How entrepreneurs are using self storage to empower their businesses

More and more Britons are taking the plunge and becoming self-employed. What used to be seen as a risky business is now a major force in the UK’s economy, and individuals working for themselves are finding more inventive ways of getting ahead. At one time, it was incredibly difficult to work for yourself. Between the difficulties of marketing and the expense of space, small business owners were crippled by costs before they had the chance to start. But the modern computer age and many advents in technology and conventions of trade have changed all this. Businesses are run from kitchen tables and spare rooms, rather than costly offices, and entrepreneurs are using smart storage to empower them in their businesses.


The days of needing a second mortgage or bank loan just to rent the space to store your stock are long gone. Lack of storage space used to be a major issue for small and medium-sized businesses, as storage capacity tended to be big; big spaces for big businesses with big price tags. This was a major stumbling block for entrepreneurs looking to strike out in retail, mail order, or any business that required the storage of physical products.

Many people turned to home storage solutions, but these are dicey – having so much stored at home is cumbersome and disorganised, and blurs the line between a work/life balance. It was stressful, often caused unforeseen difficulties, and frequently contributed to businesses going under. But now entrepreneurs are using alternative storage solutions it’s a different ballgame altogether. Smart storage has bred smart entrepreneurs, and business owners are now leveraging the power of smart storage to their advantage, paying low rates for small spaces that can be packed with a lot of stock.

Self-storage solutions offer the ability to secure stock in a safe and easily accessible environment, with seamless vehicle access and helpful staff on hand to make life as easy as possible. The rise of internet shopping and fast pick up and delivery has also supercharged the process, allowing anyone with wifi and an Etsy or eBay account to run a profitable business from their laptop or tablet, while the physical products they sell are kept safely out of sight, at a location that ensures efficient delivery when orders are placed.

The entrepreneurial life is on the rise and smart storage solutions in Manchester are happily feeding the tide. For your storage space, contact Storage World – we’ve recently expanded!

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.

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.
