Smart Approach to Business Storage

Jan 30 2016

As a business owner I can see the value in storing records in a location that charges me lower rent than the same space would in my office building. If you are a business-owner, struggling with space for your files and paperwork, you should consider a self storage unit to help with an overflow of records.


Why it makes sense:

  • Renting a self storage unit is a cost effective way of storing documents and files.
  • Your files are on hand whenever they are needed.
  • Paperwork will not be clogging up valuable space in your office.
  • On comparison, price per metre squared of self storage is infinitely cheaper than cost per metre squared of office space.


It is difficult to justify the use of onsite office storage for all but current files. Be savvy and reduce your office footprint!

Implementing an off-site storage policy will free up or reduce your need for high cost office space, saving your business money or creating room for equipment in the office or even desk space for a new employee.

Your office space is better used to generate income than for storage!

For field reps or merchandisers, a self storage unit is a great idea for storage of your samples and merchandise. It provides protection for your products and prevents clutter of your home or office.


Advantages of a self storage unit for your business:

  • You pay only for what you need. You can upsize or down size your units as you desire as there are no longterm lease commitments.
  • Units can also be used for excess stock, furniture, stationary etc.
  • Downsizing and upscaling are easy with self storage.
  • Offsite storage protects your valuable documents in case of fire.
  • The uses of self storage for your business:
  • Point of sales equipment.
  • Small business stock overflow.
  • Seasonal stock, eg Christmas stock storage.
  • Home office storage.
  • Trade business storage: plumbers, painters, carpenters.
