If you’re running a business, you’re going to need storage, that’s usually a given. But sometimes buying and maintaining your own storage spaces can be a hassle and pose an unwanted financial strain on your business.
A simple fix is to just rent your own storage unit so you won’t have to sacrifice valuable products, materials, or equipment needed for your business. Here are five ways that businesses can save by renting a storage unit.
1 – Expand Your Business, Not Your Clutter
Buying a bigger office or store should happen because your business is profiting and you need more staff and more floor space – not because you don’t have any more room for the products you’re accumulating.
Renting a storage unit for your business’s products and equipment helps save you valuable space for your business to grow and flourish while still being easily accessible.
2 – Save Time With Easier Access To Inventory
If you have seasonal merchandise that you rotate in and out of storage you know exactly how much work that takes. Having a storage unit where you can move seasonal products in and out depending on what you need will help speed up your changeover process as the seasons change.
Not only will you save time, but you’ll save on cash since you won’t have to dispose of out-of-season merchandise that you’ll only have to replace in a few months because you don’t have anywhere to place it.
3 – Save On Stress By Knowing You’re Secure
Business owners constantly have to be vigilant and keep a close eye on the security of their stored products. If you have too many products to safely store in your store or you’re not comfortable with them being there, renting a storage unit is a secure alternative.
Storage companies like Multi Storage keep your stored products safe with gated entrances and security fencing, 24/7 video surveillance, individual unit monitoring and alarms, and individual keypad codes.
4 – Save On Staffing Costs with Delivery
A huge benefit to renting a storage space is that you don’t have to worry about having an employee clocked in and onsite to receive shipped deliveries. At many storage unit buildings like Multi Storage, they’ll let you send deliveries right to your unit and they’ll receive it and bring it to your unit for you at no extra fee during office hours.
5 – Expand Your Business Offering Area
Moving documents, products, and equipment off-site into a storage unit means that you can use that storage unit as a sort of satellite space that you can use to expand your business’s geographic range of service. This is especially handy for any kind of company like a landscape or cleaning company that needs to have their equipment handy and nearby to get to job sites quickly.
Renting a storage unit is a great way to save on stress, time, and money when running your business. It’s just the smarter and more cost-effective alternative to buying a warehouse of your own without skimping on security or business performance.
