3 Reasons Why Your Startup May Need A Storage Unit

When you’re trying to turn a business idea into reality, you will also look for ways to cut costs as much as possible.

This is why some people use their own homes as a work and storage space – whether it’s their kitchen, dining room, living room, or bedroom even. However, as convenient as one’s home may be – it doesn’t necessarily offer the most conducive environment, and may even mix up your business inventory with your personal items.

As such, certain businesses have to find budget-friendly spaces in order to carry out their business operations smoothly in an affordable manner. One alternative way that many often seek these days are self-storages. But why is this so? How does a business actually benefit from a storage unit? Below, we have compiled a few key reasons why.


A self-storage comes with complete protection and security as the best safety solutions have been implemented to ensure the well-being of employees and inventory are safeguarded securely.

If you’re looking for an affordable space which bears your safety in mind, we have the cheapest self-storages and storing and processing units that are able to help you achieve this goal. They share two common features – round-the-clock camera surveillance and accessibility. Moreover, Work+Store offers Zero Deposit Guarantee, so fresh startups and other businesses that are eligible for this program can have a smooth-sailing setup process without having to worry about additional costs. Those who are using our units can also enjoy attractive terms where they can opt for a short or long term service period, or even convert their current space to a broad range of other services or products within our property or our parent organisation, LHN Group, which consists of vending machine locations, serviced apartment, and so on.

Improved and secured storage capabilities

As a startup or any new business owner, it’s important to document all clients’ accounts and any other crucial records related to your business finances. Especially due to tax reasons, it’s even more important to keep such documents for a couple of years before discarding them. Hence, our self storage will be up to the task with tight security offered. Moreover, the same space is also useful for replenishing stocks easily while managing other everyday tasks at the same time.

Work+Store doesn’t only help to fulfil business requirements with the cheapest self storages on hand. We also have work and storage spaces – fitted with basic facilities like lighting, air conditioning, and a powerpoint.

Enjoy more space

Space crunch is always an issue with startups. Those with limited budgets usually do not have ample space at their disposal – as such, they may have to consider using storage spaces to store their essentials and carry out operational tasks. This allows startup owners to manage operations at a low cost and use these units to work and store at the same time.

Meanwhile, our storing and processing units can be used for multiple purposes, such as to increase the efficiency of various operations, from product packing to fulfilling orders. At Work+Store, our extensive range of unit sizes are aimed at accommodating your business needs: self-storage units start at 6 sqft and go up till 730 sqft, while storing and processing units range from 88 sqft onwards. We also help to support your business even further through our work and store concept – so businesses can simplify logistic and goods acquisition processes and improve their customer experience.

Having a storage unit makes it easy for startups to begin business at a low cost. With all the perks of having one, startups can focus more on other core aspects of their business and run their operations more smoothly.

Now that you have a better understanding of how storage units may help your business get started on the right track much easily, it’s also good to be aware of how COVID-19 is impacting the economy and possibly your business. As such, you need to make the appropriate safety implementations, so you can be more assured of you and your employees’ safety. Then, you can focus on starting your business and growing it!
