How Self-Storage Works
If you have never rented a unit at a self-storage facility, either for your business or for personal use, you might be surprised at just how many ways a self-storage facility can assist you in keeping your business running smoothly while keeping expenses low.
You rent space month by month. This means that you pay for only the space that you need on any given month. And as your needs grow or shrink, your space can grow or shrink. Every month you can decide how much space you need, and adjust your number of units accordingly.
A Business Example
For example, let’s say that you run a small parts distribution business. Suppose that your inventory generally can fit in a space that measures 10 X 15 (feet). But one month, you get a really great deal on a popular item and you buy a pallet of the stuff. Now what? Well, you can easily add a 5 X 5 or a 5 X 10 unit to put the extra inventory in, without disturbing your normal space. When you sell the inventory (or reduce it enough to put it in your regular space), you can just vacate the unit. You don’t pay for space you don’t need!
The flexibility of adding and removing space as your needs expand or shrink make self-storage ideal for your small business. You become very efficient at space management. When your business grows, your self-storage facility can keep you growing with you, one unit at a time.
