Most people are familiar with renting self storage as a home organization solution for storing personal items. However, a secure storage unit can save you time, money and have the added stress that comes with finding another business location and moving all of the company’s belongings to the new office.
Self storage units are available in a variety of sizes and types to fit your business’ particular requirements. Short term and long term storage allow local companies to adjust the length of their storage rental as their business needs change. Businesses can use self storage to store inventory, equipment, company documents, company vehicles and home business items.
1. Create an Extra Warehouse For Inventory
Since self storage units come in a variety of sizes, some as large as 10’ X 30’, it’s very easy to turn a storage rental into an inventory warehouse. If your business sells delicate clothing, musical instruments, electronics, photography equipment, or other items that are sensitive to extreme changes in temperature, a climate controlled self storage will protect your inventory from humidity and heat. Whether you need more room for a small supply of products or the largest unit available for your entire stock, local self storage is the affordable warehouse.
2. Store Additional Equipment
Depending on your industry, business equipment and technology can change rapidly. Having a go-to place to store excess computers, office furniture, manufacturing tools, business supplies and more will help to keep your office or retail store organized for customers and employees.
3. Keep Company Files Secure
It’s inevitable that as a business owner or manager you will accumulate many company documents, employee files and customer paperwork over the years. While having an electronic copy of paperwork is great for ease of access and convenience, it is always smart to have a physical copy of documents in case of technology issues. Files at your office can easily be misplaced when they are among other paperwork. Having multiple file cabinets can take up a large amount of space in your office. Companies may want to keep confidential tax documents at a separate location for security reasons. A secure file storage space is the answer to decluttering your business.
4. Company Vehicles Are Safe Around the Clock
While storing company vehicles in your business’ parking lot seems like a logical place to keep them, those valuable parking spaces could be used for customer parking. By storing your business automobiles at a self storage facility, they are protected 24 hours a day by an electronic gate with access code and recorded video surveillance.
5. Home Business Storage
When you’re a home business owner, it can be challenging to find additional space for your inventory and supplies in your house. Whether you provide professional services or have an online eCommerce store, self storage offers a convenient and affordable solution. Air conditioned storage is excellent for storing craft supplies, fabrics, shiping supplies and other items.
