Every business, from start-ups to construction companies to large corporations, has different storage needs. Renting a self storage unit is a cost-effective way for businesses to store excess inventory, furniture, documents and equipment. In fact, companies who are remodeling their office space or moving to a new location store items in a self storage unit during the renovations. Also, realtors use self storage units to store their client’s excess furniture, accessories and personal belongings during a home staging project. Another type of business who can utilize self storage space are Sales representatives who are on the road. They can store their samples and documents in a self storage unit to help alleviate clutter in their car or home office.
If you are a small business looking for business storage space, renting a self storage unit can be a great overall value. Business self storage units are great for contractors or business people who work out of their home or van and do not have an office. For these types of companies, renting a storage space would be more cost effective than renting office or workshop space.

Make sure that documents and files are stored in different boxes than office equipment. It is important to keep a detailed inventory of the items that you are storing, including listing the contents on every box. Do not pack boxes more than 30 pounds. Store documents or equipment that you might need to access more often at the front of the storage unit. If needed, add shelving units in your storage unit to better organize your inventory or files.
