When starting a new business, every penny counts, which is why so many new companies start at home. Working from home can save you money, but you can quickly run out of space, especially with the whole family spending more time at home these days.

Renting or outright buying an office space is a costly venture, and in these uncertain times, it can be risky too. A great option is to use a self-storage unit as an office space, as they offer a low-cost alternative without a long-term contract.

At Kangaroo Self Storage, we believe in supporting start-up businesses and so we offer business storage in EdinburghGlasgow and Dundee. Many businesses have set up shop in our storage units, as they provide many benefits, including:

  • Wide variety of unit sizes
  • Rental flexibility
  • Cost-efficient
  • Friendly service
  • Secure access
  • Accept deliveries on your behalf

Wide Variety of Units

At Kangaroo, we offer a large number of storage units at our centres for you to choose from, which are ideal for your needs. We know that every business has its own size requirements, so we have units that range from a small 16sq ft locker to a 500sq ft unit.

You can take a look at our full range of unit sizes to figure out which one is right for you and your business.

With a wide range of units to choose from, Kangaroo can make the running of your business just that bit easier. Working from home is great to start with, but space soon becomes scarce, and your stock will encroach on the dining room table or kitchen counter. Keep your home life and work separate with cost-effect storage.

Our storage units are dry, clean and modern, allowing you to separate your personal and professional life with ease. If you need to meet clients or work partners, they can also be a great option, as they can help you present a professional front to your business. Whether you’re a tradesperson or an eBay seller, you will find what you’re looking for with Kangaroo.

Complete Flexibility

There are many advantages to choosing business storage with Kangaroo and using a storage unit as an office. For starters, you will have complete flexibility from day one, which will be incredibly important to you as a business owner.

When your business starts to take off, Kangaroo makes it super easy for you to scale up to a bigger storage unit. The same applies to downsizing, whether to cut costs or because it suits your business better. Whatever your needs or reasons, you can switch to a smaller or bigger storage unit completely free of charge.

We have flexible agreements starting at just seven days, so you can rent for as long as you need and no longer. You can also take advantage of our special offers such as six weeks of free storage when you rent for at least twelve weeks.

Cost-Effective Service

Another benefit of choosing Kangaroo is that we have no business fees or hidden costs.

Whether you are a start-up or a well-established company, we offer a unique and tailored service to all our customers that provide you with cost-effective self-storage.

We do not charge business rates because we want to help you grow your business instead of spending too much money on storage space. You also won’t have to pay utility bills, and we don’t charge security fees.

Using our storage units as office space is a cost-effective way to run your company that you should consider today. We are on hand to answer any questions you might have, so don’t hesitate to talk to us if you would like to know more about our business storage options.

COVID-Secure Stores

We want to support any essential businesses and customers that are classed as key workers. Kangaroo has remained open throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Health and safety is incredibly important to us, and we know it’s important to you too. Behind their masks, our staff are still providing the same friendly service you can expect. We ask that you also wear a face-covering when in-store and use our sanitation stations in the loading bays.

Rest assured that we have implemented cleaning routines throughout the day to ensure that the most commonly touched areas are regularly sanitised. This includes:

  • Communal door handles
  • PIN pads
  • Lift buttons
  • Reception desks
  • Toilet flushes
  • Card readers
  • Chair arms

We ask that you also adhere to the social distancing measures currently in place.

Secure Access

The security of your business assets and belongings is crucial. Kangaroo has 24-hour security systems in all our stores that allow us to monitor the facilities and control access. Each site has access door entry controls, allowing us to monitor who has access and when, as well as security alarms that are active throughout all stores.

Additional Advantages of Choosing Kangaroo Self Storage

We pride ourselves on offering top-notch service to all our customers, which is why we provide additional benefits such as:

  • Pallet trucks, trolleys and forklift trucks –this machinery is at your disposal to help you to move things around with ease (and we do not charge you extra for using them).

Contact us to learn more about our services and how we can help you run your business from a self-storage unit.

Packed up Office
 

As the UK lockdown starts to ease and businesses can get back to operating fully, you’re probably making plans to ensure that you’re premises are compliant with the latest guidelines. Here is where you could benefit from flexible business storage. Surplus furniture in your place of business may make it tricky to ensure that customers can adhere to social distancing measures, so self-storage can help you out.

But regardless of whether the pandemic is affecting your business, there are several things you can do to prepare to store your items in self-storage and maximise the use of the storage space.

Double doors to larger rooms

Research the Ideal Storage Facility

Before choosing a storage facility, do some research. Take into account their location, as the closer it is to your place of business, the more time and money you will save. With the option of self storage in Edinburgh, self storage in Dundee or self storage in Glasgow, we can ensure that there is a storage facility available to you in Scotland.

Security of your belongings is likely to be your biggest concern, which is why we employ the best security strategies and technologies to ensure the safety of your items while you store them with us. We have CCTV cameras in operation 24/7 in each of our stores, as well as an access keypad to enter the facility. Your storage unit will have your own personal padlock, so only you have access to it.

You don’t want a facility that doesn’t make security a priority, but you also don’t want to spend an extortionate amount. That’s why Kangaroo Self Storage provide extremely competitive rates for self-storage, as well as a number of special offers and deals to ensure that you are getting the best possible price for your self-storage needs. Get a quote today to find the right unit for you.

Another important consideration is the size of the unit. Too small and there won’t be enough space for all your belongings, too big, and you’ll be wasting money. That’s why we have a wide range of storage facilities from just a locker to a 500ft sq unit. Our experienced team can advise you on the right kind of size to choose.

As well as a number of promotions and competitive pricing, we also offer a free pick up service that you can take advantage of, making moving your belongings even more hassle-free. And should you need to change the size of your unit at any point during your stay, you can do so free of charge.

Get Organised in Time

As a business owner, it’s essential to be very organised, including how you prepare to move your items into storage. Sort out your furniture and/or equipment and decide what you will need to keep in the office and on site, and what you will need to clear out so you can adhere to social distancing guidelines. This will help you determine how much bubble wrap and boxes you are likely to need to protect your items during transit.

Consider how long you want to keep your items in storage so you can take advantage of our fantastic promotions, such as getting up to six weeks free storage when you keep your belongings with us for more than 12 weeks. Depending on how long you plan to stay, you could take advantage of some of these offers and save money, so make sure you factor that into your decision.

Pack Everything Correctly

When packing everything up for storage, make sure you label every box so everything is easy to locate. Stumbling through boxes and unpacking everything just to find one thing is not ideal and, as a business owner, you’re unlikely to have that kind of time to spare.

Our boxes and packaging shop has everything you need to move your items into storage, such as boxes of varying sizes, bubble wrap, tape, padlocks and more.

Consider your boxes when packing your items. Things like televisions and computer monitors will require specialised boxes where they can be kept safe from breakage. Don’t overload your boxes with too much, either. If they become too heavy, they will be a nightmare to shift and could end up breaking through the bottom of the box. Distribute heavy items across many boxes with lighter items to ensure no box becomes too heavy to move easily.

Tape your boxes shut and write on them to mark where they are going to be stored, and which way up to stack them. This will help keep fragile items from breaking. Any furniture pieces that can be dismantled should be taken apart to maximise the amount of space in your unit.

Packing customer's orders in box

Streamline Access to the Unit

You will want to access your belongings quickly, especially if you’re pressed for time. Planning an excellent layout for your unit is essential for this reason.

Create aisles in the unit so you won’t have to remove boxes to find what you’re looking for. Shelves will help keep smaller items within easy reach and free up floor space. Make sure everything you could want access to is in easy reach within your unit.

See You Soon

We are open seven days a week, and our hours are Monday to Friday 9am-5pm, Saturday 9am-4pm and Sunday 10am-2pm. In accordance with government guidelines, you should enter the store via our loading bay and not the reception. We ask that you please make use of the available sanitation bay and observe social distancing guidelines, as well as wear a face mask while in store.

The Kangaroo Self Storage team are available to answer any of your questions over the phone, so give us a call on 0800 012 1528 to find out more about how you can benefit from our business storage in EdinburghGlasgow and Dundee today.

 

Short-term storage is perfect for those who only need storage space for a few days or weeks and who do not want to be tied into a lengthy contract.

At Kangaroo Self Storage, we believe that our customers should not be paying for a unit for longer than they need it. So, that’s why we offer the best deals and storage options for you, including a flexible storage contract for as little as seven days.

We will give you all the reasons why short-term business storage is right for you, including:

  • As a solution to your office situation
  • For relocating to a new office
  • For business storage
  • For seasonal stock
  • For office renovations
  • To archive documents.

So, let’s take a look and discover whether short-term storage is right for you.

In the Office

1 – As a Solution to Your Office Situation

Due to the current global situation, there is plenty of uncertainty in the marketplace. Businesses everywhere are unsure about whether to choose remote working or returning to the office, or whether to downsize to a smaller office. You may want to go with a completely different kind of space.

Self-storage can provide you with the time to consider what your business really needs.

When you store the likes of desks, chairs, office equipment and furniture, it is much easier to assess how much space you need, or what you need in the office. You may decide that remote work is the right choice for your company, or you may want a dedicated office for client meetings.

Kangaroo can provide you with a workspace ideal for your needs. Our units vary widely in size, from tiny 16sq ft lockers to humungous 500sq ft units. They are ideal for office storage to keep your inventory safe or fulfil online orders.

2 – For Relocating to a New Office

Moving is a stressful time, whether it’s to a new home or office. You may want to downsize your office due to the pandemic, or maybe you’ve discovered you actually need a larger premises. Whatever the reason, short-term storage can be exactly what you need to facilitate the move.

Storage can give you a temporary space to store your equipment or stock. At Kangaroo, you can change units completely free of charge, so you can take things out of storage or add stuff with no problems whatsoever. Simply upgrade or downgrade to a bigger or smaller unit just like that.

You will want the office move to be as smooth as possible so your employees can continue to work, with as short a period of disruption as possible.

Short-term storage can facilitate this. At Kangaroo, we have pallet trucks and trolleys at your disposal, and we have a forklift service too, making your move into and out of storage much less time-consuming.

 3 – For Business Storage

You don’t need to be moving into a new space to take advantage of self-storage units. Many businesses come to Kangaroo to store equipment, tools and marketing materials. We are popular for companies that want to keep stock and fulfil orders from inside the storage unit. Ecommerce businesses use our units for storage and fulfilment while benefiting from our free delivery receipts service. We are always in, so you can manage your business without having to wait around for deliveries to arrive.

Need more space but don’t want to rent a larger premises? Storage is a great alternative, especially if you are running a business from home.

Treat the storage space as an extension of your business premises and use it to store inventory, equipment and essential documents. Self-storage from Kangaroo can be more cost-effective than using office space.

With Kangaroo, there are:

  • No maintenance costs
  • No utility bills
  • No business rates
  • No security fees

Safety is also vitally important to us, so our full business service includes:

  • 24-hour security system
  • Access door entry controls
  • Intruder alarm systems
  • Superb fire precautions

4 – For Seasonal Stock

If your business has seasonal spikes and is busy for short periods throughout the year, then short-term storage can be a great idea.

Alternatively, seasonal materials that are only used intermittently throughout the year, such as Christmas decorations or sale promotional materials, can be safely stored away in self-storage until they are next needed. Whether you work from home or in the office, you likely don’t have the space required to keep everything, so a storage unit can take things off your hands, making them available when you need them.

And should there be an unexpected spike in business, you can benefit from a storage unit to keep that extra inventory on hand. With our flexible agreements, you can rent more space instantly for short periods.

5 – For Office Renovations

Are you considering having the office renovated? Knowing that you can store equipment and furniture while you do this can give you peace of mind. At Kangaroo, we will easily stow your belongings for as long as needed, a few weeks, months, years…it’s totally up to you.

And if you need storage boxes or packaging materials, you can get them at our Box Shop, as we aim to be a one-stop-shop for our customers.

So if you’re having an office revamp or expanding the space, you will likely want to keep your desks and cabinets out of harm’s way and avoid any damage or mess during construction work. Short-term storage can provide you with the reassurance you need.

6 – To Archive Documents

Business owners know that keeping documents safe is paramount, and so do we. At Kangaroo, our storage units are clean, modern and ideal for keeping your belongings safe, whether tools, furniture, laptops, uniforms or documents.

Paperwork can take up a lot of space, which is frustrating for a number of reasons, especially if your company needs to keep original documents for some time. In situations like these, archive storage can be the right choice for you, as it is cost-effective and entirely secure.

Packing a Box

So if you need self storage in Edinburgh, self storage in Dundee or self storage in Glasgow, we can help.

Our short-term storage space is ideal for business owners who don’t want to be tied into a long-term contract. So contact us today, and we will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have about our storage services and facilities.

Working From Home
 

Everything we know about office working is changing.

While many people would already work from home, the coffee shop or a bench, they still typically had a permanent office base to go to. However, because of Coronavirus, traditional office requirements are changing. Many people who thought working from home was impossible due to the nature of their job have discovered that this isn’t the case, and they have been able to work effectively from the comfort of their own home.

Millions of UK workers have been working from home and succeeding. So we can definitely expect that the traditional office space is going to be completely transformed.

Working from Home

Rethink Your Office Requirements

Even though lockdown measures are easing and much more of the high street opening up, preparing to return to the office is a little more complicated than we might have expected.

Across the country, companies must ensure their premises are COVID safe, in line with government guidelines. Public transport is still restricted and with social distancing still the norm, it won’t be easy to get everyone back into the office while observing all the relevant safety measures.

For many people, remote working will become their new normal. There is also the idea of hybrid weeks, where staff spend half the week working from home and the other half in the office.

Even though social distancing will eventually be reduced, and likely stopped completely, the mentality will likely persist. People are more aware than ever of how easy it is to catch illnesses off others, and the experience of working from home will change how many people view work itself.

Digital technology has allowed for fantastic connectivity, with meetings being conducted with every attendant in a completely different place. So it’s not surprising that we’re moving away from the traditional office.

So, you may need to rethink your office requirements.

Do you really need that physical office space for all your employees? Or is there money to be saved by opting for remote working? You can save on costs or invest it in technology to make at-home working even more efficient.

While home working isn’t ideal for every kind of business, for many office workers around the world, an internet connection is all that’s needed. You can attend meetings with anyone from anywhere in the world and easily share documents with co-workers. With these kinds of technological advances, there’s no need to be physically present at all.

The Future of the Office

With a computer and internet connection, the traditional office space as we know it is likely to change. Many people won’t have to commute anymore, and others will do their jobs from where they find the most convenient.

Of course, some offices will remain the same, as not all employees will want their staff working from home and prefer the more collaborative environment where there is physical interaction. But in general, we can expect to see more employees working from home in the future.

One downside to working outside the conventional office is the lack of social interaction, but this can be mitigated by the hybrid weeks. And because people won’t need to commute (or at least not every day), they are likely to develop a better work-life balance, which will help boost their wellbeing and productivity.

Employers may rent out office space in a less expensive location or simply opt for a smaller office space as their needs change. Some business owners have even chosen to create their own office space here at Kangaroo Self Storage. Our units are perfect for both business storage and as an office space, they are equipped with everything you might need to run a business, including powerful Wi-fi.

Working from Home

Kangaroo Self Storage Can Help with Your Storage Needs

At-home working, or working from a café or the park, means that your makeshift office has little or no storage space. That’s where Kangaroo Self Storage can help. We offer flexible leases across our storage units, including a lowest price guarantee. We also provide a range of business-specific services too. There’s free Wi-fi, and we can accept deliveries on your behalf, so you won’t need to wait around. We have a shredding service and can provide you with pallet storage, archive storage and warehouse storage.

Even if you prefer the traditional office space, you may be thinking of downsizing to save on costs. You can rent or buy a smaller office space and have some staff working from home, or all your staff on a rotation, so only some people are in each day.

We can help you with self storage in Edinburgh, self storage in Dundee and self storage in Glasgow. With units ranging from a small 16sq ft locker all the way up to a vast 500sq ft unit, we will have a unit to suit your requirements.

While we have been open and serving customers throughout lockdown, we ask that you still enter our stores via the loading bays and not the reception area. Our cleaning regime has been intensified, with commonly touched areas like PIN pads and door handles being frequently sanitised. We also have sanitation stations and our staff wear masks and gloves when in the storage area.

If you’re rethinking your office space and need business storage in EdinburghGlasgow and Dundee, don’t hesitate to contact Kangaroo Self Storage today.

Packing Books into a Box
 

With business everywhere having to make some stark changes recently, there has never been a better time to consider business storage for your company. Covid-19 has completely transformed the way businesses in every sector operate. From more stringent hygiene regimes for those in offices and other traditional places of work, to new rotas to accommodate those working from home. The way employers run their companies, and the way employees work is changing in drastic ways.

To help you settle into this new normal, Kangaroo Self Storage is on hand providing flexible space for all your business storage needs. You’re likely to be facing some tough challenges and decisions need to be made, so here’s how you can navigate these workplace changes and keep your business operations flexible by using business storage.

Downsize the Office

Your business may be facing financial challenges now and over the last few months because of a drop in demand or perhaps you’ve even had to close part of your business operations. As such, you’re probably looking for ways to reduce your expenditure and hold on to more of your cash to get your company through this difficult time.

One of the ways to seriously save some money is to temporarily (or permanently) downsize your office space. Rent is probably one of the more costly expenditures you’re enduring at the moment, and if you have employees capable of working from home, you might be paying for space that you’re not even using.

Consider moving to a smaller space, or possibly even ridding yourself of an office entirely in favour of at-home working. Business storage can offer you a fantastic temporary storage solution for all your office equipment and furniture while you settle into your new way of working. At Kangaroo, our largest storage units are 500 sq ft, offering you plenty of space to store the entire contents of your office premises for as long as you need. We also have specifically tailored business storage spaces including pallet storage, warehouse storage and equipment storage.

Store Stock and Merchandise

You may have a surplus of stock that you haven’t yet been able to sell If this is the case, don’t sell that stock off at crazy prices because you don’t have the space needed to store it, book a storage unit and keep your inventory safe and secure with us at Kangaroo until business picks up again.

We offer very competitive rates on storage, including a 10% lowest price guarantee and great discount rates for long-term stays. So rather than cut your losses and rid yourself of unsold stock, consider putting it in storage for a future date when your sales pick up again.

Use Storage for Your Business Operations

Aside from just storing your stock or surplus furniture in a storage unit, you could even consider moving your business operations into your unit entirely to save on expensive office rent.

Storage units are large spaces that can be useful in so many ways. Whether it’s as combine office and storage for your eBay company; plain backdrop to do photoshoots and record videos, or just a peaceful place to write or undertake sewing projects, your storage unit can offer you so much more than simply storage. Take a look at a previous blog post about the kinds of businesses you can run from a storage unit.

Protect Your Assets

If all your employees are working from home and no one is in the office, you might be concerned about theft. All those computers, laptops and other costly pieces of office equipment sitting in an empty office could be at risk.

And, if working from home is something you are going to encourage your employees to do for the time being, you should consider moving your valuable business assets into a secure storage unit. At Kangaroo, we have a top-notch security system in place to ensure that your belongings are safe and sound with us. We have 24/7 CCTV cameras, a sophisticated electronic security system, a security perimeter fence and fire alarms to ensure our customers’ peace of mind.  What’s more your unit is locked with your own padlock, so no one other than you has access to it.

Not only that we offer very flexible terms across all our storage units and we can provide a free collection service too.  Alternatively, if you’re moving a large amount of equipment or office furniture into storage you might want to take advantage of our free 24hr transit van hire, available with our partners, Enterprise.  T&Cs apply – so ask in store or take a look at our free collection page for more information.

Double doors to larger rooms

Give yourself peace of mind by moving expensive assets into storage to keep them safe before you go back to working in the office. Or if you decide working from home is something you want to keep in place for the foreseeable future, you can store the assets with us for as long as you need until you figure out what to do with them.

At Kangaroo, we offer self storage in Edinburgh, self storage in Dundee and self storage in Glasgow. Our stores all offer the same fantastic security measures, and each one is staffed by a friendly and knowledgeable team who would be more than happy to help you with any enquires you might have. Give us a call today on 088 012 1528 to book your unit and find out more about how we can help your business in this challenging time with business storage solutions.

For many business owners, this is a time of much uncertainty. Carrying on as normal as possible may seem difficult, or downright impossible, with everything that’s going on at the moment; however, while there is no denying that things have changed, one thing hasn’t: you can still run your business from your storage unit. (more…)

At Kangaroo Self Storage, you will find the perfect storage unit for your business. Whether you own a start-up, run a charity or an established business, our business storage units in Edinburgh, Dundee and Glasgow can help you to run your company.

But how do you make sure you pick the right kind of storage facility and business storage unit? There are several different things to consider before you make your decision, here’s seven of them:

The Size of Storage Unit

The size of the unit is important. Consider how you want to use the unit, what and how much you want to store inside, and if the space is suitable. A half-full unit is not cost-effective, so make a list of everything going into storage as this way you will be confident in your choice of unit size and get an accurate quote. Our website can help you work out the space you need and our friendly team will be able to offer more advice too – remember, they’re the experts.

However, remember to include some extra space to account for anything that might go into storage at a later date. While Kangaroo allows you to upscale or downscale your units free of charge, you don’t want the hassle of having to re-pack and unpack everything into a bigger storage unit.

Is Your Home Office Too Small?

When you think you’re done working from home, either because you’re running out of space or you can’t focus with all those distractions, it could be time to consider a business storage unit. Units can provide you with the space you need to run your business with no interruptions.

A storage unit can also help you to reclaim your home. Running your own business from home might seem like a good idea at first when you need to keep costs low, but it can soon get on top of you and completely take over. You could end up losing important documents without a proper place to store everything. Keeping your work life and your home life separate is essential for your wellbeing, and a self-storage unit can help you create a dedicated space for your business.

Think About the Location

Where the storage centre is located could be crucial. For example, our storage units are located in major cities across Scotland. At our Edinburgh store, we’re in Sighthill, just off the Edinburgh City Bypass (A720), so we can be seen clearly from the A71 Calder Road, the main access road from the west in and out of Edinburgh. Our accessible locations make us ideal for business owners leading busy lives.

You will also need to consider if you want regular access to your stored belongings. If you need to visit frequently, you will need a self-storage company that offers that kind of arrangement. At Kangaroo, we are open seven days a week, so you pick up your equipment and stock every day.

Kangaroo Self Storage

Security of the Company

What good is a business self-storage facility if they can’t guarantee the safety of your belongings?

At Kangaroo Self Storage, we know how important it is to you, to store your business assets safely and securely. We provide 24-hour digital CCTV both inside and outside the building to monitor all entrances and exits, a sophisticated alarm system and a coded electronic gate to access the premises. Whether it’s day or night, you won’t need to worry about your stock or equipment.

Features of the Storage Facilities and Units

To help you decide how to choose your business storage unit, consider what you will be using the unit for. For example, if you need space to store and archive important documents, you probably need a different kind or size of unit to that required to let you store and pack stock or film a YouTube video.

Aside from storage units, we also offer the likes of pallet storage so that you can store bulky or high-volume goods in our organised warehouse facility.  We provide a forklift service too.

What’s more, we also take deliveries on your behalf.  So you don’t need to wait in for your new stock orders – we’ll take care of it. You can pick up from our secure holding station at your convenience.

Different storage units will come with different features, so don’t hesitate to contact us to ask how it all works.

The Cost of the Unit

Wherever you need self-storage, you will need to consider the cost of the business storage. Cost-effectiveness is crucial for business owners, especially if you’re a new business just starting. That’s why we offer incredibly competitive prices for our units, including our lowest price guarantee. On a like for like quote, we will knock 10% off any price.

Additionally, if you store with us for long enough, you could also be eligible for free weeks of storage as part of our special offers and promotions.

Stored Boxes

Are There Any Hidden Costs?

Surprises can be nasty, especially when they’re unexpected costs. When looking for your storage space, be on the lookout for hidden expenses like utility bills. At Kangaroo Self Storage, we won’t surprise you with any additional costs. The quoted price includes everything from the storage rental, rates, service charges, utility bills and maintenance costs.   But you will need insurance and a padlock – we can help you there too, just ask our team.

Make sure you’re getting the best value for money when you choose your business storage unit. Whether you’re looking for business storage in Edinburgh, business storage in Dundee or business storage in Glasgow, contact Kangaroo Self Storage for safe, secure, competitive hassle-free storage today.

 

Charities, bookkeeping and eBay sellers, these are just a few of the different kinds of businesses that can be based in a storage unit. Instead of piling your kitchen table with paperwork or taking over your garage with stock, a storage unit can offer the perfect solution to keeping your work and home life separated.

Leasing an office space can be expensive; rising rents as well as the costs of utility bills and business rates along with the requirement for a long-term commitment make this option risky and costly  And, if you have the type of business that sees the demand for space fluctuate – you can often end up paying for space that just isn’t needed very often.

Well, with a storage unit from Kangaroo Self Storage, you won’t be tied to a long contract as there are no long leases. It’s also very easy to upscale or downscale to a different sized unit if you need more or less space – and there is no penalty.  With one fixed monthly invoice that includes all your business rates and utility charges – costs are transparent and easy to manage too.

Here’s a look at just some of the businesses you could base in a storage unit:

Online Seller

If you sell products online, you don’t want your house to become an order fulfilment centre. Whether you’re selling goods on eBay, Amazon or Etsy, cluttering up your home with products is never the solution. A self-storage unit can safely store your merchandise, and even provide a space to photograph it and create product listings. Moving everything into a storage unit allows you to clear up the goods piled everywhere in your house.

Arts and Crafts

Handmade items have exploded in popularity over the years due to the growing appeal of websites like Etsy. It can be challenging to find the right place to both store the raw materials and the final products but to also craft those products in the first place. So, whether you need a workspace, a place to store your finished products prior to sale, or you need space to keep your crafting supplies, self-storage can help.

Video Business

If you run a video-making business such as a channel on YouTube, a storage unit can help make your business operations easier. The walls of your storage unit can be great as a neutral background for vlogs and instructional videos, or you can decorate as you see fit. You’ll also have the necessary quiet to film uninterrupted. No more disruptions from your home life. Our units have lighting and electricity sockets, and we also offer Wi-Fi at Kangaroo Self Storage, so you can upload your online content the same day you film it.

Writing Business

Don’t have your own office at home to concentrate on writing? Tired of being tempted by delicious cakes and overpriced coffee at the café instead of finishing that first draft? Or perhaps you get distracted people-watching, instead of writing? For many writers, it can be incredibly challenging to focus when surrounded by noise or constant interruptions. A storage unit could be the space that helps you concentrate on your work and boost your productivity.

Theatre Company

When you think of storage units, theatre is probably not what comes to mind. However, a storage unit can provide a world of benefit to businesses in the arts, such as theatre. There is an awful lot of materials needed to put on a show: costumes, props, backdrops, lighting, sound equipment etc. So, a storage unit can provide you with the space to store it all and keep everything secure and protected. You could even use the storage space for some last-minute rehearsals!

Charity

If you run a charity, it’s essential to have a dedicated space to store all the donations and any stock, as well as a place to securely keep records and sensitive information. You could also use your self-storage unit as an operations base for fundraising, including storing marketing material and competition prizes.

Independent Publishing House

Independent publishers will deal with a lot of stock like books, brochures, magazines and pamphlets. Before shipping these materials or distributing them to retailers, you need a place to store, sort and label everything. A self-storage unit will give you all the required space you need and ensure that your products remain safe and don’t get damaged. At Kangaroo Self Storage, we have units in many different sizes, so you can expand as your company grows.

Photo Studio

Is there a better place than a storage unit to shoot your photos? With some simple adjustments, such as professional backdrops and lighting, no one will ever be able to tell where those photos were taken. Storage units are also an excellent space for post-production editing; just add a desk for your laptop, and you’re ready to touch up those photos.

Contractor

Contractors, like landscapers, can benefit from a spacious and safe place to store their equipment, supplies and tools. Not only is landscaping equipment expensive, but it’s also bulky and not easy to keep at home if you don’t have a safe space. This could be anything from lawnmowers, ladders, leaf blowers or woodchippers. Rather than disrupt your home life, store your equipment in a self-storage unit to keep it safe and secure.

Fashion Designer

Tired of discovering thread and fabric in every corner of your house? Don’t know where you’ve put your spare bobbins? Well, with a self-storage unit, you have the perfect space to be creative and store all your materials at the same time.

Event Organiser

Planning events is a very methodical job that requires intense organisation skills to ensure the event runs smoothly. Carrying around binders with crucial information, keeping relevant documents lying around the house or dragging essential equipment with you every time you have to be somewhere is not making the best use of your time.

Instead, a storage unit can provide you with a secure space to keep everything from props to client information and business cards. This way, you can work in peace, be prepared for anything and plan spectacular events without worrying about missing information or materials.

Brainstorming Notes
