Commercial Storage Solutions for Small Businesses

When you’re running a small business, it can be hard to find additional space without breaking your budget trying to renovate your building or moving to a larger (and more expensive) location. If you need more room to store your excess inventory or you’re looking to use your office space to fit more employees, self storage is perfect for nearly any business storage scenario.

Self Storage is Affordable and Cost Effective

Self storage is an affordable and cost effective way to manage your space. Small businesses often operate on a strict budget, which can make it difficult to acquire usable space that fits their budget. Instead of investing money into a larger office, many small business owners utilize self storage to store their products and supplies.

Self Storage Declutters Your Office Space

Do you find your supplies and products cluttering your office space? Whether your business is facing an expansion or looking to downsize your space to be cost-effective, self storage is a quick and easy solution to organize your supplies and products as well as being significantly cheaper than paying for an office expansion.

Here are some tips for storing your belongings away when using self storage:

  • Start gathering as many boxes and supplies you think you will need. At Total Storage solutions, we also provide packing supplies and moving materials to make your move a breeze.
  • Create an inventory list of the items you plan to store and keep it in a safe place. When it’s time for you to move to a different sized unit or commercial space, this list will help you keep track of what is currently stored.
  • Take note of the items you will need access to the most and place them towards the front of the unit.
  • Do not store any items that are combustible.
  • Write what items are in boxes on all sides for easy identification purposes.
  • Avoid placing sharp or heavy objects near furniture and other fragile items.
  • Cover your furniture with blankets or plastic to prevent dust from settling.

Manage Inventory and Business Growth

Self storage units are a great solution for managing your inventory as your business grows so you can keep business afloat without constant chaos and clutter.
