Working from home used to be the dream for many, and now during these troubling times it has become the new normal. The explosion of advertising around technologies to connect teams and create a collaborative working space has made the move from office based work to a home based work environment pretty seamless.
Many workers have reported a better work – life balance, whilst many are happy with saving money on petrol and not being stuck in traffic on a daily basis and eliminating that long commute. Whatever sector you operate in, working from home will certainly have its benefits, and as we all settle in to our new routines, we have seen some issues arise that we feel we are in a position to help with.
We can’t solve every problem that you may encounter during this period. What we can do is give you some guidance on the services that we offer to support you.
Setting Up Your Home Office
With our self storage solutions, you can store whatever you need to create essential space for your new office. Whether its clearing out a room or making space in the shed, storing your belongings is the sensible choice in one of our water and fireproof units.
Our storage facilities give you the freedom to react to any changes that may occur through these troubling times, allowing you to swiftly take advantage of opportunities when they arise or limit damage if the situation is extended. Unlike commercial leases, you are not tied into lengthy contracts but can rent more or less storage units as and when you need to. Our short-term rolling contracts keep costs to a minimum and give you the flexibility to only use the space you need for the exact amount of time you need it.
Staying Organised And GDPR Compliant
It can be hard to stay organised when working from home, because all of your business things are amongst everything else. Having somewhere separate for your work things can be really useful. A space like self storage where you can visit, get files or information, and switch it with completed work, could be very handy.
Staying on top of your filing is very important, especially if handling documents of a legal nature or those that contains sensitive material. Files will naturally build up over time and our records management, and storage services ensure you are compliant with legal regulations – such as GDPR – as well as provide you with a secure space-saving solution for when your home office has limited space.
No space for stock?
A work from home setup is an excellent solution for running a business remotely, especially if you don’t want to spend that much on a big space lease. Stock can take up a lot of space in the home, so if your work from home situation is causing you to have a lot of stock in your house, a self storage solution may be the perfect fit for you.
Ff you need to buy in bulk then you can have stock delivered to our facility. With our professional setup – which includes 24/7 access, CCTV surveillance and forklift trucks, your potential stock deliveries can be safely moved to your unit with complete peace of mind.
