Why Storage Units Are Important For Online Retailers

Why Storage Units Are Important For Online Retailers

For the past few years, there has been a rise in online businesses. The reason behind this is that it is an easy and convenient business to start and operate, while the returns seem to be highly lucrative. As a retailer that deals with a huge amount of inventory, this requires you to select a space that provides sufficient or extra storage space even. Thus, you will need to do some research and careful selection before deciding on a particular space and location for your business needs.

For many, self-storages have been serving as an excellent space-cum-operations solution for business owners. Continue to read on below and understand why such storage spaces have helped online retailers tremendously.

Free up space

It’s essential to have an appropriate space for storing goods, business files and documents, basic furniture, and so on – depending on the nature of your business venture. With a storage space, you can accommodate your storage demands as these spaces let you run your business and keep any important items or inventory at the same time. Similarly, you have the freedom of upgrading or downgrading anytime when you use a storage unit.

At Work+Store, we have an array of the cheapest self-storages and storing and packing spaces, where our self-storage vary from 6 sqft and go up to 730 sqft, and our storing and packing units vary from 88 sqft onwards. In addition, if you ever feel the need to downsize your existing unit – Work+Store offers flexible service terms that allow you to convert to an extensive variety of products and services found in our various locations or our parent corporation, LHN Group, and the options include a serviced office, commercial unit, and so on.

Save on expenses

As opposed to brick-and-mortar premises, it is more affordable for businesses to opt for a storage space. This is because the overall saving cost of using a self storage helps retailers reduce costs and make great profits; due to a number of factors like all-inclusive rates, convenient locations, and so forth. As such, you can put your focus on growing your business and improving the quality of your products, services, or customer experience.

We’re known to provide one of the cheapest self storages nation-wide, so that we’re able to help businesses – be it a startup or ecommerce brand, start off comfortably. Eligible businesses can apply for our Zero Deposit Guarantee to enjoy more savings, as it entails keeping the deposit amount to use for other business purposes, such as for expansion or extra inventory. Meanwhile, selected spaces also offer all-inclusive costs that come with standard facilities like air conditioning, a powerpoint, and lighting. Hence, if you’re looking for a storing and packing unit – we’re able to help provide a suitable unit with our myriad of locations in Singapore, which consists of Kallang, 72 Eunos, 100 Eunos, Tampines, Pasir Panjang, Ang Mo Kio, Bukit Merah, Bartley, and Aljunied.

Tight security features

Besides helping to fulfil a business owner’s storage requirements, storage spaces are also extremely secured to ensure the safety of your goods, employees, and business as a whole.

We provide CCTV surveillance and accessibility via our secured access card system all day long to ensure a safe environment for both employees and items within the space. But aside from the security features provided, Work+Store focuses on offering solutions to businesses that have to juggle in between day-to-day operations and space crunch. As such, our units also help to raise efficiency levels when it comes to goods procurement and ease logistics processes, so as to ensure your business gets to provide better customer service in the future.

All in all, these are a couple of reasons why an online retailer will need to secure a storage space of a suitable size. With the right space, business needs will be easier to meet, and it’ll benefit the overall bottom line.

While it’s crucial for you as an online retailer or any other business owner to get a hold of the right storage space, so is ensuring you are constantly maintaining a safe environment for employees and customers. What’s more, with the current COVID-19 situation, it has become even more necessary for businesses to stay alert and implement all kinds of important safety measures. For instance, initially, scanning the QR codes with our mobile devices or NRICs were the norm. However, the government has recently informed the public that the TraceTogether app or token will be set as the requirement for checking in instead, by the end of December. Such critical news like these are highly important to be aware of, and as a business owner, you should constantly stay updated on the latest.
