Self Storage Busier Than Ever With Seasonal Stocks

Wednesday, 16th December 2009
The festive period has led to enormous demand for storage in London with companies and individuals stocking up with extra goods for Christmas and New Year. Around this time many existing storage facilities struggle to cope with the sudden arrival of the huge volumes of goods imported in shipping containers to be sold for Christmas. The downturn in trade has meant that consumers are holding off from making purchases with many waiting until the January sales if at all to buy. This creates an additional burden for business as sales drop and their warehouses burst at the seams. Many companies in Essex have now decided to look to self storage as an overflow to deal with the influx. The flexible nature of short term leases means they can take a view month on month and adjust quickly to suit retail trends. As sales pick up and stocks deplete leases can be terminated quickly reducing overheads and maximising profit. In stark contrast to the high street, internet sales have seen one of the busiest periods for some time. Stores and traders are now finding less need to have expensive high street premises and shop fronts. An effective and well managed web site coupled with low cost local self storage means that on line goods can be stored and dispatched economically and efficiently.
