At Cactus Self Storage, we continue to see an increase in the amount of businesses that are using self-storage units for storing everything from inventory to excess office equipment and supplies.
While there are many reasons why a business would find using a storage unit beneficial, perhaps the biggest reason is simply to declutter their working environment. This makes a huge difference when you are trying to create or maintain an organized and professional workspace for yourself or employees. Often times it’s easy for a business to accumulate quite a bit of “stuff” over the years without realizing just how crowded the office has become.
That’s why for many businesses, a storage unit is the perfect solution for storing seasonal items that are only needed at certain times of the year. This can include inventory as well as holiday decorations. Instead of trying to overload your already crowded storage closet or having to lease additional office space to hold these seasonal items, a quality storage unit is often a much simpler and inexpensive option.
Whether you are simply planning ahead for an upcoming season by ordering a shipment, or you need a place to store leftover inventory for next year, a storage unit might be just the right solution. This gives you the option to order in bulk, which can save you money and there is often a drop in shipping costs when more supplies are ordered at one time. Also keep in mind the fact that larger orders would mean that you wouldn’t have to place as many orders throughout the year, giving you more time to spend in other areas of your business.
Many businesses find that decorating for seasons and holidays is a great way to attract more customers or at least add to the customer experience. If you own a restaurant, for example, and change the decorations frequently, you may soon run out of space to store these decorative items. By placing them in a storage unit, you can keep your decorations more organized and easier to access. They will also be better protected so you can continue to use them for years to come.
Seasonal Office Supplies
Seasonal businesses are busier at certain times of the year depending on the market demand for their product or service. During those busy seasons, as they staff up to meet higher demands, they may need additional office equipment and supplies. Rather than waiting for a shortage to order new supplies, buy in bulk ahead of time and keep them in a storage unit so that you can increase your sales while these items are still hot.
These are just a few of the many reasons more and more businesses are using self-storage units at Arizona Storage Centers. Remember that we do offer climate-controlled units as well for any items that might be sensitive to temperature.
