Congratulations! You did it. You’ve started your home-based business. As for most businesses, your business most probably requires a working inventory — whether in the form of supplies, finished retailed products, or both. And as your business grows, your stock will grow as well. By and by, you may find yourself running out of space. While upgrading your home-based business to an office space is an expensive venture, getting a tenanted traditional warehouse that does not come with pre-installed lights, air-condition, security alarms, power points and fans, is even more expensive and troublesome.
At Cube Self Storage, we understand that capital and space are often limited for small businesses (especially when you are just starting) but don’t worry about that! Cube Self Storage offers a smart solution for your business storage and here are 4 reasons why you should consider self storage for your growing business:
Flexible Range of Units.
At Cube Self Storage, we have a wide range of unit sizes, and you can increase or decrease the amount of space you need subject to your business needs for short or long periods. So, if your inventory volume fluctuates significantly throughout the year, or if your business volume growth is unpredictable, you can vary the size of your self storage space to make sure you only pay for what you need. That’s a flexibility you won’t have with a long-term fixed lease.
No Long-Term Liability.
Cube Self Storage offers storage agreements from 1 month so all you need to pay for is the monthly storage charges for as long as you need the space, while you focus on the growth of your business. With Cube Self Storage, you won’t end up stuck with a long-term lease should the property no longer suit your business needs or budget.
No Renovation Cost or Time Spent.
Most tenanted warehouses will need to be renovated and when the lease is over, you may need to spend more money to reinstate the warehouse to its original condition. Self storage on the other hand, seems to be the smarter alternative for your business because you don’t have to worry about the set-up cost, reinstatement cost, and renovation period. Here at Cube Self Storage, our facilities also include maintained services such as clean common areas, good ventilation, temperature control, as well as proper security! All of which would be extra costs and headaches in a tenanted warehouse.
Allowing both a Spacious Home & Office
As your business grows, your business may end up taking over the living space of your home — not only with your products but also your documents. Some of these may be disposed of, but you may not be ready to part with some slow-moving stocks of potential value or those important documentations which you may be legally obliged to keep. As a result, it may affect how well you run your business and enjoy your time off work while at home.
