See our list of business storage options offered at Almost Like Home Self Storage.

Self-storage is not only an ideal solution for your average individual or family but can also work extremely well for businesses of all sizes. As the self-storage industry has evolved, so has its range of services, which can be utilized by business users to help them operate more cost-effectively. Many assume that the only business use a self-storage facility can offer is storage - the reality is that many are now offering a complete range of services such as mail-boxes, office facilities, showers and coffee/meeting rooms that can help any business on a daily basis. Some self-storage facilities even specialize solely for commercial use with purpose built storage units to meet every business need.

Self-storage is a great solution for all types and sizes of business. Whether you're looking to store because you're expanding too fast or want to cutback on your normal office and warehousing commitments for short periods, then you'll probably find an answer in self-storage. It's proved to be such a successful business logistics solution that an increasing number of businesses have cut back their office space to a bare operating minimum and are using self-storage to keep everything that isn't needed on a daily basis in one place with easy access.

Business opt for self-storage for various reasons, the most common of which is the need to free up or to cut down on expensive office space, for use as a small-scale warehouse, distribution service or as an archive. Business users are often given preferential access to general facilities - an added advantage if you use a unit as a distribution point for stock that may need to be dispatched at short notice and at odd times. The most common uses for businesses include:

  • Archiving documents, files and paperwork.
  • Freeing up office space by storing items that aren't needed on a daily basis.
  • Storing office furniture and equipment.
  • Storing stock, either full-time or on a seasonal basis.
  • Storing office equipment and files during a move.
  • As a small-scale distribution centre.
  • As a store for excess stock, reps' sales samples and display or exhibition equipment
  • Storing office supplies, allowing businesses to buy in bulk and gain discounts.
