Uncertainty about the future and planning ahead
Time is pressing for small businesses as the uncertainty about the terms of leaving the EU continues.
Uncertainty is the last thing any business needs, especially if they are part of a supply chain across Europe and they need to ensure there will be no interruption to their business activity.
Making sure they have a continuous supply of raw materials, components and products, depending on the nature of their business, is crucial.
Yet the FSB (Federation of Small Businesses) estimates that the majority of its members have as yet made no preparations or plans to deal with possible disruption to their supplies.
While larger companies have lost patience and already commissioned warehouse space or actually building additional storage, this is not really an option for the small business.
However, there is a solution for those who need additional storage space and that is our self-store facility.
There are a few limitations on what you can store for obvious safety reasons.
You cannot store food and perishable goods that could attract rodents or bacteria, for example, unless they are very securely packaged.
Similarly, you cannot store anything that could be a fire or chemical pollution hazard, so no flammable liquids such as gas, paint, petrol, oil or cleaning solvents and compressed gases and no chemical or radioactive materials.
There is space available in our self-storage facility, which is accessible 24/7 and secure, so if you need to ensure that your small business has the supplies it needs to continue operating, why not give us a call.
