How Self-Storage Can Help Your Edinburgh Business In 2014

How has 2013 measured for your business? The dawn of a new year presents the opportunity for company reviews, assessing the successes and failures of the previous 12 months. Following the festive season, business managers will begin to strategise new approaches to maximise returns over the forthcoming year. Across Edinburgh, businesses of different sizes store excess stock and surplus office furniture during periods of expansion or downsizing. Len Lothian Store & More is a family owned self-storage company, offering warehouse space and storage units across Scotland’s capital city, with two storage facilities in Sighthill and one based in Granton. Each facility provides affordable, secure lockers which serve to alleviate business pressures during busy phases of transition.

Relocation, Relocation

Whether you’re downgrading to smaller premises or moving to a larger site, moving property can be a stressful task for any business. Before your business can inhabit a new office complex, there is often a period after the tenancy of previous office space expires. A storage facility can safely store office furniture and hardware, helping to bridge the gap. Len Lothian Store & More even offer office space rental at their Sighthill facility; this enables businesses to continue work whilst in transition between premises.

Document and Furniture Storage

If your business has space issues, you may not even need to relocate. An overflow of files and longstanding documents reside in bursting filing cabinets and overstuffed desk drawers, yet are important to keep for posterity. Office trimmings such as Christmas decorations and spare flipcharts can reduce office clutter when preserved inside self-storage rooms in Edinburgh.

Stock Overflow

If you are planning to expand your operations in 2014 and are ordering in a lot of stock, then a storage facility is an appropriate option to place extra items. Most, such as Len Lothian Store & More, have convenient opening hours, allowing you to access your excess whenever stock levels need replenishing.


The new year could be a perfect time to renovate and redecorate your premises. Inspire workforce motivation with fresh surroundings, a pleasant welcome for staff returning from their Christmas breaks. An ideal business facility to store office furniture, documents and hardware will offer protection from damage during these renovations.

Hiring an Edinburgh-based business storage facility for 2014 could revolutionise the way your company operates. Whether you’re looking to improve on a below-par 2013 or a way to capitalise on success and continue momentum, utilising storage services could be the key to a very happy new year.
