Why Self Storage is a Welcome Relief for Businesses

June 16, 2020 by Fiona Harding

Self Storage is home to thousands of essential service industries. Health Care, Fast Moving Consumer Goods, Maintenance and Technical just to name a few.

At a time when the world has been turned on its head, many businesses are adjusting operations daily. Head offices have closed or restricted access and have their teams working from home – daily routines have taken a tumble. Speaking to Account Managers and Representatives this week, a large number are still out on the road distributing goods into the field. Their storage units have proven invaluable.

Our clients rely on being able to access their goods when they need them. The consistency of having 24/7 access to their storage space has been a welcome relief. Having storage units decentralised around the country allows a business to work with space appropriate to their needs. For a couple of boxes, we have lockers or if it is 60 pallets maybe consider or mini warehouses. Regardless, only paying for space as and when they need it has enormous cost-saving benefits when compared to traditional warehousing arrangements.

Kennards Self Storage has your business storage covered with:

• Contactless operation
• 24/7 Access – your team can come and go as and when needed.
• Cost-saving benefits – only pay for the time you need.
• Variety of sizes from lockers to mini warehouses
• No lock-in contracts
• Complimentary moving equipment onsite (including walk-behind forklifts)
• All unused rent credited back on vacate.

It is not uncommon for a business to call and request additional space for a few weeks as they work through a new campaign, promotion or project. Once they have finished all unused rent is credited back.

In tough times large decentralised businesses are realising the value of an old adage. “Don’t pay office rents for storage”. Appreciating the value of leasing smaller retail or office spaces or not having one at all is proving far more advantageous with the cost efficiencies that are self storage. This has allowed them to keep things moving which has seen many businesses continue to operate safely and securely.

The nature of our business means we can run a contactless operation. Our customers lock the unit and keep the key.

Whether your business needs one storage unit, would like to decentralise or reduce storage suppliers, Kennards Self Storage has a range of products and services to use to help your business.
