What are the benefits of business storage (aside from the obvious)?

With rents at a premium and a growing trend for minimalism and open spaces, the storage industry is booming. While the benefits normally focus on individuals and private storage, similar solutions can be massively beneficial for commercial enterprises as well. 

Here, we take a look at some benefits you might not have thought of, and some of the less obvious benefits that storage solutions can provide for your business.

A more productive work environment

Many workplaces suffer from over cluttering. It’s a reality for a lot of industries – stock and tools are ordered and then not needed, or bought when prices are low and sit around for ages. Having an over cluttered workplace can have a significant impact on productivity; if you’re always struggling to find things and crawl through narrow gaps, it’s hard to stay focused. 

Not only that, an overly packed workplace can be unsafe, posing fire risks and other safety hazards. Getting some of those items that aren’t needed, in the short term at least, out of the building and into a storage container, can be a massive benefit for many businesses.

Safety

One of the main benefits of storage for businesses, one that can be overlooked, is safety. While you may think of your premises as secure, it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to dedicate the same kinds of resources as a company that offers specialised storage services. 

Most good storage units have secured perimeters, 24-hour CCTV, and sometimes even security guards who are always present. These kinds of measures are incredibly expensive to implement for a single business, but when the cost is spread across multiple clients, they can become highly affordable.

If your business regularly needs to store high-value items, using a storage unit could be a convenient way of doing so in a secure manner. Many storage facilities are also insured, adding further peace of mind and potentially enabling savings on your business insurance premium.

Save on rent

If you’re having to rent larger premises in order to store excess materials, you’re likely not being as cost-effective as you could be in terms of price per square metre. 

Commercial storage facilities are often able to offer space at a lower rate than your landlord can – their containers will likely be on less sought-after land than other businesses, leading to savings which can be passed on to their clients. 

Storage contracts are also generally on a monthly rolling basis, allowing for increased flexibility over traditional leases. With rents increasing almost everywhere, these savings could be significant for a number of businesses.

Accessibility

Storage facilities centre around two things: security, as we mentioned, and accessibility. While when in storage, your things may not be at your business, it’s possible that they’ll be even more accessible, provided that the facility isn’t too far from you. 

Storage facilities often have impressive access for commercial vehicles, and may even be able to pick up and deliver items to your business.
