If you think storage units are only for movers and collectors, you’re darn well wrong and we don’t mind saying it.

There’s this thing called business storage, and it’s pretty handy for start-ups.

Whether you need more space for paperwork and inventory or you’re looking for a way to keep your files organised and secure, a self-storage unit from National Storage could be the missing link in your business plan.

This is the part where we tell you all the awesome stuff about business storage that you probably had no idea about (did someone say free puppies?)*.

*No. No one said that. You won’t get a free puppy with your business storage unit.

 

Create a Clear Office Space

Ever tried getting stuff done in a messy environment? Sure, a couple of chocolate wrappers and empty energy drink cans aren’t the end of the world, but if you’ve got stacks of paperwork spilling over your desk, productivity can suffer.

A self-storage unit is the perfect solution for clearing those boxes of stock and piles of invoices from your office or workspace. This will give you a clear space (and a clear mind, as they say) to focus on your tasks and get stuff done without distractions or interruptions.

 

Keep Your Inventory and Files Organised

Wasting time digging through your stuff to find that thing you need? If looking for an item or file is disrupting your workflow, a storage unit can help up your efficiency.

Keeping your inventory and files in a storage unit will help make things easy to find, saving you time hunting. Make sure you label and alphabetise your items for extra organisation.

Some National Storage centres (such as Newtown and Redwood) offer a self-managed records service, where you can have your documents catalogued and stored for as long as you need. You can even call up and have your documents retrieved and delivered to you when you need them. It works the same for your stock, too; we can organise for your merchandise to be dispatched and delivered on your behalf.

 

Don’t Waste Money on Overheads or a Property Lease

Renting a warehouse or extra office space can really add up, especially with overheads. It’s also a pretty big commitment to make when you’re just starting out.

Business storage is a more affordable and flexible solution. We have no lock-in contracts and work on flexible month-to-month leases, so you only pay for what you need and can move out whenever you want – we just need 7 days’ notice.

You can use the cash you’re saving on overheads for other stuff to grow your business, like equipment or a water cooler with beer in it.

Finding your feet as a start-up can be tough, but a business storage solution from National Storage can help take away some of the stress and boost your productivity.
