Founded in 2003, BabyCo has transformed from a great idea into a thriving Wembley business. As an importer and wholesaler of baby products, his company offers prams, accessories, high chairs, and walkers – anything a bare nursery might need.
Running out of space and options, Mr Advani approached Access Self Storage in the hope of finding somewhere to hold his expanding stock of nursery accessories.
“I was surprised to find that the facility is well-equipped for receiving containers”, he said. “You can even dispatch inventory from one carton to multiple pallets.”
Since then, BabyCo has outgrown its storage requirement, doubling the number of units it rents from Access. The company has even moved into an office space.
“Working out of a storage unit is a little unconventional, but I’m surprised more people aren’t doing it”, Mr Advani said.
“It’s roomy, it’s cost-effective, and it’s highly customisable – you can really make the space your own.
“As we have continued to grow, Access has always helped us achieve our operational goals – the flexible approach really works for us. We’re not bogged down in long-term contracts and can take on additional units as and when we need them. And without having to scramble for space when, for example, a big shipment arrives from China, we have more time to focus on our core business activities.”
