Starting a new business can be a risky endeavor, but the satisfaction of owning your own company, creating your own products, and connecting with customers can be a great reward. There are many things you need to do to start a new business, and once you have inventory, you need a place to keep it safe. At EZ Storage® in St. Louis, we’ve helped many new business owners keep their products secure, and we can help you find a suitable storage unit once your new company is up and running. In this blog, we’ll cover some tips for starting your business and rotating your inventory.

No business can get off the ground without a sound plan. It’s important to map out how your business will be financed, how it will be run, and how you envision engaging your customer base. Everything from business locations to store location should be included in your plan, and you’ll want to decide what type of business you will have – a sole proprietorship, a limited liability corporation (LLC), or another structure. Research listings in your community for tax planning classes, training programs, and other courses that can help you start your business.

Building Your Inventory

If you’re creating your products from scratch, you’ll have to think about how you’ll raise the capital for the raw materials. This might also require machinery to streamline production so you can build inventory quickly and see a return on investment sooner rather than later. You’ll also have to think about storing your products, and that’s where our storage facility comes in. You might be renting a retail space or only have limited room in your home (if you’re running your business out of your house), and keeping your inventory secure should be a top priority. We have storage units in various sizes that can protect products of all sizes, and our staff will gladly help you find the best option for your business.

Rotating Your Stock

If your business involves seasonal items, such as clothing or recreational gear, you may need to rotate stock every few months. With our monthly leasing options, you can pay for the months you need storage and access your unit when you want. If you need to upgrade to a larger storage space or downsize for a few months, we’ll gladly work with you on finding the ideal option. We want to make business storage as easy as possible!
