Whatever the issue running your business from one of our storage units really can be the answer. You might be surprised how many and the variety of business that run out of a storage unit.
Storage Unit Benefits
Office space can be very expensive, have lots of additional costs that you need to factor and often ties you in for a lengthy period of time. The beauty of our units is the flexibility and competitive prices we can offer.
You benefit from all of our on-site facilities including:

A major plus point is that we also include utility bills and contents insurance.
We also have a minimum rental period of just 4 weeks. If you find your business expands quickly we can quickly and easily review your unit size and move you to a bigger unit where required.
We will help you kit out the storage unit so it’s comfortable for you to work in and you will have electricity and heating included. You can absolutely run an office based business from one of our storage units.
In addition, many businesses use our units as storage for large items, extensive stock and valuable tools.
If you’re a tradesman with lots of tools and expensive equipment it is risky to leave it overnight in your van. Using a storage unit allows you to keep your equipment safe – we have extensive security measures at all of our sites. It also frees up premium space in your van or garage.
Maybe you’re an eBay or Amazon seller, working predominantly from home but your stock is taking over the house. Using a self storage unit means you can manage your stock effectively and efficiently and also manage and post orders from it.
Many tradespeople use tools which are dangerous. If you have children and pets at home keeping these tools safe and away from them is imperative. Using external storage takes this worry away.
