Once a business has been around for a while, there is usually a point in time when the company’s storage needs are much larger than the space available in the office. Excessive inventory, office furniture, equipment or archived documents can pile up and overwhelm the office space and affect productivity. Fortunately there is a cost-effective solutions for business owners, using a local self storage facility. We have put together the top reasons for acquiring offsite business storage space.
- Moving Might Not Be an Option
The easiest way for a business to deal with excess items is to simply move to a new location that has more room to accommodate the items. Unfortunately, moving to a new location is often prohibitively expensive, making it an inaccessible option for many. Other businesses might be signed into a lease that lasts for a long period of time or they are in a perfect location to reach customers.
- Budget Constraints
Most businesses do not own the land on which they are situated, making it impossible to build new buildings in order to accommodate any extra inventory or equipment. They would have to go into debt in order to solve what could easily be a very temporary problem. Other businesses will simply not have the money to build new storage areas. Rather than going into debt in order to accommodate the large number of items that need to be stored, it is possible for a company to simply rent a storage unit, which tends to be a much cheaper option. As mentioned above, businesses tend to find it very expensive to move. By using business storage, the business can potentially save more money in the long or short-term.
3. Seasonal Inventory
Many businesses will only have inventory that they can sell during certain times of the year. The most obvious example are stores that carry summer furniture, clothing, and accessories. All these items are shipped far in advance of the actual season. Many businesses with seasonal inventory have found it easier to simply rent business storage units for a short period of time, until there is room and demand for the seasonal items.
The majority of business storage units are rented on a month to month basis. This provides needed flexibility for companies and does not tie them into long-term contracts. Business storage makes it easy for companies to choose the month in which they are going to need storage ahead of time, allowing the additional expenses to be worked into the budget. Choosing a nearby storage facility will allow the business owner to easily access the items at times that are convenient for them.
Business storage is an affordable solution for companies looking for short or long-term storage can help improve work productivity and solve space issues.
