Within the self-storage industry, businesses account for a quarter of all self storage customers in the United Kingdom.
A business customer who stores at Apex Self Storage in Congleton was happy to share why they decided to open the second half of their business at a self-storage facility rather than go down the traditional route of buying or leasing their own property.
Town Trade Supplies is the sister company of Town Bathrooms, which is based within the heart of Congleton town centre. The owners of the business Trevor and Leigh made the enquiry looking for a large unit of up to 800 square feet, as they were looking for a suitable space to start up Town Trade Supplies which to sell building supplies to the bathroom fitters in the North West. One of the key factors for the business to operate the way they needed it to was that they would require the unit to be accessible to their customers 24 Hours – 7 Days a Week.
Trevor from Town Bathrooms – “Apex is so convenient not only for the location but for our deliveries, we have 24hr access, so we can trade whenever we like. The girls at Apex Self Storage Congleton have been great they are efficient, friendly and knowledgeable.”
Once they visited Apex Self Storage Congleton and discussed the needs for their business with the Team onsite, they soon realised how simple and stress free the process was going to be, especially with NO FIXED LONG-TERM CONTRACT which gave them peace of mind that if Town Trade Supplies didn’t take off as expected they weren’t tied to a long-term lease. Another important factor was that there was room to expand in the future.
In fact, they are currently looking to expand to the second half of the unit after just 6 months of storing with Apex Self Storage.
Good luck guys… To be continued…
