The benefits of storage units for online businesses

Image

Online businesses are great because you can virtually reach anyone worldwide and you don’t need a brick and mortar store. One of the downsides of running an online business is that you have to carry inventory and manage storage. While renting an office space is a good idea to house inventory, it can also be costly and a waste of space if your inventory is too small to fill the entire area. A cheaper alternative would be to check out the unit sizes we have available at “Ojai Self Storage”.  I would suggest choosing a local self storage facility, as carrying inventory back and forth can be strenuous. We are located in beautiful Ojai, CA 93023.

Not only are storage units affordable, but they are usually paid for on a monthly basis, which makes it much easier for you to gauge whether you’ll need your storage unit that next month or not for extra inventory. Additionally, many self storage facilities offer a wide variety of sizing options, which is great if you only have a certain amount of inventory and need a particular sized unit. Furthermore, many self storage facilities have a controlled gate access system for secure entry. There is no need for you to worry about your items being stolen because with controlled gate accessibility, the only person who can get into your storage unit is you. Lastly, many self storage facilities offer climate controlled units, to protect against severe temperature changes and fight moisture, which will fully protect your inventory.

Summer turns into Fall with the help of extra inventory

Summertime is around the corner, but for retail businesses, this means one thing:  Fall Collection. Having worked in retail myself, I can tell you that beyond having seasonal appropriate clothing, clothing stores also get the next season’s collection in early and where do you think they’re going to store that extra inventory?

There comes a point where the back of the clothing store can no longer take all the extra retail in all those boxes and you have to find an alternative. As a retail business, if you transfer your extra inventory to another branch of your business, then your branch is losing money. A better suggestion for housing your extra inventory would be to check out the unit sizes available at “Ojai Self Storage“. We have a wide variety of storage units to fit the needs of large and small business.  Our storage facility is conveniently located in Ojai, CA, 93023.

Storage units are convenient for retail business owners with extra inventory. This is because they are rented on a monthly basis, which makes it less costly for business owners who don’t know the amount of time they will need to house this extra inventory. Additionally, storage units come in a wide variety of sizes to suit your needs, so whether you’re housing a few boxes or a whole season’s worth of clothing, you have choices. Furthermore, many self storage units offer climate controlled storage units. Climate control protects against severe temperature changes and fights moisture, which will help to preserve your clothing.

The Importance of Visual Presentation

Beauty is a valued quality in our society, so much so that beauty is stressed and emphasized in everything, including the self storage industry. Long gone are the days of entering a dusty, enthusiastically air- conditioned building; Today, self storage facilities are sleek and modern, meeting the demands of the always trendy consumer.  Additionally, so much of business is now conducted through the internet that customers can form an opinion of your business based off its web page design, which is where aesthetics come into play. It is so important to have a well designed website, visually and navigation wise. You want your customer to be entranced by the design of the website, but also still be able to navigate your website with ease. The unique combination of a visually appealing but easy to access website is what will draw your customer in, pique their curiosity and perhaps spur a visit to your self storage facilities. Remember that even though performance is what counts in the long run, presentation is always imperative.
