For an automotive business, especially those with high inventory levels – it is likely for one to encounter a lack of storage space. Particularly, if the business owner has recently set up the automotive business – it can be challenging to do inventory management and budgeting while handling many other duties.
As business owners are getting accustomed to handling the different expenses from the get-go – it is crucial to find a suitable self-storage to reduce the various issues at hand. For one, a storage unit is a practical solution to dealing with insufficient space or having enough but an over-cluttered space.
Read on to further understand the issues that storage units can help solve for automotive businesses.
High costs for space usage
Getting a separate space to store your auto stocks can be costly, especially if you already have an existing workshop to manage your main duties. However, it is possible to avoid costly expenses by getting a storage unit for the extra storage space to keep your inventory. A self-storage of the right size will help accommodate your stocks and keep them secured at all times.
To help you find a suitable storage unit size, Work+Store has self-storages available from 6 sqft to 730 sqft and storing and packing units from 88 sqft onwards. We even offer our Zero Deposit Guarantee programme that lets eligible business owners keep the deposit sum for future business expenses. In addition, as having a strategic location as an automotive business owner is also important, Work+Store is able to help by offering numerous attractive locations such as Pasir Panjang, Toa Payoh, Tampines, Aljunied, Bukit Merah, Kallang, 100 Eunos, Bartley, and Ang Mo Kio. In fact, our new Toa Payoh location is suited for storing automotive-related spare stocks. Currently, it is having a promotion of up to 2 months rent-free and 20% off units. Moreover, alongside the promotion – we also have newly refurbished units, free Wi-Fi, and ample car parking lots. For more information, do contact us. Terms and conditions apply.
Insufficient space while downsizing
When your business downsizes, you are likely to face storage issues depending on how much room you have in your existing space. For instance, if you are downsizing because you anticipate that your products’ demand will drop or save costs – then, you should minimise expenses and increase space by removing any unused files or unnecessary inventory.
At Work+Store, we offer storage units with flexible service terms to our users. One can enjoy short-term space usage and even convert their existing space to a variety of products and services within our property or even our parent enterprise, LHN Group, such as serviced apartments, commercial offices, and so forth. Similarly, we also provide standard facilities like air conditioning, lightings, and a powerpoint. Throughout our spaces, we even offer 24/7 CCTV surveillance and accessibility to keep your inventory secured and workers protected. And currently, our elevated door lock system and enabled fingerprint system offers extra security.
Arranging an overflow of inventory
It is common for automotive businesses or any other businesses to struggle with storing surplus inventory. The situation is made even more challenging when there is a lack of space in your existing unit. This may result in an increase in carrying costs, lead to poor quality and degradation, and even stock obsolescence. As such, you may need to readjust your approach to storing, declutter and remove any unnecessary items, and get a suitable self storage.
Our various self storages offer automotive businesses more storage space to keep spare parts and accessories secured. Additionally, our spaces come with standard facilities like a powerpoint, lightings, and air conditioning. With our spaces, we help to ease logistical processes and boost goods procurement, which helps in polishing customer service.
Self-storages can help solve several challenges usually faced by automotive business owners – be it the need for more space or minimising costs.
Besides understanding the purpose behind using a storage unit for your business, you should also implement the required precautionary measures to ensure employee safety. Especially since the COVID-19 crisis is at present, employee welfare is all the more important. So, to create a safe working environment, as an employer – you can enable the SafeEntry check-in system and bring in a sufficient supply of necessities such as masks and sanitisers. Through these simple yet crucial measures, your staff can store and track inventory safely and productively.
