How Your Small Business can Benefit from Premium Self Storage
Do you own a business or brand? Are you self-employed and looking for some extra space for your business needs? Storage units are no longer limited to just keeping inventory, tools, and seasonal items; they can even be reinvented as office spaces. If you are self-employed or thinking of starting your own business, read on to discover how a storage unit and facility can help you with growing your small business by helping you be more organized and actually help you save money by being your warehouse and flexible office space all in one.
Flexible Office Space at your Self Storage Facility
Are you looking for a professional yet affordable setting to conduct meetings with clients? Some premium storage facilities are starting to offer flexible boardroom or office space for their business clients. Ensure you look for a conveniently located self storage facility that provides you a comfortable and flexible co-working space. As a small business you need to be mindful of your time, so having your inventory and your office all in one convenient downtown location will save you time and money.
Cost Effective Self Storage for your Small Business
Some small businesses have shifted, or are in process of shifting to e-commerce and therefore do not need costly retail lease space. You can save money for your small business by taking a smaller retail space and not overpaying for out of the way warehousing. Bow City storage is conveniently located near downtown Calgary and has easy access from Crowchild Trail no matter if you’re coming from Downtown, NW, or SW Calgary. This, plus the cost savings of using self storage space instead of retails space is the ultimate convenience for your business.
Organize your Inventory in a Self Storage Unit
Another common way that storage units are used in by small and medium sized businesses is as additional storage for inventory and seasonal items such as décor. Why crowd your retail area or pay more for extra retail space (which is more expensive), when you can keep stock items offsite in a convenient and easily accessible location? You can use your storage unit as flexible warehouse space and save your hard earned money this way. Not only is it cost-effective, but also more secure to store these potentially valuable items in a unit that is monitored by cameras and security systems. Another important consideration is access – look for a self storage facility that is close to your customer base (think urban location) to make shipping your inventory a breeze.
Use Self Storage for Document and Archive Storage
Another great use for a self-storage unit is for documents and archives. Some business and organizations, regardless of size, will accumulate much paperwork throughout its lifespan. While not all of this paperwork is meant to be kept indefinitely, much of it is. In any case, it’s better to have a record of all such documents should you need to produce it at any given time. This is especially true if your business gets audited in the future. Keeping all your important business papers safe and secure in one location is usually the most convenient option. A storage unit can give you this peace of mind. Storage units provide high security levels for your confidential paperwork, as well as climate control to ensure your documents stay legible and do not deteriorate. Pests and water damage can all wreck your important paperwork. Therefore, it’s best to choose a unit that is climate-controlled so that you don’t risk ruining important client files, transactions, and business reports.
