Self storage can be a little overwhelming. Where to begin, which unit would be right for you. This is particularly true for business storage in Enfield. Should you go for bulk storage or an enterprise unit? Or would a warehouse be better for your empire?
Here are some tricks which will stop some of the overwhelm and lead you to business success.
Create a plan of everything you need to store.
Your first step should be to make a detailed plan of everything you will need to store within your storage space. If you are a retail or e-commerce business, this will be listing the amount of stock you need for an average month, taking into account busy periods such as Christmas. List all your equipment such as your packing materials, your postage labels, tape etc.
Do you need electricity within your unit for printing invoices? Do you want to move your entire business over to Cinch Storage Enfield?
You need to have a detailed plan of everything you need your storage space to have.
And include space for you.
Make sure when you are devising your plan that you remember to include space for you. You need to be able to get in the unit, walk around, pack orders, do inventory etc. Think about whether you need any furniture within your unit to make it easier to work in.
Adding this into your plan will make sure it is a comfortable and happy place to work.
Leave time to look for your unit.
If you have a date in mind for when you want to move into your unit, make sure you begin all your plans nice and early so you stand a better chance of getting a unit which is the right size and has all the amenities which you want.
Leaving it too long may lead to your ideal unit being fully booked and you may be forced to rethink your plans.
Business storage Enfield: choose the right unit.
Once you have your plan, you should have a much better idea of what size unit or what kind of unit would be best for you. For example, if you want to move your entire business operations over to Cinch Storage Enfield, then an enterprise unit or a unit/office combo will be perfect.

Figure out how it is best for you to store.
Now you have your unit you can begin to decide the best way in which to store your stock and/or equipment. Shelving and rails work very well if you are storing clothing or shoes, for example.
If you have stock which is better kept within boxes, you will need to plan the best way for you to stack them, making sure any best selling items are easy to get to on a daily basis.
