Running a business demands a lot of effort, time and money. Whenever possible, it’s important to streamline all three of these aspects in a concise and effective way. Conveniently located self storage units provide an easy way to save all three: time, effort and money.
Self storage helps to reduce the amount of time spent driving to faraway warehouses or busy office parks, and the flexible lease agreements mean that businesses don’t pay for space that they no longer need.
There are many advantages to running a business from a self storage unit. To make the most of the opportunity, consider the following three tips.
Get familiar with the operating standards
Each storage facility will have its own unique set of operating standards that are put in place to best protect the facility. While some rules are typically applied to all facilities, such as not storing flammables, others may be more specific.
Just as you would revise a contract for any business partnership, it’s important to review the operating standards of the storage facility as well. Make sure that you know what you can store, what the cancellation policy includes and the hours of access.
Explore all of the facility’s opportunities
Premium self storage facilities provide more than a simple place to keep merchandise or use as a home base. For example, Storage World Self Storage also offers office space for rent, with access to reliable internet and positioned in a convenient location.
Get the right size unit
Business storage units are available in a variety of different sizes. From small lockers to keep extra files, to larger spaces that can be used as an alternative for warehousing. Choose the size that best suits your needs and save costs by preventing wasted space.
At Storage World, our flexible lease agreements mean that you can upsize or downsize your unit as needed!
