Regardless of your type of business, one thing remains constant and that is managing and storing business records. From daily invoices and bills to tax documents that you only reference once a year, business owners must keep track of a large amount of paperwork.
If you’re just starting, with only a few easy-to-manage invoices, you may be able to go without setting up a proper document storage system. However, for bigger organisations, using your memory alone is not sustainable unless you have a photographic memory. Still, to ensure everything is in place and remains above-board, here are some of the best tips for storing business records.
Many people think that self storage is just for long term projects and keeping big or bulky items, storing business files or work tools. The truth is, short term storage can be the answer to many challenges.
Are you expecting visitors and need to empty the spare room to make extra space? Is there a delay in a house move and do you need storage for a few items? How about keeping Christmas presents hidden from those prying eyes at home? Short term storage can help.
With the build-up to the festive season, there is a long list of things to do that wouldn’t be a consideration at any other time. Just think of all the presents, decorations, cooking, cleaning and preparing your home for visitors over the holidays. That is why we have compiled a simple Christmas storage and safety guide with some valuable, practical tips to ease your burden.
With the colder, wetter weather fast approaching, flooding is once again a real concern. Aside from your own safety, your belongings and property are also of significance. It is always wise to implement one or two plans beforehand – just in case. With that comes flood storage which refers to a designated safe place at your local self storage facility if necessary.
Whether you want to declutter your home or office, find a storage base in winter for your garden tools or a safe, damp-free space for your belongings when the weather threatens your property, flood storage is a cheap, short-term, worry-free solution. In this article, we highlight the importance of flood-proofing your home and how self storage can help.
People often ask this question but the answer depends as not all storage facilities follow the same rules. Many companies don’t allow sharing of self storage units as you are the sole person named on the agreement. However, considering you are the only key holder, the choice is ultimately yours.
If you are upfront and tell the storage facility that you will be giving access to someone else, they might ask you to add this person’s information to the agreement. There are practical reasons for having more than one key, but you need to know and trust the people concerned. It is, after all, your name on the tenancy agreement should anything go wrong.
