My eBay business Is expanding where can I keep my stock?

Many people in the UK are choosing to sell goods on eBay as a way of generating supplemental income – it doesn’t take a lot of effort and there is a ready market. Storage of inventory, however, is a big problem. If they choose to store it at home it means that they have to hold a small inventory at once or look for a bigger house. Warehouses are also out of the question – they cost a lot of money and would eat into the profits. That is why storage units are such a great idea for eBay storage. They are secure and highly affordable.

Storage units are shipping containers that have been converted into storage spaces. They are easy to find in the UK – many companies are in the business because it is quite profitable. That said, you cannot rent the first storage containers that you come across; there are many that are not as good as they claim to be. When you are looking for storage containers look for these qualities:

•    The most important thing is security; how well does the company watch storage containers? You don’t want thieves to be able to gain access on your eBay stock storage so rent a container in a facility that has 24-hour CCTV surveillance. If they have fob or key access it is even better.

•    Look for a facility that has different sizes of storage containers – this way, you only rent as much space as you need.

•    Cost is a big deal when you are renting a storage container especially if you are looking for business storage solutions for the long term. You want to rent with a company that charges fair prices. It is even better if you can get them to throw in a discount because you will rent for a long time.

•    The best storage facilities in the UK have all their containers on ground level. This way, clients have an easy time placing or removing items. It helps if they have enough space so that clients can drive up to their containers.

•    Weather proofing is very important when you are renting storage containers – if you rent a unit that is not weather-proofed there is a very good chance that your items will be ruined. Find out whether the container you are renting will keep your items in good condition. It should also be cleaned before you put your items in.

Boylin’s Self Store in Northern England meets all these conditions. Find out more on http://www.boylinsselfstore.co.uk/

Is storage space in Wakefield expensive?

Whether you are looking for Wakefield storage containers for business or personal use, one of the first things you will take into account is cost – you don’t want to pay more than you should to store your items. The truth is that the cost of Wakefield storage solutions varies a big deal. You will find that there are some companies that boast of storage costs that are much lower than the market average – some will tell you things like you will pay only half-price for twelve weeks, others promise you half price for 3 months and so on. On the opposite end there are others that are quite expensive. What you should be looking at when it comes to storage is the quality of service that you are getting compared to what you are paying.

In many cases, you will find that storage companies that offer very low cost storage do it because they are cutting corners – they don’t have a lot of costs to cover which allows them to be cheap. You may find that they are not secure enough, their containers lack weather-proofing or they come stacked one container on top of another which makes it a challenge to place or remove items.

Looking around, you will find that one of the best offers you can get is from Boylin’s Self Store. They have great storage and every dime you pay them is well worth it. They charge you £16.99 p/w for a 150 sq ft storage container and with that, here is what you get:

•    They have CCTV cameras on at all times which means that they can see every container. In addition to that, each container has fob or key access which means that only you or any other person you authorize can access your unit.

•    The facility can give you a storage unit the same day that you ask for it; many other facilities have waiting lists for clients. Each unit is cleaned thoroughly before being handed over to a new client.

•    You will get a weatherproofed container, which means that your items, whatever they are, will remain safe from damage so long as they are in storage.

•    You can access your items any time between 6 am and 6.30 pm. There is someone around at all times in case you need help.

•    All containers are on the ground and better yet, you can drive right up to yours.

Do I need to prepare anything to hire a storage container?

You have decided that it is time to de-clutter your home but there are some items that you just cannot bear to part with. You are not alone; not all the clutter in many homes is garbage; there are many items that are treasured and there is no need to lose them when you can simply hire a storage container. These containers are safe and they will keep your items until you have enough room to retrieve them. If you are a first timer in container hire you may be wondering if there is anything that you need to know or do in advance.

First, you will be happy to know that there is no paperwork; if you get a good storage facility all you need to do is pay the weekly fee (or monthly if you prefer) and then provide an address and telephone number. That said, there are some things that you need to do if you want to make storage easier. Planning smart will help you move your items efficiently. First is the packing. You want to pack your items in boxes which makes them easy to move and they will also fit better in your container. The boxes should be sturdy depending on what you put in them. You can get them at your local supermarket and there are also some storage facilities that have them for sale. Seal each box carefully to ensure that items are in place.

If you want to keep away items such as sofas, chairs, tables and other furniture it is best to cover them with breathable fabric such as cotton bed sheets. This will keep the dust off and there surfaces will be in good condition even if they are stored for a long time.

Once you have everything boxed it is time to decide the size of container that you need – they come in different sizes and you don’t want to pay for more space than is necessary. The best thing to do is to call a container storage company such as Boylin’s Self Store and get advice from them. They have a lot of experience when it comes to storage containers and they can help you determine the best container size for you. Once you choose and pay for a container all that is left is to transport your boxes and other items there. You can find a truck yourself or you can ask the storage company to help you.

What are the advantages of having my own storage container?

More and more people are choosing to rent storage containers and it is easy to see why. Storage containers can be rented out for personal use or for business use. People who rent storage containers for personal storage usually use them to store items that they collect through their hobbies or excessive furniture and other items that cannot fit in the home. People also rent personal storage containers when they are going abroad and don’t want to pay rent on real estate that they will not be using.

Another common reason for renting personal storage containers is to store eBay inventory. Many people are supplementing their income by selling goods on eBay on their free time.  Because they cannot store stock at home they choose storage containers which are affordable and safe. Tradesmen such as electricians, plumbers, painters and so on also use storage containers to store their tools and supplies – if they store them in their vans they are likely to attract vandals.

As for businesses, companies can rent storage containers for all sorts of reasons. One of the most common uses is document storage – there is no point in storing documents in the business premises when the space can be used in a more productive manner. Businesses also rent storage containers to store stock as well as finished products that are awaiting sale.

When you are looking for storage containers there are certain qualities that you should be looking for:

•    Safety and reliability. You want to use a storage container that has 24 hour-CCTV monitoring to deter thieves. If there are additional barriers such as fob or access keys it makes them even safer.

•    The facility that you choose should be affordable – there are some that are unnecessarily expensive.

•    Choose storage containers where all storage units are on ground level – if they are stacked and you get one that is high up you will have a hard time placing and removing items. It helps if you can drive right up to the door of your storage unit.

One such storage facility is Boylin’s Self Store. We have a number of storage facilities in the area and what makes us such a good choice is how secure their facilities are, with CCTV surveillance as well as additional barriers, you can access your storage container from ground level any time.

Is storage space in Bradford expensive?

As someone who is looking to rent a storage container in Bradford, one of the things you will take into account is cost. There are many Bradford storage facilities and you will notice that they all charge different prices – there are some that are quite expensive while there are others that have mind-blowing offers. When it comes to renting storage space, it is very important not to judge a book by its cover – just because a company is offering cheap storage space doesn’t mean that they are the best deal in town.

There are many problems with cheap storage. Usually, companies are able to offer very cheap containers because they don’t have storage facilities of the highest standards. It is quite possible that they are using old storage containers which are cheaper to acquire – all they do is paint them over to make them look new. The problem with old storage containers is that they rust and have tiny holes over time. If you store your items in one of these they will be damaged by condensation when it becomes cold and then hot. Also, storage facilities that are cheap often don’t have proper security.

So what kind of Bradford storage solutions should you be looking for cost-wise? The best ones are the ones that charge a reasonable fee for excellent storage. One such facility is Boylin’s Self Store. They charge just £16.99 p/w for a 150 sq ft storage container and you get first month’s rental at half price. For this, here is what you can expect to get:

•    Your container has 24 hour CCTV surveillance as well as a fob or a key to ensure that only you can gain access.

•    Your container will be on ground level which makes it easy for you to place and remove your stored items (beware of stacked containers as they can be quite a hassle to manage.

•    You will get only as much room as you need – the facility has containers in different size unlike many Bradford storage solutions that have containers in one size only.

•    Each container is weatherproof, which means that so long as your items are in storage they are safe from damage regardless of the weather.

•    You will get a clean container the same day you ask for it.
