How to Manage Seasonal Movements in Business
If your business is subjected to peaks and troughs during the year, it may be a challenge to maintain optimum stock levels, meet client demand and minimise overheads.
There are several industries that are seasonal in nature including retail, construction, outdoor recreation, event planning, landscaping and many more.
Many businesses have cyclical patterns, with periods of high demand followed by periods of low demand. Self Storage can be a cost effective way to store excess inventory during the off-season, regardless of the industry.
How can Self Storage help?
There are a number of ways Self Storage can help businesses with issues around seasonal stock:
Space management: Self Storage units come in a variety of sizes, so businesses can choose the one that best fits their needs. This means they can rent a larger unit during the busy season when they have more stock, and then downsize to a smaller unit during the off-season when they have less stock.
Safe and secure: Self Storage facilities are typically equipped with security measures such as surveillance cameras, gated access, and security personnel. This ensures that the inventory is safe and secure while it’s stored.
Convenience of Access: Self Storage facilities offer convenient access to the stored inventory. Self Storage facilities have extended hours of operation, and offer 24/7 access to commercial clients. This makes it easy for businesses to retrieve their inventory when they need it.
Flexibility: Self Storage units are rented on a monthly basis, which gives businesses the flexibility to adjust their storage needs as their inventory levels change. This means they can rent a unit for a few months during the busy season, and then cancel the rental when they no longer need it.
Self Storage units can be a cost effective way to handle excess stock for businesses.
No long-term commitment: Unlike renting additional warehouse or retail space, Self Storage units are rented on a month-to-month basis, which means businesses can rent them only for the period they need them. This eliminates the need for a long-term lease commitment, which can be expensive and inflexible.
No utility expenses: Self Storage units do not require businesses to pay for utilities such as electricity, water, and heating, as these are generally included in the rental price. This can save businesses a significant amount of money.
