Businesses Now Use Self-Storage To Increase Their Space Affordably

Today's business owners are savvy when it comes to saving money. Due to the present economy, many business owners do not have the means to expand to a larger space, and they may be obligated to house items that their present space cannot accommodate. Utilizing a self-storage locker is a viable and affordable solution for maximizing a business's space. Here are a few of the many ways that obtaining a unit can benefit owners of different small businesses.

Extra Retail Stock

Self-storage is an attractive solution for retailers lacking adequate room in the back of the shop for massive shipments that are not yet ready for the sales floor. This tends to happen a lot prior to the start of the holiday season. There are still summer clearance items on the floor, fall inventory has just been put out, and there is simply no room to stockpile the fifty boxes of Christmas sweaters that just arrived.

Another advantage of placing excess stock in a unit is the twenty-four hour security that most self-storage centers provide. This eliminates any chance of theft, as opposed to keeping excess inventory in the business owner's home, where it is not always guaranteed to be safe. Business Documents

It can be difficult to find enough space in an office to store the voluminous amounts of paperwork required as a part of some professions. In recent years, paperless offices have gained popularity. However, attorneys, physicians, and accountants are just some of the professionals that are required by law to keep hard copies of documents for up to seven years.

These specialists do not necessarily have the extra room to house these files, so many utilize a self-storage unit as an annex to their traditional office. Not only does the unit free up office space, but it is a secure place to store sensitive client information that may be personal in nature.

Short-Term Solutions

Businesses can also use self-storage as a short-term solution. Sometimes, furniture and fixtures need a place to go prior to a remodel, or maybe the owner just recently redecorated and is temporarily packing away old belongings. Sometimes, when a business decides to downsize and relocate, it is cost effective to pack away unneeded possessions that can be later sold rather than disposing of them.

Some businesses in areas with harsh winters also use their units to temporarily pack away seasonal items. For example, some retailers might have outdoor kiosks that they only use during warmer months, while a restaurant may pack away outdoor seating or a grill until after Memorial Day.

Climate Control

Some business owners fear that leaving important documents, priceless fixtures, or valuable stock in a unit involves taking a huge risk. Papers can warp, yellow, and tear. Inventory may grow moldy or face an infestation by vermin. However, getting a self-storage unit with built-in climate control is a practical solution that eliminates the possibility of most of these uncertainties.

Though they cost a bit more than a regular locker, climate-controlled units provide an excellent return on investment when it comes to loss protection. Using air conditioning and heat, these units maintain a steady temperature between fifty-five and eighty degrees. This is crucial if you are packing away pharmaceuticals, computer parts, antiques, or anything that can be damaged by extreme temperature shifts.
