Have you done your annual business review?
Traditionally late December and early January are the times when activity can be a little quieter and businesses take the opportunity to review how they have performed over the previous year.
Depending on how well they have done in reaching their goals for the year as well as developments in their industry sector this can be a time for making significant changes for the coming year.
A review will usually cover performance, how productive the business has been, and whether there are opportunities for growth. It may be that there have been developments in their sector, particularly in technology.
It may be that they have identified some products that are no longer in demand and viable or others that could be introduced.
Their next step will be to redraft their business plans, setting new goals for growth, and if there are new products or services they think they could introduce, doing the market research to assess the level of demand.
All of this may well lead to a need to rethink their premises, where they can make savings and perhaps where they can store their stock.
If the review has revealed a significant increase in the costs of their business premises it could be that it would be cost-effective to downsize to smaller offices and to outsource storage elsewhere.
A self-storage facility could be an excellent solution to this issue.
Records that need to be kept can be archived in a smaller unit to create more office space. Stock can be “warehoused” into a self-storage unit and the business need only take the size of space it actually requires.
All this comes with a high level of security, your own key or access code and the ability to get into your unit 24/7.
