Why start an eBay business in self storage?

The job role of an online seller involves mastering many tasks, and usually being able to do more than two things at once! Think of this as the start of something wonderful with everlasting possibilities. A self storage unit will permit you to create, store, market, buy and sell from one place in an organised fashion, if you’re willing to put the work in, you’ll reap the profits!

De-cluttering your living space is one positive aspect; the other is that you’ll finally have a chance to keep your work and home space separate. You can access your storage unit at any time during our opening hours. Additionally, you are free to meet customers at the unit so that heavier items can be collected from you within a secure environment.

1. Rent a self storage unit

The flexibility of your own self storage unit will enable you to match your storage needs to annual sales, therefore never wasting money on unneeded space.

By renting a self storage unit, you’ll have complete autonomy over your stock in a secure yet accessible place. Increasing productivity and offering more chance to commit to getting stock boxed, bagged and posted, your very own secure space will be your go-to for selling and stocking.

At Your Store Exeter, we offer a range of various sized units, so whatever your stock, you can upgrade and downgrade at your own leisure. You’re not restricted to one size and when the business grows and profits, your convenient and cost-effective stock-keep can alter.

>>We can guide you on how to choose the right size unit.

Once you’ve hired your storage unit, you can begin labelling and boxing up all of your stock with your own or the boxes that we can provide. Labelling and separating out is a productive way to organise, so whether you’re selling video games, clothes, art or accessories, you’ll enter your storage unit knowing exactly where to find what you’re looking for.
