With the economy continuing to grow slowly, and with many job industries remaining insecure, a large number of people are turning to self-employment or starting up their own business. Some people are also making this a lifestyle choice and prefer the flexibility it offers to your typical day job.
It is estimated that there were around 5.2 million small businesses at the start of 2014 in the UK private sector. This was up by almost 1 million from 2010 according to BIS, Business Population Estimates. It’s not a decision to be made lightly though and growing your own business can take a lot of time and effort. One thing that every business needs for growth though is space.
Space is essential for all businesses and whether you need it to store all of your stock, or to keep your business files safe and secure, it is something that can be hard to find. If you’re not lucky enough to have your own office space, then you will find that your stock or files end up being piled around your personal living space. Even if you do have your own office space, you may find that you are running out of space to help your business expand. You may be tied down to long-term leases or don’t want to relocate and disrupt your business at this stage.
There is a cost effective and simple solution to the problem though, with the use of self storage. It can really help to grow your business with a small cost impact. It is perfect for smaller start-up businesses that don’t have the budget to expand their operation on a large scale.

You can stay for as long or as short term as you need to, so whether you need room for seasonal stock or you’re planning for a longer term solution, there’s something to suit your needs.
