10 ways having a CB Self Storage Mailbox in Cambridge can help small businesses.
Running a small business in Cambridgeshire is not the easiest thing in the world. Mainly because of the huge rents commanded on business premises. For a small business to hold its head above the water sometimes you need a little smoke and mirrors, for example why not use our mailbox service instead of renting an office in Cambridge?
So, how do Mailboxes work?

We provide you with a physical professional business address in Cambridgeshire as a good alternative to your home address, from which you can register your business and receive mail.

Let me give you TEN reasons why using CB Self Storage Mailbox Service will help you:
Reason #1: More Time
We find being limited to the core business hours of 9:00-17:00 just does not work when you are trying to juggle all of life’s other commitments. CB Self Storage Mailboxes will be accessible to you 24/7, 365 days a year and our location is conveniently accessible along the A14, Bar Hill in Cambridgeshire. You can come and collect your post and packages whenever you like. We accept courier and signed-for deliveries. We also have a ‘Goods Out’ area so if, for example, you sell items online we have a designated space for you to wrap and pack your parcels and leave them for the courier to collect during the day.
Reason #2: Professional Appearance
Studies show that over half of all small business start-ups begin at home. One of the best ways to build credibility from the outset is to have a professional address that reflects your professional company.
Office rental rates in the Cambridge and Huntingdon area are massive and you would not expect any business to rush into renting an office just so they look like an established company, but there is nothing wrong with a little smoke and mirrors. CB Self Storage Mailbox service helps small businesses and sole traders to keep their running costs down by providing them with the option to present a credible business address in Cambridgeshire, without having the overhead costs of a physical office.
CB Self Storage mailbox gives you a Cambridge,UK address to be proud of.
Reason #3: Protect your Home Privacy
Your home address is private! With our Mailbox service, your customers, employees, salespeople, subcontractors will only know your address at CB Self Storage, giving you peace of mind that the privacy of your home address is protected.
Reason #4: Google validation
To be validated on the map section of Google you need to apply for a postal verification code.By default if you work from home this will be your postcode and Google maps will drop a very big pin on your home with your business details. From speaking with many of our small business friends we know this is not a good idea, with most preferring to have that distinction between place of work and place of home. If you use our CB Self Storage Mailbox Service you can have that Google pin dropped at our Cambridge business location, at Trafalgar Business Park, Bar Hill, Cambridge, not at your home.
Reason #5: Customer returns
Internet shopping is huge, both for businesses placing big commercial orders and for your day to day shoppers. CB Self Storage Mailboxes are ideal for Ecommerce businesses, such as eBay sellers, who may occasionally receive returned items. These returned packages my arrive at any time but having a CB Self Storage Mailboxes provides a convenient way to handle these returned items. As soon as any packages arrive on site they will be transported to your secure and safe business locker, ready for you to collect at your leisure.
CB Self Storage Mailboxes will also keep your home address anonymous to online customers.
Reason #6: Mail Security
Identity theft is a huge problem in the UK at the moment, it can take weeks/months to sort out and has the potential, unless caught early, to have a devastating effect on your short term credit rating, and even temporarily affect your ability to borrow funds to grow your business.
