Small businesses often need more space and resources. Small businesses can benefit from utilising self-storage units, whether it’s due to a lack of physical space in the workplace, the high cost of commercial real estate, or the need to store excess inventory or equipment. Self-storage is a versatile tool that small businesses can use to manage inventory, streamline operations, and save money. In this blog post, we will discuss why storage units are the perfect tool for small businesses.

A Cost-Effective Storage Solution:

Renting a commercial space can be expensive, especially for small businesses that are just starting out. A self-storage solution offers a cost-effective alternative to leasing or buying commercial space. Renting a self-storage unit is often more affordable than renting or buying additional commercial space, making it an attractive option for small businesses that need extra storage space.

At Safeguard Storage, we go a step further. Upon securing a unit with us, we’ll only charge you $1 for the first month (conditions apply). Our units are 100% secure; you’ll be the only one with access inside to ensure that everything is where you left it and accessible enough for you to retrieve anything at any time.

Self-Storage Provides Flexibility For Your Business:

Self-storage facilities offer a range of storage unit sizes, allowing small businesses to choose a unit that best fits their specific storage needs. You can rent a small storage unit for documents and small equipment or a larger unit for inventory, furniture, and larger equipment. This flexibility means you can adjust the amount of space you rent based on your current needs.

More often than not, businesses will approach us at Safeguard Storage to enquire about sensitive document storage. We have several customers who use our self-storage units for this purpose. To learn more about this, please read – ‘What Is The Best Way To Store Your Documents?

Security Is At The Forefront of Safeguard Storage:

Security is a critical consideration for small businesses when it comes to storing valuable inventory or equipment. Self-storage facilities provide secure storage options with advanced security measures such as surveillance cameras, electronic gates, and on-site personnel. With these measures in place, you can trust that your business assets are secure.

Convenient Access To Your Self-Storage Units:

Many self-storage facilities offer extended access hours, allowing businesses to access their stored inventory and equipment at any time. This convenient access is particularly helpful for small businesses that need to retrieve inventory frequently. You can easily access your storage unit, retrieve what you need, and return to work quickly.

Dry Self-Storage Provide The Best Protection:

Certain items, such as electronics, artwork, and sensitive documents, require exclusively dry environments to maintain their quality. Safeguard Storage proudly offers affordable, dry and secure storage units that can help preserve the quality of your valuable business assets.

Although our units are dry, we encourage our customers to bring any dehumidifier or desiccant items to their storage unit to ensure an absolute level of dryness. If moisture prevention is an absolute must, definitely enquire about Safeguard Storage’s self-storage units, as we pride ourselves on delivering the perfect dry space for all of your commercial storage needs.

Streamlined Operations:

Using self-storage can help small businesses streamline their operations. By storing excess inventory or equipment off-site, businesses can free up space in their workplace, making it easier to organize and manage their operations. Also, self-storage units provide centralised locations for inventory and equipment, making it easier to track what you have and what you need to order.

As a result, self-storage units have become an excellent tool for small businesses looking to streamline operations, save money, and keep their valuable assets secure. With flexible storage options, secure storage, and convenient access, self-storage can help small businesses overcome storage challenges and focus on growth. Your business should consider Safeguard Storage as a viable option for storing your inventory and equipment.
