Local business self storage | Hogleaze News

Looking for local business self storage? Why you should choose Hogleaze Storage

Often when people think of self storage they assume it is mainly for personal use, to store unwanted household items, or your furniture whilst you move. However, businesses of all types and sizes are now opting to use self storage for various reasons. 

In this article, we cover what business storage is, why you might need it, and how Hogleaze Storage can help you find the best storage solution for your needs. 

What is business storage?

Business self storage is a system where owners rent units to store their goods remotely, typically when they do not have the space to do so in their own premises. These can be rented long or short term and can be due to a number of reasons. 

Why would businesses need self storage?

As mentioned above, there are many reasons why a business might consider self storage. These may include: 

  • Saving office space – employees might find it hard to concentrate at work if the office is crowded and untidy. It might be sensible to have a clear-out and store goods or paperwork that you don’t need on a regular basis in a storage unit. 
  • Storing stock – business self storage is particularly useful if you have excess stock. This could be anything from slow-moving or bulky stock, to exhibition and trade show stands. 
  • Keeping items safe – although your work premise might be secure, self storage units offer state-of-the-art security, with CCTV cameras. Insurance is also available, which will help ensure your items are protected.
  • Cutting costs – space can be expensive to rent, especially if you’re renting somewhere large enough to home all your stock and paperwork. Business storage could free up more space for you to downsize your office, warehouse or retail space, saving you money in the long-run. 
  • Convenience – some storage facilities will be open 24/7 which means you can access your storage unit whenever your business requires. Self storage can also be very flexible in allowing you to rent short or long term. 
  • Document storage – with so many regulations around keeping personal data safe and secure, documents can take up a lot of space in an office. We have dedicated units for document storage which include racks to make it easy to see your paperwork. Learn more here.

Hogleaze provides excellent facilities and service

We are emailing you to inform you that we have sold our motorhome and will no longer require the pitch. Should we buy another van, we will of course come back if you have availability.

You provide excellent facilities and service.

Really impressed with the service & customer-focused attention

I was really impressed with the service and customer-focused attention I received dealing with you both. Prompt replies to my enquiries and professional standards throughout mean that my first thoughts on needing storage will be towards Hogleaze. Also, as I mentioned when meeting you, my work involves motor homes, camper vans and the occasional ‘shed’ and I have and will continue to recommend you. I took several of your cards for this purpose!

Unfortunately, our house move failed as the buyers pulled out on Christmas Eve (nice) so I’ve put my MX5 back in our double garage but I was happy knowing it was safe and snug at yours!

Found the facility to be safe and secure

I used Hogleaze Storage for many years and found the facility to be safe and secure. My belongings stayed dry; the ambient temperature seemed just right and there was no dampness. Wooden furniture; cardboard boxes and books all survived intact. The staff are also helpful and friendly. I recommend this facility.

I really like the facility and I am very impressed with the setup you have.

It was lovely to meet you last Friday and finally get the Caravan in to secure storage. I really like the facility and I am very impressed with the setup you have. I received your welcome letter yesterday and have set up the standing order for the 1st July and then to continue at the begin of each month thereafter.

Thank you once again.

I would recommend Hogleaze Storage to anyone thinking of storing their possessions

It has been a most enjoyable experience entrusting Hogleaze Storage Ltd with my furniture, household and personal possessions, since August 2012.

It was good to meet Shelley, her helpful and friendly demeanor, nothing was too much – she even brought along bolt cutters in case I could not open the padlock on the shutter doors. She was happy to show Gentleman Removals and myself the way.

The service has been excellent throughout the seven years, with up-to-date monthly invoices and security information – thoughtful and caring – all my possessions including the ones I did not know I had stored in the unit, were intact and working.

I would recommend Hogleaze Storage Ltd to anyone thinking of storing their household, office and personal possessions, whether short or long-term. The location is worth a visit on its own, the site is safe and secure, clean and accessible 24/7.
