Using Business Storage to Your Advantage

You shouldn’t rush finding the perfect building, location ,and lease for your business, but they are also not reasons to put your business plans on hold.

Here at Albuquerque Self Storage we have reliable security and a range of different business storage sizes so that you can choose the best space that works for your current situation.

How Businesses Can Benefit from Self-Storage

Using a storage unit for your business to store vital belongings while your company moves or expands can be a smart tactic. It is a convenient way to clear space and keep your business organized while, at the same time, staying cost-effective.

Here are four types of business that can benefit from using business storage units.

Startups

For owners of startup companies, business storage units can be beneficial. For one, you will not have to worry about if your inventory will fit in your garage or basement. You can free up your current space by placing inventory in a storage unit.  

Also, essentials such as documents, office supplies and furniture can all be stored in a business storage unit. Knowing these important items are both safe and secure, for future use, can allow you to then focus on expanding your vision.

With Albuquerque Self Storage, you can rent storage units on a month-to-month basis so you do not have to commit to a long-term contract. Even better, no deposit is required.

So when you do finally find that perfect building for your business, you can stress a little less knowing all your belongings are in one safe place and you will not have to move your things from multiple locations. 

Restaurants

Restaurant owners have a long list of inventory they need in order to run their restaurant properly. These range from kitchen supplies to dining equipment. The problem is most restaurants, even with some great kitchen reorganization, do not always have the extra space to store extra items.

This is where a business storage unit can be the perfect solution.

Extra furniture such as tables and chairs can be stored in business storage units and, in the case of an event or party, the furniture is easily attainable. Also nonperishable items like canned goods, alcohol, kitchen utensils, work uniforms and seasonal items do not have to crowd your restaurant and create a hazard. You can place these items in a secured storage unit instead.

Most importantly, keeping your restaurant free from overcrowding will provide a safe and comfortable environment for your employees, customers, and yourself.

Home-Improvement

For owners of home-improvement industries, such as painting, landscaping, construction, or roofing businesses, a business storage unit can be the perfect place to store your bulky and cumbersome equipment.

Business storage units can provide paint companies with the space needed to store extra tools or supplies like paint cans, paint brushes and paint rollers. Lawn-mowing companies can store lawn mowers. Company vehicles or vehicles that are not allowed to be parked in front of homes can be securely placed in storage units too.

Depending on the type and size of the project, different types of equipment are needed for different types of jobs. The drive-up units make it easy for owners and workers to safely grab the equipment or supplies needed for that specific day.

At Albuquerque Self Storage, we keep our area fenced, well lit and each storage unit securely locked. You will not have to worry about your equipment! You can focus on keeping your employees safe and your backyard free of dangerous items. 

Artists

Storage units are a great way for artists to store their personal work or any past, present or future gallery work.  

You can store finished pieces in a safe place bringing more space to your at-home studio. Extra art supplies such as canvases, easels, brushes and paint can all be comfortably placed in units, as well. This will allow you to spend less time at the art store and more time creating!

In order to keep artwork safe, it is important that it is properly protected. Some useful tips include wrapping your artwork, adding shelving in case of flooding and renting out climate-controlled rooms in order to keep artwork clean from mold or mildew.

Conclusion

Still debating on whether a storage unit is the right move for your business? Renting out a storage unit has been proven to be much more cost-effective than renting out an extra room or office space. Also, drive-up units are convenient for those with heavy items and climate-controlled rooms are perfect for those who need to store fragile items.
