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.

So, what is my point… Firstly it is about how big companies advertise… For sure we want you guys reading this to think of us for your Storage, but more than that we don’t want you to travel half way across the country when there is probably a perfectly good local place near you.  Why do people that live in Wincanton have to go Bristol for their storage needs.  We’re here!

Second – come on Google – we’re in Wincanton – why are you not directing people towards our services in Wincanton for the people of Wincanton.  I know the mysteries of Google are great and we all feel that, but if I cannot find a storage company that is actually located where I live – then what hope do I have if I want a Pizza, or to see a film, am I going to have to travel half way across southern England just because Googles says that is my nearest result.

Now, onto Self Storage Units, call us old fashioned, but we’ve been around a long time and we know a little about about what we do, we hope we do it well and with a smile – truly we do. But what is self storage and surely we do that and more.  We have storage units, we just call them storage containers, we collect and deliver possessions from and to their owners, there’s no need for you to even visit our warehouses, but you can if you want to… we are completely flexible, state a time or just turn up, the door will always be open to our client.  Unlike these new entrants on the stage where the door is firmly locked until you present the right credentials – more numbers to remember.

But it’s more than that – we’re personal, our self storage units are run by local people, some of whom you will find in the pub in Wincanton, we’re not going to destroy or throw your possessions away if you don’t pay – we’e going to talk to you, we’re not going to block your access if you haven’t paid, or stitch you up in extra fees and costs because you’re in trouble.

Think of us like a Petrol Station – sure you can put your own fuel in, but there is an attendant there to help if needed, our self storage units are better than self storage units, ours come with people and with that comes knowledge, politeness and friendliness.

Now come on Google – sort this out and provide a better service for your customers looking for self storage units in Wincanton.
