If you own a small business, you know it’s all about keeping the cost of running your business, as low as possible. One way that may help you in this area that you may not have considered, is storage. If you have inventory, you know the high cost of renting a suitable place. You have to sign a lease, pay utilities, provide some kind of security to protect your inventory, and in some cases, pay the cost of keeping up the property, such as cutting the grass, removal of leaves and tree trimming.
Consider storing your inventory at a self storage facility. No long term contracts, video monitoring, and fenced and gated properties for security, no utilities, and many different size storage units to suit your needs.
If your inventory requires storage in a temperature controlled storage unit, most self storage facilities offer them. If you are in need of 24 hour access to your unit, that may be granted with a small fee.
Some small businesses will need to have their inventory delivered to their storage. You know how inconvenient it can be to make sure you don’t miss the delivery. StorPlace Self Storage offers all of these conveniences, including deliveries to your storage unit in a secure setting. All deliveries are recorded with each entry into the gate. The deliverer has to come into the office to pick up the key and return the key when the delivery is complete. Now that’s convenient.
Restaurants can benefit from storage as well. With everyone on the go these days, fast food and calling in pick- up orders, are becoming more popular. Restaurants have very limited space for the to-go boxes and cups that need to be stored there, and running out of these supplies is not an option. To have a storage unit full of these supplies makes it more convenient than waiting on deliveries. The restaurant can watch the inventory kept in the store, and when it gets low, head to the storage to pick up the supplies there. Then when the storage unit supplies run low, order the supplies without the risk of running out in the restaurant. Pizza delivery restaurants usually have very limited space, and pizza boxes can take up a lot of that space. Running out of pizza boxes for a pizza delivery restaurant is bad for business.
Landscaping companies use self storage to keep the large mowers and landscaping equipment in, instead of putting it on their personal property. If you drive a vehicle in your business, such as tow trucks, box trucks for deliveries, or just have a company vehicle you don’t want parked on your personal property, consider storing in a safe and secure storage facility. Some folks even store their vehicles in a storage unit to protect it from the elements.
If you live in an apartment complex and own a motorcycle or a boat, you may not have a parking space to park it. Some apartments offer extra at spaces for a price. At a storage facility, you get the security for your vehicle you feel comfortable with.
So if you are a business owner, a restaurant in need of dry supply storage, a boat or motorcycle owner with limited parking at your home, or just someone who has way too much stuff and nowhere to put it, consider storage. It’s convenient, secure and cost effective.
