E-commerce Business Trending

I expect most people have done at least some of their Christmas shopping online this year, if not all of it! The world of the e-commerce business is booming – there are hundreds of online businesses springing up everyday who sell their products successfully online.

Storing Stock

Storing stock and products can be a bit of a headache for these businesses though, particularly the smaller ones. And finding a solution beyond the garage or spare bedroom at home can be a cumbersome overhead that these start ups can ill afford. Many of these businesses can be very seasonal, selling the majority of their products at Christmas time. So, having expensive office space all year round is not a viable business solution for them. The BBC have posted this interesting article about the predicament of these businesses and the solution: //www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-25336446

Self Storage and Containers for Hire

As the BBC business article references, self storage is the answer for these fledgling or seasonal  companies. The benefits are as follows:

  • Flexible hire – means no long contracts (just 1 months notice).
  • Affordable – the one off cost per month to hire a storage facility is minimal compared to office space.
  • No hidden costs – council tax is included and there are no business rates to pay.
