Commercial downsizing

Downsizing - Image of storage unitDownsizing commercially is a reality for many businesses. When the world’s economy is booming, companies grow in size and stature and bigger premises are required. Fact.  Conversely, when the world is in recession or a depression, all this changes. Fact.

Unfortunately, as recession bites, companies are forced to consider downsizing and as a result, a move to more suitably sized, cheaper premises. It makes obvious sense. A smaller staff, a drop in production and of course, less overheads. However, such a switch brings with it problems over storage and floor space.

What happens to all of those filing cabinets, full of hard copy documents? Where will you put your surplus stock, equipment or non-essentials. Renting smaller premises means cutting down on costs, but it also means cutting down on storage space too. It can be an added headache.

Many companies will seek cheap, secure storage space with no long term commitment, unlike signing a lease. So, if you’re unsure about the future, but need to retain possession of your documents and stock after downsizing, it’s a bit less risky. Of course, if and when the boom returns, you can transfer your business belongings back to your new premises.

If you’re based in the North Bristol or Gloucestershire area, why not consider Space Centre Self Storage as a solution to your downsizing problems.
