Storage and Man & Van for Start-ups in Bath
From humble beginnings, great things can grow, and no truer words are applicable to new startups in Bath and Somerset. By starting your enterprise in a location like Bath, you’re in the centre of an ideal business and consumer environment. This will encourage growth, but it’s worth remembering that the secret to success is to survive the first year by breaking even or avoiding huge losses.
Keeping your overheads low and avoiding any unnecessary expenses is the key to finding your feet and putting down a solid foundation. Finding affordable places to work is one outgoing that plays a crucial role in lowering costs and remaining in your financial lane. At Thomas Firbank, we’re always keen to help with any advice on how startups can navigate their first year in business.
How Your Company Can Benefit from a Man & Van Service –
Thomas Firbank works with several startups in Bath every week, and we’re always looking for new ways to help other new enterprises. Many of our startup and SME clients use two services for their business: man & van and storage. And one industry that our man with a van package is ideal for is the e-commerce sector.
The reason why this package is so popular is its cost-saving potential. By using our Man and Van service, you don’t need to invest money in a vehicle straight away. You’ll have the use of a small removals van with two members of our removals crew to help with any heavy-lifting duties. Our rates are low, and the standard of our service is high.
Then, it’s possible to use one of our self storage units as a workspace. Our startup and SME clients then streamline their process by linking their storage unit to our man and van service. The deliveries and collections happen seamlessly between the two, and our reception staff can also accept packages on your behalf.
Self Storage and Affordable Places to Work in Bath –
People tend to think of storage as a container or room, made of brick or metal. With the main use is storing old furniture. And while that’s factually true (except the furniture), it’s also very limiting to think like this. There’s plenty of room for flexibility or innovation if you update your mindset to rethink what this blank space might represent. Then the possibilities increase ten-fold.
This is more than just a whimsical idea – why not use a self storage unit to work from? You have a room where you can put some basic office equipment with plenty of space for other items. Just add a computer, a printer, and router and you have a makeshift office. Each Thomas Firbank storage unit has access to electricity, and our branch has lots of other facilities available.
Then there’s the primary function of a storage unit – somewhere to store things like equipment, products, materials, and so on. You can divide your storage unit into separate sections by using some tape for each part. It might not be a long-term solution, but this is all about getting your startup enterprise up and running.
A storage unit could be an affordable way to kickstart your entrepreneurial ambitions with an affordable option for a workspace. Furthermore, once you outgrow your storage unit, it’s possible to find commercial rental property and keep your unit for surplus stock.
