When storing pharmaceutical samples, supplies, and other inventory for your medical sales business, it’s a good idea to look for storage facilities with amenities that can preserve and protect your items. Extra Space Storage locations have many convenient features that can help your commercial storage needs!

Secure Storage

Business customers choose Extra Space Storage because they know we value security. Our storage facilities across the nation utilize security features like perimeter fencing, electronic gate access with keypad entry, and video surveillance cameras. Some facilities even offer more advanced security, such as individually-alarmed storage units, on-site resident managers, and security access to your floor only (for multi-level facilities). When you rent with us, you can rest assured your supplies are protected.

Climate Control

Renting a climate-controlled storage unit can protect your pharmaceutical products, medical devices, and other inventory from extreme heat and cold throughout the year. This helpful amenity ensures your unit stays comfortably between 55 and 80 degrees year-round to prevent damage to items kept in self storage. We highly recommend this feature for medical and pharmaceutical storage needs.

Indoor Storage Units

Along with climate control, we suggest indoor storage units rather than drive-up access units for storing medical and pharmaceutical products. Not only does indoor self storage present an additional layer of security for your commercial supply, but it also provides more protection from the elements since it’s inside a storage building. Indoor units can be as small as a locker or as large as a warehouse space, so Extra Space Storage has plenty of solutions available for your medical supply storage needs!



While you’re reviewing the best self storage options at Extra Space Storage for your business, here are a few more factors to consider…Confirm Facility Access Hours

Extra Space Storage facilities typically have extended hours from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Some facilities will even offer 24/7 access available for commercial customers. If you’re storing pharmaceutical or medical supplies that you need to access frequently at different times of the day, this is a self storage amenity that can be helpful. Make sure to talk with facility managers about when you can access your unit.

Ask About Delivery Acceptance

Some storage facilities with Extra Space Storage may accept deliveries at their locations for commercial customers, which can be a huge time-saver for pharmaceutical and medical reps. Don’t forget to ask your manager if deliveries are allowed and work with them to set up a schedule that works for everyone.

Don't Store Hazardous Materials

At Extra Space Storage, we do have rules about what you can and cannot store in a storage unit. While do allow medical and pharmaceutical sales representatives to use self storage, we do have restrictions on certain items that can be stored. Learn more from our Safe Storage Tips page and be sure to speak with a facility manager before renting a storage unit to double-check that your items are allowed.
