This thriving business selling home furnishings on eBay and Amazon grew rapidly, taking advantage of Lok’nStore’s flexible self storage right from the start.
As soon as this business got going they realised that they’d need storage. They “did look around for other storage units, but found this [Lok’nStore] was the best deal” based on the “flexibility and service and location – and value”. They realised that they needed the flexibility to grow the business as its needs changed. They say of Lok’nStore, the “fantastic thing about it is we can keep adding bays on as we go … it’s flexible”. They also needed the convenience for “loading and unloading. It’s so easy because of the parking”. As with all young businesses will understand, they wanted something without “any kind of liability”. They say they didn’t want the “massive commitment of renting … leasing – for us it absolutely works”. As the business grew and added a hire service, they could increase the space they had at Lok’nStore as they needed it. They praise the Lok’nStore staff as “very flexible … they always help us”.
For this business, flexibility is not just about being able to take on more space as they expand. It’s also about what they’ve called the “flexibility of time” they get from having someone to deal with couriers when they’re not there – even at weekends.
