4 Reasons Businesses Use Self Storage

Self storage is an affordable, readily available option for clearing out valuable company office or warehouse space. When you have piles of clutter around the office or your warehouse isn’t big enough to hold your inventory, most likely your first thought is to start pricing new offices or warehouse facilities. While it may be time for a move, self storage may also give you the space you need at a fraction of the price. There are four reasons businesses use self storage such as to free up office space, store office supplies or merchandise, archive sensitive documents, and get short-term storage.

Free up office space

No one wants to work in a cluttered office space. Sitting at a desk surrounded by piles of folders and spare equipment isn’t conducive to a productive, efficient workplace. With commercial real estate property at a premium, moving into a large office space once you have reached capacity may not be in the budget. Using a self storage unit frees up the space that you need in your main office while saving money.

Store office supplies or merchandise

Many companies choose to purchase supplies in bulk to save money. From copier paper to desk chairs, there are numerous office items available in bulk. However, when you buy in bulk, you may not always have room to store the entire shipment in-house when it first arrives. A self storage unit is the perfect place to house this merchandise. With video surveillance and on-site management, you don’t have to worry about anyone stealing company property.

Archive sensitive documents

There are documents that a given company needs to keep in its possession but doesn’t need access to on a daily basis. These documents include old tax records and customer transactions. If you are worried about security within the self storage unit, keep the documents in locked filing cabinets.

Get short-term storage

When you are planning for a company move or have other needs for temporary business storage, it doesn’t make sense to rent another office facility. A self storage unit gives you access to your belongings while you are in transition and keeps them safe.
