Over the last few years, Manchester has become a desirable city for everybody, ranging from businesses and students to musicians and thespians; Manchester is the place to be. With more people becoming drawn to living in the city, comes more people seeking an apartment in the city centre.
Manchester’s population has continued to grow year on year, but finding a place to live has become a challenge for Manchester residents. Studies have emerged that certain properties have been let in just one hour and on average, each apartment receives three or four offers.
The city has a strong economy and a growing population, which has made Manchester a place of opportunity and possibility for all types of businesses.
Due to the high demand of businesses looking to rent space and with there being over 2,000 prospective tenants wanting to rent 130 properties listed, rental prices have increased. The M.E.N stated in 2015, that rental prices across Greater Manchester had increased by over 20 per cent in 12 months.
An option for many business owners is self-storage, especially around Christmas when business is booming and products are in high demand. Whether you turn to self storage to store extra stock or run your business from a unit; you are in a win-win situation.
Storage units are dramatically cheaper than renting in the city centre, and allow you the flexibility to rent more or reduce the amount of units you need. All you need to do, is give a week’s notice. To learn more about why businesses are turning to self storage, click the link.
