No, you cannot run a business out of a cheap storage units, but you can solve many problems facing small businesses by renting a mini storage unit. Read on to find out what self storage can do for you, and call us at (817) 439-1380 if you have further questions.
What is the biggest problem faced by a home-based business owner?
Besides what seems like a continual lack of money, the biggest problem home-based business owners face is a lack of available space. A growing business needs room to expand. There needs to be space for inventory, and that spare bedroom can only handle so much inventory. The same is true of the garage. If your home based business grows, it will soon outgrow the home, and that is a truth thousands of small business owners face yearly.
So what is the solution?
There really are only two choices: a business owner can either find affordable industrial property for lease, or they can follow our suggestion and look for a self storage unit to rent.
Industrial property for rent
Just go find a warehouse for rent and store you inventory and supplies there. Sounds simple enough until you go to price a warehouse for rent. Most home based business owners simply cannot afford a warehouse for rent. Prices range from $1,000 to $3,000 per month in most cities, and very few small business owners can afford those prices simply to store overflow product. This really is no solution at all for most business owners.
Which brings us to renting a storage unit.
Consider that a 10’x20’ storage space, a full 200 square feet of floor space, will cost you in the neighborhood of $150 per month in most storage facilities. At Blue Mound 287 Self Storage, our business, a 10’x20’ unit will cost $135. If you want that unit climate controlled you are looking at $149 per month. Compare that to the cost of renting a small warehouse and the choice is a simple one.
Are storage units secure?
Secure self storage is key, and most reputable self storage facilities offer state-of-the-art security systems.
Are they readily accessible?
Blue Mound 287 Self Storage gives you access to your belongings/inventory 24/7, 365, and that’s about as accessible as you could hope for.
Can you afford $150 per month to take back your home? Most likely yes, you can! More and more business owners are discovering the wisdom in doing exactly that. It is money well-spent to regain your sanity and return your home to its original purpose, which is to provide a comfortable living space for you and your family.
