3 reasons why your business needs self storage

2 Min Read

It used to be said that Britain was a nation of shopkeepers, but these days it’s a nation of small businesses, with over 5.4 million in 2015. And because every small business wants to grow and become a bigger business, space is at a premium. So if you’re an established small business, a home business taking the next steps, or even just considering turning your hobby into a business, then self storage could be for you.

Room to grow

What does your office look like? If there’s barely room to move, then a self storage unit can take the pressure off and give everyone some breathing space. Flexible self storage terms mean you can align the units you hire to business need – ideal if you’re home based and you need your living room back. Storage can be the cost effective solution you’re looking for when your business needs that extra space.

You’ll need to check the terms and conditions regarding what you can and can’t store in your unit, but they make ideal overflow stock rooms for stock intensive business. And since we also hire out office units, you can rehouse some members of staff or give yourself some space to think and plan your next business move.

Get archived

When you’re running a business, there are certain legal requirements to keep hard copies of documents for a certain length of time. Paper archives can be space invaders in a small office, so why not invest in a storage locker or smaller unit to store your document archive? It’s the perfect solution for home office users too. And if you need to digitise, why not hive off the archiving duties to their own dedicated space?
