Running Your Business from a Self Storage Unit in Nottingham

15 February 2016

Starting a new business is one of the most rewarding experiences anyone can undertake, but it’s not to be undertaken lightly – the amount of planning that goes into starting a company is very detailed, time consuming, and you’ll need to raise a lot of capital and resources to ensure that your business survives the first twelve months. 

Capital is the key to any business’s success and it’s a balancing act, with the scales being slightly different dependent on the sector your new business fits into. If you’re a product-based company you will have to balance out your capital between business costs, production, stock, and you’ll also need to have a small fund available for emergency or unforeseen expenses. You’ll need to plan out how much stock you need to produce for your initial run, what the materials are to make the product(s) and their costs, and then you’ll need to have a monthly amount of finances set aside for your business operating costs, such as: office or factory/depot rental, wages, taxes, transport, expenses, and many more.

Start-Up Companies and Self Storage 

So let’s focus on one area of your future company’s budget – rent. As previously mentioned, the first twelve-months is one where you hope that your initial capital covers (if you’ve managed to raise some), and you’re main aim is to break even – that’s a great start, but a lot of businesses will run a deficit for their first year. Most businesses need an office, factory, or depot – maybe all three – to run their company. So one of your initial monthly expenses is premises rental, and at a time when commercial rentals are increasing, anyway where you can save on this could be a game changer.

Your first twelve to twenty-four months are a litmus test for you and your new business – you should try to run your company with a small number of staff who can perform various duties; you want to hire an affordable premises thatals are increast can possibly act as more than one function for a low a rate as possible. 

So it might be a savvy move to think a bit differently, and take an alternative approach – why not rent out one or multiple self storage units for your new company?
