You may not like it, but for most business owners there comes a time when you need to cut back. It may be the recession, a seasonal downturn or simply bad luck, but when you have to downsize, it’s never fun. Fortunately, you can use self storage to avoid having to dispose of hard-earned business assets at fire-sale prices.
Why Has Downsizing Become So Common?
Since the early days of the 2008 financial crisis, businesses of all sizes have been under increased pressure. For many, reduced cash-flow coupled with an inability to borrow money has lead to failure, while others have anticipated the difficult trading conditions and adjusted the scale of their operations to suit.
The upsurge in online buying and selling has also contributed to the level of high-street failures and cut-backs, with the same general result – a need to reduce costs and streamline operations. For many businesses, this means fewer staff and smaller premises, and often results in the disposal of stock and equipment that no longer has a home.
In practice, this often means that when you are in a position to grow again, you’re unable to do so without replacing those assets that you disposed of at rock-bottom prices. At Reading Storage Solutions, we regularly talk to business owners facing tough decisions who desperately want to keep their companies alive.
How Can Self Storage Help My Business?
For many businesses, a modestly priced self-storage unit can solve a whole load of problems and take the strain off your shoulders. RSS offers practical, affordable storage facilities for short-term or long-term needs, and we allow you the flexibility to upsize or downsize at short notice as your requirements change.
If you simply want to move the bulk of your stock off site in order to save money on business rent and rates, then commercial self storage is the answer to your prayers. All our units offer seven-day access during normal opening hours, and there are only a few sensible restrictions on the type of goods you can store.
We offer low-cost, monthly payments for businesses that may be short of cash, allowing you to spread the cost of storing your property over the full term of your agreement, and you’ll be pleasantly surprised by our pricing. You can also drive right up to your unit for easy loading and unloading – we accommodate cars, vans and trucks.
