Self Storage vs Traditional Warehousing

When looking for space for stock storage, business storage or inventory, many think traditional warehousing is the only option. However, renting from a self storage facility is becoming increasingly popular for various reasons. 

Here are some of the benefits of using self storage over traditional warehousing space:

  • Flexible storage solution: Storage facilities offer a range of storage unit sizes to suit different needs – you also don’t have to commit to a long-term lease.
  • Lower costs: Storage facilities often have lower overheads – you won’t have to pay for utilities or maintenance.
  • Convenient location: Storage facilities are often located in easily accessible areas.
  • Easy access: You can usually access your storage unit whenever you need, making it easier to manage inventory and restock your shelves.

We offer an affordable and convenient alternative to traditional warehousing. So, if you’re looking for warehouse space, consider us your next option!

What Type Of Businesses Can Benefit From Using Warehouse Storage

  • Courier and logistics companies specialising in transportation and delivery services can use warehouse storage to keep vehicles, equipment and supplies.

How Are Warehousing Costs Calculated?

A warehouse storage cost is calculated similarly to a storage unit. Influencing factors include the size of the storage space, length of stay and availability. 

Here are points to keep in mind:

  • Monthly rental fees are the main cost associated.
  • The size of a unit – large storage units are more expensive than smaller ones.
  • Flexible storage helps reduce costs; stay as long or as short as needed.

Pink Hippo offers a variety of units, including 100 sq. ft and 265 sq. ft, at affordable prices!

What Cannot Be Stored In Your Warehouse

When renting a warehouse or self storage space, certain items cannot be stored due to safety, legal or practical reasons.

Some examples include:

  • Hazardous materials such as explosives, chemicals and radioactive materials.
  • Perishable goods such as food.
  • Living things, including animals and plants.
  • Illegal items, such as stolen goods or drugs.
  • Items that exceed weight or size limitations.
