Office space v self storage

Do you need more space for your home business but also need to acquire it on a tight budget? If so, you may have an important choice to make: you may have to choose between renting office space and renting a self storage unit. Both options give your business more room to breathe. Renting office space achieves this by providing new premises for your business, whereas self-storage allows you to store your stock and equipment, thereby giving you the space you need to continue running your business from home. But which option is right for you? Should you move into a new office, or simply move your stock into self storage?

Renting office space has a number of advantages. Firstly, it allows your business to behave more professionally. It provides you with a space to meet customers and hold meetings with prospective business partners. People tend to be more willing to trust and respect businesses that have professional addresses that they can visit, so you may attract more customers and business partners once you have your own office.

Secondly, office space gives you somewhere quiet to work: you can use it to plan your business’s future and manage your business’s affairs away from the hustle and bustle of your home-life. Finally, it will provide you with a workspace for employees and colleagues when your business grows large enough to start hiring other people. In short, renting office space is ideal if you want to make the leap from running a home business to running a small (but highly sophisticated) enterprise.

However, it does have its disadvantages: you will still have to store most of your stock at home and it can be more expensive than self-storage. If you’re not planning to dramatically expand your home business or reinvent it as a professional enterprise, you may wish to opt for self storage instead.

Self storage is ideal for businesses that can be run perfectly well from home but need a little extra space to store their stock or their equipment. You can rent large self storage units at a very reasonable price, which means you can lock away your stock and your equipment without breaking the bank. Simply storing your items in a self-storage unit can free up space at home and allow your business to operate in a more spacious environment. We recommend this option for anyone who runs a home business where the business is taking over the home, but who isn’t planning to expand enterprise just yet.

Whichever option you choose, we can meet your needs with ease here at Storage World, as we offer both self storage units and office units at affordable prices that are perfect for home businesses.



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.

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.
