Best Storage Unit Options for Businesses

Looking for self storage for your business? There are all kinds of ways businesses can use commercial storage, from managing inventory to storing construction equipment. Learn more below about the best storage unit options for your business below!

Warehouse Storage

Often the best solution for oversized storage needs, warehouse storage units provide more square feet and higher ceilings than standard storage units. Because of that, these commercial storage spaces offer businesses the ability to store big, bulky items like industrial-grade power tools and heavy machinery-in addition to inventory storage, overflow stock, excess supplies and materials, and more. Plus, these units can come equipped with convenient business storage features like loading docks and ramps to help make loading and unloading more efficient and improve supply chain management.

Indoor Storage

While warehouse storage is excellent for businesses with oversized storage needs, indoor storage units are typically between 25 square feet and 300+ square feet to serve most long and short-term storage needs. Many storage lockers and indoor units are equipped with additional storage features like first-floor access, elevator access, climate control, and more. And, because indoor storage units are within our facilities, there's an extra layer of privacy and security-which can be especially important for businesses storing confidential documents, sensitive information, and additional product.

Climate-Controlled Storage

Not sure if you need a climate-controlled storage unit? Climate control benefits businesses by providing a more consistent environment for temperature-sensitive items like electronics, paper products, furniture, clothing, and more. This storage unit option for businesses can even extend the lifespan of stored items by reducing deterioration and the risk of damage caused by mold, mildew, and pests. Depending on your business storage needs, climate-controlled self storage can provide other options, like air-cooled storage, heated storage, and dehumidified storage.

Drive-Up Storage

A convenient storage option that doubles as one of the top storage features for businesses, drive-up access allows businesses to park their vehicles at their units for efficient loading and unloading. Because there's no need to haul heavy or bulky items across parking lots, drive-up access self storage can help businesses minimize the risk of damage during transportation and save time. This can be particularly helpful for companies requiring frequent unit access, or those storing large, bulky materials.

Vehicle Storage

Safely keep company cars, work trucks, and more in secure business vehicle storage to free up space in your parking lot and save money on potential parking fees and maintenance costs. Renting vehicle storage can reduce the risk of theft, vandalism, or damage-which is especially important for expensive, valuable vehicles you regularly depend on. Drive-up access units and covered parking spaces are great ways to help protect vehicles from the elements. If you live in an area with stable weather, keeping larger vehicles in outdoor car storage is an accessible, affordable business storage solution, as well.
