Eight reasons UK businesses choose self storage

More & more small businesses are using self storage units to help run their business - why? - because there are significant business advantages. Below are just some of the business benefits:-

1) No business rates.

2) No utility bills  (no gas, no electricity)

3) Security. Our facilities provide 24 hour CCTV, intruder alarms, security key fob entry systems etc.

4) Affordable. A self storage unit is often much cheaper than leasing a commercial premises such as a warehouse.

5) Flexible terms. Upgrade or downsize the size of your unit to suit your needs. This is often very useful for seasonal businesses.

6) No complex leases - and no solicitors fees or estate agents!

7) No service charges - everything is included in just one simple invoice per month.

8) Extras such as mailboxes and deliveries help run the business smoothly.

Ad campaign at Lewes Football Club

We thought we'd post a picture of our visit to Lewes Football Club (The Rooks) at the weekend. We've done a 'trade swap' with Lewes FC giving The Rooks a poster on our wall opposite the train station.

The club is very close to our facility in Lewes & is one of the only clubs where you can drink beer (Harveys) whilst enjoying a match.
