Many people associate self storage with moving home and removals. However, a growing number of businesses are taking advantage of the convenience and flexibility that renting a self storage unit provides.
Self storage units are popular with many different industry sectors and businesses of all sizes. Tradesmen, including builders, kitchen and bathroom fitters, plumbers and electricians, often need a secure alternative to their garage or van to store stock, tools and supplies. Many self employed workers free up space at home with a storage unit and find it is a cost effective alternative to renting office space. Storage units can also serve as distribution hubs, which is perfect for online retailers.
It’s not just small businesses that rely on self storage units. Many national companies such as retailers rent storage units at multiple sites to store seasonal stock and goods. Despite the increase in digital records, there is also a demand for archive storage from many sectors including healthcare, solicitors and accountants.
Storage solutions to suit different budgets and needs
Self storage units are available in a range of sizes from simple lockers to internal storage rooms and container storage units. Tradesmen usually prefer the convenience of container storage units which have direct vehicle access and can be accessed out-of-hours. Businesses storing archives may prefer internal storage rooms. Many storage providers such as Dainton Self Storage have offices and secure compound yards to rent on their business parks and also provide storage for company vehicles.
