You’ve been thinking about this new project for a long time. So many people visit Manchester every year. There’s the Jazz Festival, the Tatton RHS Flower Show and the Manchester Picnic in Piccadilly Gardens to name just a few. The opportunity to produce gift bags for companies to distribute is too good to miss. With a fully formed business model, together with financial backing and your five and ten year development plans, you’re ready to get started. There’s just one drawback – you can’t afford city centre office space to work in or storage space for the stock. And you certainly don’t have the space to work at home, unless your guests are going to climb over boxes of stock and files of paperwork every time they visit. It’s a big problem – one which is preventing your business start-up of a lifetime.
So it’s time to start thinking flexibly about space – thinking outside the box to find a solution. Life is changing and with it ideas about how we use space. Making an adjustment to your viewpoint would allow the entrepreneur in you to flourish. Your home is already too full with things you treasure and can’t bear to part with, things that might come in useful one day, and things the children rarely use but want to keep. So here’s a fresh idea: consider self storage as an affordable business option.
Admittedly, self storage is more often seen as a domestic solution. But imagine it instead as a space where you can store and access stock. Picture your office in the same place. And don’t end your thinking there. It needn’t just be your business space – you could still declutter your home and use self storage in the traditional way. Everything would be secure. You could extend your hired space as your business grows.
Conveniently located at the Manchester city centre end of Ashton Old Road (it’s the big yellow building that you can’t miss) is the ideal solution: Storage World. So go for it. Think outside of the box and use a flexible space to launch your brand new business.
