How to run a business successfully from a self storage unit 

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. 

We also offer a productive and functional workshop space, secure document storage and even packaging supplies! Using all of the amenities available can streamline workflow and optimise time.

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!

Highly recommended.

A Quick and Easy Process

Quick and easy to reserve and simple sign up process when I arrived. I had under estimated my load size and needed more space which the guys on site quickly arranged for me. Very helpful and friendly staff. A recommended company

Same Day Move In

Fantastic experience. Needed storage quickly and the staff were on hand to help get everything sorted as fast as possible – was in the same day. They even helped to make sure I got the right size unit so I didn’t over pay – they could have sold me a far bigger one but wanted to make sure I got the best deal and was happy – that doesn’t happen very often! Well Done!

Extremely Helpful Staff

Extremely helpful staff, talked me through everything, gave me a tour of the facility, the sign up process was very straight forward, and most important excellent value for money.

Trolleys and Good Lighting

Great storage with lots of trolleys and good lighting. Lots of parking bays so it is easy to park close to the storage unit entrance. A friendly and helpful team (Anthony and Nick) that get back to you quickly by email or phone.

100% Recommended

100% recommend Storage World. The storage lockers are well priced, secure and very clean. The facility is well set up to make loading and unloading very straight forward. Jeni on the desk was so increddibly helpful and went out of her way to make sure we were well set up and happy. Thanks very much to all at Storage World and particularly Jeni!

Business Self Storage

Can’t praise the guys enough, Tricia initially found me a unit over year ago and patiently kept me up to date on availability as I was unable to move my business as quickly as I’d hoped. All the staff are friendly and helpful. A safe and clean place to work.
