Whether you’re self-employed or part of a small team, it can be invaluable to consider the potential advantages of obtaining a separate professional space. Whether that is an office or a storage area for commercial use, it can be a potential game-changer for a budding business. Many small businesses run into space issues as they grow. When you rent a small commercial storefront, maybe the stock room is more than enough. The following year, your business grows, products fly off the shelves, and you find that keeping your stock, well, stocked is a challenge. Moving from your current location is probably a complete no go. You may not be able to afford the move, or perhaps your location is ideal for your current business. There may be many reasons, and any of them can be a total deal-breaker, so what to do?
Storage spaces are available in any number of sizes to best fit your needs, be they a small area to keep a tiny amount of product or supplies, or a garage, even warehouse-style space that can hold practically a whole building’s worth of items. This mobility and space can allow you to expand your business for a fraction of the cost of renting a traditional commercial space of a similar size. With temperature control options for sensitive items, drive-up access to units for easy loading or unloading, and fully secure property with 24/7 digital video surveillance? Your belongings will probably be safer kept in a storage unit than anywhere else.
Office spaces in particular can be incredibly expensive for what they are, practically speaking, but renting specifically from a storage company can provide you a personal office space without having to consider investing in commercial real estate specifically designed with offices in mind. If you’re a single employee, or only one of two, three, or even a four-man team, it can be a game-changer. The very idea of adjusting away from working at home to working in an office can be a bit daunting, but it can also be uplifting and empowering. There’s nothing quite like the feeling of stepping into your own office for the first time.
To afford the upwards mobility you need as a budding professional, storage may be all the extra wiggle room you need to take your business from a ‘small’ business to something greater. Whether it serves just you, or an entire small team, or ultimately your customers, an increase in space is an increase in flexibility. It provides other benefits too, access to moving and shipping supplies for online sales, a place to store unsold stock during off seasonal periods, or even storage for large professional vehicles that you may not need all the time. There is a practically endless list of reasons why investing in a commercial storage or office space could benefit your business, so why not contact us today and see for yourself?
