When most people think of self-storage, they think about moving or renovations.
So, it may come as a surprise if I told you that many savvy small-business owners are viewing self-storage as an inexpensive warehouse, which offers security as well. In fact, we are seeing a growing trend of landscapers, contractors, outdoor furniture companies, construction companies, online companies and mobile salespeople joining us in our love to all things self-storage.
If you think through the math, self-storage makes sense. Most warehouses in the Greater Toronto Area are going from at least $4.50/sqft to upwards of $18-20/sqft. That’s a lot of money for a small business!
In addition to a solely financial argument, self-storage offers small businesses a lot of flexibility. Storage Solutions offers 24-hour access, security, multiple unit sizes and also, a month-to-month contract. A lot of warehouse leases require at least a 12-month commitment, and there’s no room to scale your warehouse space up or down.
If you’re a small business, keep self-storage with Storage Solutions in mind. Even if you just need temporary overflow, we make it simple, cost-effective and flexible. It’s a no brainer!
Until next time,
