    UNIQUE ADVANTAGES OF USING SELF STORAGE FOR BUSINESS

    Outside of providing much-needed space for your business, renting commercial self storage offers unique benefits that many might not consider.


    Save Money: Find Cheap Commercial Storage

    Not only is a renting storage unit itself often cheaper than other storage options, such as a larger office space, but many businesses have found that they don't actually need office space at all when they use self storage. This combination can add up to big cost savings. Of course, not all businesses can operate without office space, which is why we offer this amenity at many of our locations.

    Prime Locations: Locate Your Business Strategically

    In many cases, there are multiple Extra Space Storage facilities conveniently located throughout a city. This is good if you need to strategically choose self storage locations close to your work to cut down on travel time whenever you need to grab inventory, equipment, or files. It can also benefit businesses within the home service industry, as renting commercial storage near by in different areas of town can lessen transportation time and other travel-related expenses.

    Flexibility: An Adjustable Business Storage Solution

    Month-to-month business storage rental agreements provide the flexibility you need to store commercial items and allow you to make changes when you need to. You know you need space now, but it's hard to know what will happen in the next year, let alone the next few months. Will you need more storage space? Less? Maybe your location doesn't make sense anymore and it would be more beneficial for you to rent a business storage unit in a different area of town.

    COMMERCIAL STORAGE FEATURES & AMENITIES TO CONSIDER

    Depending on what you're using self storage for and what you'll be storing, there are different features and amenities our storage facilities offer that you may want to keep in mind.

    Extended Access or 24-Hour Access

    Standard access hours aren't going to cut it for most businesses using self storage. At Extra Space Storage, extended access hours, such as 6am to 10pm, are widely available. 24-hour access storage is also an option at many of our locations. Be sure to ask the site manager for details on access hours!

    Drive-Up Access

    If you'll be making frequent trips to your business storage unit to pick up and drop off equipment or inventory, you're going to want drive-up access. This is especially true for contractors or other service industry businesses that are constantly storing heavy items in a business vehicle or trailer.

    Climate-Controlled Storage

    For retail shops that store business inventory like clothing and accessories or businesses storing documents, a climate-controlled storage unit is usually going to be a better option than a storage unit with drive-up access. An indoor access storage unit can keep your inventory in a temperature-controlled environment to make sure that extreme heat or cold won't impact the integrity of your products.

    Deliveries Accepted

    If you plan to use self storage to store inventory or materials, being able to have items delivered to the facility is a major convenience. Many Extra Space Storage locations across the country offer this for businesses, saving you both time and effort.

    Wide-Drive Aisles

    If you plan to transport your own inventory to the facility, it's important that the aisles are wide enough to accommodate your vehicle. Many of our locations can accommodate vehicles as large as 18-wheeler trucks.

    Secure Storage

    When storing anything essential to your business, whether it's retail inventory or construction equipment, you need to know your items are safe within storage. At Extra Space Storage, we place a strong emphasis on providing secure storage facilities with features ranging from electronic gate access and video surveillance to on-site resident managers and individually-alarmed units.

    BUSINESSES THAT BENEFIT FROM SELF STORAGE

    Below are a few examples of small business storage solutions. Check out the types of businesses and how self storage provides the space they need to keep operating smoothly.

    home-service-business

    Home Service Businesses

    Home service businesses typically require ample storage space to handle parts and materials, equipment, and even vehicles. These small businesses often rent expensive flex space or offices with a workshop, but self storage offers everything they need at a much lower price. Home service businesses that frequently use self storage include contractors, lawn care businesses, and air conditioning companies.

    Storage Recommendations: For home service and contractor storage, storage units with drive-up access are very popular. Trucks and cargo vehicles can pull right up to the storage unit to load and unload. Auto storage is also popular for these businesses. Many home service businesses operate using multiple vehicles, and in some areas of the country, employees can't park them in front of their homes.

    business-storage-brick-mortar

    Brick & Mortar Retail Businesses

    For retail businesses, managing inventory can be a constant struggle. Commercial retail space is expensive, and beyond just fitting inventory into the store's space, there's also a concern about creating a quality shopping environment that patrons will enjoy. To maintain a clean, uncluttered shopping area and effectively store and manage inventory, these businesses often rent storage units. Retail businesses that use self storage include clothing boutiques, electronic specialty stores, or office equipment companies.

    Storage Recommendations: For retail businesses, indoor climate-controlled storage units are often the best commercial storage solution. Climate control will help protect inventory from extreme temperatures. If the inventory isn't temperature-sensitive, then a storage unit with drive-up access is also a good option.

    E-Commerce Businesses

    For many e-commerce businesses, the need for an office outside of the home has been completely eliminated by simply renting a storage unit. These small businesses can operate from home, and all inventory can be stored at a storage facility. E-commerce businesses can utilize storage units to keep inventory or office supplies in a secure environment.

    Storage Recommendations: E-commerce business storage needs are very similar to that of brick and mortar. Both indoor climate-controlled and outdoor drive-up access units can work. You just have to make the decision based on the inventory you have and whether or not extreme high or low temperatures could damage your products.

    realtor

    Realtors & Home Staging Businesses

    If you're in the business of selling houses, you know there's a lot more that goes into it than meets the eye. Whether you're a realtor with an abundance of promotional materials or a home staging professional with furniture to store and clutter to remove from homes on the market, self storage is a simple solution for much-needed space.

    Storage Recommendations: If you're a realtor, a drive-up storage unit will likely meet your needs. For home staging professionals, drive-up storage or climate-controlled storage can be used, depending on the weather in your area and what you'll be storing. If you're storing high-end furniture and work in an area with an adverse climate, climate control is recommended. If not, a drive-up storage unit will make loading and unloading furniture and other decorative pieces much easier.

    interior-designer

    Interior Designers

    Many interior designers work from home or prefer to use the office space they have as a showroom. Because of this, renting a storage unit or warehouse space ƒis a great way to keep those spaces from becoming cluttered with frequent furniture orders. You can use your storage unit to help securely store design materials, furniture, lighting, or home decor pieces that you want to keep out of the way.

    Storage Recommendations: With furniture deliveries coming and going so frequently, a drive-up access storage unit is the best option. By being able to pull directly up to your unit, you can unload and load items quickly, giving you more time back in your day to focus on your business.

    pharmaceutical-sales-representative

    Pharmaceutical Sales Representatives

    Pharmaceutical companies have started using self storage facilities as their home base for sales representatives rather than finding office spaces. Storage units and the accompanying business solutions that many facilities offer provide everything a pharmaceutical sales rep needs. Plus, it's a much more affordable alternative to renting office space.

    Storage Recommendations: If you plan to rent a storage unit for medical pharmaceutical storage to store drug samples, marketing materials, and more, climate-controlled storage is a must. Also, finding a location that accepts deliveries will be important, which many Extra Space Storage locations do.

    CAN YOU RUN A BUSINESS OUT OF A STORAGE UNIT?

    While you're not allowed to operate a business out of a storage unit, such as having customers visit your storage unit to buy products, you can use a self storage unit to help support your business needs and growth. Our storage units provide convenient, affordable space to store inventory, parts, and materials. We also offer warehouse storage space for businesses with large storage needs, as well as business centers at select locations with office space and amenities like wi-fi available for businesses to operate from our facility.
