- Branch out to off-season services like holiday lights and ice management.
The more services you offer, the more equipment and supplies you need. If lack of space has been holding your landscaping company back, a storage unit can certainly solve that problem. Put away your summer mowers, tools, and lawn equipment for winter and fill your office with ladders, light hanging supplies, and snow removal tools for winter. Once the weather starts to thaw, switch out your supplies without having to buy or lease anything new. This keeps your cash flow more consistent throughout the year.
- Take advantage of end of season bulk sales.
A lot of landscaping supply companies have seasonal sales because they’re running low on space. If you have frequently come across large pallets of goods that your company would certainly use but that you couldn’t store, stop letting those bulk and clearance savings go to someone else. When you have lots of room to expand your inventory and your equipment, you can focus on the per unit cost for more profits.
- Set your one-man landscaping operation aside for winter.
Landscaping companies don’t have to have lots of employees to be successful. If you’re the sole proprietor of a landscaping company and you work alone, you don’t necessarily have to keep the cash flow coming all year long to hold onto employees and clients. Use a storage unit to hold all of your supplies for a spring, summer, and fall business. Then work on other pursuits and jobs during the winter.
Space is one of the biggest constraints small companies face, but expanding can also seem like a risk. Get all of the advantages with lowered risks by getting a perfectly-sized storage unit. Then you can test expansion, increased services, and more without feeling cramped in your main office. Explore our unit sizes or contact us today at Right Move Self-Storage to get started.
