What do you normally do when you find yourself short on business storage space?
Do you carry on regardless, piling boxes on top of boxes or filling up cupboards?
Do you make use of cheap but poorly secured lockups?
Do you load up a van and pay for business storage units at a warehouse?

Another option which is growing in popularity is to order mobile business storage units where your excess stock, furniture or documents are collected from your premises and taken to a nearby secure storage facility.

Here are some advantages of choosing this strategy:

Five Advantages of Mobile Business Storage Units

  • Free up space. Some businesses use the extra space to set up another desk which they then hire to freelancers or other small businesses.
  • Organise your office. Cluttered offices become disorganised which means lost files and poor customer service.
  • No more vans. You don’t have to worry about diverting a van and driver from their work. Or hiring a van from a rental service. Mobile business storage units are delivered to and collected from you (see our process below for more details).
  • Only pay for the units you need. Once you’ve booked space in a warehouse, you normally have to honour that cost regardless of how much space you use. With mobile business storage, the price depends on the number of units needed giving you fine control over cost.
  • Safe and secure storage. Lockups can be prone to damp and security breaches. Reputable self-storage facilities (like Space and Time) are watertight and secured by both physical and electronic means (digital CCTV, monitored alarm systems, etc.)
