More than a third of the working population in the UK now works from home at least some of the time. And there are a lot of benefits that come with remote working. You may find you have a healthier work/life balance. You might enjoy having more flexibility, or love not having to commute.
But there are downsides, too. And one of the biggest challenges remote employees face is space.
Home-based workers are often told not to work from the sofa, where it can be difficult to feel productive. Or from the kitchen table where there might be distractions. Or from bed, which can cause muscle aches. Instead, experts are advising employees to work from dedicated home offices.
But most of us don’t have a spare room lying around.
If you’re creating a dedicated workspace at home, chances are you’re having to repurpose an existing space. This space may already be cluttered – and now it’s got to house your files and folders, too.
The good news is that self storage can help.
Self storage for employees who work remotely
At Clear Space, we offer self storage solutions for employees who are working remotely. We’re on a mission to take the stress out of managing your workload from home in the following ways:
1.Helping you create a productive home office environment
If you need to declutter one of the rooms in your home in order to fit in a work desk, chair, computer, filing system, and more, we can help. Our 25 square foot (or larger) units are ideal for temporarily storing wardrobes, cupboards, guest beds, exercise equipment, or anything else while you work remotely. This is a great way to free up more space, allowing you to work comfortably and productively.
2.Storing your work documents
If your physical office has closed down, you might be struggling to store boxes of paperwork under your desk, in your garage, or anywhere else. Why not store it with us? Our locker units can be secured for as little as £5 per week. They’re the ideal size for documents, paperwork, and other items that are important to keep safe, but don’t need to be accessed day-to-day.
Advantages of self storage with Clear Space include:
● No long term contracts. Returning to the office in the near future? No problem.
● Units that can be accessed 7 days a week, so you can get to your documents when you need them.
● Clean, dry, well-lit, and climate-stable units to protect your valuable items and documents.
● Trolleys to help you transport heavy boxes of paperwork/furniture – or you can choose a drive-up unit.
● Peace of mind that your own items and work documents are stored safely and securely.
● Affordability: creating a productive home office doesn’t need to be costly.
Struggling to find the space you need to work from home? Self storage could be the answer. Get in touch with us to discuss your needs, and find a storage solution that can help you work productively.
