Due to the economic downturn and unemployment reaching 2.68 million late 2011 job prospects for many looked bleak. So many decided to give their creative and entrepreneurial side a challenge and set up their own business. In 2013 over 520,000 new companies were registered with Companies House in the UK and a wave of new small business, e-business and ‘mompreneurs’ were born. Running a business from your own home has many benefits; you gain more personal freedom and flexibility with how you spend your time. You have the opportunity for professional growth and there are tax advantages to running your own business. Finally, you are your own boss, so the harder you work, the more money you earn, the more money you can keep! However, as small businesses begin to grow they often run into reoccurring problems – space – or lack of it. Most average houses in the UK just don’t hold enough space for an office, all your products and stock or any documents that need filing etc. That is why a growing trend in the UK is for small businesses to rent storage units or use storage to hold their business stocks when required. Storage rental can offer entrepreneurs their short-term or long-term needs and offers them the flexibility they need when running their own business. Even though it doesn’t offer comfortable office space, when considering the flexibility, short notice periods and low overheads, you can’t really blame savvy business owners who may have little cash flow being drawn into this idea.
