Commercial Storage

Why Use Commercial Storage?

These days business owners often need extra room to store things like equipment, furniture or inventory. Commercial storage usually costs less than commercial real estate, making it a smarter financial choice to rent a storage unit than to expand your facilities.

In addition to the lower costs associated, self-storage units also offer shorter leases in case you need to store things temporarily. Any heating or lighting is also factored into the cost, meaning you have a flat rate each month to worry about.

What Types of Businesses Use Commercial Storage?

Business owners who have extra tools or inventory cluttering their space will benefit from renting a business storage unit. Alternately, those who have simply run out of room in their office for storing documents and furniture could also benefit from commercial storage.

Many business owners run into space issues at some point and business storage offers a safe, secure space to hold their extra items. Renting a commercial storage unit is much more cost effective than renting a larger office space, and the peace of mind from knowing your confidential or expensive items are safe is priceless.

The types of businesses who most commonly use storage units are:

  • Contractors
    As a contractor, it's likely that you have many tools, extra lumber, drywall and many other construction supplies. A self-storage unit is the perfect solution to keep your tools and supplies safe from vandals, pests, harsh weather or anything else that might cause damage to these essential parts of your business.

    If you have an extra company truck you need stored for a long period we offer units large enough to accommodate your truck, trailer or any other large items you want to keep safe.
  • Landscapers
    Do you have extra lawn mowers and yard tools you don't feel comfortable leaving on your truck or trailer all night? Consider storing them in a secure storage unit and you'll never have to worry about stolen equipment again. We offer safe conditions for lawn mower storage.
  • Painters
    While our facilities can't accommodate paint storage given the hazardous nature of this material, we can help with any other storage needs your painting business might have. From tarps to drop cloths to extra brushes, rollers, sprayers, ladders and any other painting supplies you need stored, we can help!
  • Roofers
    Need a place to store those extra shingles before you install them on a client's roof? Whether it's roofing tools like hammers, pry bars, shovels, caulking guns or any other items you need to help you do your job, we have a storage unit that will fit your needs.
  • Retailers
    Our business storage units are perfect for storing clothing, furniture, toys and just about any other type of product your retail business might be selling. Need a place to store items during a store remodel? We can accommodate your needs.

    From temporary to long-term storage, we can store your items safely. We also have climate controlled storage units to help keep sensitive items protected from extreme hot and cold weather conditions.

Commercial Storage FAQ

Here are some frequently asked questions we hear from clients. We'll go over what constitutes a commercial storage unit, what the benefits are and some commercial storage unit best practices and rules.

Can any storage unit be used for business purposes?

Not all storage units can be used for commercial storage. Please make sure to speak to the property manager before assuming you can store business items.

This makes it easier to load and unload items, all while knowing your things are being safely guarded.
