South Africa’s online marketplace is expanding rapidly. Several standalone eCommerce businesses, such as Spree, Takealot.com, Style36 and 5 Rooms, have made names for themselves, and retail and auction platforms like Gumtree.co.za, Kalahari.com and bidorbuy.co.za are wildly popular.
However, like other businesses, eCommerce businesses face competition and tough economic pressures. To survive, they need to think out of the box, coming up with innovative business solutions to cut costs and generate profits.
One increasingly popular and successful strategy is to make use of the space and business services offered by a storage provider.
XtraSpace Self Storage offers self-storage units ranging in size from 3 to 50 square metres, making them ideal for a very wide range of storage needs.
Our self-storage units are neat, hygienic and clean. Anything from designer clothing and collectibles to baked goods and antique furniture can be safely stored at our high-security facilities in Durban, Johannesburg or Cape Town.
An important advantage is that XtraSpace Self Storage offers monthly leases. This means you can easily scale up or down, leasing a larger or smaller unit as your business requirements change. So you’ll never be locked into a lease agreement for premises that no longer match your needs.
Durable packaging materials and trolleys are available onsite to expedite the packing process.
XtraSpace offers a full range of business services. The majority of our self-storage facilities have fully equipped business centres. As an eCommerce business owner, you can manage web-based orders via our e-mail, fax and copying services.
XtraSpace also provides a domestic and international courier service, and offers trailer hire for local deliveries.
If you require more formal business premises to complement your onsite presence, why not consider our value-for-money flexi-offices? These offices are an innovative and affordable alternative to traditional business spaces.
Benefits include short-term lease agreements, secure parking, high-end security and the flexibility to size up or down according to your needs.
