3 Factors To Address Before Getting A Storage Unit

3 Factors To Address Before Getting A Storage Unit

Startups and business owners, particularly individuals with time-restricted commitments, will find self-storages to be a convenient way of storing inventory and managing day-to-day tasks.

This is due to the reason that such spaces serve as a multi-purpose space for new business owners to start their business comfortably without having to worry about space constraints or operational inefficiency. As such, this has led to an increase in businesses opting for storage spaces.

However, while it makes good financial sense to get a storage unit to store and operate your business – there are a couple of factors to address first.

Variety in unit sizes

When choosing a storage unit, it may be useful to consider a facility that offers a variety of storage unit sizes. This way, you can guarantee that you’re only paying for the space required for storing and processing. Plan beforehand and decide on a suitable-sized space as you browse the wide range of unit sizes available.

At Work+Store, we have a variety of unit sizes for our cheapest self-storages and storing and processing units, where our storage units range from 6 sqft until 730 sqft, and our storing and processing units begin from 88 sqft onwards. Our spaces are available across multiple locations in Singapore – specifically within Ang Mo Kio, Bartley, Tampines, Bukit Merah, Aljunied, 72 Eunos, 100 Eunos, Pasir Panjang, and Kallang.

Service terms

Before deciding on a particular storage unit, check through the service terms to understand the benefits you can enjoy. This factor is important in the long run as your business may grow, or you may need to downsize your space to save cost for a period of time. Either way, opting for flexible service terms can do plenty for your business.

For Work+Store, we offer flexible service terms whereby business owners get to change their existing space to a broad range of other products and services within our building or even our parent enterprise, LHN Group, such as commercial units, vending machine locations, and so forth.

Security measures

As you’ll be bringing in furniture and inventory to spruce up your space and carry out your operations, it is highly important for your selected self storage to have the appropriate security measures and safeguard your unit. Do your research on your end to identify what kind of security measures are offered by your storage space provider for peace of mind.

Work+Store offers selected spaces with all-inclusive fees, including round-the-clock camera surveillance and card access system, on top of standard facilities like a powerpoint, lighting, and air conditioning. Eligible companies will be able to enjoy our Zero Deposit Guarantee programme, which allows businesses to keep the deposit sum and use it for other business costs instead. You can find the cheapest self storages and storing and processing units at Work+Store so you can have a suitable space which fits your budget. For our storing and processing units, we strive to help ease your logistics processes and enhance the efficiency of goods attainment procedures, so you can deliver a better customer experience.

Picking a storage unit entails several factors one has to look out for, and these are a few to consider first. Once you’ve secured the right space, you’ll be able to focus on running your business smoothly.

Aside from choosing a suitable space for your business, ensure to implement the necessary safety measures for the welfare of your own and employees. While we’ll be entering Phase 3 sometime soon, it’s still crucial for everyone to stay more vigilant than ever to remain in the pink. Hence, take the required precautions like adding the SafeEntry check-in system, implement social distancing rules, and so on.
