Business storage units are a crucial space for businesses of all shapes and sizes, whether they are used for documents or stock, they are ideal for keeping clutter out of the office.

For E-Commerce businesses, stock storage is vital because it allows you to keep the business running effectively through easy access to stock but also inventory management. Another bonus of dedicated commercial storage space is that you can be reassured that your stock is always kept safe, clean, and dry. This means there is less waste, and you can focus your attention on other aspects of running a business.

Read on for the three ways business storage units can help your business to grow.

1. Flexible container sizes

Businesses have different requirements depending on the time of year and where they are in their journey. Business stock storage at Store & Secure is completely flexible, so if you hit a quiet month and need to order less stock, we can accommodate that. Likewise, if you are growing, then we can find a bigger business storage unit so that you can keep up with demand.

When you are first starting up, it is hard to know what size of commercial storage space you will need. For an initial idea, you can take a look at our space guide and see what fits in everything from our lockers, all the way up to our 1000 sq ft container storage. If you need further advice, feel free to get in touch with our expert teams in Bournemouth, Poole and Basingstoke who will be happy to help.

The real benefit of flexible storage is that you can optimise your business. If you have to downsize, you will also be reducing the cost of your storage and therefore reducing expenses, helping you to get through a quiet period. Likewise, a larger space means that you can organise it more efficiently and maintain and high level of efficiency in your business.

2. Shelving and organisation

It’s one thing to have a large space for stock storage, but it’s another to have a proper organisation system. The great thing about commercial storage space is that you can adapt it to suit your needs. By including shelving, you can easily lay out each item in your inventory and make it easier to find when you need to package an order. Likewise, keeping the stock in large, labelled boxes is crucial so that nothing gets mixed up or lost. Well organised spaces allow you to send out and take in stock efficiently and although it takes a while to set up, the payoff will be tenfold.

Why not use your storage space to keep old archive documents too? By choosing a bigger business storage unit, you can have a section dedicated to keeping documents secure. Again, this keeps costs down for your business but also declutters your home or office space, so you can focus on growth.

3. Delivery management and security

How much you can fit in your business stock storage won’t be the only question you have. There will be times when you are needed elsewhere for your business and won’t be able to take in stock. At Store & Secure, we can bring in deliveries for you, all you need to do is sign for it when you come back.

As well as this, we have a full security procedure in place. Including state-of-the-art CCTV and staff monitoring it 24/7. This means that you can always be reassured that your commercial storage space is secure and that your stock is safe.
