For many businesses, the Christmas rush brings a welcome trading boost. Understandably, businesses want to make the most of the festive period and the sales it generates.

One of the challenges they face is storing all that extra stock. This can put a strain on already “fit-to-burst” store rooms. Alternatively, it can mean having a stock room that is too large for the rest of the year.

Luckily, there is a convenient and cost-effective solution. Self-storage is the perfect answer when it comes to coping with seasonal stock-level fluctuations.

Here are just a few of the many benefits of using a self-storage unit for your Christmas Stock:

1.    Self-storage unlocks increased sales at Christmas time

Even in the best times, businesses want to make the most of the Christmas rush. In turbulent times like we are facing today, this is even more important.

A self-storage unit gives you plenty of space to hold increased stock and make the most of the Christmas sales rush. Paying for extra space for the entire year to make room for Christmas stock just doesn’t make sense. With a self-storage unit, you can have space for stock for exactly the period you need.

This helps businesses maximise their sales over the festive period and eases the frustration of missing out on lost sales opportunities.

2.    Self-storage keeps you, your staff, and your goods safe

Safety in the workplace is always a concern. At Christmas time, with stockrooms bursting at the seams and staff under pressure, this combination can be an accident waiting to happen.

A self-storage unit gives you room to store your Christmas stock in a manner that is safe for your staff and your precious stock. At Belfast Self Storage, we can even provide racking and shelves to help keep your unit safe and organised.

3.    Keep your Customers satisfied

 Happy and satisfied customers are essential for keeping a positive brand image. At the busiest time of year, this can be difficult to achieve with a cramped and overflowing stockroom.

This is even more critical for businesses that dispatch orders. Being a day or two late with an order is never good for the reputation of a business, but at Christmas time, this is even worse.

The logistics of dealing with a rush of orders in cramped and disorganised storerooms can be a nightmare. A self-storage unit gives you the room to stay organised and get all those orders dispatched in time for Christmas.

4.    A self-storage unit is great for online sellers too!

Countless online retailers operate from small premises or even their homes. This is a fantastic way of keeping overheads down and can work perfectly for most of the year.

Christmas is often a different matter, though and can be made worse if you already have a house full of festive guests! Self-storage units offer a simple, convenient, and cost-effective solution that can allow you to keep on top of orders without filling your home or office full of stock.

It also allows plenty of space to stay organised and keep those orders flowing out the door!

5.    Cost-effective, convenient, and flexible

There are many benefits of using a self-storage unit over the Christmas period. But it only makes sense to use one if it works for you. At Belfast Storage, we want to make it easy for you to enjoy the benefits of a self-storage unit this Christmas.
