How To Leverage Self Storage For Your Growing Commercial Operation

A self storage unit could be the solution you are looking for if your business is growing at a rapid pace and inventory levels are not being kept up. You can choose to rent one or more units, depending on your needs. You can also add or remove units as your inventory levels change. The best thing about self storage units businesses is the fact that they can be rented on a monthly basis. You can access these units 24/7. They are secure and clean for anything you may need. You have exclusive access to the space that you rent. The monthly fee covers unlimited access to your units for the duration of the month. Self storage is an attractive option for commercial businesses because it is affordable. Self storage is a great option for contractors and landscapers who need to store their supplies and equipment. Many self-storage units can be rented near job sites so they are always at hand. Sometimes, they include the unit’s cost with the price of their job.

Many retailers have trouble storing holiday inventory on-site during the eight months that it isn’t allowed to be displayed on the sales floor. The perfect solution to this problem is off-site storage. The perimeter of most public storage facilities is surrounded by tall fencing, making it extremely secure. All activity is recorded by surveillance cameras that are on-hand 24/7. You will need your private access code to gain entry to the facility. You can often find storage buildings with humidity and temperature control available, if you have a need. Most urban areas have staff available during regular business hours, as well as on weekends. They can help you schedule a drop-off or pick-up for your package. Better storage facilities have paved roads around their buildings which make it both simple and easy to find your unit.

While self storage facilities provide separate renter’s coverage, I strongly recommend you have your own insurance to protect your valuable business equipment and inventory. Like parking, self-storage operators are not responsible for damage to your parked vehicle or any equipment stored on the site. The monthly fee can either be paid by cash, check, major credit cards or cash. For the duration of your rental, you can set up an automated transaction plan. If you are a commercial storage customer, you may be able to negotiate a discount for long-term storage units. Many businesses are permanent tenants and can rent for longer than one year. If you are a permanent tenant, the storage facility owner will offer a special rate. This is possible if you prepay for 6 months, or if your monthly payment is automatically drawn from your business or credit card. Self storage can be a cost-saving option for businesses. They provide ample storage space at a very affordable price that can expand with your business.
