Sales reps

What do you do if your office is on one side of the city and your customer base another? Can you fit all of your samples and stock into your car? Even if you can, is it worth the risk of theft? A self storage unit can be ideal. Not only does it make it easy to keep an inventory, you can come and go as often as you like and if you need more storage, you can look at getting a larger unit.
