Best Amenities for Commercial Inventory Storage
When storing supplies and inventory for your business at a storage facility, it’s good to have a solution that can accommodate your needs as a business owner and provide peace of mind. Extra Space Storage offers great commercial storage features that will suit your business inventory storage needs!
Extra Space Storage locations offer the safe self storage you want for your commercial storage items. We utilize security measures like video surveillance cameras throughout the property, electronic gate access with keypad entry, perimeter fencing, and controlled-access buildings with indoor storage units. Some of our facility locations also have more advanced security features, such as facility managers who live on-site, individually-alarmed storage units, and security access to your floor only (for multi-level facilities).
Extended Access Hours
When you’re running a business, you need to be able to get to your inventory and supplies at a moment’s notice. That’s why Extra Space Storage strives to provide convenient access for our commercial customers. Most of our facilities have extended hours from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Some facilities will even have 24/7 access available. Be sure to check with the manager of the facility you’re interested in about access hours.
Depending on the type of inventory you need to store and the region where you live, climate-controlled storage may be necessary. This convenient amenity protects sensitive materials from temperature-related damage by maintaining storage unit temperatures between 55 and 80 degrees year-round.
Certain Extra Space Storage locations have oversized warehouse storage units available for commercial customers. These spaces provide plenty of room for overflow stock, supplies, equipment, and more. Ask the facility manager for more details on warehouse unit sizing and what can be stored in these spaces.
Tips for Business Inventory Storage
While you’re researching the best storage options available at Extra Space Storage for your commercial needs, here are a few more factors to consider…
Find the Right Storage Unit Size
Estimating the unit size you need for your inventory or supplies may be difficult to determine just by “eyeing” the space. Take a look at our helpful storage unit size guide for a physical representation of how much can fit into each unit size. Also, don’t hesitate to speak with a facility manager about what you plan to store. They can provide excellent storage unit recommendations for your business!
Rent Multiple Units at Different Facilities
If you have multiple stores across the city or provide delivery services to your customers, it might be a good idea to rent storage units at different Extra Space Storage locations in the area. This can help you save money by allowing you to keep stock and supplies close by without having to drive way across town.
Opt for a Drive-Up Access Unit
Does your business need to store heavy, bulky inventory or supplies? Rent a storage unit with drive-up access! This convenient feature allows you to pull a vehicle directly up to your unit for hassle-free unloading and loading. In other words, you won’t have to move items down hallways, up stairs, or into elevators.
Ask About Business Vehicle Storage
Extra Space Storage offers secure indoor, covered, and outdoor vehicle storage options across the U.S. If you need to store a business vehicle because you can’t keep it at home or at your commercial location, we’re here to help! Ask the facility manager what types of vehicle storage solutions are available to you.
