How Self-Storage Can Help Small Businesses

Published on 5/10/2022

Not sure what this title is referring to? How could self-storage help your small business? Isn’t it mostly for personal use when moving or storing your Great Aunt’s antiques? Think again!
Your business could actually financially benefit from a storage unit. Here’s how.

1.       Flexibility. Our storage units are rented on a month-to-month basis. As a small business owner, you don't know what each month or season will bring, and by not being locked into a long rental agreement, you have the flexibility to rent storage space for just as long as you need it.

2.       Makes downsizing or expanding easy. The cost of renting a storage unit is less than what you’d pay for a large premise. So maybe you can downsize your business office, save on that rent, and use a storage unit for your supplies and items that don’t need to be at your office. Or maybe you could keep your current space, rent a self-storage unit and store all the files and cabinets you don’t need to access daily. Then use your extra space for expansion of work area. The options are endless.  Self-storage is obviously much cheaper than commercial building rent, so start dreaming of what you could do to either downsize and save on rent, or expand by optimizing your current space!

3.       Handy warehouse space. Maybe your business involves stocking products and supplies during sales. Or maybe you could get special bulk purchase prices of goods, if you’d just have a secure, clean place to store it. The monthly rent could easily be swallowed by your savings. Best of all, you can access your storage space any time, and keep it organized to optimize your work flow.

4.       Security and Safety. Workplace theft is a huge crime, and small businesses are extremely vulnerable to it. Getting a storage unity can help you avoid that. At Locker Storage, we have high security monitoring with 24/7 camera surveillance, gate entry and exit linked to your specific entry code. The entire length of our building is brightly lit. A secure fence surrounds the unit.

5.       Temporary storage during business transitions. Today’s world is always changing, and a successful business changes to meet the needs of the ones it is serving. When transitioning, self-storage can be a life-saver to store office supplies, goods, and equipment on a temporary basis.

6.       Outdoor storage available. In addition to our indoor storage units, we also offer outside parking. This could be hugely beneficial for secure equipment storage.

Locally owned and operated, Locker Storage is dedicated to providing you with a hassle-free self-storage experience. Rent from us and you can quit worrying about the safety of your belongings, optimize your workflow, and best of all boost the productivity of your small business! What more could you ask for?
