Without a doubt, storage facilities are great places to store those extra items you have no room for at your home or place of business.  And thousands of people have discovered they are also great for car storage, boat storage, RV storage, or trailer storage.  But what most people don’t realize is that common storage units, found in storage buildings across the nation, make perfect small shops for lease.

And we are going to tell you all about that use in this article.  We are Blue Mound 287 Self Storage, serving the Greater Fort Worth, Texas Metro area, and we consider ourselves to be knowledgeable experts in the self storage industry.  Call us at 817-439-1300 for more information about self storage in general and storage as small shops for lease in particular.

Let’s look at how it can work for you.

Small shops for lease size at storage facilities

The term “small shops” is a bit subjective. What does “small” mean?  A one man shop can be no larger than 10’x10’ if it allow room for the equipment that man needs to do his job.  Or 10’x20’, or even 20’x30’.  That’s 600-square feet, the size of a studio apartment, and that is certainly large enough for a one-man shop.

For most storage facilities, that is the top end in size available, so let’s use that as the example going forward.

What would a small shop rental cost you in an industrial park?

600-square feet, in an industrial park, will cost, at the very least, around $1000 per month in an industrial park. We know that because our parent company has several industrial parks, and one such park, Box Office Warehouse Suites, has shops for rent, 320 square feet in size, renting for $1000 per month, and that is about as low a price as you can hope to find in the Fort Worth Metro area.  We invite you to do your research and make some phone calls, but we are pretty confident in that information.

What it will cost you at a self storage facilities

Using our own Blue Mound 287 Self Storage for an example, we rent 10’x30’ storage units, with electrical outlets, for $250 per month, and 20’x30’x storage units, again with electrical outlets, for $430 per month.  Now, compare that to the industrial park price we mentioned earlier, and you will begin to see why storage facilities are now considered a good alternative to traditional, industrial park shops for lease.  Savings in the neighborhood of $500-$750 per month can make or break a small business and, in our opinion, at least looking at as storage unit as a possible alternative just makes good business sense.
