How Portable Storage Helped My Business to Grow
I have to say, life is good at the moment. My business is currently going from strength to strength, and it is all thanks to portable storage in Atlanta.
I sell computers and various peripherals, and as any business-owner knows, there are amazing discounts to be taken advantage of when buying stock in high volumes. My business premises are extremely limited, and I was struggling to get into my office because of the sheer volume of stock I had in storage. I was considering a very expensive move to new premises when I was told by a friend to consider self-storage. I am so glad I decided to act on my friend’s advice, as I saved a small fortune on rent, and my business has grown very quickly as a result.
My first problem involved deciding how much space I needed. All of my stock was already packaged, so I didn’t want to pay for more storage space than I needed. Thankfully, the space calculator
on the Storage World website allowed me to calculate the space I needed with surprising accuracy. This useful tool has saved me the unnecessary expense of excess storage capacity, but the cost-savings I enjoyed didn’t end there!
The next problem I faced involved the location of the storage unit. I arranged with my landlord to reserve a couple of spaces in a shared parking lot, but I only had the use of them for 24 hours.
However, the guys at the storage facility could not have been more helpful. They dropped the storage container off in the morning, and they then told me just to call when it was ready to be picked up again.
After spending a very strenuous day loading my container, I was ecstatic when the guys from Storage World arrived within 30 minutes of my phone call. I explained to them that the container was full of expensive computer equipment, but they assured me that their specialised lifting equipment would haul my goods vertically – minimising the chances of them shifting in transit. I was then given my own access code to the main storage facility, where I can now access my goods as and when I need them.
Sales are now soaring due to my increased stock-holdings; however, that only tells part of the story. I can now take advantage of massive economies of scale through bulk-purchasing, and I have been able to remain in relatively affordable business premises because of the additional storage space provided by Storage World. I have 24-hour access to my storage unit for as long as I need it; in fact, it is now just an extension of my own business premises.
Thank You Storage World on Wheels!
