Self-storage is not only an ideal solution for your average individual or family but can also work extremely well for businesses of all sizes. As the self-storage industry has evolved, so has its range of services, which can be utilized by business users to help them operate more cost-effectively. Many assume that the only business use a self-storage facility can offer is storage. We offer a wide range of services such as accepting shipments and placement of those shipments in your locker and then notifying you when your shipment arrives. We can even accept mail on your behalf and provide fax services for your organization.
Cut Back on Office Space
Self-storage is a great solution for all types and sizes of business. Whether you’re looking to store because you’re expanding too fast or want to cut back on your normal office and warehousing commitments for short periods, then you’ll probably find an answer in self-storage. It’s proved to be such a successful business logistics solution that an increasing number of businesses have cut back their office space to a bare operating minimum and are using self-storage to keep everything that isn’t needed on a daily basis in one place with easy access.
Store Documents, Excess Stock, Furniture, and More!
Businesses opt for self-storage for various reasons, the most common of which is the need to free up or to cut down on expensive office space, for use as a small-scale warehouse, distribution centre or as an archive. Commercial business users are often given preferential access to general facilities – an added advantage if you use a unit as a distribution point for stock that may need to be dispatched at short notice and at odd times. The most common uses for businesses include:
- Archiving documents, files and paperwork.
- Freeing up office space by storing items that aren’t needed on a daily basis.
- Storing office furniture and equipment.
- Storing stock, either full-time or on a seasonal basis.
- Storing office equipment and files during a move.
- As a small-scale distribution center.
- As a store for excess stock, reps’ sales samples and display or exhibition equipment
- Storing office supplies, allowing businesses to buy in bulk and gain discounts.
- Contractors who need short term storage of stock, material or equipment.

Protect Your Assets
As with general self-storage, it’s important to check out the facility before you opt to use it. A badly maintained or poorly secured site will simply lose you money if damage is caused to the items you store. Please drop by to view our state of the art facility.

It’s also vital that you make sure that you have adequate and comprehensive insurance in place. You may be able to negotiate this with your current business insurer or use our pre-approved insurance provider if your business insurance doesn’t provide coverage.
