Kansas City, MO, September 14, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- The green movement is sweeping the nation and portable storage is poised to play a key role in helping environmentally-friendly companies, like Santa Barbara Electric Bike Company, grow their businesses.
Santa Barbara Electric Bicycle Company's bikes are hitting the streets as a new mode of fun and reliable transportation. Stylish and quiet, electric bikes are also proving to be the efficient and sustainable answer to skyrocketing gas prices and increasing traffic congestion. The bikes work by augmenting rider power with a rechargeable, lightweight battery.
"Our goal is to reduce emissions and make Santa Barbara the greenest city in the nation. We want to get everybody riding a bike to work and portable storage containers are helping us make that goal a reality," said Scott Shaw, owner of Santa Barbara Electric Bike Company. "For a small business with high growth potential, portable storage containers are definitely a necessity. It's a cost-effective way for us to grow our business and to expand according to the demands. We need a secure location to store our products. Portable storage helps."
Many small businesses are turning to portable storage for containerized solutions that will keep a company on the growth track, according to John Finnessy, CMP, Executive Director the National Portable Storage Association, or NPSA, a nonprofit membership association dedicated to the advancement of the portable storage industry.
"There may be a credit crunch in the real estate market, but banks are still willing to lend to money to growing small businesses," he explains. "Thanks to portable storage, it's not necessary to build large warehouses you may not fill for years. Portable storage containers can fill the void so you can invest in marketing, equipment or some other revenue generating asset."
