5 Reasons Why A Self-Storage Unit Is Exactly What Your Business Needs

If the last year and a half has taught us anything, it’s that we can’t always predict the future. And thanks to the Coronavirus, we’ve seen a lot of businesses making rapid changes in order to stay afloat. Some of the changes made would have happened at some point anyway (home working has been on the horizon for a while), but other changes have been fuelled by the need to stay ahead and competitive. And we don’t that businesses will stop evolving when the pandemic is over. New innovations and ways of working will keep rolling in, and one of the things we think will keep rising is the business use of self-storage. Up until Covid, businesses who used self-storage effectively were in the minority. But now, we’re seeing a lot more business owners asking about how they can utilise our spaces and services to help grow their business. So this month, here are 5 benefits to renting a self-storage unit for your business.

 

Convenient & Flexible

One of the biggest benefits business owners see from self-storage is how simple it is to use, and how easy it is to change. We understand that business needs can sometimes change week-on-week, which is why our services are designed to be as flexible as possible. You can move up and down unit sizes as much as you need with very little notice, and your notice period on moving out can be as little as a week. Storage units are easy to rent and pay for, and can store almost anything that isn’t hazardous or dangerous.

It’s also incredibly convenient to be able to have a large space to store things like deliveries. In fact, we accept many deliveries on behalf of our customers, and provide a secure space to store them until someone can deal with them. A storage unit also means you can use that space to process deliveries, and take only what you need back to office or retail space.

 

Easy Expansion

A growing business is good news, but if you sell things then it can also be an issue. In order to keep up with customer demands you need to sell more product, which means you need a place to store it. Self-storage gives you a flexible, external space to store anything you need for your business, and you can scale that up whenever you need to with very little extra cost. And if you need to free up more space for incoming staff? We can house office supplies and anything else you need out of the way!

 

Guaranteed Safety

A self-storage unit also provides a guaranteed safe and secure environment for any classified, sensitive or valuable data and equipment – especially if you don’t want or need to store it on site. With 24 hour security, CCTV, unique locks and access systems, you’d be hard pressed to find a more secure place to store anything.

 

Cost-Effective

Office space is expensive, and the last thing you want is to do is use that space to store things. It’s even worse if you need to go down the route of warehousing, since renting any space in a warehouse can be expensive. Instead, a self-storage unit provides you with a dedicated space to store whatever you need at a fraction of the cost. Prices can start at as little as £18 per week, and we challenge you to find business storage that’s as cost effective! You really don’t have to spend much to get the space you need.

 

Efficient Warehousing

If you work from home, sell online or from a small office or retail space, then it can be difficult to find space for your stock. A self-storage unit can act as a mini warehouse while you’re getting set up and growing, before you become the huge business needing their own dedicated warehouse. This means your home isn’t going to be full of products, packaging materials and everything else, and you have the ability to move things around as and when you need them. So home can be home, and your unit can be work space!

 

So as you can see, self-storage can be an incredibly useful tool for almost any business. Because it’s so versatile, it’s the ideal way to experiment with new ideas, spaces and ways of working, to help you innovate and grow.
