Small businesses are everywhere – plumbers, contractors, painters, lawyers, doctors, RMTs, chiropractors, floor installers, dry cleaners, convenience stores – if you can dream it, it’s a small business!
In the past, we have 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 many businesses do not use their office or warehouse space in an efficient manner. We’re guilty of it too!
However, self-storage isn’t just about saving rent (although, that is a top reason). It’s about giving your business:
There are a lot of different varieties of self-storage units for rent, but they all fit into three categories:
A climate controlled storage unit keeps the temperature, and more importantly, the humidity within the unit consistent. A temperature controlled storage unit provides temperature regulation only. Climate-controlled storage units are typically more expensive and best for storing certain items, which high monetary and or sentimental value. Learn more about the differences between these types of storage and what items tend to fare better when stored in units with regulated environments.
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 or temperature controlled storage option. Our Woodstock self storage facility offers indoor temperature controlled storage in a large variety of sizing options. This facility was a brand-new custom build and all our units are on the ground floor, so no need to maneuver through an elevator.
Finally, drive-up storage units, which is what our Milton self storage facility specializes in (and our Woodstock location offers too), 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 type offers security and full 24/7 convenience.
