Everyone can benefit from having a little extra storage space. That’s especially true for businesses, which have unique storage needs to consider. Ahead, learn more about how you can maximize your storage space – and help make your business run more smoothly.
1. Party Rental Companies
You bring the fun to children’s birthday parties and family gatherings, but there’s a host of physical items that go into making these events magical. To avoid running out of room in your commercial space, a storage unit can be a great solution. There are several different ways you can choose to organize – isolate props, tables, and chairs for a specific type of event (for example, all of your materials for children’s parties); or simply move all of your extra items.
2. New Business Owners
Starting a new business is a thrilling step. From getting the word out on social media to hosting potential investors, you’ve got a lot going on. One of the easiest ways to reduce the stress of getting yourself launched is through considering a storage unit. Do you have files that you don’t need regular access to, or extra office supplies that you don’t need in your current space but would like to still have down the road? Moving these things to a commercial storage unit isn’t an “out of sight, out of mind” mentality; it’s just another way of managing your business.
3. Real Estate Firms
Self storage is the perfect solution for everything related to your real estate business: not just furniture for showings, but signs and files, too. One creative idea is to keep your files off-site in a unit: it’s a great way to keep your files safe for when you need them – and it also opens up floor space in your office.
4. Healthcare Facilities
Chances are, if you work in a healthcare facility, you have a lot of extra paperwork floating around – much of it highly sensitive documents. A storage unit is a great way to ensure that access to these documents stays secure: only people who have the key will be able to get in.
5. Retail Establishments
Holiday window displays? Extra inventory? Unsold or lightly-used clothing for the donation bin? Retail establishments have a lot going on, and because inventory rotates so often, it can be tough to feel like you have a grip on it all. Moving rarely-used or seasonally-used items to a storage unit can help you regain control of the day-to-day flow of business. We suggest making sure to pack smart – heavy boxes on the bottom, light boxes on the top.
6. Design Companies
Like retail establishments, design companies deal with a lot of seasonal changes and extra stock. Storage units can help tame the chaos. Another suggestion is to use your storage unit for items that you may not use immediately, but are setting aside because you know a future client will love them.
Mixers, cupcake wrappers, and baking sheets, oh my! Running a bakery isn’t just about coming up with creative recipes and killer branding. If you find that you have a few more baking materials than you have room for, it might be worth getting a storage unit.
