Struggling To Keep Up With Your Business Schedule? Self Storage May Be The Answer

As a result of the ever-evolving business landscape, your schedule can change at the drop of a hat. If you are not flexible and resilient, you may struggle to keep ahead of your competitors. 

When it comes to starting or running a business, Storage King understands the importance of flexibility, convenience and accessibility which is why we ensure that these qualities are integral to our service.

Phil Jones’ story

Phil Jones, an engineer for a national security and vehicle tracking business operating across the UK, needed to organise his own storage space for work tools and materials. He also needed an address to accept his business deliveries when he was unable to.

His work requires that he organises a secure method of storage for the expensive tools and stock needed to carry out fittings across the country. One of the most important conditions is that these remain accessible 24 hours a day, to fit into his hectic schedule.

It was while fitting a security system to a neighbouring building that Phil first spotted Storage King in Aylesford. He had previously spoken with a competitor in Chatham, but they would charge £6 per delivery to the store.

Forced to shop around, Phil ended up speaking with Laurence, the store manager at Storage King in Aylesford. Phil found that all the staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating of his business. He found that he could have deliveries sent straight to the store, at no extra cost and without him needing to be present! With up to six deliveries arriving at the unit each week, he’s ended up making huge savings.

Phil comments on Storage King service, “Really, really good. You just can’t fault them!”

It’s not just the flexibility of service and having a location for business deliveries, but the convenience of 24/7 access that drew Phil to Storage King. As Phil travels across the country for work, he needs to be up in the early hours of the morning. The electronic gates allow customers to come and go as they please and allow Phil to be at his unit at 4 o’clock in the morning to prepare for the day. Phil was unable to find this level of convenience and flexibility in competitors, which is why he keeps coming back.
