Before you buy another shed for your home business, read this

There are many wonderful things about being your own boss – your commute is rarely longer than the journey from sofa to home office, you’re not at the mercy of a bad-tempered boss, and the coffee is not only better, it’s cheaper. Additionally, you can set your own working hours; night owls and larks can both take advantage of time differences to build client relationship overseas, and if you need an hour off in the afternoon to do the weekly shop, no one is going to be breathing down your neck.

There are, however, disadvantages, and they pretty much all boil down to one thing – paperwork. Not only are there several documents you are obliged to keep for compliance purposes, your accountant will also demand a paper trail of orders, invoices and receipts when preparing your tax return. If you’ve been in business for a few years, your office space has probably taken over the spare room, and possibly even the garden shed, and it’s only going to get worse.

You’ve probably thought about self-storage solutions before, but wondered about the security aspect of document archiving offsite. Worse still, the cost may seem prohibitive; city centre office space in Manchester would eat into your profits, and the trade-off between being affordable and spacious enough to cope with your paperwork would almost certainly make renting enough square footage for your needs a deal-breaker.

A self-storage unit is a far cheaper option; not only do you have 24 hour security provided by CCTV cameras, you can access your material at any time you need, and can develop a document archiving system that suits your requirements, either increasing your storage space as required, or safely discarding papers that you no longer need to keep. You may also find that it helps you to become more organised, enabling a proper racked filing system by date, and saving you valuable time when you need to find one crucial piece of paper.

Before you hit the garden centre and buy another shed to store your paperwork, come and see what Storage World­ have to offer you instead.

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!

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.
