Businesses That Can Benefit From a Storage Unit

Businesses That Can Benefit From a Storage Unit

If you run a business, you know how quickly space can fill up and how expensive commercial space can be. Not all equipment, materials, and inventory are needed for every job, so where do you keep it all? A storage unit may be the solution you’ve been looking for. Here's a few reasons why:

  • Storage units cost significantly less than commercial space.
  • Commit to a month-to-month agreement instead of being locked into a long-term lease.
  • Month-to-month payments allow you to grow or shrink your business on your own terms.
  • Storage facilities often accept package deliveries on your behalf so you can keep all your correspondence and deliveries conveniently in one place.


Buying and selling items through an e-commerce website like Amazon, Etsy, or eBay requires a lot of space and storage. Handcrafted, vintage, or merchandise items can accumulate fast. A storage unit can provide a dedicated space for your entire inventory to free up space in your home so you can focus on the day-to-day operations. Look for storage providers that offer monthly lease agreements so you can upgrade or downsize your unit based on the needs of your business.

Sales Representatives

Keeping stock samples and promotional materials in your car, garage, or home is not ideal for any sales rep. Storage units offer an off-site location where you can easily access your products and supplies on-the-go. Take advantage of the extra space and store large display items for events like signs, tables, and tents. Eliminate the hassle of having to be present for your packages by finding a storage facility that will accept and receive deliveries on your behalf.


House, landscaping, and construction contractors manage expensive tools, materials, and equipment that require a lot of storage that trucks and trailers can’t adequately provide. Store items like this in a secure storage facility that has passcode entry, video surveillance, alarmed and monitored units, and high-security cylinder locks.

Cleaning Services

Expand your cleaning business while keeping costs down by storing your cleaning supplies in a storage unit. Find a storage provider that offers flexible hours of access so your employees may access the unit anytime they need to during your business hours.


If you’re a realtor, you know the struggle of finding a place to store the abundance of promotional materials required when selling a home. A storage unit is a simple solution for yard signs, promotional handouts, signs, and lockboxes.

Interior Designers

Store and receive furniture, decorative items, and other household items between house sales in a clean environment with a heated storage unit. Look for a drive-up access storage unit so you can load and unload furniture with ease.
