What Sort of Businesses Make Use of Self Storage?
The answer to this is any type of business, from the one man show who needs a place to store tools to a larger enterprise who needs space to archive records. The advantage of having a secure space where you can store your stuff and access them at such a reasonable price is the reason why so many business owners make use of our facility.
An Emergency at Work
Your business may get a large order, the stock is ordered, and it is on its way to you. But you have a problem in that you have nowhere to store it. This is enough to cause you a sleepless night, as this stock is valuable and needs to be stored somewhere secure. You may not have space at your office, certainly not secure space.
The easiest solution is to get in touch with a self storage facility such as Stop & Store Lowestoft. After you book your self storage unit, you will receive your PIN code, and you are able to access it immediately. Send the truck straight to the self storage facility where the access is designed for ease of use, and offloading is easy as possible. Once your consignment is in your storage unit you can rest assured that your stock is safe. You have sole access to your unit, and you can get on with the business of distribution as and when you need to. Self storage in this situation is a life saver. You are only committed to a month’s rental, no deposit is payable, and if you find you need it for longer than the month, it is easy to extend your lease.
Moving to a New Office
When your business is on the move and needs more office space, what could be an alternative to a costly move is to free up space in your current office by placing any stock and equipment that isn’t in daily use in a self storage unit. Often all it takes is a reconfiguration of your present space if you need additional work stations for your staff. Relocating to a new office is a costly exercise. In addition to a deposit on the new office and paying a lot of money for a removal company, there is also the disruption to your employee’s routine, the hassle of setting up your server and moving your electronics. This can lead to the interruption of your day to day operations which can be costly. Renting a self storage unit is infinitely easier and cheaper!
Storage of Documents
Every business is required by law to keep paperwork relating to their operations for a certain amount of time. Some professions such as solicitors and accountants need to keep these for up to five years so that they are available if there are any queries from the banks or the tax authorities. This paperwork can take up a lot of valuable office space. That is why many of these professionals hire a self storage unit where they can keep these documents off site but be sure that they are secure and available when needed.
