The number of small and medium-sized businesses using self-storage is increasing. We’ve seen companies from one-man eBay sellers to street food vendors, to builders, retailers, construction firms using our units. There are many advantages, from cheaper insurance to not having to pay business rates, to knowing that whatever you’ve stored is safe and secure whenever you need it.
Lots of small businesses start off based from home. Which is great from a commuting point-of-view. But it’s not quite so good from a taking-up-space point-of-view. It can cause friction with your loved ones if your work starts to take over your home. So, make sure you give your business the best chance of success by making sure you keep business and personal space separate.
Here are some other ways you can benefit from using GTW storage:
If your business has seasonal fluctuations, or if you’re required to store a lot of equipment at, say, the beginning of a job, then self-storage will be great for your business. If your business is busy in the summer and quieter in the winter, you can simply reduce the size of the unit you rent with us and make savings when you don’t need so much space. There’s no long contract tie-in with us, so you can increase or decrease the size of your unit as it suits you.
You don’t have to pay business rates with a storage unit, nor do you have to pay council tax for it either. Our costs include VAT, but if you’re VAT registered then you can claim that back too. Our units are all covered by CCTV and intruder alarms, and we have excellent fire safety measures. So, you might even find that your insurance costs go down as well.
You can access your stock or equipment when it suits you. So, when you don’t need it you can forget about it, without having to be reminded of it every time you open a cupboard or go into the spare room.
Give yourself a little more peace of mind by making sure your stock or equipment is always secure and that it will always be in the same condition you left it in. With our security and fire safety measures, you’ll not have to worry about anything.
