The challenges of running a business place constant pressure on companies to get creative with their cost-cutting, from downsizing and outsourcing to telecommuting and the building of virtual stores. Space has also wandered onto the radar of business owners and decision-makers. For many, self storage is helping them keep costs down and avoid a bottom line written in dreaded red ink.
Storage units, traditionally seen as personal or household solutions, offer a viable and cost-efficient way for businesses to hang on to assets such as office furniture and documents while maintaining space where they need it most. Commercial storage needs can vary as widely as the companies themselves – some burgeoning home businesses rely on self storage for housing excess products or to house inventory from which they can fulfill orders, while larger, more established operations can benefit from an extra place to store items, whether for temporary disturbances like renovations or something long term.
A matter of time and space
When an oversized inventory threatens to cramp your retail environment, you can sacrifice precious floor space or you can make business-savvy move: Storage units are ideal for cutting down on clutter and freeing up in-store space that should be reserved for more valuable purposes.
In areas where space can be even harder to come by, such as Downtown Toronto, storage facilities provide an inexpensive home for excess items. But be wary of a self storage solution that doesn’t protect your items with proper security – including 24-hour surveillance with strategically placed cameras as well as individually alarmed storage units. Whether you’re keeping files with personal information or simply trying to keep bulky furniture out of the way, your business likely can’t afford to lose a step because of porous security.
