Many people think self-storage units have nothing but junk in them that nobody ever comes to visit or use, but anyone who has spent time at a storage facility these days knows differently, especially since almost 20% of the self-storage customer base industry-wide in the U.S. is business or commercial-related.
Businesses use self-storage for many reasons, including surplus inventory (e.g. Holiday Season), sales and marketing materials (e.g. pharmaceutical reps), office furniture (e.g. when moving employees around or temporarily downsizing), equipment (e.g. contractors), and, of course, records and file storage, which is one of the most common business-related storage needs.
“You really get to know the business customers because they come and go regularly,” said Stevey Heinrich, Manager at JOCO Self Storage in Lenexa, KS, a facility operated by Beyond Self Storage, a new company/brand that offers extended access hours, convenient loading areas, complimentary carts and pallet jacks, climate controlled units, delivery/package acceptance, and other amenities that are ideal for business and commercial renters, including business centers with free WI-FI and a printer/copier so employees visiting/using the facility have a place to work and don’t miss a beat.
“Business renters often have experience renting self-storage units and tend to be very savvy,” added Heinrich, “partly because they have figured out that self-storage is much cheaper than renting more office space and less risky than committing to a long-term lease for warehouse space, and partly because they recognize the value that a full-service self-storage facility has to offer.”
If your business is growing or bursting at the seams, downsizing or transitioning, or just in need of some additional storage for supplies/inventory, equipment, or records/files as we head into the New Year, consider renting an affordable and flexible self-storage unit to meet your storage needs.
