The value of self-storage for market traders
Self-storage can have a number of benefits for traders.
Savings in costs and labour
Proximity to market is one of the keys to business success. Self-storage provides that. It’s a place to store retail stock close to popular Johannesburg markets.
This means significant savings in time and money transporting goods to and from markets. This time can be spent on marketing, trading and growing the business.
Moving goods in and out of XtraSpace self-storage units is expedited by:
- street-level entry points
- ample off-road parking
- drive-in access to ground-level units.
Items can be picked up or dropped off directly from the boot of a car or the back of a bakkie or van.
Trolleys are available for moving bulky objects, or high volumes of stock, in and out of storage.
Maximised protection of retail items
As market traders invest a lot of money in stock, especially over busy trading periods, the security and safety of items is paramount.
At XtraSpace, we don’t cut corners when it comes to protecting our customers’ inventories against theft, fire and flood.
Our units are clean, damp-proof and self-lockable. All XtraSpace branches are fully compliant with fire-safety regulations. Premises are securely fenced and well illuminated at night. Access is strictly controlled by onsite security. Units are monitored around the clock, with CCTV-surveillance cameras.
We also provide our clients with insurance on all stored items.
Affordable storage for excess stock
Keeping up with seasonal market demands entails buying large amounts of inventory when the price is right. Often, that’s out of season.
Self-storage is an affordable off-peak solution that can be scaled up or down when required.
Flexible access to inventory
An advantage of our storage for market traders in Johannesburg is easy access.
As an XtraSpace customer, you lock your own storage unit and keep the key.
You can then access your unit any time you want during business hours.
Our branches are also open on Saturdays until 2 p.m. – or later by prior arrangement. For example, staff who stay in and around the city centre often accommodate requests for flexible weekend hours at our Commissioner Street branch.
What traders can and can’t store in self-storage units
All consumer goods, from fragile glass- and kitchen-ware, jewellery and electronic appliances to clothing, books, sporting equipment, furniture and household accessories, can be stored in XtraSpace self-storage units.
The only items we don’t accept are flammable materials, firearms and explosives, illegal goods, perishable food, live animals and plants.
