At Storage World, we provide so much more than just storage space. Our facilities have much larger, purpose-built units which serve as a functional, versatile and affordable workshop space.
Leasing commercial property can be very expensive, and tying. Being locked into a contract can mean certain business decisions are difficult to make. Often businesses are required to choose premises during peak demand and carry that level of cost. Yet, we know our service allows for a more versatile alternative. If your business is fairly new or small in size, then committing to a 12-month lease for your workshop may be inadvisable as the future may be uncertain. Finding workshop space to rent short-term can be difficult and even if you do happen to find appropriate space, renting for a shorter period of time can often come with a surcharge.
That’s why at Storage World, we’ve endeavoured to create a practical, reliable and affordable solution to workshop space, by enabling businesses to carry out their work within our robust, built-for-purpose storage units. The major benefit of this is the scaling opportunity, as there are no contracts to tie you in and you’re free to move up or down in size as per your requirements, so you simply pay for the space you use, for however long you wish to use it.
We specialise in helping businesses to thrive through our commercial property solution and currently house over 300 businesses across our three storage facility sites. We host businesses and entrepreneurs from a multitude of industries and have over 100 employees from various businesses working from our facilities on a daily basis. So whether you’re a sole trader doing business on your own, or you have a team of recruits in toe, we’re happy to invite you to call Storage World the home and headquarters of your business.
If your work is manual, which is a likely prospect if you’re in the market for workshop space, then opting to use a storage unit as your creative hub helps you to keep your work away from home, providing a dedicated space to master your craft and serve your customers and clients. Having a base to work out of ensures that you’re able to expand your capacity, by having plenty of room to take on projects and service the needs of your customers in a timely manner. It also provides for a greater work life balance.
Our storage units are versatile, so whether its niche or large craft that you specialise in, whether you build, design, retail, wholesale or all of the above, or you simply just need some extra space to expand your business, then we’d be delighted to provide you with the perfect workshop space.
Why self-storage makes an ideal workshop space
Using storage space as your workshop helps to keep costs down, providing an alternative to leasing expensive commercial space, and enables small businesses to take their work away from their home and have a true base to focus their efforts. The space is completely flexible, with no maximum or minimum terms of occupancy to consider and you can take on smaller or bigger space as and when you need to, or cease operating from our facility at any time without any penalty fees.
Having this flexibility can provide peace of mind and means that you are able to simply trial having your own workshop space to determine whether it is something you truly need. Having the space to carry out your work in larger volumes enables you to scale more quickly and efficiently and ensure you can continue to satisfy customer or clients needs time and time again.
