Hiring of a self storage unit is a clever way to solve the problems of overcrowding in your home or office that could happen as a result of the shortage of business or personal storage space. Changing personal circumstances such as a death, a divorce, a relocation, or the need to downsize can result in this problem of where to store excess belongings and furniture.

Businesses also have their reasons for needing extra storage and hiring a self storage unit can be a cost effective solution of overcoming this shortage of space, whether it is a long term or a short term solution that is required.

We will be exploring the various ways that Stop & Store Fareham can solve the problems different businesses experience with lack of storage capacity.

  • Businesses such as retailers need to order extra inventory when planning ahead for extra sales. Hiring a self storage unit to store this extra inventory will solve this temporary problem of lack of storage space. Smaller retailers in Fareham expect to see a surge of sales at certain times of the year, such as before Christmas or even before Black Friday, and definitely at those times during the year when their goods go on specials or sales. To prepare for these expected busier times, extra inventory has to be ordered in and stored somewhere before being placed on the shelves. A self storage unit is an ideal solution to this space problem. Not only is your stockroom kept clutter free, but the chances of theft of your stock is also reduced, and you will find it easier to keep control and manage your inventory.
  • Retailers aren’t the only ones needing extra storage space. If your business has signage that needs storing, seasonal fixtures such as Christmas decorations that need to be ordered early and stored somewhere, or promotional pamphlets and fliers that tend to clutter up your storeroom or offices, a self storage unit is an ideal place to keep these temporary items kept without them being damaged. By storing them off site they will not take up your more expensive retail space and can be brought out when they are needed.
  • If buying in bulk is your business method, you will need a place to store this extra inventory. Pilferage is always a concern of any business, but by having loads of extra stock lying around this problem will tend to be exacerbated. A secure self storage unit at Stop & Store Fareham will keep your extra stock safe until such time as you need it. The other solution of hiring extra retail space or warehousing for storing your stock is a very expensive way of solving this problem, so a cost effective self storage unit is worth investigating.
  • A self storage unit is an ideal place to run your online business from. You can receive items, pack them, and then dispatch them to your customers, using a courier service, from your unit. At Stop & Store Fareham rest assured that your inventory will be safe. Our hours are 8am to 6pm, 7 days a week, which allows you plenty of time to run your business efficiently.
  • Accountants and Solicitors are required by law to keep documents for a few years, and in fact, all businesses need to keep important documents such as bank statements and tax documents for long periods of time. These archives take up precious office space, but this space problem can be easily solved by hiring a self storage unit to keep these documents safely. At Stop & Store Fareham we have units of all sizes, ranging from 12 sq ft upwards, so we will be able to assist with a self storage unit that is exactly the correct size for your needs.
  • If you are a tradesman, use one of our self storage units as a workshop where you can store your tools of the trade and equipment safely. We at Stop & Store Fareham offer easy access by road making our units convenient for loading and offloading your tools and supplies such as paint, etc. This will enable you to run your business out of one of our storage units without cluttering your own home or garage up with your tools and equipment.

As you can see, a self storage unit can offer many different types of businesses a solution to their storage problems.
