There are many reasons why your business may need to hire a self storage unit although many people consider that using self storage is not for businesses, but rather only something for householders to consider. However if you have been running a successful business for some time you may find yourself running out of space to store important documents, inventory, stock, or in fact anything related to your business that you do not need to access every day.

You may be struggling to keep your work stations organised and your employees productive with the build up of paperwork that threatens to get out of control as you have run out of storage space at the office. Your business may have experienced rapid growth and you have had to increase your workforce, inventory and stock, assets, resulting in more paperwork and documents that need to be stored.

There is a decision that needs to be made to solve these space problems: either rent a larger space which means relocating your entire business or lease a self storage unit in a storage facility nearby where you can store these documents and extra equipment or stock. This latter option is much more affordable and will easily solve your work day storage problems quickly and efficiently.

Securing Your Business Assets

Many businesses have sensitive documents that need to be kept locked up safely. There are certain businesses such as accounting firms that need to keep paperwork and documents for a minimum of 5 years to comply with legal requirements.

This can add up to loads of documents, so it makes sense to keep them safely off site in a storage unit instead of them taking up valuable and expensive office storage space. The security systems in place in Stop & Store Fareham is superior to most office and home security systems so the risk of losing your assets to theft is diminished.

Freeing Up Valuable Office or Retail Space

A retail outlet always needs plenty of storage space for seasonal promotions, new stock, and sale stock. Keep your store looking clutter free and attractive by storing this merchandise in a nearby storage unit where you will have unlimited access to it.

If you run a retailing business where you need to receive and dispatch packages you may find that you can run this entire operation from your storage unit. There is always someone on site to receive packages, freeing you up to concentrate on other essential functions to improve your company, such as marketing.

Storing Equipment, Inventory, and Documents Not Currently Needed

Business owners are required by law to keep documents for a specific amount of time in case the authorities need to see them. It makes sense to keep them in a self storage unit so that they do not clutter up your office, but they are readily accessible in case you need to produce them.

Consider storing any office furniture or electronic equipment that you may not be using but that you do not wish to get rid of. Packed carefully, these can be stored for as long as you need to. They will remain safe and secure in storage and will not clutter up your work place.

Seasonal items from your retail outlet such as Christmas decorations, point of sale pamphlets and even last season’s fashions all need to be stored somewhere, and with retail space being so pricey, it makes sense to keep these in a storage unit.

Make Space for Expansion

This is an important reason for using self storage. If you need to expand your business by adding more work stations or equipment without moving to a new premises, look at storing any assets or documents that you do not need to access often. This will allow you to free up the space you need to expand, and also ensure that your surplus assets are kept securely until such time as you need them again.
