Discover how self storage can grow your small business by providing extra space you need.
With entrepreneurship on the rise, more people are faced with the challenges of small business ownership. One major roadblock faced by entrepreneurs is a lack of storage space for inventory and business byproducts. If a lack of office space is holding you back, self storage can grow your small business by providing extra space without the headache of hefty overheads and long term commitments.
Here are some tips for how and when to use business storage.
When should you use a business storage solution?
Unsure whether business storage is right for you? Here are five common scenarios where self storage can grow your small business.
Expanding your office or studio space
If you’re working from home or a co-working space, it’s likely that space is limited. Rather than taking on the overheads of a full office, you can lean on self storage as a cost-effective way to maximise your space. Some co-working spaces even offer storage units so you can keep all your files and documents close at hand.
If your line of work requires equipment like tools, signage, props or camera gear, business storage is a great way to free up space. To keep your items safe, be sure to select a secure storage space that allows 24/7 monitored access and invest in insurance.
Storing retail stock
It’s tough to predict demand in the retail business. A self-storage space will enable you to manage and organise overflow so you can always fulfill customer orders on time. It can also be used to store unsold seasonal stock.
Archive and document storage
Despite the advent of the cloud, most businesses still hold considerable archives of paper documents and books– particularly in the legal and finance sectors. Documents often need to be kept on file for long periods of time, during which they take up precious office space. Self-storage can be used to stow documents securely in an offsite location until they are needed or can be disposed of.
Garage and parking space is hard to come by in Singapore, so if you need to store multiple vehicles for your business, an indoor, outdoor or covered storage unit is a necessity.
