Self Storage For Business

Self Storage for Business use and Self Employed Trades people

Self storage units have many uses, and aside from moving house, the most popular use is for business storage. Small business owners, self employed tradespeople and entrepreneurs often find they need more space to store paperwork, tools, materials and equipment. You won’t need many of your tools on every job, and you certainly won't want to carry them around in your van every day, so a storage unit is a handy place to keep them. You can visit on the way to each job, or at the end of each day to unload as you won’t want to risk leaving it in your van overnight. By keeping your valuable items in a secure storage unit, there is less risk of equipment being stolen should thieves target your van. Peace of mind is priceless, and there’ll be no need for one of those ‘no tools stored in this van’ sticker. You’ll want to ensure your items are dry, safe, secure and you’ll need 24 hour monitored CCTV so your stock, equipment and tools are watched 24 hours a day. 

Theft of tools from vans has increased dramatically over recent years. Methods of theft range from the traditional smash-and-grab, causing significant damage to the van and use of skeleton keys to key signal hacking or the ‘relay method’. Tools are a particularly valuable part of your kit, but having your tools stolen from your work van costs more than the value of the tools themselves. The insurance excess will inevitably increase, but more immediately there’s the cost of your lost business. If your van is off the road getting repaired and you don’t have your tools to hand, you wont be able to work. Unfortunately this means lost income for however long it takes to gather the funds to replace your lost items and pay for the repairs to your van. We also do vehicle storage in our designated parking area, so not only can you store your tools and equipment in self storage knowing they're safe and secure, but you can also store your work vehicle here to keep it safe instead of leaving it on your drive over night. The area (like the whole site) is covered by CCTV which is monitored 24 hours a day. When customers come in to the office and see our CCTV screen, they really are impressed that we really have covered every spot. So why not take a self storage container and a parking space together, you can park your works vehicle in it over night when you don't need it, and park your car there through the day while you're out on a job. Have a look at our vehicle parking options, we have spaces for cars, vans, motorhomes, caravans here, spaces are limited so ask us about availability today -
