About Us

StorageWise has evolved and developed over four generations of the Hickey family.

Our Background

Established in 1915, StorageWise is a 4th generation family-operated business and one of Ireland’s longest-running logistics and storage businesses. Originally called ‘Limerick Carting Company’ and founded by William Hickey, the business has a deep-rooted history and expertise in transporting and storing goods for families and businesses for over 100 years.

A key success for the business has been its ability to adapt and change to market demands, where today StorageWise provides a premium self storage facility located on Dock Road in Limerick that is both secure and easily accessible 24/7.

Continually reinvesting in its facility with the latest state-of-the-art technology provides secure storage space for customers with expansion plans to provide self storage services in other cities nationwide.

The evolution of StorageWise over the last 100 years was also supported by customer research and feedback. When it comes to self storage and the best customer care, StorageWise are the experts! The name StorageWise was selected to recognise the level of knowledge and self storage wisdom built up over 100 years. It also includes a character called ‘Albert Wise’ who is part of the dedicated team.

Speaking about the experts and the StorageWise name, CEO David Hickey states;

“The name StorageWise was developed to represent our unparalleled level of expertise and wisdom acquired by serving local communities, families and businesses for over 4 generations. In essence, our goal for StorageWise is to be known as your local, self storage experts.”

The Future

Whether it’s life events or lifestyle choices that have created the need for more secure storage space, StorageWise will provide customers with as much or as little space, over a short or long period of time as is needed.

Looking to the future, CEO David Hickey and the StorageWise team hope to build on what was successfully achieved over the last 100 years and by maintaining the highest standard of quality and customer care. StorageWise will also be adding further self storage facilities in Ireland.

Community, Charity & the Environment

StorageWise recognises that operating a business within local communities bears a responsibility to help make the community a better place, by supporting local charities, and making the business more environmentally sustainable. To support this, a wide range of initiatives have been identified, including retrofitting the storage facilities with solar panels, making StorageWise the very first in Ireland to take this step and providing a selection of eco-friendly packaging for customers to purchase.

With every customer rental, StorageWise will also donate to a local community or charity initiative.
