Files, old furniture and one-off promotional material are the eyesores of the modern office, with many companies wasting a great deal of space storing items they don’t immediately need. It is a common misconception that self storage rooms only serve the residential needs of those looking to securely store their possessions whilst they are away, in transit, or simply if they just don’t have the room at their own homes. More and more, however, many businesses up and down the country are using self storage rooms to battle the lack of space found in the modern working office.
WHY WOULD A BUSINESS USE A SELF STORAGE ROOM?
There are many beneficial factors involved when a company uses self storage rooms, starting with the price. If you have furniture, files or other company assets you need storing, renting an office that holds all these could easily work out three times more expensive than a self storage room would cost you. Savings like that allow for companies to invest their money into the areas of the business that really need it.
WHAT CAN BUSINESSES USE SELF STORAGE ROOMS FOR?
The simple answer is “anything”. The needs of small and large businesses naturally tend to vary, as do the options for self storage rooms. Large or small, and found in a whole host of locations across the country, a storage room can be used for anything from furniture to files, promotional material to seasonal goods, for a fraction of the price than that of an office space.
As many companies are all too aware, it is a legal requirement to keep and safely store certain documents for a number of years. These can often be hefty files taking up an awkwardly large amount of space, but with the correct use of a self storage room, they no longer have to be a costly burden on any business.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
Aside from saving on cash, self storage is a flexible alternative to renting an office space. With short to long term options available, a company can tailor the storage contract to their needs, with minimum hassle. Upon booking the self storage room, the keys are yours, as is the space. This means that the available space can be put to much better use than that of an office. It’s true that you wouldn’t waste money unnecessarily, so why would you waste extra office space?
