16 Feb How can Self Storage help you grow your business?
When you start a business, your aim is to get some customers, generate revenue and grow. Growing businesses are always looking find more suitable space and expand.
However, looking for a space to sustain your business can be hard, and a lot of questions come with it. What sort of space do I need? How big should the space be? Where should I look?
Self-storage is a great option for any business, regardless of the sector they’re in. Charities, marketing, events, weddings, gyms, there’s room for everyone in a self-storage room. Renting a self-storage unit has become popular among many businesses in the UK, especially over the last couple of years.
But how can self-storage help you grow your business?
First, there’s plenty of choice and it’s easy to upgrade. Storage facilities have many different unit sizes, starting from small lockers. The size goes up to 200sqft units, and includes containers and everything in between. If your business is doing very well and you’re outgrowing the space you’re renting, it’s very easy to rent a bigger room, or to use a couple of lockers if needed. Basically, you’re only paying for the space you need.
Security for your goods
Storage facilities like Hills have 24/7 CCTV and are accessible only with a pin pad code meaning that only authorised personnel and customers can access the facility. Your room, however, would only be accessible by you with your own padlock, making it secure and private. Storing your stock or equipment in a storage facility also means you have easy access to your room, at whatever time or date suits you, with no restrictions.
There’s plenty of office space opportunities
We’ve talked about containers, lockers and storage rooms. But self-storage companies also offer office and meeting space. Whether you’re interested in turning a storage room in an office, or in hot desking, storage facilities can help you either way. If your home office has become too small but you’re not quite ready to make the leap to a commercial property, self-storage units can provide a happy medium. Available in a variety of sizes to accommodate your needs, they can be made into a productive workplace with minimal overheads, so that you can expand without overreaching. Renting a meeting room means that you only pay for the hours you need to use it for, unlike a traditional office space.
