During the Covid pandemic our working lives have changed beyond recognition. Many people have reassessed their job, some have lost their jobs and many have re-evaluated many aspects of their lives.

Working from home or making the choice to start a business from home has been spurred from the realisation that so much time is spent on long commutes and being away from family. Although starting a business during current times might seem odd to some, it is a great time to take stock and think about what you want to achieve in your life. Maybe you’ve been considering it before but the time has never seemed right.

There are many things to consider when running a business but premises and warehousing or stock facilities might be a high priority. Many people have never considered using a self storage unit for running a business, indeed many people don’t even realise it’s possible. However, there are some amazing reasons why business self storage might be perfect for you.

  1. Flexibility

Self storage units are incredibly flexible. Our units start at the size of a small garden shed up to large commercial units so you’ll find the perfect size for you with no wastage and no paying for something you’re not using. Remember if you scale up and need more space you can simply move into a bigger unit quickly and efficiently. No need to source new premises, organise new contracts and move everything potentially miles away. We even have on site forklift trucks so you can very easily move to a bigger unit should you need to.

  1. Office Facilities

You’ll want to be sure that you have access to all the traditional utilities associated with business premises and you can be. At Easy Access Self Storage our business customers have access to fax and copying facilities, a unit mailbox, meeting rooms, receiving and dispatch services, and WiFi.

  1. Opening Hours

Need access out of traditional working hours? No problem. All of our customers receive a personal PIN for our secure entry points and we don’t have any limits on when and how often you can access your unit. Our self storage units are accessible 24 hours a day 7 days a week. But don’t worry this doesn’t compromise our security. Here are some of our incredible security features:

  • Unique PIN code entry to electric gates armed with intruder alarms.
  • Secure perimeter fencing.
  • Fully alarmed and floodlit.
  • 24/7 digital CCTV.
  • 24/7 motion detectors.
  1. Overheads

When costing commercial premises it’s important to remember any additional costs you might need to pay, for example business rates, heating and electricity. All costs are included in our fees so you know exactly how much you need to budget.

  1. We’re Still Open

Throughout the pandemic self storage units have remained open and our customers are able to access their units as normal so you don’t need to worry about the impact closing facilities might have on your business. We of course have made all of our facilities Covid safe and continue to follow all government guidelines. You can be sure that our members of staff will still be around but they will wear masks and we have implemented hand sanitising stations for everyone’s safety. The safety of our valued staff and customers remains our greatest priority.
