eBay, e-commerce and Amazon Traders – Storage Options to Suit Your Business
E-commerce traders are part of one of the fastest growing employment and purchasing markets in the UK, and for anyone who’s interested in how e-commerce works, it’s an ideal way to enter into the sector whilst gaining first-hand experience, without having to resort to free or low-paid work. Popular sites like eBay and Amazon have opened up a huge potential to traders to buy and sell materials and products with a huge audience available at the click of a button.
One issue that e-commerce traders have is finding a suitable space to operate from. Whilst running your business from home is a great way to cut the monthly overhead of renting a separate space, it can create a limitation to how much stock you can have on-hand, as well as introducing the risk of damage and/or theft to your products and/or equipment.
Your home isn’t a suitable place to store products, nor is it always an ideal place to work from, as it creates an issue with separating work from home-life, which is an essential thing to divide – we need quality downtime so we can perform at our best.
So how do you find a suitable work space that can accommodate your stock and materials within an affordable budget? The answer is Lock & Leave.
At Lock & Leave we offer a unique way to use our self storage rooms for your entire e-commerce business. You can rent out a storage room for your stock and materials, and you can rent a second room to run your business, as an affordable alternative office. We are seeing an increasing number of start-up businesses and sole traders use our facilities as their base of operations due the lower monthly overheads in comparison with typical commercial rental rates.
With 24/7 access you can trade via eBay and Amazon to suit the needs of you and your customers, making international business easier and more fluent. Need to contact a buyer in the US on their time zone? Why not rent office space where you don’t have to jump through hoops to gain access at unsociable hours.
We offer top-notch security measures to ensure that your stock is safe and secure when you’re not there. Each branch has CCTV monitoring as standard, and we have a member of staff at each branch 7-days a week.
Our reception staff are happy to collect and sign for packages when you’re not there, and they will retain the parcels for you. We have a range of packing materials available to purchase at each branch in case you have an urgent package to send and you’ve ran out.
E-commerce traders using eBay and Amazon make up an exciting sector of modern business that is ever-changing and needs to have storage and operating spaces that are as fluid and interchangeable as possible, without breaking the monthly budget. Why not join the companies, free lancers, and sole traders that are already using our self storage facilities for their businesses.
