Small Businesses That Can Benefit

Small Businesses That Can Benefit

Singaporean entrepreneurs are known for their versatility and ingenuity. One way start-ups and small businesses have come up with of making ‘the most out of business resources’ is by using self-storage to streamline business functions.

Several business types can benefit immensely from extra storage. However, there are also other advantages such as better inventory management and shared services solutions in self-storage and warehouses. We explore the types of businesses that can employ self-storage units to streamline their operations.


Businesses such as an accounting firm have the opportunity to carry out the daily operations from an alternative space as compared to a more traditional base. Storage units can easily be converted into a fully functioning working space to work and store all the important paperwork for your clients. Fortunately, these units also cost a small margin of what a traditional office would cost.

DIY Business

There is only so much you can do and achieve from your spare bedroom or home if you are running a DIY business such as arts and craft and jewellery-making. Industrial spaces and storage units can be easily converted into a fully functioning work space. You can also store your tools, carry out your work and arrange deliveries to your customers efficiently.

Photo Studio

Even in a self-storage unit, it can be the ideal setting for a professional photo studio. With some adjustments such as proper backdrops and lighting, these are key to producing good photos. It is also a good working space for you to take your clients for discussions and also serve as an area for video production and editing photos. Moreover, you will have the space to
store your equipment such as tripod, flashes, lighting and backdrops.

If you are expecting clients regularly, finding a good location for your business is crucial. For example, an 
industrial space for rent in Ang Mo Kio MRT offers easy accessibility for you and your team members to commute daily, as well as be in proximity with major roads and transportation network.

Our property at 38 Ang Mo Kio Industrial Park 2 is located between AMK Ave 3 and Ave 5 with feeder bus services to the MRT station and accessibility to the main road where more bus services are available. Unit size ranges from 100 to 6,225 sqft and are suitable for clean & light B1 and B2 industrial, ancillary office and warehouse usage. Amenities within the property include cargo and passenger lifts, in-house eatery, corporate frontage, vending machines and 24-hour CCTV and access.

Local Contractors

At the initial phases of business such as landscapers and handymen, the back of a van or truck may seem sufficient. However, as the business grows, such entrepreneurs often have to grapple with the challenge of storage for their equipment, tools and supplies.

Utilising self-storage spaces can also work out for such businesses. Facilities with 24-hour secured access enable contractors to work on their own hours and access their units as and when needed.

Online Retailers

Today, e-commerce in Singapore is growing at an unprecedented rate. Entrepreneurs in the e-commerce space need an efficient, reliable and organized storage and inventory management system.

Self-storage facilities with shared services can bring great benefits for these businesses. Business owners can improve their inventory management, delivery, and distribution to better serve their customers.

One of our latest refurnished properties, 38 Ang Mo Kio not only offers standard capabilities of a general B1 industrial building, it also serves consumers with in-house products such as lockers, self-storage, and event hall rental for any occasion. Our subsidiary Work+Store is also available to offer 
storage and work spaces for rent in Ang Mo Kio, suitable for start-ups and small businesses.
