Why storage is an essential for small businesses
Recent years have seen the upsurge in new start-up and micro-businesses and particularly in e-commerce companies. Sites such as E-bay have grown in prominence, whilst many traders have decided against retail space in light of steep high street rents and business rates.
In particular, for companies that have been started from home, the average household does not have enough storage space to accommodate a growing business. Thus, there is also a notable trend in small businesses renting storage units to house a variety of business-related items from surplus stock to promotional items or paper work.
Investing in self-storage, can act as a cost-effective alternative to having to invest in larger premises. Our self-storage facilities may well prove to be a cheaper option than some of the expenses of mortgages, rents and the cost of overheads incurred from owning or renting your own larger premises. Furthermore, our facilities offer flexibility and enable businesses to rent however much space they need to meet short term and long term requirements with short notice periods. This is particularly pertinent for seasonal businesses and may prove to be a more cost-effective option than renting an entire warehouse all year-round.
Our site in Wolverhampton also offers a high level of security. Many small businesses and traders are opting to use this type of arrangement to keep their items in a safe place rather than renting warehouses with a lower level of security or leaving items in their own properties, which are then unattended during holiday periods etc. Our premises offer dry and clean facilities which are also a more preferable option to stock etc being stored outside and becoming susceptible to weather damage.
We have many small businesses and traders making use of our self-storage facilities and would be very pleased to discuss this further with you.
