Room to breathe: how self-storage is key to expanding a micro-enterprise from beyond the kitchen table

Dec 07. 2018

It has been well documented that there has been an increase in the number of micro-enterprises starting up with entrepreneurs setting up from their ‘kitchen tables’ and a surge in small online businesses. As the trend for home working continues and more and more people opt to be their own boss, there are many factor leading to this increasing trend.

Furthermore, an increasing number of these businesses are proving to be successful, profitable and sustainable sources of income for their owners. More and more are growing into more than ‘kitchen table enterprises’; where the business owners are running out of space on their own premises. Making the move to renting office space or warehouse space and committing to the associated contracts is often the factor that limits a micro-enterprise from developing any further.

The point of transition between working from home and acquiring additional space can be alleviated by using ‘self-storage’. Facilities like ours at Burke Bros Moving Groups’ head office in Wolverhampton, offer the perfect solution. The facilities can be used for as long as required; with the option of changing to a larger or smaller room as required; with the smallest rooms starting from the equivalent size of a phone box.

Safe and secure storage options enable micro-business owners to claim back space in their own homes and draw a necessary differentiation between home and work. Furthermore, self-storage facilities are designed with the highest levels of security in mind; reducing the risk of theft or damage to stock and paperwork etc.

Our self-storage facilities have met the demands of customers from local SMEs, public sector organisations, private individuals and students alike. We’d be more than happy to answer any of your queries about how self-storage can be the ideal solution for your micro-business. Please contact us on 01902 714555 or email sales@burkebros.co.uk.
