Why Self Storage for Business?

Self Storage is an Easy Solution for any Business 

Running a business of any size, regardless of industry, requires a lot of material. Whether it's office supplies, kitchen gear, inventory, or spare parts, it all takes up space, which not everyone has in abundance. A self storage unit is a great way to free up that precious real estate! 

*Contractors need a location for the extra appliances or tools.

*New and outdated inventory for any business can stack up. Storage is always needed for old furniture, holiday decorations, or file cabinets.

*Restaurants need extra space for everything from shelving to glassware.

*Theater and film workers need places to store costumes and other tools.

*Publishers need a place to store excess inventory and supplies.

*Visual artists need a place to store paint, canvas, clay, or any materials they may use.

*In-home professionals like cleaners and plumbers also need a place to store a lot of equipment! 

We have a few more reasons why it's a good idea to use self storage for business.

Cancel your Clutter

Keeping your workplace organized can be challenging, especially when things can't just be thrown away. Self storage is a great way to clear your space while keeping your stuff accessible! Make sure to talk to your self-storage professional to find a space that works for you! Check social media for a few hacks to keep things orderly in the office, home office, or garage.



Moving extra inventory or valuable items to a secure self storage facility is a plus. A storage unit with surveillance cameras controlled access, and professional staff onsite has an added degree of security that will help ease your mind.  


Optimize Office Space 

In the world of ever-changing office use, self-storage is a go-to for businesses. Need to revamp the old conference room into a couple of open desk areas but hesitant to get rid of the high quality (and very expensive) conference table and chairs? Or, how about all the tech equipment sitting in a closet? Whether hybrid or back-in-the-office full-time, take advantage of close-by self storage for flexibility and cost savings.


Time Savers

Convenience is a must for any business - there is never enough time in the day. 

*Rent and pay online is a must!

*Having onsite managers answer questions is incredibly helpful for busy business owners. 

*Self storage should provide easy access to freeways and local customers in surrounding neighborhoods.

*In Portland's seven-plus month rainy season, the ability to load and unload under covered docks is essential.

*Downtown Self Storage is an authorized U-Haul rental location if you need to transport inventory or materials.

*Plus, boxes and additional storage supplies for purchase at the storage facility are an added bonus.
