Small businesses are everywhere – plumbers, contractors, lawyers, doctors, floor installers, dry cleaners, convenience stores – if you can dream it, it’s a small business. In the past, we’ve written about how self-storage can help any business save money on real estate. The math is fairly easy, office and warehouse rents are going up with demand for space, and a lot of businesses do not use their office or warehouse space in an efficient manner. We are guilty of it too!

However, self-storage isn’t just about saving rent (although, that is a top reason), it’s about giving yourself some flexibility by not committing to a long-term lease, and giving you room to grow.

There are a lot of different varieties of self-storage units, but they all fit into three categories: 1. Climate controlled storage unit; 2. Drive up storage unit; and 3. Indoor storage unit.

A climate controlled storage unit keeps the temperature, and more importantly, the humidity within the unit consistent. So, these storage units are more expensive and best for storing antiques, books, artwork, wine and invaluable items.

An indoor storage unit is within a building and usually accessible through a very large elevator. A lot of self-storage facilities are indoor storage unit facilities where the owner takes an older building and retrofits it for this new purpose. Usually it offers climate control stability, but probably the temperature isn’t what you’d think of within your home.

Finally, drive-up storage units, which is what Storage Solutions specializes in, are secure, clean, reliable and easy! This is the no frills of storage – you get a lot of value for your rent payment. If you’re a business, this storage is ideal for your inventory (drive-up means easy to load and unload with a rented van). This unit offers security and convenience.

What are the benefits of storing with Storage Solutions in Milton?

  1. SECURITY: Our units are under constant surveillance, and no, we’re not one of those other places that puts up a fake camera. We have security cameras throughout our facility, bright lighting, gated key access and security personnel. We monitor our facility and take great pride in that.
  2. EASE OF DOING BUSINESS: If you’re a bustling small business, you don’t want to spend time doing “inventory management” or pushing boxes from point A to point B. You also don’t want more inventory than you need. Enter Storage Solutions! With our storage unit, you can unload your shipment easily, take what you need from your boxes and drive away. If you get double shipments one month, self-storage is scalable, so you can rent two units for a month and downsize when you’re ready.
