What To Store In A Business Storage Unit?
Unbeknownst to most, a business storage unit does more than just act as storage for businesses. Below we’ve listed the most common reasons for business storage.
The majority of companies have been using storage facilities as a warehouse for their inventory and stocks since the 1900s. If your company constantly deals with bulk amounts of goods, then business storage is definitely a must-have. It’s loads cheaper than keeping items on-site.
Business storage units can act as an archive for your files. It’s best practise to keep physical copies of company files, even if they aren’t needed at the moment. In fact in the UK businesses are obliged to keep important paperwork for at least 7 years. A cheaper, more secure and hassle-free option to archiving is to rent commercial storage units.
Startups and small businesses find that business storage units make for decent office space. Artists, woodworkers, and sculptors also consider commercial storage units as a perfect location that gets their creative juices flowing. Note that Henfield does not currently offer this facility.
Amenities Offered In A Business Storage Unit
Just as with a self-storage facility, a business storage unit can be customised to have a lot of convenient amenities. Not only does this give consumers added convenience, but it also becomes more useful. Here are some of the amenities that you can have for your business storage unit.

the UK's most trusted storage service
Made the whole process very easy!
‘Superb service, highly recommended’
Excellent service. Very helpful driver who explained clearly what would happen to the boxes and took great care to place them properly in the container, with the heaviest items at the bottom.
so far so good, well priced. A particular thank you to Duan for his invaluable help and good humour.
‘Brilliant friendly service and great value for money.’
From start to finish we were really impressed with their service and value. Very highly recommended indeed. Dujuan arrived on time, communicated about when he would get to us before he did, and was totally brilliant - stayed with us for the whole thing - including moving the stuff into the unit, as well as taking the stuff to the facility, and taking us to see options/working out quotes for upgrading as there was a fair bit more stuff than anticipated.. the whole time he was so helpful, friendly and generally went above and beyond - even warning us about how heavy each box would be before handing it over. I can't praise him and the overall service enough.Read more

‘Amazing service - extremely helpful and professional’
Amazing service. The person who collected our possessions was incredibly helpful at every stage, from recommending a more suitably sized storage unit for us (saving us money) to helping with the loading of the van and the unloading of our possessions into the storage unit itself.Read more
‘Dwarn (at Staples Corner) - great customer care’
Dwarn was amazing and gave customer service above and beyond after hours to make sure I wasn't left stranded. He is a real asset to Henfield storage at staples corner and I hope his manager Olly appreciates what a great employee he has working for him. He changed my opinion on arrival from really poor to outstanding. I can't praise him enough.Read more
