Ways To Use a Self Storage for Your Business

Vehicles

You might not have the storage space on site for such vehicles and it will be easier to keep them in storage. Keeping inside storage protects from weather and possible vandalism too.

Equipment

Have extra equipment that needs a place to store it when it’s not in use? Maybe you run a landscaping business and don’t want to keep the trailer with your mowers in front of your house. Or do you have medical equipment that has sensitive electronics and needs to be kept in a climate-controlled environment?

Inventory

Anything from shoes to pharmaceuticals can be stored in a storage unit. If you don’t have enough space to store all your inventory on-site storage can be a great solution. Using office space as storage for your company can get expensive. By using a storage unit, you can keep costs down while having easy access to your inventory.

Parts

Think about how clean you can keep your shop if you put all the extra parts to equipment or products in a storage unit. You can remove a lot of the clutter taking up space and increase productivity. Move all the things in your way into a storage unit and speed up your workflow.

Materials

Having extra raw materials for your products can take up a lot of space. Buying in bulk can help keep product costs down but that means you can have extra taken up space. Put your extra materials into storage to take up less space at your shop or office.

Office Records

Some businesses need to hold on to years and years worth of records in case they are needed again in the future. By storing them off-site you are able to keep them in a private location with fewer people having access to them. This makes them less likely to be tampered with at less of a security risk. If you have your files on your computers but need to keep the hard copies somewhere a storage unit can come in very handy.
