How Your Startup Business Can Make Use of a Storage Unit

Estimated reading time: 3 mins

If you have recently opened a startup business, congratulations. You are in for the ride of your life and you will experience many ups and downs to boot. Whether you have been in the startup game for a few months or you are a fresh newbie, you will find that this article can help you better understand how you can get the most use out of a storage unit.

One of the most difficult parts about owning a small business is being limited on space. When you first start out, you are not equipped with a large office building or warehousing space. In fact, many small businesses operate with minimal room for many years.

If you are limited on space, you may find that it is a barrier to your growth and it may prevent you from being able to expand as quickly as you want. Self storage units are a wonderful solution to helping you with the space you need while allowing you to expand your small business.

Below, we will discuss some of the ways a self-storage unit can assist you depending on the type of small business you have.

Strictly Online Business

Whether you run a business on Amazon, an e-commerce website, or you sell crafts on Etsy, you need to be able to store your extra inventory and supplies needed to make your product. A small to medium-sized storage unit is the perfect place for you to securely store your paint, electronics, craft supplies, and more.

When you receive an order, you can simply head to the storage unit, pull the items and then package them up and ship them off. If you do have an online business, it would be a good idea to make sure the storage unit is near your home, so that you do not have to drive far when you receive the orders.

Work from Home Professional

If you are a work from home professional, you may find that your home office is littered with papers, files, and binders that you do not need right now, but do need to save. In these situations, filing cabinets work well for some of the most current papers and files, but not for everything.

A small storage unit will provide you with enough room to house multiple filing cabinets and storage bins where you can store receipts, tax information, files, customer portfolios, and more.

Restaurant Business or Catering Professional

It is easy to run out of room in a restaurant and you may feel like the walls are closing in on you, especially if you offer party or catering services too. A large storage unit can help you store all of the excess furniture, pots, pans, and tables you may have.

Even if you have excess living room furniture or fixtures or you have old items from a remodel, you can keep them in the storage unit and until you are ready to use them or sell them. Freeing up space in your restaurant will allow you, your employees, and your guests to have a better experience.

Landscaping Company

Landscaping is a popular niche market now and many individuals have started offering services to mow lawns on the weekends and after work. If you do have a lawn business on the side, you may not have the room for all of your equipment in your own garage and an outside storage unit will provide you with the convenience and space you need.

If you only use the equipment on the weekends or some days out of the week, you will find that having a storage unit benefits you. If you need to access the equipment daily, you may still find that a storage unit is beneficial, especially if the unit is near your home.
