Running your own business is very stressful, there’s always so much going on that you have to monitor, as well as all the expenses that you have to track. In recent years, businesses have looked for alternative options to help them out. Self storage has become a popular choice for many.
We’ve put together some top ways in which self storage can help your business.
Self storage units provide a safe and secure location to store business stock, equipment, documents and much more! At RedSpot, we have a number of advanced security features, including alarms, lighting, 24 hour CCTV, access control systems and high security fencing.
2) Additional Space:
Using self storage allows you to free up valuable space, whether that’s a home or wherever your business operates from.
Many start up businesses operate from home, but when you outgrow this space you will need to consider new options.
Others use self storage to free up valuable office or retail space by storing items that are not frequently required, helping to create a more organised environment.
3) Seasonal Demand:
Often businesses experience fluctuations based on seasonal demand. Self storage allows you to store your seasonal items when they are not required, keeping them safe until you need them again. This helps to optimise space, and reduce clutter.
Self storage is perfect for growing businesses or businesses with fluctuating demand, as you can easily upgrade or downsize your storage unit as required. At RedSpot, we are always happy to help support you and your business in any way we can, and the flexibility to adjust your storage needs is just one of the ways we can help.
5) Cost Effective:
Using self storage is much more cost effective solution compared to leasing or purchasing commercial space. At RedSpot, we offer competitive rates and a short notice period, allowing you to save money while still benefitting from secure storage options.
6) Business Expansion and Relocation
If your business is expanding or relocating, self storage is perfect for storing your items. Your business can rent a self storage unit to store furniture, equipment, and any other items, ensuring they are kept safe but that you still have access whenever you need!
7) Document and Archive Storage:
Many companies have records and files that they keep for statutory purposes for specific lengths of time. Rather than having to pay for expensive managed document storage options, with additional charges for access and management. At RedSpot, you can rent a self storage unit, which allows you to arrange and manage all your documents exactly the way you’d like to.
8) Trade / Exhibition Storage:
Many trade reps have lots of samples that they need access to, but this means their cars often end up cluttered and full of stock! Using self storage allows them to keep their samples and equipment safe and secure and means you only need to carry around the items you actually need,
As you can see, there are many ways that self storage can help your business and drive growth, whilst remaining flexible and cost effective.
