When most people think of utilizing self-storage, they equate the industry to simply being a place to put things that aren’t needed during a move. Driving through a Texas city, you will easily see several storage companies that people put to use on a daily basis.
While self-storage is a great first place to look when you are needing space for a home move, renovation or seeing a child off to college, there are other uses for these units that provide a deeper benefit to those that use them.
It may come as a surprise, but there are several benefits that small business owners can gain from utilizing a self-storage unit. Here are our top three choices for how self-storage can help a local small business get ahead.
If you work in an office, then you have most likely seen the space that old documents and file cabinets can easily take up in the workplace. Working around such clutter can be unbearable to most and it can really throw off the productivity. This problem is bad in a larger business, but for a small business, this type of clutter can be devastating.
By renting a self-storage unit, you can find a space to put old files and documents where they will be out of the way of current employees. This way, not only do you have plenty of working space at your small business for your employees to be productive, but you also have a unit that you can set up to be your own personal library of official work documents. The organization possibilities of this are pretty much endless.
Seasonal Storage for Small Businesses
During the holidays, decorations for different celebrations tend to pop up in all aspects of business. Larger businesses are usually able to store these types of decorations in designated warehouses or backrooms. However, if you are a small business, your backroom is already most likely filled up enough with your daily needs.
If you plan on going all-out for the holidays and attracting the type of customer who would enjoy lavish decorations then investing in a self-storage unit may be the perfect opportunity for you to both please your customers. This also prevents you from using your precious private space for holiday storage.
Electronic and Parts Storage
Many small businesses are a part of the electronics service industry that cater to mobile phone repairs or computer repairs. Not only can these businesses be run from a self-storage unit, but the unit can also serve as a place to store your valuable tools and equipment in a climate controlled environment.
