While many people think of storing home items when they think of using a storage unit, businesses can also make use of these units.

Many businesses need additional space to store items, especially as they’re growing.

Here are a few of the reasons why a business may want to consider a storage unit.

Inventory Storage

As businesses grow, their inventory grows, too.

If you operate a home-based business, you may start to run into a lack of space, especially if your home isn’t that large.

Rather than continue to cram as many products as you can into a small space, you could make use of a storage unit to hold your inventory.

Even businesses that have a full office or workspace may want to store completed products at another location.

This storage space can be used to hold products that only sell seasonally, such as holiday decorations. It can also serve as storage for products that have been phased out or aren’t selling as well while you decide what to do with them.

Storage for Tools & Equipment

Some businesses have a large number of tools and equipment.

On-site service providers may need additional storage space for tools and equipment.

Examples of service businesses that could benefit by utilizing a self storage space include:

  • Roofers
  • Lawn care & landscaping services
  • Remodelers
  • Pest control services

Instead of using a storage shed, you may want to consider a storage unit.

These units provide additional security, plus you can make use of a climate controlled unit for tools that could be damaged by humidity or extreme temperatures.

Display Booths

Businesses that attend many trade shows or other shows that involve setting up a booth or portable store might need extra storage space.

Gunter Self Storage offers a place to store items when they’re not in use, including:

  • Gridwall panels
  • Shelving units
  • Display racks
  • and other promotional items

A storage unit is ideal for this.

It keeps these items out of the way when they’re not needed. It also helps keep trade booth items better organized and ensures that nothing gets left at the office when it’s all packed up.

Making Additional Room

If your business is growing, you may reach a point where you need additional space, but don’t yet have the income to purchase or rent a larger office space.

One solution is to make use of an off-site storage facility so you can bring in another employee or two.

Items you can store and always have quick and easy access include:

  • File cabinets
  • Older files & records
  • Furniture

You can store these office items in a storage unit until you are able to move to a larger space.

Temporary Storage Between Moves

When you do move into a larger space, you may not need to move everything right away.

You may also end up being unable to move everything into the new building due to remodeling or some other reason.

During this time, you can use a storage unit to temporarily hold any items you may not need on a regular basis.

You can also use it to hold items that need to be sorted through before being moved to the new building.

Just like houses, businesses can accumulate a large amount of things over the years.

You may want to temporarily house older records and other items in a storage unit until someone can go through them and purge what is no longer needed.
