4 start-ups that can easily be run from storage units

If you’re a start-up or fledgeling business in the Manchester area, chances are you’re despairing at the astronomical price of space in and around the city. It’s vital that you keep your costs low but still have the infrastructure in place to run your business effectively. Self-storage units in Manchester may well be the answer to your entrepreneurial prayers. Here are four start-ups that can easily be run from storage units (and there are loads more!)…

Content writer

If you provide content for your clients, you’ll need a haven of peace and tranquillity to get those creative juices flowing and tame that ineffable muse. A self-storage unit is the perfect location. Secluded and quiet, you can set up your laptop and run your content producing empire from the solitude of a makeshift office in the heart of Manchester.

But if you’re thinking you’ll be working in a windowless, airless, cheerless bunker, think again. Our more modern workspaces have everything you need to make your business a reality.

eCommerce business

Whether you’re selling on Amazon, eBay, Etsy or your own website, if you run an eCommerce business you’re going to need space. Unless you’re happy to have your house rammed with stock, leaving you no room to relax or forget about work for a second, a self-storage unit is the only sane way to go.

With the correct setup you can easily use your storage unit to list, photograph, store, and even ship your items.

Video producer

A well-constructed storage unit can easily be transformed into a studio and used for shooting videos. A large enough unit can also house your desk and all your computer needs so footage can be edited and distributed directly from your unit.

Vintage furniture business

Storing your lovingly restored furniture in a damp garage or leaky shed is far from ideal. What better way to manage your vintage furniture business than to store them in a self-storage unit. Central locations make delivery and collection of items from local areas far more convenient. You can even set up a little photo studio area to capture your prized works of art on film and entice more buyers.

Are you an entrepreneur or fledgeling business owner looking for a base for your start-up? Get in touch with us at Storage World, we’d be delighted to give your business a home…


Secure Storage Solutions

Clean, safe and secure storage solution at an affordable price, highly recommend this place, very close to the heart of manchester, easy access in and out. Big thanks to Tricia and her team for sorting out my storage needs, very knowledgeable, professional and more importantly friendly.
Highly recommended.

A Quick and Easy Process

Quick and easy to reserve and simple sign up process when I arrived. I had under estimated my load size and needed more space which the guys on site quickly arranged for me. Very helpful and friendly staff. A recommended company

Same Day Move In

Fantastic experience. Needed storage quickly and the staff were on hand to help get everything sorted as fast as possible – was in the same day. They even helped to make sure I got the right size unit so I didn’t over pay – they could have sold me a far bigger one but wanted to make sure I got the best deal and was happy – that doesn’t happen very often! Well Done!

Ed Green-Moore

Extremely Helpful Staff

Extremely helpful staff, talked me through everything, gave me a tour of the facility, the sign up process was very straight forward, and most important excellent value for money.

Trolleys and Good Lighting

Great storage with lots of trolleys and good lighting. Lots of parking bays so it is easy to park close to the storage unit entrance. A friendly and helpful team (Anthony and Nick) that get back to you quickly by email or phone.

100% Recommended

100% recommend Storage World. The storage lockers are well priced, secure and very clean. The facility is well set up to make loading and unloading very straight forward. Jeni on the desk was so increddibly helpful and went out of her way to make sure we were well set up and happy. Thanks very much to all at Storage World and particularly Jeni!

Business Self Storage

Can’t praise the guys enough, Tricia initially found me a unit over year ago and patiently kept me up to date on availability as I was unable to move my business as quickly as I’d hoped. All the staff are friendly and helpful. A safe and clean place to work.
