Small business owners have a lot on their plates during the initial setup process. One of the most crucial and early decisions business owners need to make is the matter of a storefront. Location, costs and size are three of the most important factors that must be taken into consideration.
One of the ways to remedy the need for a large storefront is by using self storage. There are also many other benefits to business storage such as the following:
Flexibility is key to any emerging business and any decent self storage provider is willing to provide it. You might need more room on site to capitalise on seasonal trends or maybe you’re planning a renovation. Whether you need the space for a week, a month or a year or you need more/less space; Rent a Space is happy to accommodate your needs.
Security is important for anyone’s belongings and Rent a Space offers a safe environment to store all of your documents and inventory. Each unit is individually alarmed and there are CCTV cameras throughout the facilities. Top notch security is seen as a luxury to some small businesses so let Rent a Space protect your valuables for you at a fraction of the price.
Not every business can afford to have a massive storefront from the get-go. Fortunately, this problem can be alleviated by storing inventory and unessential documents off site. Self storage units are the perfect budget solution for storing company items. Rent a Space offers drive up, walk up or elevator access and all are individually security alarmed and accessible 365 days a year. They also provide trolleys and pallet jacks to help move your goods in and out as efficiently as possible.
Storing inventory in self storage is great for your bottom line. You don’t have to pay council fees or any additional costs to keep your items safe. You can pay more if you need extra space or cut back if your storage requirements decrease. It also serves to de-clutter your place of business and makes it tidier for your staff and customers alike. Also, as your business grows, having access to more space at an affordable rate is great for your bottom line.
Storing your goods in a local self storage unit definitely beats leaving them at the warehouse. Having them easily accessible in a location nearby adds a new layer of relief as they can be reached at any time of the day.
Self storage offers a great opportunity for a small business to save money and gain flexibility. As your business grows, Rent a Space is happy to grow with you and make sure the your storage needs are satisfied.
