventilation and easier access for vehicles, although we have already been surprised by some elements of the project. For instance: the floor loading rating for a self-storage facility is much higher than that of a car park, so our ParknCruise building already has floors that are more than strong enough to take the weight of vehicles.
The building has already been stripped out, and stands empty, waiting for our construction guys to arrive onsite during the next few weeks to begin the process.
During the ParknCruise Southampton project we will be posting regular updates on our progress here on the blog as we head towards launch (a thousand apologies for the pun).
