Online blogs are sometimes slightly vague and miss the most important aspect of highlighting how to apply storage.

DIY Storage – Pros and Cons

Posted on September 10, 2021 by Henry

When we think about how we store things, the default position is to keep everything at home or in the office, where we have dedicated rooms or spaces. The problem with this begins when space runs out, and we start cramming things on top of wardrobes and under beds. For a workplace, change this to a back office or buying more filing cabinets.

Before you know it, you don’t have anywhere else for things to go. Not only that, you’ve lost a number of rooms in the process, and it starts to become a major problem, specifically for businesses where compliance and spacing regulations are strict. That’s why it’s important to consider how you’re currently storing things and whether it’s the best choice to do it yourself.

How to Declutter Your Business: What to Store and What to Throw Away

Posted on January 29, 2018 by Henry

The coming of spring is the perfect time to give your business a bit of a spring clean and declutter. It is always amazing how much paraphernalia accumulates overt the year and it is definitely worth taking a small amount of time at the end of each day to get your decluttering done and dusted.

Start with your office space

This more manageable task will help to get you in the right frame of mind to tackle the more important jobs. This doesn’t mean that you have to completely redecorate your office but perhaps make sure that any old equipment is recycled and that your desk is tidy and all of your files are in order. Encourage others to do so and make sure you take the time to properly review the way that your works pace is arranged – it makes a lot more difference than you think.

Buy new supplies

Once you have sorted through office clutter, now is the time to think about new office supplies which will help you keep your work space clear throughout the year. For example, colour coded files and labels to help you arrange and order them.

Is your software up to date?

This is another important part of decluttering your business. Up to date systems improve efficiency in a business. More modern Customer Relationship Management Software will enable you to keep better tabs on sales, manage customer information and retain your client base.

Look over your inventory

Unnecessary waste is regularly caused by businesses overstocking. Make sure you take the time to look over your wareshouse and speak to staff members. You want to be efficient in your storage of stock and insure that you are not constantly paying for the storage of unsold stock. Old and damaged stock should also be another concern.

Glastonbury Storage with inStore

Posted on July 18, 2017 by Henry

Well, we did it again, another year another brilliant festival, our Glastonbury storage clients were, we hope, over the moon or should I say high as a kite with our services this year.

But, I’m jumping ahead of myself, we’re storage specialists with an in-depth knowledge of possessions and how people interact with their possessions, their cares, likes and dislikes.  But Glastonbury is something different and we are very well-positioned to help all sorts of businesses and people with their storage needs over the Glastonbury Festival.

And, before you start to think we’re some sort of cloakroom service for coats and peoples bags and what not.  That’s not us either.  We much further in the background than that, and that’s something we really rather like.  We’re facilitators with a facility.

What we offer is storage for the 360 days that the Festival is not on.  All the time that Glastonbury Festival is just a lovely green field, that is when we’re active.  We are on-call 24/7 all year-round, but if you are a band, a marquee company or a Pop-Up Hotel or caterer and you have any special kit for Glasto and perhaps a few other festivals then we’re the people you should be in touch with.

Our service is complimentary, we can pick up or delivery, we can arrange for your kit to be in the right place at the right time, if you need it a few weeks in advance we can have it there.  But not only that we can provide a venue for you to clean the kit, scrub everything down, dry it out, mend, repair or take delivery of new or replacement kit.  We’re partners to anyone wanting to store their possessions ready for Glastonbury.

To be honest, it gets hectic, it one of the busiest times of year for us, phone calls, organising, making sure we have the right vans in the right place is logistical, but that’s what makes our Glastonbury storage so much fun for us.  It is a challenge, we turn up the volume and enjoy it all.  Plus we get to see the behind the scenes at the venue.

If you need storage personal or business – try us, get a quote or give us a call.

Data Storage – IT, Computers and The Modern Age

Posted on June 5, 2017 by Henry

Yes we live in the country and yes Internet Access has been an issue in the countryside – but it is much improved today.  What I want to look at now is IT Storage and Data Storage for businesses and why you might need it – or not as the case may be.

Regulation – is the main word that sums it all up.  In the good ol’ days you used to have to store every Invoice, every expense and every piece of information for your business for years, in fact most companies just stored everything for ever.  But the world has moved on and with the Internet things are changing.

Today we have the so-called ‘Cloud’ – the concept is fabulous, you save an email on your PC and it’s automatically up their in the sky waiting until someone needs it it again.  Same for Invoicing, suppliers, addresses, we’re all connected on our phones, at home and much begrudgingly to me wife when we’re on holiday as well.  In fact I can even write these articles and the data is saves for posterity forever.

However – all too often we hear of people with broken computers, they can’t find their document, or something didn’t save somewhere it should have and this leads to a huge regulatory problem, not only are you probably not saving your documents properly, but you’re opening yourself up to serious problems should the VAT man ever come and check up on you.

There is also something called a Disaster Recovery Plan – that every business should have so that if there is a true disaster such as a fire or other emergency you could be covered and up and running within a minimal amount of time.

In steps – inStore Storage Solutions – as part of the Disaster Recovery Plan you would allow or delivery to inStore a regular back up of all data and document storage that is important to your business.  Our data storage experts would be the 3rd party outside off-premise storage facilitators for your company needs.

We have the hardware and computers for this operation and we also allow you to put in your own hardware as required into our storage facility, where-upon we can take responsibility for the storage of your data as needed.  Should you ever need to use it – it could be made available to you 24/7 around the clock.

We do live in the country, but with super fast broadband available here there is no reason why our location should ever matter to a large business organisation needing a place for data Storage.

Need storage in Mere – Spring is here

Posted on March 22, 2017 by Henry

Storage in Mere

Spring is here in Mere (nearly) and as the morning frost has its last word the sun starts to take its place. There is something about spring and the sunny mornings and evening on the horizon that makes me want to have a spring clear out ready for what summer has to bring.

Our main warehouse in Mere, Wiltshire just off the A-303 offers the perfect place to stash your spring clear out items, whether you have a small bungalow or a gigantic office, we all need our space to think. That is where we come in.

 

Residential, Specialist, Removals, Commercial, Business, Relocation

 

We can secure insurance on any item stored with us, we wrap & pack, fetch & carry, store & more – all on demand.

inStore started in Wincanton as a family venture combining practical skills and experience with traditional values. Our work ethic is focused exclusively towards you, the customer. And our mission is to create a calm, stress-free, experience for every customer, every time so that you keep on coming back. inStore takes the load, literally.

 

Mere is a small town, It lies at the extreme southwestern tip of the Salisbury Plain, close to the borders of Somerset and Dorset. The A-303 truck road passed through Mere until a bypass was built on the northern edge of the town in 1976. There is an old market square (although markets have not been held for several years), a chiming town clock and large 15th-century parish church.

The steep slope of Castle Hill rises from the northwestern side of Mere. Local industry and commerce includes the Hill Brush company which was based next door to our warehouse, but has very recently moved to the outskirts on the other side of Mere having build a brand new factory.
