For a long time, self storage has been a great solution for many expanding businesses in Dartford. With flexible leases, units of various sizes and convenient access, an increasing amount of businesses are using self storage as a means of growing their businesses, while at the same time keeping costs as low as possible.
Darran Howard is one such businessman who has used Storage King Dartford to grow his company. If fact, all three of his companies!
Darran runs three small businesses in Dartford, which range from fitness and health to menswear designs. After using his garage as a business space, Darran needed to upgrade to a bigger, better space that would allow his businesses to thrive. He didn’t want to have to sign up to expensive and lengthy property contracts though.
He initially used Storage King Dartford to safely store various items for his menswear business, mostly clothes in between appearances at market stalls. As he expanded his personal training business, he needed a space to meet with clients before training them at the gym. He now rents multiple 150 sq. ft. units at Storage King’s Dartford branch.
Darran has used his business self storage to develop the space to best suit his needs, whether it be a larger space to see clients or a smaller space for storing his items safely. Storage King rearranged the walls between his four units to accommodate this. To make the space more client-friendly, Storage King also installed lighting and allowed him to install carpeting. He also displays his menswear clothing on rails in the space, allowing him to cross-sell products to his clients.
Darran has commented on the friendliness of the Storage King staff and how they emphasise customer service through small acts such as calling him when he has a customer at reception, to making his customers a cup of tea if they have to wait. This all adds to the value he gets from the Storage King Dartford.
Comments Darran, “I’ve recommended a lot of my own customers to Storage King over the last seven years and will continue to do so.’’
There are many appealing factors: the convenient location right off the M25, the security of the premises, the friendly service and the flexible space.
