With over fourteen million general users and over one hundred and seventy thousand business users, eBay continues to be a popular and convenient e-commerce platform which has quickly become part of our cultural fabric. If you’ve been on eBay for a while though, you might start to notice a challenge arising-storage. Whether you’re a savvy salesperson or a casual hobbyist, to be a regular eBayer, you need a place to store your purchases or sales stock. At first, your home might seem the most appropriate place to keep your prized possessions, after all, there you can keep your favourite purchases on display, and your most expensive stock safely out of sight, yet as your eBay experiences mount, you might find that the house is simply not large enough to hold all your things without allowing them to become little more than paraphernalia, gathering dust and taking up space needed for more important things as time moves on and the needs of you and your family change.
A Favour for a Friend?
If your home is no longer an adequate storage space, where else do you put your eBay goods when you no longer wish to display them? The loft? The garage? A friend’s house? All of these may seem like plausible alternatives, but especially if you’re an eBay seller, leaving your goods in a less than sterile environment while you wait for the highest bidder might be a decision that you’ll come to regret. As eBayers become ever more vigilant against scam artists and those who lie about the condition of their items, the last thing that you need is to be caught off guard if rain seeps into your garage, or if someone notices the volume of goods regularly transferred there and decides to break in and help themselves. Even in the safety of your loft, it’s incredibly easy to break something up there without even knowing that it’s happened, and accidentally sending out damaged goods to customers could end in heartbroken buyers, disastrous feedback, and if it happens frequently, even blacklisting.
Yet you might be pleased to know that all this can be easily avoided by enlisting the help of a self-storage company, which are available all across the country, from Cheshire to storage West Midlands. Using a self-storage company is like having your own highly secure spare room away from your house. Customers are given their own key with which they can have twenty-four-hour access to their possessions, while safe in the knowledge that when they go home, their things are being looked after by professionals. As an eBayer, this means that you never have to worry about bad product feedback or disagreements over hoarding ever again, and as the red auction timer ticks down to the last few seconds, the only thing that you need to worry about is either packaging the goods or paying for your newest purchases.
