What Businesses Can You Run From A Self Storage Unit? 

The first thing you consider when starting your own business may not be storage but there are many types of company that will require business storage. If you can’t store all your goods, materials, and paperwork at home, where can you keep them?

Self storage is the ideal option for a variety of businesses that don’t have the room at home, or on their premises, to keep every item they need safe and secure. If you don’t have space at home you may also consider a storage unit for office self storage to keep all your archived documents neatly stored should you need them at a future date.

Online businesses and marketplace businesses

If you sell through an online marketplace – such as Amazon or eBay – or sell through your own website, it can often be difficult to find all the space you need for your business storage. When you first start up you may find there is enough room in a cupboard at home or in the spare bedroom, as your business grows it’s likely you will outgrow this space and yet you won’t be in need of shop premises. In this situation self storage is ideal for keeping your products safe and having easy access to them when you receive an order.

Vintage Clothing or Furniture

If you love to show your quirk and admire the historical you may have you own retro business selling vintage clothing or antique furniture. Often these items can be heavy or bulky and it may be cheaper to use business storage than to lease premises to keep your goods safe.

Catalogue Sellers

From plastic food containers to toiletries and cosmetics, if you are a successful catalogue seller it may be difficult to keep all your products in your own home. With an easy access storage unit you can organise your catalogue items ready to pick out when the orders come in.

Event Organisers

 Organising events is a tough job and can require you to keep the oddest props to hand without necessarily having a regular venue to store your items. From decks to speakers, from pink flamingos to wedding arches, it’s not always easy to store bulky items when you don’t have a permanent address for your fab events. Using self storage will ensure that you can pick your items up right before the big day without having to worry.

Market Stall Sellers

 If you run a market stall it is likely that there won’t be a space for you to keep your products when the market isn’t open. A business storage unit is an ideal place to keep your goods and your paperwork without having to clutter up your personal space.
