For hundreds of people in and around Manchester, home working provides a great way of earning a living at the same time as achieving a good work-life balance. Whilst some homeworkers can confine their activities to a small area of their home, for many, materials, goods and equipment can begin to take over. Whether you create handcrafted goods to sell at craft fairs or festivals, supply seasonal merchandise that can only be marketed at specific points in the year or are engaged in online retail activity and require somewhere safe to store your products, business storage is essential to prevent your home becoming swamped with goods.
Space that grows with you
Self-storage in Manchester has the advantage of providing local space that’s easy to reach – an essential requirement if you need to visit regularly so that orders can be processed using your stored stock. If you’re just starting out, a locker may be all you need initially. As business picks up and you need to keep more items on-hand to meet customer demand, it’s possible to upgrade to a larger storage space or even rent an office area. If you decide to diversify, or find that your business is evolving so that a different level of storage is needed, a flexible solution is a significant advantage.
The benefits of a trade counter
If you aren’t yet ready to commit to a shop, but still want a space your clients can visit to pick up your goods, why not consider a trade counter? Customers can pre-order using your online service, then turn up and their order will be waiting for them, ready to be collected. This gives many of the benefits of retail premises, but without the hefty price tag!
