Office Storage Space – The Final Frontier

Office space can be cramped and overpriced at the best of times. Expanding your office or moving to a bigger office can cost more than many businesses can afford. Because of this, small businesses can be swamped by growing piles of paper work, inventory and supplies. If this sounds familiar and your business could use more space, you should consider renting a storage unit.

Rented storage units are the perfect way to increase the storage space available to your business without renting a larger office.

Storage units feature great advantages such as security, accessibility and the option of climate control. All of our units are positioned in easily accessible locations. Because of these advantages, all sorts of businesses are finding to be the perfect solution to their storage problems. Here are some examples of different businesses take advantage of the extra space:

Is this your file cabinet?

Restaurants and Bars:
Restaurants and bars use our storage units to store extra tables, chairs, cleaning supplies and crates of sauces in every imaginable color.
Contractors find storage units useful in storing supplies and equipment, as well as documents, invoices and records.
These businesses use our storage units to store their clients furniture and possessions. The secure environment of our units ensures that these items are kept safe from theft and damage, an important consideration when dealing with items that do not belong to you.
Apartment Managers:
Apartment managers use storage units to store extra furniture. They also often need a place to store tools and equipment, gardening tools for example.
These types of businesses often accumulate a large amount of documentation. Financial and legal documents often need to be kept for long periods of time. Client information needs to be stored securely for legal reasons and may need to be kept for future reference.
Pharmaceutical companies take advantage of our climate controlled storage units. These are air conditioned and kept at a constant temperature; ideal for storing sensitive products.
Internet trading is becoming big business these days. Internet traders working from home find that the large inventory they accumulate can soon overwhelm their homes, making it even harder to escape the stresses of work at the end of the day. A large inventory requires a large storage area and renting extra storage space is a must for any serious internet trader.

The need for additional storage is universal and we have found that almost every business, no matter what their area of expertise, has need of additional storage of some kind. For example, all businesses have administration needs. This can lead to a large amount of documentation and record keeping. Even in the digital age, paper is king and whilst many paper forms might seem pointless and unnecessary they continue to be a requirement. These documents need to be stored somewhere. If the space in your office is precious then why not consider renting a storage unit for this purpose?
Are you convinced yet? Well if you are and you are considering the use of a storage unit, here are a few tips on choosing the right one.
Firstly, you should think about the accessibility of the storage unit and of the lot in which it is located. All of our lots are in convenient locations so that they can be easily accessed by many people.
Secondly, security. Make sure you are comfortable with the security arrangements before you store your items there.
What will you be storing? Do you require the use of a climate controlled storage unit? These are perfect for storing delicate or precious items as they help to keep them in good condition.
Of course price is important too. Check for any hidden fees or surcharges to make sure you are not paying more than you need to. If you are using the storage unit for business purposes, check for special business offers. This can save you a significant amount of money in the long run.
