Five ways growing pharmaceutical businesses take advantage of self storage


Running a pharmaceutical business is certainly no walk in the park. The administration alone can be daunting, whether it be managing the mountain of paperwork, organising the endless array of supplies or working on tight delivery schedules. Most successful pharmaceutical companies keep their businesses streamlined so as to be efficient, and to ensure that no errors creep in.

One of the biggest challenges for pharmaceutical companies is how best to manage a large inventory of stock as this usually requires a lot of organisation and even more space. There is no room for error in the medical industry and so it is crucial that a system is developed to keeps stock organised and accessible.

An increasing number of pharmaceutical companies are looking towards business self storage as a means of efficiently storing stock, which not only keeps their inventory safe but also accessible.

Here are five ways that self storage can assist in keeping your pharmaceutical stock organised so that you can focus on growing your business.

  1. Flexible space

In addition to a variety of different unit sizes to choose from, you can also upsize (or downsize) whenever needed. This means that you are only paying for the space that you need, for as long as you need it.

  1. Clean space

When working with medical supplies, it is important that your storage space is clean. Most reputable self storage companies offer units that are clean and well-maintained. If you feel your storage unit is not as clean as it could be, find another self storage provider. If they can’t look after their own space, there is no reason they will look after your valuables.

  1. Accessibility

One of the greatest benefits of self storage is accessibility. At Stor-Age many of our facilities are accessible 24/7, which means that you are not restricted to business hours to manage and distribute your stock. If you encounter an emergency in the early hours of the morning, your self storage unit can be easily accessed as needed. We also offer free use of our trolleys to assist in moving your stock to and from your unit. 

  1. Good security

Building up a stock of medical equipment is a significant investment and so it is important that you keep your stock safe. Our self storage facilities are built with a focus on security, which includes entry tag access control, a 24-hour CCTV network, electrified perimeter fencing (and in some facilities infrared beams),your unit is locked with your own padlock and you retain the key.

  1. Save money

Self storage can also help you save money by providing a low-cost alternative to warehousing or office space. The flexibility of the contract allows you to upscale or downscale your unit size, only paying for storage space that you need. A convenient location is also a plus, and with 50 stores across the country there is a good chance that there is a Stor-Age Self Storage facility near you.
