Why cluttered office space is costing your business thousands of dollars

Next time you get the hiccups and need a shock, have a look at the numbers on the cost of renting office space in Sydney.

The average Sydneysider is paying more than $1000 per square metre, per year for a prime office spot*. When you think about it, keeping that extra filing cabinet is costing you $1000 dollars per year. A desk that’s so cluttered you can’t use it is costing you $2000 annually. That cupboard you’ve been wanting to ditch for years, but can’t because it’s full of old equipment, could be costing you $3000 a year to keep.

Is it really worth it?

With Sydney office space at such a premium, you can’t afford to waste an inch.

But how do you make the most of your office space and leave yourself room to grow without losing important documents, spending thousands on storage units or having to move to a bigger space?

That’s easy, with SpacePAL.

So, what exactly can you store?

The opportunities are endless. If you have any old equipment that’s currently not in use but too valuable to give away, put it in a SpaceBOX.

Any extra stock, especially that seasonal stuff that’s gathering dust in the corner, can be packed into a SpaceBOX and safely stored.

And what if you need your stuff back?
