Many people have made the decision to work for themselves; after all you’re not going to get rich by working for someone else. In many ways it’s much easier than it was in the past. Years ago, if you wanted to set up some type of retail company or business then you had to hire premises or office space that would be visible to your potential clients. The only other option open to you was advertising in the local newspaper or maybe having advertising leaflets printed to distribute to likely customers.
Of course nowadays with almost everyone having access to the internet, you don’t need to go to the expense of renting a retail unit and can run a successful business from the comfort of your own home. This can however bring about another set of problems; it’s fine if you are just providing a service for your customers, but what do you do if you are a retail company? What do you do with your excess stock?
You are lucky if you have a spare room big enough to accommodate your business, but not many people are in this position and need to make alternative arrangements instead. This is where a self storage warehouse can be a huge help. We’ve previously used The Self Storage Warehouse who offer self storage in Preston for our businesses and it’s a fantastic option! It can mean the difference between running a well organised and successful business or a badly run unorganised one.
Self storage units come in a variety of sizes so to get the best size for your particular requirements, it’s maybe a good idea to have a chat with the warehouse first. They will have lots of experience and will be able to provide some good advice to save you money. You’ll also be able to relax knowing that your stock is being stored in a secure alarmed facility with 24 hr access for your convenience. It’s certainly an option worth consideration.
