Governments and councils all over the country have the same issues as businesses, especially when it comes to logistics.
Storage is a major issue for official bodies, national or local.
It’s easy enough to find somewhere to store something, but the problem is finding somewhere that’s safe and secure.
Official bodies need somewhere their goods, documents or equipment won’t be at risk from theft, damage, or prying eyes.
Luckily, we have the answer.

How we can help
We have extensive experience when it comes to Government and Council storage solutions.
Our dedicated and professional team can help store and protect your items, using the latest storage equipment available.
Here are a few of our products and services that can help you store whatever you need.
Our longspan shelving is robust, versatile and cost-effective. Specially designed for industrial and commercial applications, it’s made for storing a wide range of items, from boxes to machinery.
Wire Mesh Shelving
Wire mesh shelving gives strong support for boxes or other non-palletised loads, or loads not deep enough to sit on beams. A great alternative to MDF, wire mesh shelving reduces dust build-up and minimises fire risk making it a great choice for storage of important documents.
There’s no point in storing important items if the shelves they’re kept on collapses! Our anti-collapse mesh uses wire mesh and brackets along with a consistent wire thickness that creates uniform strength and rigidity across large areas.
No matter how sturdy your shelves are, they’re only as good as the racking they’re built on.
Our high-quality pallet racking is made from certified steel and meet New Zealand’s stringent seismic requirements, minimising the chances of collapse during an earthquake.
It’s always important to see previous examples of happy customers, especially when it comes to spending taxpayer’s money. Here are two examples of previous clients we helped with their storage needs.
Manukau Institute of Technology
A purpose-built facility, Manukau Institute of Technology TechPark brings all the institute’s trades and engineering schools under one roof for the first time since MIT was founded almost 50 years ago.
With trades varying from automotive and engineering to building and plumbing, their racking requirements are both diverse and highly specific. MIT required a racking solution that addressed both the current and future needs for housing the unique equipment required for each trade.
Our team worked closely with MIT to understand exactly how each facility would be using the new campus. Attention to detail was paramount and the design team developed a clear understanding of the building layout, what equipment and resources needed to be housed and how these would be used.
Specialised racking solutions were implemented to suit the needs of each department, including tyre racking for the mechanical trades, galvanised cantilever racking to store timber and overlength products outside for building trades.
With thousands of students and teachers moving through the campus on a daily basis, safety mesh was installed behind the racking to protect the public and those on the other side, keeping everything securely in place.
In-depth planning was required to ensure tight deadlines were met for the opening of the facility, which we’re happy to report was a success.
Xigo for Auckland Museum
Auckland Museum houses millions of ancient artefacts and objects of desire so when it came to finding a place for everything they turned to PRS to help keep everything, in its place.
They needed to expand their storage to provide them with better accessibility and visibility to their artefacts, allowing them to know exactly what was stored where. The high-tech, temperature-controlled facility demanded the best storage system available, which is why they came to us.
The storage solution needed to be flexible and non-generic, with the product supplied needing to be at the highest level of quality operationally, visually and structurally.
After some serious analysis, the solution in this case was to use a Cantilever Racking System and Selective Racking. This provided the flexibility the museum required whilst complying with their point loading restrictions.
Working around building sequencing and racking installation timeframes was an ongoing challenge and required flexibility in installation timing, as well as the need to store the racking until the warehouse was ready.
