Often when people think of self storage they assume it is mainly for personal use, to store unwanted household items, or your furniture whilst you move. However, businesses of all types and sizes are now opting to use self storage for various reasons.
In this article, we cover what business storage is, why you might need it, and how Hogleaze Storage can help you find the best storage solution for your needs.
What is business storage?
Business self storage is a system where owners rent units to store their goods remotely, typically when they do not have the space to do so in their own premises. These can be rented long or short term and can be due to a number of reasons.
Why would businesses need self storage?
As mentioned above, there are many reasons why a business might consider self storage. These may include:
- Saving office space – employees might find it hard to concentrate at work if the office is crowded and untidy. It might be sensible to have a clear-out and store goods or paperwork that you don’t need on a regular basis in a storage unit.
- Storing stock – business self storage is particularly useful if you have excess stock. This could be anything from slow-moving or bulky stock, to exhibition and trade show stands.
- Keeping items safe – although your work premise might be secure, self storage units offer state-of-the-art security, with CCTV cameras. Insurance is also available, which will help ensure your items are protected.
- Cutting costs – space can be expensive to rent, especially if you’re renting somewhere large enough to home all your stock and paperwork. Business storage could free up more space for you to downsize your office, warehouse or retail space, saving you money in the long-run.
- Convenience – some storage facilities will be open 24/7 which means you can access your storage unit whenever your business requires. Self storage can also be very flexible in allowing you to rent short or long term.
- Document storage – with so many regulations around keeping personal data safe and secure, documents can take up a lot of space in an office. We have dedicated units for document storage which include racks to make it easy to see your paperwork. Learn more here.
