Are you an online retailer? Whether you’re an E-commerce store owner, a small manufacturer, a drop shipper, or an online marketplace seller, we’ve got the perfect business storage solution for you at The Self Storage Company. 

If you run an online product-based business, you’ll understand one of the main challenges you face is storing your product inventory, especially as your business outgrows your home. Find out more about the range of business storage services available at The Self Storage Company and discover why online retailers should use self-storage!


Save Space in Your Home

Most online retailers begin their career at home as all you really need to sell items online is an internet connection. However, as mentioned, storing your stock at home may not be ideal, especially as your online retail business grows and you find yourself surrounded by stock. At The Self Storage Company, we offer a range of business storage units in different sizes that can help you to reclaim your living space at home and suit the needs of your online retail business. 

Choose a self-storage unit size from 10sqft (fits up to 15 boxes) to 275sqft (capable of storing up to 400 boxes of stock), and save space in your home! You’ll also have the option to upsize or downsize your business storage unit if required, perfect for managing seasonal demand or excess stock. 


Affordable Self Storage vs Retail Premises 

Compared to renting or purchasing physical retail premises, using self-storage is a more affordable solution for storing excess stock and products. At The Self Storage Company, we offer flexible managed storage plans that mean you’ll only pay for the storage space you require and the time you need it, whether long-term or short-term. 

When you choose to store your online retail products in a self-storage storage unit rather than renting a physical premise, you’ll also avoid  additional costs such as council tax, hidden business rates, and VAT.


Safe & Secure Self Storage

Another reason for using self-storage as an online retailer is a focus on security. At The Self Storage Company, we provide a range of business storage units designed to keep your stock clean, dry and protected from the elements. However, you’ll also benefit from improved security and the peace of mind that your products are safe and secure. All of our self-storage facilities boast 24/7 CCTV coverage, intruder alarms and smoke detectors so you can store your online retail products worry-free. 


Support from The Self Storage Company Team  

When you choose The Self Storage Company for your e-commerce business needs, you’ll also benefit from the support of The Self Storage Company team. Our self-storage experts are always on hand to offer any self-storage advice, act as an extra security measure, and assist with the day-to-day operations of your online E-commerce business by handling deliveries on your behalf.
