There are many benefits to using self-storage as a business tenant, whether you work from the unit, use it for spare office furniture or document archives - using a secure, affordable storage facility can tremendously benefit your business.
Advice from Toby Whittaker Managing Director, Store First Ltd
Properly pack your items for storage
Cover up any furniture with drop cloths and dust sheets, if you need to raise your furniture to get underneath, you have free access to on-site pallet trucks and forklifts.
For document storage, put their containers on wooden pallets to keep them off the ground, and use airtight packing to ensure that no moisture gets inside.
Store First can provide secure document storage for businesses
Most business documentation often holds sensitive and critical information, but hard copy documents occupy valuable floor space. As such, you can archive your company's paperwork and records on-site. You can create an effective off-site plan for keeping and getting hold of particular documents as needed with affordable business storage solutions to keep them safe.
Archiving your files off-site can allow you the space you need in your office to grow your business. With monitored CCTV and state-of-the-art security systems, Store First provides safe storage for business documents and files.
