While high street retailers are suffering in the current economic climate, online retailers are booming, and many of the big winners are small businesses that are operating from home. But what happens when your online business starts to do so well that it outgrows your home? The perfect solution is to rent a Manchester storage space from Simply Storage. A huge number of our business customers are online sellers, retailing goods through auction sites like eBay, ecommerce portals like Amazon Marketplace, and their own websites.
Our online seller customers benefit hugely from our flexible terms. If they sell off a huge amount of their stock very quickly, then they can simply move into a smaller Manchester storage unit and stop paying for space they don’t need. If they are in a position where they choose to significantly expand their range, or if they want to ramp up operations for a busy period, then they can move into a larger unit without any fuss or waiting around. It’s perfect for the rapid expansion often found in the online retailing space. Some of our longest standing online retailing customers started out in our smallest units. They’ve expanded incrementally and now they occupy some of our largest spaces. In the end, you only pay for the storage you need, rather than signing a long term contract on a warehouse that could be absolutely jammed to capacity one month and completely empty next month.
Short Notice Periods
Sometimes an online business is an experiment, and things don’t work out. You might want to move the business back to the kitchen table if things slow down. Alternatively you might experience such incredible success that you want to move to permanent, larger premises, or even your own building. Either way, it’s no problem to us. At Simply Storage you rent your Manchester storage unit by the week, so you won’t need to give us much notice if you want to move on, whether you are moving up or moving down.
Our Manchester storage units start at just £5 a week, which is an absolutely tiny amount when you consider how much the competition charge for the same type of space. In small businesses, overhead is everything, and the type of prices that we charge for storage units could significantly increase your profit margins.
No Council Tax Or Utilities
Most Manchester business storage options will require you to pay for utilities. You’ll at least have to pay council tax. Here, everything is included, reducing your overheads and increasing your profit margins even further.
Free Local Pick Up
Unlike most other Manchester storage companies, we’ve got our own fleet of vans. That means we can offer our valued online sellers free local pick up. If you’ve already got a load of stock in your home and you want to move it to one of our Manchester storage units then we’ll be happy to come and pick it up at absolutely no extra cost, just as long as you are located within a reasonable distance of our Manchester storage facility.
