If you run a business, chances are you’re always looking for ways to streamline your operations and make them more efficient. If something can save you space, effort, time or money it has to be worth considering, right? Like self storage, for example. Self storage offers a number of ways to streamline your business and improve efficiency. If you’ve never considered self storage before, let us explain how it can help.
1. Increase your profits.
How much of what you’re storing in your workplace do you need access to every day? Every week? Every month? Every quarter? For example, some of the things you’re storing might be seasonal and only needed at certain times of the year. If you didn’t have to store so much at your workplace, you would have more space for things you could use every day. Like more stock that would enable you to fulfil more/larger orders. Or new equipment that would increase your output, make your process easier or enable you to add a valuable new service. You could achieve all of this by moving the items you don’t need to a secure, off-site unit.
2. Increase your productivity.
It is estimated that the average person spends around 2.5 days a year looking for things they have lost. That amounts to a whole lot of lost working hours. A messy and disorganised workspace is one of the main problems. Self storage allows you to remove excess clutter from your work areas, so you can be more organised and keep things running smoothly.
3. Buy in bulk at a cheaper price.
Most businesses use consumables of some kind. When you buy those consumables, you usually find that the price comes down when your order quantity goes up. But if you don’t have the storage space for a large order, you could be missing out on those low prices. Self storage allows you to buy at the best price and store the goods off site until you need them.
4. Cut the cost of transporting goods.
Transporting goods can be expensive and bad for the environment, so it makes sense to reduce or avoid it wherever you can. Self storage allows you to store goods closer to where they’re needed. This reduces the distance and costs involved in transporting them. For example, you could store a large quantity of goods close to a client who orders them regularly. This will also enable you to fulfil those orders at short notice.
