What is Business Storage?

Business storage can mean a lot of different things to many different types of commercial, manufacturing and professional businesses. It can range from having an off-site place to store documents to a convenient place to keep equipment, or extra inventory storage and warehouse space.

Anyone from lawyers to eBay resellers, plumbers and HVAC contractors, even lawn care companies, can benefit from having affordable storage in a modern, clean facility.

No matter your line of work, self-storage offers a cost-effective solution to help you run your business more effectively and efficiently.

More and more businesses are finding it advantageous to rent storage spaces to augment their storefront or office space, or in some cases replace it altogether.


Has your current space reached its storage threshold? The cost of renting a storage unit is less than the costs associated with relocating your storefront, office or warehouse space to a larger location.

Renting a self-storage unit can be considerably less expensive than dealing with an inflated real estate market, and additional expenses for building out a new location, combined with the hassle and disruption that can come from relocation. Plus, with month-to-month rentals, you can plan for seasonal events and changes without committing to a long-term contract.



Storage units come in a wide range of sizes, from small 5’ by 5’ units that are ideal for multiple boxes, to medium 10’ x 10’ units for seasonal inventory, up to 10’ by 30’ and even larger for warehousing needs.

Most commercial customers opt for drive-up storage units, which offer the convenience of car-side loading and unloading. Many of our facilities feature climate-controlled storage units to protect your items from the damaging effects of humidity. Indoor storage units are also available at many locations, which keep guests out of the elements when visiting their storage units.


Storage facilities are designed for easy access, often with wide driveways and large entrance areas. Traditional facilities offer drive-up storage. Indoor storage units typically have truck-accessible loading bays and docks, and wide aisles to easily navigate to the storage unit.

Plus, since we know the adage “Time = Money,” all our customers get extended gate access hours, from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day, allowing you to access your unit when it’s convenient for you.


Home Office and Storage

If you work remotely either part- or full-time, then a self-storage unit is a must-have accessory. To create a true office environment in your home, don’t just put a desk in the second bedroom and call it good. Instead, relocate those items to storage for later use. Digital nomads, who work remotely while traveling, can use storage facilities as a home base. Rather than buying a home or renting an apartment, keep those things you can’t part with (or take with you) in storage while you travel.

Who Needs Business Storage?

doing business

Professional Offices

Many types of businesses that are required to keep documents for a certain period of time often use self-storage facilities to store their files. Unused office equipment can also take up vital space. Storing supplies, workstations and other extra equipment in a storage unit can free up office space to be used as it was intended.

Restaurant Storage

Restaurants & Caterers

Many restaurants open patios during warm weather, but where does that furniture end up in the off-season? Chained up on the patio isn’t ideal, because the tables and chairs are still exposed to the elements. To extend the life of patio furniture, storage is the right answer. Caterers also use storage facilities for banquet equipment such as tents, tables, chairs, flatware and linen.


Retail Shops

For many retail shop owners, the changing of the seasons means an influx of new goods and a cramped shop yet again. By using a storage unit for back inventory, retailers can better manage their retail space during busy times of the year.



Contractors including plumbers, HVAC repair, landscapers and similar fields, choose storage units for their parts and equipment and inventory to keep their homes or small shops from becoming crowded. Drive-up units afford easy access. 



Order fulfillment can be a challenge, especially if your shop space is limited. Instead of stacking everything up precariously, store it until you can ship it.

Independent Sellers

Whether you sell your creations on a site like Etsy or are an avid flipper reseller, don’t let your inventory take over your personal space. Store your inventory in storage and free up space at home!

Sales Reps

For sales reps who keep a large inventory on hand, storage units make a great place to store sample products. Climate-controlled storage units are great for sensitive products; drive-up units are ideal for frequent visits. 

Real Estate Agents and Home Stagers

Staging a home is an important part of the sales process. Real estate agents and home staging professionals rely on self-storage to store the furniture they use for open houses.


Advantages of Business Storage

Self-storage isn’t just for homeowners looking to declutter anymore. More and more businesses are finding it advantageous to rent storage spaces to augment their storefront or office space.

One big barrier to businesses is the cost of real estate. Rent costs can inhibit small businesses from getting off the ground. Relocating can create other issues, such as losing an existing customer base, not being able to find the same amenities, or facing unwanted buildout and construction costs.

At Store Space, we know what’s important to local businesses. With benefits like low rates, convenient access 7 days a week, and right-sized units, there’s never been a better time to get a storage unit for your business.

Features and Amenities to Look For

The features and amenities to look for at a storage facility will largely be determined by your line of work, what you plan to store, how frequently you need to access your unit, as well as many other factors.

Store Space facilities are fenced, in an enclosed building, or sometimes both. They have computer-controlled gate access points, requiring a custom PIN. Interior and exterior areas are brightly lit and many are on automatic sensors. Digital video cameras watch our facilities 24/7.

Temperature Control

If you’re storing items like pharmaceuticals, wood or antiques, furniture or electronics, then it’s important to look for a climate-controlled storage unit. These are kept between 55 and 80 degrees year-round to mitigate the damaging effects of humidity, as well as heat and cold extremes. 

Easy Access

For those who’ll need to access their unit on a frequent schedule, such as contractors, then drive-up storage units are key. As the name implies, these units allow car-side access for easy unloading and loading. Wide driveways mean easy truck access. Gate access at most facilities is available 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., 7 days a week. 

Protection from the Elements

Indoor storage can be critical for storing items needing extra protection from the elements. This can be especially important for anyone needing to spend additional time in a storage unit, such as for file retrieval, taking inventory and so on.

Vehicle Storage

Other considerations involve parking, especially if you’re looking to store a work truck or equipment. Many facilities offer gated parking options for parking, while other facilities have drive-up storage units, the larger of which can be used to store equipment. 

Access Hours

Another important consideration is access. As a Store Space guest, you have gate access 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily, so you can conduct your business when it’s convenient for you. 

Account Management

With Store Space, it’s easy to manage your account online. Most transactions can be completed on your smartphone or laptop, in person or on the phone. Plus, when you sign up for AutoPay, our free automatic billing service, your payment will be automatically charged to the card of your choice. 

Access to Packing Supplies

For your convenience, many stores sell boxes, tape, packaging supplies, and much more. This can help keep your business organized as well as provide backup shipping supplies.
