Christmas is just around the corner! If you haven’t realised it already, you definitely will as you make your way in and out of the brightly decorated shops, all lit up to celebrate the festive period.
The festive period is an extremely busy time of year for retailers, and we don’t just mean how long it takes to get the shops looking like Santa’s Grotto. It’s one of the busiest times of year for sales, and getting orders fulfilled on time is essential to ensuring success.
Did you know that our self storage units at Kangaroo are used to host a number of businesses (and their inventory)?
We offer flexibility, low cost and short-notice periods, which makes storage very appealing easing the seasonal strain. Whether utilised just for the festive season or throughout the entire year, storage can be incredibly useful to your business.
Below, we take a look at all the ways storage can make things a lot easier for your business during seasonal peak periods.
Seasonal businesses can really benefit from using storage. Our ‘easy in, easy out’ agreement allows you as much space as you need and for as long as you need it – you can even have your stock delivered direct to the store.
Our helpful team will take delivery for you, so you don’t have to be on-site; they will notify you when your goods arrive and store it in our secure holding area. And if you need additional storage at short notice – we can increase the size of your unit without any penalty.
As soon as the Christmas rush is over, you can simply choose to give us notice and close the unit, as you’re not tied down to a long-term contract.
Looking for the perfect place to record your Christmas podcast, latest YouTube video, or the next big film? Our storage units can make the ideal location for your studio. For small businesses that are unable to afford a big studio, a storage unit could be the perfect alternative.
Available in different sizes, we’re positive that our units are big enough to meet all of your requirements. You simply choose your space, decorate it as you wish and then get on with filming or recording.
If you run your own online business, you’ll be very aware of how quickly inventory can build up and take over your home. Storing your products in a self-storage unit is the ideal way to store your things securely, whilst ensuring easy access.
With Christmas being such a busy period, even retailers can benefit from renting out a unit. Self-storage allows you to easily store all in-demand inventory – be it seasonal items or an influx of popular products you can’t keep in your shop – so you’ll never run out of floor space.
The festive period can mean a rise in paperwork for some businesses and, therefore, an increase in the need for space to store it all. Self-storage units allow you to safely archive important records and data, including confidential and sensitive documents. Tax returns, invoices or receipts, for example, are often required by law to be kept for years in physical form, so cloud storage is not an option.
Instead of spending a lot of money on upgrading to a bigger office, why not rent a storage unit as an archive space, rather than using a spare room in your office?
Kangaroo provides safe and secure self storage in Edinburgh, self storage in Glasgow and self storage in Dundee. Your business will benefit from not only a secure storage unit but a flexible contract – there are no long-term leases, meeting rooms, as well as delivery and collection support.
You can also choose to use our free collection service, where we agree with you a time to collect your stock and bring it to store. You load the van or trailer, we deliver it to store and you unload it into your storage unit. It is self-storage after all!
