Business owners are always time poor, do not have money to waste or are always fighting the latest drama. Success is often a direct result of how efficiently they can operate as a company. Every second saved from doing a low value task is a second that can be spent on making money, getting to know their customer or improving their offering.

How to organize your business self storage unit for optimal returns

Investing in quality products will ultimately save you, and make you, more money in the long term. Purchase proper storage containers, shelves and protectors which will go a long way for you to have a fully functional business unit.

At Hepworth Self Storage, we always recommend people ‘pack it, wrap it and stack it’. An organized storage unit, with clear containers, and a small aisle will allow you to have a set up that can be utilised by all.

In general, clear and stackable containers that are easy to view-and access-are best to be used. For bedding, clothes and other items which require airflow, you should buy boxes that are breathable instead of plastic bins.

With an organized and systemised approach, Hepworth Self Storage, can assist any entrepreneur and small business owner with all their wants and needs. Having a centralised system will allow any company to scale, eliminate costs and realise savings. We are only a phone call away.
