How can your business benefit from self-storage

Using self-storage can be a smart way to save money while tapping into a world of business benefits you may not have considered. But don’t just take our word for it – find out from the businesses who already use it!

We decided to ask some of our customers how they benefit from business storage to show all of the different ways we could help you. All of these comments have been taken from our online reviews on Google and Feefo, so they come straight from our customers, unprompted. Read on to find out more.

What size of business can benefit from storage?

Storage can be handy for businesses of all sizes. It can help keep costs low if you need a little extra space, but aren’t ready to move into an office. Equally, those who don’t need an office can use our space to store stock or archives. We also encounter many larger businesses with reps on the road or the need for a place to keep equipment in a certain area.

Alwyn Johnston, who uses our Wakefield centre for business purposes, said Store First is: “Great for any business. Easy to come and go 24/7 ideal for any business large or small.”

What business facilities are there at Store First?

Business customers at Store First love the fact they can access their storage units 24 hours a day. This is essential for collecting or dropping off stock at unsociable hours.

Vikki Rose, a business storage customer, said: “Really helpful staff, and excellent services provided alongside storage rental. 24-hour access makes it convenient to run a business from.”

What’s more, we have free WiFi and boardroom facilities available for our business customers to use whenever they need to.

Ruark Pepler, who runs a business from our Barnsley storage centre, added: “Amazing facilities. Free WiFi and meeting facilities. Storage tenants have everything they need to run a business from the centre.”

Mervyn Harding, one of our Ellesmere Port business storage customers, is another fan of our boardroom hire. He said: “As well as storage you can use the meeting room for free.”

Why do businesses use storage?

Hayley Booth, who uses our Blackburn storage centre, said: “I have had 2 units here for 3 years now – I store my business stock here. The staff are very friendly, courteous and I would have no hesitation in recommending Store First Blackburn whether you need a unit for business or personal needs.”

Jack Birchall, aka “Jack the joiner” from the Rochdale storage centre, said: “Had my storage unit for approximately 18 months now. Very reasonable price. Staff are very polite and friendly. Good clean concrete parking area, and the trolleys for manoeuvring your goods from vehicle to storage unit make light work of it. No complaints at all.”
