As humans, we all tend to over complicate things. This couldn’t be truer than when it comes to business and business growth.
It is an extremely exciting time starting out and turning your idea or passion into reality. So many cottage industries start at home, spreading from dining table and work tops into the boxes under the bed and the spare room wardrobe. It is a constant reminder that anything is possible and a reality check that “we really are doing this”.
Moving from a home-based industry to any kind of warehousing can be daunting and very costly. Business rates, rent, telephone lines, security and utilities can all add up and could eventually eat into the profit of a small start up business.
However, there is an option to keep it simple and cheap. The solution is storage at Store Store Store. The storage is flexible in that you can use as much or as little as you want. The volume of space you require can be suited to your needs so it is not cluttering up your home. You can also opt to take on additional space during busy periods and likewise less space in quieter periods. Along with the storage there is also the business hub, which is an area where our customers can log in and connect with their customers.
Here is what some businesses that use our storage say and why it is the ideal solution for them;
“We use Store Store Store during the winter months to store our tents, furniture, bedding and towels. Basically, all the things that make our tents beautiful. In our first year of business we stored the tents in the garage and everything else was literally stacked high in the spare room (our poor visitors!). Every time I looked at the tent and all the bedding that went with it my mind would be on work, so it was a constant reminder. Having it at Store Store Store is ideal for me. I need a lot of space for storage during the winter when I take most of the tents down. Then during the summer, I keep my spares in just a small unit so I can go to it when I need it. I can’t imagine ever needing a full on warehouse of my own, so this set up is perfect for me”
“I use one of the containers and I also store a couple of my vehicles in the yard. It is ideal for all my equipment and spares and it keeps my own garage free for my own personal gear. It means I can actually use my drive at home for me and the family and it’s not clogged up with works vans.”
“We keep a stock of tyres in a container. They are there when we need them, so over the winter we pretty much forget about them, but are easily accessed during the season. We work with Geoff Steel Racing just across the road, so it couldn’t be more convenient. We also have a lot of spares in the container. We often buy and sell parts, so it is also an ideal place to keep the odd bumper or splitter until the right buyer comes along.”
