Too Much Clutter and Too Little Storage?

One of the biggest concerns for business is space. Do you have enough storage space, do you have enough room to fit all your employees, and does your business have space to grow? These are the types of questions a concerned business owner would be asking themselves, and rightly so!

Renting an office isn’t cheap and many startup owners have to resort to renting cheap and run-down locations just to be able to afford the rent as they get their business up and running.

Renting an office isn’t cheap and many startup owners have to resort to renting cheap and run-down locations just to be able to afford the rent as they get their business up and running.

One of the biggest tips you could learn as a budding startup is to stop thinking about how much space you have inside of your office and think more about how you can utilize storage outside of your office.

Third-Party Storage Services

Let’s start with the most straightforward one. There are huge warehouses all over the world that specialize in selling storage because they have plenty of space for you to use. You can simply register your interest, pay a monthly fee and then stuff as much as you can inside of your private space. You could place old computers, you could keep your products there and you can even dump a bunch of old archived records into your storage space.

It’s versatile because it can serve so many uses, and it’s far cheaper than renting out a larger office or moving into a new one for the sake of space. Plus, it keeps all of that unnecessary clutter out of your way and you can simply go and pick it up whenever you need it.

It’s easy, convenient, space-saving and ultimately, very efficient for a business of any size. However, you should always keep track of what you actually put into your storage space so that you don’t make too many trips to and from the storage warehouse.

Buy Your Own Storage

If you have a lot of space on your business premises, then nothing prevents you from building up your own storage area or buying 40ft Shipping Containers from COSCO and keeping them on your premises.

These containers are huge, they’re spacious and they’re easy to transport, making it extremely effective as a means to transport lots of items as well. For instance, if you’re throwing out a lot of computers or transporting a bulk purchase of items to the buyer, then having a shipping container makes it incredibly easy.

Declutter

The easiest way of making more space without spending too much money is to simply declutter your office. Throw out all the trash, sell unwanted hardware and clean up the office a bit. If you’ve been using the office for a couple of months then you’ll have undoubtedly built up a lot of junk in your workplace and it’ll need a good spring clean.

Most businesses have a few rooms designated as useless rooms because they simply serve no purpose. You can use these rooms to tightly pack unwanted items that aren’t used very often, but the best option is to just sell anything your workplace doesn’t need.
