Businesses That Benefit From Self Storage
Below are a few examples of businesses that can and have benefited from using self storage. Check out the types of businesses and how self storage provides the space they need to keep operating smoothly.
Home Service Businesses
- Contractors (general, electrical, plumbing, etc)
- Lawn care businesses
- Air conditioning companies
For this group of businesses, 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.
Brick & Mortar Retail Businesses
- Clothing boutiques
- Electronics specialty stores
- Office equipment companies
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 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.
Realtors & Home Staging Businesses
If you’re a realtor, a drive-up storage unit will likely meet your needs. Yard signs and other promotional materials are pretty sturdy and will get used sooner than later, so there isn’t much need for climate-controlled storage. For home staging professionals, either could 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 a climate that can be damaging to wood or upholstery, climate control is recommended. If not, a drive-up storage unit will make loading and unloading furniture and other decorative pieces much easier.
With furniture deliveries coming and going so quickly, a drive-up access storage unit is the best option.
Pharmaceutical Sales Representatives
If you plan to rent a storage unit 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.
