4 benefits of self storage for businesses
Many people tend to assume that self storage is only for personal use. However, they’re actually available for everyone, and that includes businesses! Self storage units bring many benefits for businesses, especially if they tend to find themselves in lots of clutter with stock or paperwork.
If you’re a business owner, you’re probably familiar with the problem of needing more room than you have. With square footage at a premium across many of the UK’s major cities, it’s not as easy as it once was to fit everything you need to operate your business into your premises. This can lead to tricky decisions: do you try to find the money to expand, or scale down your operations to fit the space you can afford?
When you use business self storage, all costs of maintenance, cleaning and security are covered within the contract, making it simple to budget and to calculate a business case for.
In this post we’ll take you through 4 benefits of self storage for businesses.
1. They keep your items secure
Leaving valuable stock items or filed paperwork in the office can pose a security risk. Storing valuables offsite in a secure storage unit eliminates this risk entirely. Storage premises often have many security systems and features in place to safeguard the premises and its storage units within. From advanced CCTV systems to PIN coded access and alarmed units, there are many advantages from a security point of view.
2. They free up valuable space
It is all too easy to clutter up an office and workspace, not only does it present health and safety risks but it can also hinder productivity. Keeping clear and organised work areas will save time and increase productivity.
3. They help to save money
The chances are that you could well be paying expensive rents on more office space than you actually need. Why rent more office space to store equipment, materials, stock and other items that aren’t needed there? Self storage facilities offer purpose-built storage units that can take this valuable space away from your office premises. Storage units can be far more cost effective due to the lower rental costs and flexibility they offer. With a wide range of unit sizes available, you can rent just the right amount of space you need and no more.
4. They reduce the risk of accidents
Keep in mind that cluttered office space is a recipe for disaster. There is more chance of an employee tripping, falling and hurting themselves in the process because of a cluttered office and workspace. This risk is dramatically increased if your business utilises dangerous and hazardous tools such as drills, saws, etc.
