Seven Benefits of Renting a Self-Storage Unit for Business Use

In this fast-changing world, businesses have also evolved rapidly. There are different types of businesses being established nowadays all competing to stay in the market as long as they could. To keep up with the tough competition, business owners must be creative and resourceful enough when it comes to formulating strategies to sustain the business. There are many innovations available right now that would greatly help any business out there. Being open-minded and careful with decision-making are some of the keys to enjoy the benefits of this world's modernisation.

One of the innovations that business owners should consider is renting a self-storage for business use. Most of us, when we hear the word self-storage, only think of it as for personal use. Little did we know, there's so much wonder self-storage can contribute to growing our business. Others may think of it as an added cost, but let me pause you on that thought for a moment as I give you the seven benefits of how self-storage can come in handy with business needs. We at easyStorage can provide you these benefits and below are the ideas on why it’s time to consider self-storage as your business partner.

1. Convenient and Flexible

These two benefits are some of the best features a self-storage unit can offer that can surely help a business no matter how small or big it is. It is very convenient to use self-storage facilities as they have many services available to make everything easier in terms of storing and moving items. Just like here at easyStorage, we have a free van to collect and return customer items. This lessens the burden of moving inventories and office supplies and stocks.

Let’s just say you are into a fashion retail business and you need to store your stocks and seasonal clothing in a different facility to free up some space in your boutique/store. We will be more than happy to assist you in moving your items into our secure facilities and back to your store by the time you need them. Just make an arrangement with our representative. We also offer packing materials and can do the inventory for you if you're too busy to do so.

Talking about flexibility, self-storage facilities usually have a month-to-month basis of payment and easy termination of contracts. Just like with easyStorage. Whatever state your business might be in, we will be there through ups and downs. You can rent our storage units for as long as you need them. You can also store almost anything as long as it will not cause hazard or damage to the facility.


2. Easy Business Expansion

A growing business is good news and expansion will come along with it, thus, the need for more office space. Instead of renting an additional office space which will incur an added cost, why not rent a self-storage to store your unused office equipment or unnecessary cabinet files as this will surely free up more space in your office to put up additional work stations for you growing staff? The monthly rent of a self-storage unit is way cheaper than a warehouse or a commercial property. And speaking of cheaper, easyStorage is the cheapest storage facility you can find in London. We are 50% way cheaper than other storage companies you can find in the city. Do the math on how much money you can save!

3. Guaranteed Security and Safety

With everything being modernised right now, self-storage is also keeping up with the innovation. Storing your important items in a self-storage can sometimes be more safe and secure than putting them all in your office or workspace. Imagine the CCTV and alarm systems being installed in each storage facility. Plus, the gates and security fences and rounding personnel actively looking after the facility 24/7. Isn't that enough protection for you?

Here at easyStorage, we greatly value security and safety as much as you value them. We ensure that your belongings are safe right from the time we pick them up at your doorstep up to storing them in our storage facilities. What’s even more amazing is all of our units are climate-controlled which will protect your items against any weather-related damages. If you are into a bookselling business, this advanced technology feature is best for you as this will help maintain the quality of your books and will prevent any hazards that are caused by insects, pests, and moulds.

4. Cost-effective

As a business owner, one of the goals is to save money as much as you can. Business is doing good if more money is going in rather than going out. Self-storage will greatly provide an advantage in saving money as the rent is cheaper than those of the traditional warehouses.

Following the more value for less principle, easyStorage offers storage unit rental rate starting from only £18.50/week. You don’t have to spend much just to get the best customer experience you deserve.

5. Handy Warehouse

Home office and small business owners will also greatly benefit from using a self-storage. If you are into an online business, self-storage can come in handy. You can use it as a warehouse for your stocks and inventories while you do the office work at home. Online bookselling or retail businesses can rely on self-storage for stockroom/warehouse needs.

easyStorage has standard storage unit sizes perfect for every business' needs. You can do the estimation on our website (easyStorage.com). We have this interactive feature - Space Guide - where you can key in the items you are going to store and it will automatically suggest which storage size is perfect for your needs. You may also opt to speak with one of our representatives for more detailed information and if you have further questions. We have several branches around the city and one might be near you. It is best to choose the nearest facility for easy access and convenience.

6. A Walk-in Archive

Self-storage can be of great help when it comes to storing your important documents. We all know that everything can be digital now but the downside of it is the susceptibility to security hacks. You may use self-storage units to store documents, customer profiles, human resources related documents, or even internal revenue documents that can occupy much of your cabinet files. With the tight security of self-storage facilities (security cameras, individual unit door alarms, and security guards), you can rest assured that your documents are in good hands.

7. Temporary Storage during Business Transitions

Change is inevitable. Renovation, relocation, remodeling, etc. You name it. These are just some of the transitions that a business can undergo. In situations like these, self-storage can be functional as you may temporarily store your items with them during a period of transition. Isn’t it a lifesaver? We at easyStorage will gladly help you with business adjustments like these as we have readily-available storage units to assist you in storing your belongings. Our representatives are available online 24/7 if in case you need quoting assistance to help you further with decision-making.

Self-storage, I would say, is as helpful for businesses. The fact that the self-storage industry is rapidly growing these days only proves how people are starting to consider the great service this industry can bring.
