Starting a new business can be an exciting, and overwhelming, time. When starting a small business, there are numerous questions that must be carefully considered. Below we list just some of the important considerations and help explain how a storage unit could benefit your business. If you can answer all of the below questions, it is a good indication you are ready to move your business to the next level.
How will I maintain a work/life balance?
When starting a new company, naturally you’ll want to spend as much time as possible on growing your business. This can, however, have a negative effect on your health and wellbeing, especially if you work from home and do not give yourself a substantial break from work. Choosing to set up an office space in a storage unit is a great way to separate your work and personal life, so you can just focus on yourself and your family when you are at home and are not tempted to continue working all evening.
How can I best use my time?
When you start running a small business, time is precious currency. In the early days of your business, you will want to focus on connecting with clients and establishing your brand. For this reason, it is better to trust everyday minor tasks, such as signing for deliveries and accepting palletised freight, to a reliable storage company such as Big Box Storage. This way you can confidently order courier deliveries etc without having to use a large chunk of your day to wait and sign for them.
Can I keep the promises I make?
No doubt, as you try and grow your new business you will contact multiple different clients and explain the product and services you have to offer. If you are successful with multiple clients, the last thing you want is to be unable to fulfil your promises due to not having enough stock or resources. Filling a storage unit with your products or business essentials will ensure you will be able to fulfil any orders that are placed with you.
Am I ready for a large office space?
One of the biggest expenses a small business can pay is the rent for their office space. Many small businesses do not need an entire office but need a space outside of their home to store all of their belongings and create a professional impression. A storage unit can be a great option for businesses between offices, or for small businesses who want to test external office options before committing to a long-term lease.
