How Self-Storage Can Save Time and Money for Your Business

If you own your own business, you can appreciate the need for storage space. There are many businesses that can benefit from the use of self-storage units, from landscape companies to services with indoor offices. Self-storage, or mini-warehouses, can provide inexpensive solutions to finding places to store items from power tools and machinery, to old documents and office furniture.

Contractors can use a smaller self-storage unit to store equipment and excess materials, such as lumber and Sheetrock for individual jobs, or larger units for overflow and general use. Everything is dry, safe and easy to get to, day or night.

Subcontractors such as roofers, brick masons, plumbers and electricians can have off-site storage with easy access for their supplies and equipment in a self-storage unit without the cost of a trailer or large vehicle to keep supplies in.

Landscapers who need more room for large and cumbersome items such as leaf blowers, mowers, and other tools could store them in a secure self-storage unit instead of their garage or out in an area open to weather and possible theft.

Although there are some restrictions as to what kind of materials can be stored in self-storage safely, painting contractors can store ladders, drop cloths, brushes, and tools in a unit, leaving room in the vehicle for paint and small supplies.

If you’re renting an office, you’re aware of the expense of leasing space when you need room for storing those mounds of boxes waiting to be shredded, or excess office furniture and fixtures if you’re moving, downsizing, or renovating. Also, if your business requires signage, such as realtors and event planners, a self-storage unit can house the overflow without taking up valuable room in your office or home. If you have other supplies for your business that take up lots of room, especially if you work from home, a self-storage unit is a great way to keep your office or home office free of clutter and gives you more usable space for the things you do need.

Renting a self-storage unit is great for the budget – you can rent month-to-month, avoiding costly yearly leases. If you need to either up-size or down-size your storage space, self-storage gives you the flexibility to change unit sizes easily.

Whether you’re storing overflow inventory, or putting extra office supplies off-site, or your contracting business grows and you need a place for more equipment, self-storage is the most efficient way to go. As you will have to insure your contents, most business insurance policies will cover the contents of off-site storage facilities.
