Business is everchanging and growing which brings about the need for additional space. With the cost of retail office space continuing to increase, offsite, low-cost commercial storage just may be the answer by providing more space while providing comprehensive solutions for long-term growth making it an extension of your business.
There are many ways self storage can benefit your business:
Storage Units Features and Benefits
Storage units offer the perfect solution for small businesses, non-profits, and community organizations whether the commercial storage space needs are large or small. Offsite storage is a great value for storing business files, extra product inventory, equipment, vehicles and more. You'll pay a monthly fee based on the size of your storage unit or parking space, at a fraction of the cost of most commercial real estate.
Lower Cost Per Square Foot
If your business is leasing commercial space and some of that space is needed for storage, you will find that storage units are more affordable, allowing you to put your valuable commercial space to better use. Storage Unit rentals are generally month-to-month, so there’s no long-term lease to sign. This gives you the flexibility to only pay for the space you need right now and expand later.
Climate Controlled Storage
Help protect your valuable business documents, records, inventory and furniture in a storage unit that offers climate control for sensitive items.
Drive-Up Storage Units
Most self storage facilities offer drive-up storage units making loading and unloading items much easier with less effort and less time.
Facility Security Measures
When choosing a self storage facility near your location, be sure to check out their security offerings, such as digital surveillance monitoring and key coded entry/access. These are natural deterrents to would-be trespassers. Your storage unit should be secured with your own lock so only you and your team have access.
It’s important to have access to your storage unit when it’s most convenient for you, so check the facility access hours which are typically extended beyond normal business hours giving you and your staff more flexibility.
Many businesses have excess inventory on hand which can take up valuable office space. Storing this off-site gives your business more options and can even prove to be more efficient. For example, if your business services a wide area and you have utility vehicles or sales reps out in the field, it may make sense to have ‘hubs’ throughout your service area for quick and easy access to parts, inventory, etc. Having a couple of strategically located storage units could save time and money for your service or field reps.
These are just some of the many reasons choosing off-site storage units at a secure storage facility can benefit your business. With more affordable leasing than the market average for office and retail space with the added flexibility for renting additional storage as you need it you can expand your business capacity and reduce your office/property rental costs with an affordable storage unit rental today!
