STORAGE TIPS

Everything You Need To Know About Commercial Storage

Posted on September 27, 2022


Whether you are starting a business or have been running one for a while, storage rentals are always a great option when you need more space. When you first start a business, you usually don't require much space but as the company grows, so does the need for storage.

Renting space at a storage facility provides more affordable storage than either purchasing or renting building space, so, unless you need room for more people, you might want to look at a storage locker.


Storage Is Perfect For

Additional storage space is great for document storage, seasonal items, and other extra items you own as part of operating a business. Understandably, it can pose a little more challenges when the storage is located away from where your office is; with that being said, there is always the option of renting a portable storage container (MI-BOX) to keep onsite, if you have the space.


Things To Consider

Depending on what you are storing, you may want to consider the security around your self-storage locker, such as 24-hour video surveillance or whether it has an individual keypad for entry.

If you are using your commercial storage unit to store items that are sensitive to temperature changes, such as documents, furniture, and electronics, look at storage facilities that have temperature-controlled units. 

You will want to know what size you need to hold your items. If you are unsure, use Space Centre Storage's storage unit estimator to get a better idea. In most cases, storage units are rented on a month-to-month contract, so if at any time you need more space (or need to downsize) you can always make that change.
