Particularly with the increasing home and e-business market, self storage can provide a flexible convenient way to store records, product, marketing material or any business material.
The advantage of self storage is that you can increase or decrease the space you use as often as you like. In most circumstances the cost of self storage space is more economical than leasing commercial or industrial property for storage and many centres offer ancillary services for their commercial customers like the use of — facsimile machine, photocopy, phone, email and meeting rooms..
Why have sales reps travelling wasted distance coming back to base to pick up product or samples, when they could be picking them up from a local self storage facility. Many major companies such as British Tobacco and many pharmaceutical companies have realised the benefits of having their sales force use local self storage units that they can deliver product directly for pick up, while the reps are travelling in their area.
Self Storage is also ideal for all your document and data storage. Whether it be reference documents, archiving, accounting records or digital data backup, self storage is your safe, secure, accessible off-site storage solution. Once again access is the key, while you might not need these documents every day, you have the peace of mind of knowing that whenever you want them, you can access them at your leisure, without having to wait. Some centres even offer document pick up and retrieval for you.
