CEO at Supercheap Self Storage Melbourne South East
Abbi and Ritu are profoundly qualified experts in their own area of expertise, with various degrees amongst themselves and even a qualified Chartered Financial Analyst's certificate! Rather than going into their course of study, they've chosen to set out on an adventure as business persons in the self storage industry and they are currently leading our South East Melbourne Supercheap Storage outlet with a lot of plans to build more warehouses all over the nation! What's more, with Supercheap Storage, you simply need to go onto the web and use our online storage calculator to get a decent gauge of the amount you truly need to store for a quality storage unit with us or address your queries to our storage advisors for a custom fitted arrangement that suits all of your storage requirement for putting away your most valuable possessions! We are at your service whenever you need reputable storage services!
In business, changes are sometimes inevitable or even necessary in order to remain cost-efficient. Having a distribution facility at a location where not much activities are being carried out only means a waste of ready resources. Thus, it is best for them to make the move before wasting even more costs down the road.
Hopefully in the near future, more facilities would follow suit in incorporating green measures to their work setting. Every little effort counts in contributing towards environmentally-friendly measures. Everyone needs to do their part and large establishments with major carbon footprint have a greater impact on the whole situation.
I label myself as a food enthusiast because of my extreme love of food ranging from various cuisines originating from all around the world. It would be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity should I ever be given the honour to savour menus from various top restaurant units.
Knowing that your job is hazardous, why would you want to risk your life by drinking on the job! We carry a lot of heavy things around my storage facility and I would be more than mad if any of my employees wanted to endanger their lives like that around here!
I reckon that a restaurant would have to be an expertly run facility in order to receive consecutive years' awards on this plate scale. It's important to make sure too, that once you've received such an award, that you do your jolly well best in other to maintain it for the next year running!
This is something worth considering in my line of business since I have had plans of looking at my facility expand over the next few years. In theory it seems very simple to just buy another shop unit somewhere and just duplicate your operations there, but in actual fact, there's a lot more that goes on behind t he storage room doors than just directions and purchasing!
Supply chain is a massive topic on its own which requires the incorporation of various other aspects to make a complete cycle. From the start of the processes at the warehouse facility, all the way to the end which is through to the consumers. Data could help manage all of these required processes to ensure a smooth flow throughout.
Consumers are getting more demanding nowadays knowing that competition is ever-increasing in today's e-commerce sector. As for shoppers, they are becoming increasingly tech-savvy which means running daily errands online. Those service providers that lack of facilities to meet demand over the stipulated timeline would just stand to miss out.
If you're able to harness the power of your community for idea generation, I don't think that your company would have a problem coming up with new business ideas at all! I reckon I might start doing that with my self storage customers to see whether there is anywhere that my company can improve too!
Africa is doing a good job in recognizing where they can and should be growing. What's exciting is seeing the potential come out of there with the resources and demand from the population that is starting to lift themselves out of poverty. It won't be long before you start to see greater movement in the storage warehousing and logistics solutions there!
SA needs to know the landmarks and places where it shines and focus on a tourism solution that will showcase all of these different areas in the best light. And of course, there will be people who would jump at the opportunity to visit all that SA has in storage if they only could afford to, with or without any advertising from the tourism ministry!
As we evolve within the digital age, mankind is getting lazier by the day. A smartphone has been helping make our daily activities like communication, work, and studies much easier and now we are looking at a smart home. I wonder what does a smart housing unit truly offer in terms of benefits and advantages and do we really need one? I guess it is not just a matter of want, but our needs should be considered as well.
In the supply chain network, it's important to have enough points of storage across the distribution channels so that you are able to speed up the time that it takes for your product to get to your delivery point. If you've got enough items in storage at the closest warehouse to your customer, the faster you can deliver your product and the happier your customers are really going to be! That's the best solution you can hope for isn't it?
Considering that I've been thinking about expanding my self storage business, perhaps this could be a very interesting consideration. I don't think I would be very enthusiastic about moving overseas with my fledgling company just yet, but who knows! Maybe they have a huge demand for self storage in Dubai...
I'm sure that commuting might seem like an absolute waste of time, but I find that riding with my self storage units to my customers' houses gives me an opportunity to think about how I can ask my customers for feedback. I have some of my greatest ideas when I'm sitting at the back of the truck and talking to my employees too!
I think every business owner has struggled with pricing issues - even I have, when it comes to putting a price to my services of renting out self storage units. At the end of the day, the whole process is a learning experience and you learn to adjust your dollars and cents to reflect how much you think the value of your product is changing.
Every nation deserves a chance at achieving success regardless of where is their bottomline that they wish to start from. With the aide of technology, advances can be achieved much more easily with various units coming forward with their own specialty.
Such a big and upcoming facility is a real achievement for the company! It's hard enough for me to manage my self storage facility in Melbourne South as it is, so for me to envision expansion and adding to the number of locations that my business can reach to here is something that I'll only consider in the far future!
Running my own self storage company in Melbourne South, I can tell you that there are A LOT of people who automatically assume that the company is in charge of insurance of their items in storage. But that's why we make it absolutely clear that we will not be liable for the items inside the storage unit and people have to get their own content insurance.
