Are you running your small business from your home? Is the business taking over your home with piles of inventory and paperwork as it consumes your personal space, not to mention infringing on your family?
Perhaps it’s about time you do something about it and move your operations to a more professional place. But renting an office space is not cheap and may be a costly decision for your start-up business. Before you think about adding significant costs to your business with an expensive office space lease agreement, consider an alternative operating model and save a ton of cash.
Renting any of the cheapest self-storage in Singapore will only incur a fraction of the cost and provides a functioning work space so you can run your business and serve your clients just as well. Here are businesses that should consider having a work storage unit.
