Stock Storage Solutions for Business Surplus

Ready Steady Store mascot male and female working

Storing stock in a limited office or storefront space can quickly become overwhelming. That’s where business storage comes in. Warehousing space comes at premium, with commitments to long leases and business rates. So it is not always the right option when all you need is somewhere for stock storage, or for your business surplus storage. 
When your business is growing, it is essential to have adequate space to store surplus stock so customer orders can be fulfilled quickly and easily. It is not always possible and safe to store your stock surplus at your business premises. By renting a self storage unit, you can free up valuable space in your workplace and keep your inventory secure and well-organised.  

Benefits of Storing Stock Off-Site 

Managing inventory can be challenging and time-consuming for businesses of all sizes. Storing stock off-site can help ease operations and save costs. 

Increased Space 

One of the main advantages of storing stock off-site is the ability to free up valuable space in your business location. By moving excess inventory to a self storage unit, you can create additional room for expanding your office space, setting up new workstations, or accommodating the growing needs of your business. 

Improved Efficiency 

With additional space in your workplace, you can store stock in a more organised manner, making it easier to track and take items when needed. By categorising your inventory and implementing a proper labelling system, you can reduce the time spent searching for specific items, improving operational efficiency and productivity. 

Enhanced Security 

The security measures at all our locations, like CCTV cameras, 24-hour monitoring, security gates, and restricted access, significantly reduce the risk of theft and damage to your stock. 


Renting a self storage unit for storing stock is often more cost-effective than renting additional space at your business location or building new storage facilities.  

 Ideal for a Growing Business 

As your business grows, your inventory needs may also increase. Self storage units offer the flexibility to scale up or down as needed without physical space limitations. You can easily adjust the size of your storage unit, ensuring you always have enough space for your inventory.
