Available space is a big concern for small business owners. With rental rates soaring high, rental storage spaces are becoming popular in Singapore. Read on to know how can small businesses benefit from them.

All startups and businesses differ in their specific needs and requirements. However, storage needs are a common concern for all small business owners, regardless of their business type. Especially when considering how expensive owning a workspace or opting for a larger workspace can be – many small business owners are starting to explore the idea of alternative workspaces – such as a self-storage.

Simply put, many businesses can use the extra storage given to its full potential in many ways – and below we will show you some of them!

Organised inventory

One clear benefit of additional storage for startups is better inventory management. This is especially true for businesses that require a seasonal surplus of inventory, or those who need to hold off old stocks. With a storage unit to manage this kind of inventory – the business owner need not worry about the stored items. The added space gives the freedom of moving the items according to one’s need and can be used as temporary storage to store such items when not in use.

If you’re still looking for an alternative workspace with more space – Work+Store offers the cheapest self-storages ranging from 6 sqft to 730sq ft. You can choose a suitable unit based on the amount of space you need to manage your business.

Safekeeping of documents

Usually, most businesses will make sure to keep a soft and hardcopy of documents – such as legal papers, contracts, financial records and ownership documents – in case of unforeseen incidents. However, regardless of whether you are a startup or medium-sized organisation – you will still have to ensure your workspace has tight security and convenient accessibility so you can safeguard important documents and access your premises whenever you wish to.

And that’s when self storages come in as they provide all of these aspects in one place. At Work+Store, our storage units come with round-the-clock camera surveillance and accessibility. This helps to ensure your inventory, office equipment, and your staff’s well-being are properly looked after no matter the time.

Value for money

Buying your own workspace at the very start can be costly – the same goes when you choose a larger space for more storage. This is where self-storages are extremely useful and cost-effective because one can choose the size of the storage unit to fit their budget. Additionally, it’s a two-in-one package where you get a work and storage space in one location. In that way, you don’t have to spend additional expenses on getting a separate storage unit.

Work+Store offers the cheapest self storages, which allow you to save and spend on other office expenses. We also offer flexible lease terms so you can upgrade or downsize your workspace whenever you desire. Our spaces come with short lease terms, and you can opt for contract transfer to other services or products within Work+Store, or even our parent company, LHN Group – such as serviced offices and apartments, commercial and industrial units, event venues, and vending machine spots. This means that you can upgrade or downsize unit to fit your business requirements. On the other hand, our workspaces also let you save money with its included basic facilities – air conditioning, lighting, and a powerpoint.

Boost employee productivity

With more storage space available, it also means that you can make room for more storage furniture. As long as it within your financial ability, you can bring in cabinets, drawers, bookshelves, and so on. All these will keep your workspace neat and organised and improve the office environment. In turn, this positively impacts your employee productivity as there is no clutter or mess lying around.

Better employee productivity also means that overall business operations will improve as well. As you combine work and storage space together, logistic procedures and goods procurement can be better managed to boost customer satisfaction.

Whether it’s for storage or cost reasons – a storage unit is an ideal option for small businesses and startups. Try it out for yourself and help your business start off on the right track.
