Self Storage for Home Businesses

There is a growing number of small businesses starting in the home these days with the rise and rise of the online market place and technology.  They generally start with a few products and a website and in the beginning are managed alongside their day jobs.

Often it is not long before these start ups run out of room in their garage and they are looking for better business storage solutions. They do not want to lock into a long term lease in a factory unit, their storage space requirements vary so they need it to be flexible. They want tools and services to make stock handling easier, such as trolleys, shelving, forklift services, and receipt and dispatch services and all with no long term commitment or upfront cost.

This is where Self Storage for business has become popular. A business storage unit to suit your exact needs at the time. Only paying for the space you need, no paying for dead space waiting for stock to arrive is just one of reasons self storage works for business.

Eg – Tom has an online business and has to manage his stock levels and cash flow. Self storage works for him, taking one storage unit ongoing to handle normal trading. But In November, December when Christmas orders are substantially higher and he has to get more stock in then he can just take extra units for that time only and only pay for the days he uses. This is a lot more cost effective than renting a large warehouse space all year round.

If you are looking for business storage in Sydney there are plenty of long term and short term self storage facilities that will cater for your needs. Make sure you choose a facility that caters for businesses. Plenty of room for trucks, forklift services, and that they are able to accept or dispatch deliveries with out you being on site.

And remember Business Storage is not only for retail stock, it is also popular for business archive storage,  sample and display stock, wholesalers and tradesman.
