Commercial self storage units are now incredibly popular with businesses as well as individuals as they can solve a lot of stock storage issues. They can provide the perfect place to keep your stock safe and secure without it costing the earth.
Self storage for business stock gives you the flexibility and cost savings that a typical warehouse simply cannot. It allows you to work in a way that suits your business, and can be much more affordable per square metre.
Container storage units can be hired for months or even years, and rolling monthly contracts allow you to chop and change as you need to. They are used to housing valuable goods, and so they can offer enhanced security and protection for all of your stock, giving you the perfect peace of mind.
Certain times of year can be particularly busy for any business, so storage units give you a great place to store season stock such as summer or Christmas items. They are great as back up storage for retail businesses, a home for ecommerce stock or even as a stock house for manufacturing.
Promotional displays and materials can take up a lot of space when they are not being used, so they can also find a safe home in your storage unit.
Alternatively, you could use your extra space for all of your admin. If you need to keep large numbers of records or documents but do not need to refer to them every day, then your self-storage unit can be the perfect place to store them.
Make sure that the unit you choose gives you the access that you need. Not only do you need to think about opening times, but also consider the width of aisles, parking, drive up access and your ability to use things like trolleys, pump tricks and forklift trucks on site. You should also ensure that your unit its not too far away, as trips to collect or drop of items can become arduous.
Think about how you intend to store your items and make full use of the height that is available as well as the floor space to maximise your space. You should contact a few different storage providers to compare costs as well as what they offer within that price.
With a monthly rolling contract at £115 per month, these smaller containers are ideal for storing infrequently used items or furniture, making them accessible whenever needed.

Try to determine what your most popular items are and organise your storage unit accordingly. Keep the stuff you are likely to need most often near the front in a spot that is easy to reach, working back to the items that are least likely to be required.
Make sure of shelving and racks within your unit to help organise it more effectively and keep heavy items at the bottom of any piles. You should also look at how you will get items to and from your unit, so think about drive up access, lifts and trolleys.
Your self storage unit should be free from damp and mould, but you still need to keep it clean and organised to help keep your business stock in good condition.
Self storage units can be extremely versatile and can help to streamline the efficiency of your business by helping to keep your commercial stock organised.
