The number of businesses online has been rising for a long time. 2020 saw a boom in online businesses like no other. According to Growth Intelligence, more than 85,000 businesses launched online stores or joined the online marketplace in the first few months following the first lockdown.

In a post-pandemic era, businesses need to be more flexible and able to adapt to changing circumstances. Self-storage can help play an essential role in this, but how can Kangaroo Self Storage help businesses move online?
