Not every small business has the same storage needs, which is why Extra Space Storage provides a variety of storage solutions that are perfect for your commercial storage needs.

Small Businesses that Benefit From Self Storage

Renting a storage unit is a smart option for small businesses across many different industries. Check out the types of small businesses that can benefit from self storage below!

Retail Businesses

If your small retail business lacks the space to keep extra inventory on-site, renting self storage provides an affordable and secure solution for inventory management. Storefront displays, such as discount signage and seasonal displays, can also be kept in a storage unit.

E-Commerce Businesses

For online small businesses, renting a storage unit for managing inventory is a great solution. If you've been running your business from home, e-commerce storage can help you maintain a work-life balance while keeping your stock secure and organized.

Real Estate Agents

Whether it's the home decor and furniture you use for home staging or the seller's furniture that needs to be moved out temporarily, real estate agents have many ways to use self storage. Small business storage units can also be great for storing signage and promotional materials.

Interior Designers

Interior designers often need to empty a home of furniture and decor before renovating and redecorating. Storing furniture in a storage unit can reduce clutter and safety hazards during the interior design process. Self storage can also be great for storing extra design materials!

Event Planners

As an event planner, you'll likely have items that need to be stored between events, such as chairs, tables, decorations, and more. By using self storage for event planning, you can help keep your items safe and sound so that they're ready to go for the next big event.

Lawn Care & Landscaping Companies

Small business storage offers a variety of benefits for lawn care professionals. You can easily store lawnmowers, trimmers, snowblowers, and other maintenance tools in your storage unit, as well as landscaping materials like masonry. If your business has vehicles, storage can help there, too!


Electricians who need a secure place to store tools, materials, and parts for their small business will find self storage to be a great solution. And with many storage locations being located off major intersections and freeways, it's easy to swing by your unit when you need to grab items.


Looking for a convenient place to store plumbing equipment and materials for your small plumbing business? Plumbers can rent small business self storage units to keep plumbing fixtures, pipes, valves, faucets, and hardware neatly organized and out of the way.

Maintenance Workers

From carpentry and plumbing to HVAC, maintenance workers are expected to keep tools for a variety of general repairs and equipment checks. Renting a storage unit for maintenance work can be a game-changer. Easily access your tools and keep them organized by using self storage.

Commercial Storage Features to Consider

When you rent small business storage at Extra Space Storage, you can find storage units with unique amenities that make storing your items more convenient.

Drive-Up Access

Storing large, heavy items for your business is easier than ever when you rent drive-up self storage. Drive-up units make loading and unloading more convenient—simply pull your vehicle directly up to your small business storage unit to access your space.

Secure Storage

Extra Space Storage locations offer secure self storage to give you peace of mind. With excellent security measures like video surveillance and electronic gate access, we provide a safe business storage solution. Some of our locations also have more advanced features, such as on-site resident managers, individually-alarmed storage units, and security access to your floor only.

Indoor Storage

By renting indoor storage, you can better protect your small business items! Indoor units at Extra Space Storage provide a secure space for fragile or delicate items—and best of all, you won't have to stand out in the rain, heat, or snow when moving items in and out of your unit.

Extended Access or 24-Hour Access

Small business owners often work irregular hours, so being able to access inventory and equipment on short notice is essential. Many of our self storage facilities come with extended access hours from 6am to 10pm, and some even provide 24-hour storage access. If you're curious about access hours, contact the facility manager for more information.

Climate-Controlled Storage

If you have temperature-sensitive inventory or materials that you need to store, your business should rent climate-controlled storage. This convenient amenity typically maintains internal unit temperatures 55 and 80 degrees year-round to help protect sensitive items from damage.
