If you’re starting up a new business, congratulations, A.B. Richards wishes you good luck. We’ve been in business for more than 30 years and we know how rewarding it can be. Businesses create jobs and help stimulate the economy, but it’s also a difficult proposition running a business. You need to save money until revenue comes in and you’ll want to find every edge you can.
A.B. Richards Can Help Startups Save Money and Space
One major potential cost is storage. If you’re in the midst of a startup, you may not have enough office or retail space to support the inventory you want to keep. Finding more office space can be expensive and it’s totally unnecessary if you’re using the space for storage. A better solution is to rent portable storage containers from A.B. Richards. We make storage convenient, easy and we’ll save you both money and space.
Portable Storage Units Solve Your Space Problems
There were about 450,000 startups in 2014, according to CNN. A lot of them don’t even have offices. According to the online publication Small Business Trends, 69 percent of US entrepreneurs start their businesses at home. If you’re one of them, you’re going to need a place for storage. Whether you have a need for extra inventory, need to store seasonal items or office furniture, or if you require a place to store your records, A.B. Richards can provide you with that additional space. If you have a home-based business, our 20-foot storage containers are perfect for residential use and can be conveniently delivered to most properties.
Portable Storage Containers Make More Sense Than Renting Office Space
If you do rent office space for your start-up, make sure you’re using them for office purposes, not for storage because you’re throwing away money otherwise.
- A.B. Richards charges $89 per month for our 20-foot storage containers. With 149 square feet of storage available, that comes out to 60 cents per square foot.
