If you run a small business, there are plenty of good reasons to work from home. Cutting out the daily commute is a clear winner and avoiding extra overheads can help propel your business forward. However, working from home isn’t always the dream it’s portrayed to be – especially when the line between work and home starts to blur and your lounge room morphs into your stock room. If you’re not yet ready to move into an office, but still need to reclaim space in your home, storage might be the answer. Here are four ways that self storage can help your small business.
If you work from home, your garage is likely to become a storage saviour and the solution for all surplus stock conundrums. If your garage has been taken over by your latest shipment, you can no longer get to your car and your makeshift warehouse becomes unmanageable, it might be time to start thinking of other storage solutions.
You should think twice before transforming your garage into a pick, pack and dispatch department as it may not be water or pest proof. Depending on what you’re selling and how often you need to retrieve more stock, self storage can be a safe, cost effective and weatherproof solution for storing your goods.
Storing your stock at home is the cheapest option, but cheapest is not always best, especially when it comes to safety and security. Unless your garage looks like Alcatraz, it’s probably not worth the risk. All our facilities are fitted with state-of-the-art alarm systems and CCTV so you can rest easy with the knowledge that your stock is secure.
When it comes to small businesses, convenience is crucial. Mobile self storage is the perfect time saving solution for stowing your surplus stock. Not only do we deliver the module to your doorstep, we can also help you pack it and take it away when it’s done. Retrieving your stock is simple, we can bring it back to you or you can access your stock at our secure facilities.
