The mail order business can be very profitable if you have the right product. If you’ve figured out your demographic, have a solid business plan and a supplier for the product you want to sell, you’re on your way to being an entrepreneur. These days the internet can serve as your storefront, but you’ll still need a place to store your inventory. Don’t let a little thing like space hold you back from starting your business. The Lock Up can help you get your business on its feet.
With units ranging in size from 5’x5′ up to 10’x30′, you’re guaranteed to have enough space for your widgets, or whatever you’ve decided to sell. Even if you have a delicate product such as electronics, The Lock Up has a solution in their climate controlled units. These units are maintained at an even temperature and humidity level that are closely monitored so you can rest assured that your product is stored in stable conditions and not being subjected to damaging wild temperature fluctuations.
Having a climate controlled self storage unit also helps to protect the packaging for your product. Cardboard boxes are like sponges in a way and if kept in a damp area, they can get musty or even worse, moldy. By keeping your packaging materials in your Lock Up self storage unit alongside your product, you’ll not only streamline your shipping process, but you’ll also ensure that your customer will not receive a musty, moldy box.
Another great perk to having a Lock Up Self Storage unit is that you can have deliveries of your product sent to your Lock Up facility. The on site manager can receive these packages while you’re busy working on your business. This removes the concern of having to be at your home office to receive product deliveries and saves you time because you don’t have to then transport your goods to your Lock Up storage unit.
The Lock Up Self Storage prides itself on maintaining impeccable facilities and top of the line security measures. This means that when you need to go to your self storage unit to deal with inventory, you’ll be both comfortable and safe. And with helpful and friendly staff and management on site during business hours that work for you, visiting your inventory storage unit will likely be a highlight to your workday.
If you’ve been toying with the idea of starting your own mail order business and the last piece of the puzzle is a place to store your product, think no more. Go to www.thelockup.com to find the nearest Lock Up Self Storage facility and get your business on the road to success.
