Self storage is now used for many different purposes, and businesses have started to pick up on the benefits that it can provide for them. It is proving to be particularly useful in the case of seasonal businesses who are now able to free up valuable space at home or in their business until the crucial time of year.
At Loxleys Self Storage we have a range of storage units, including a 10FT and 20FT container storage units, which start at £95 per month, and are suitable for a range of commercial uses, including storing your tools and equipment.
If you run a business which either sells sports equipment or offers sporting services, then you are likely to find that this can be a very seasonal trade. This is less dependent on the weather, and instead will be dictated by the duration of things such as a football, rugby, cricket or even ski season. The times in which these sports are not being played will mean that you will need somewhere to keep your equipment safe and dry, sometimes for months at a time.
For many businesses, their sales are controlled by the weather, and so if you retail items such as garden furniture, barbecues and outdoor toys, then you are likely to need to be able to put them away during the winter when interest dwindles. Likewise, those selling blankets and warm clothing are going to need storage space throughout the summer ready for the autumn and winter months.
Christmas is one of the biggest times of the year for almost any business, which is why there are now a number of businesses who focus their whole operation around it. That means that if you have presents, decorations, points of sale or even costumes, you will need to be able to put them away for the majority of the year.
Self storage is becoming increasingly popular with many businesses as it can be a significantly cheaper option than things such as warehouses, which can cost huge amounts of money and offer more space than you really need. Unlike other business storage options, self storage offers you a great deal of flexibility, meaning that you can use them for a few short weeks or many months, and you don’t need to be tied into long term contracts.
Each self storage unit has its own access, so you can be sure that your stock and equipment is being kept safe and secure, as well as dry and free from mould or odours. Self storage units are often conveniently located, meaning that you will not have to travel far in order to get to your belongings, and you can usually access them seven days a week, at any time of the day, making it an option that can work well around you and your business.
Many small businesses start their lives in a kitchen, garage or back room, but you can quickly outgrow this. Self storage allows you to reclaim the space in your home or office in a practical and affordable way, ensuring that everything you need is kept safe and out of the way until the time of the year when you need it.
