How storage units can improve transition periods for small businesses

Are you thinking of moving your small business from one office to another? Or, have you grown a business from your home and are now looking to expand? Taking the next step to move to a new office space can seem daunting, but it doesn’t have to be! Below we list the potential benefits and uses of storage space for small businesses.

1. More time to focus on your business

If you choose a reputable storage company, such as Big Box Storage, to store your products whilst you are between offices, you can rely on the storage facility to sign and take deliveries for you. This ensures you do not have to waste your time waiting for a delivery company and can instead focus your time and energy on other tasks that will help your business, such as networking with clients.

2. Safe, dependable storage

If you are moving from one office space to another, but your next office space isn’t currently available, a storage unit can be a safe and reliable place to store your office equipment and products. Rather than leaving your equipment unattended in your old office, or in a new office space that is not yet finished, a storage unit is a much more convenient option. Storage units have strict security and controlled access points, to ensure your goods and equipment are safe at all times.

3. Cost-effective

One of the biggest overhead costs for a small business is a building or office space. If you are unsure whether or not your business is ready to move into a large space, but working from your current location is no longer suitable, a storage unit can make a great location for transition periods, helping you to decide if you are financially ready for your next business step.

4. Help establish your business as a professional

When connecting with clients and organising freight, if you are between offices, giving your home address can make your business appear unprofessional and you may not be taken seriously. With a storage facility address, however, clients and other businesses will view you as an ambitious, professional business.

5. Flexible solutions

Real estate deals can be very time-consuming and offers often fall through at the last minute. Storage unit rentals are very flexible, meaning if you need to extend the length of time you are storing your business or office goods in a unit, you can do so with ease. This is ideal for businesses currently moving from one office to another.
