How Small Businesses Can Benefit From Using Self Storage

Small businesses can greatly benefit from using self storage, whether they’re looking to save space, money or increase security. Here are some key advantages:

  • Save space: Storage for small businesses frees up valuable office space.
  • Save money: Renting a storage unit can be more cost-effective than renting additional office space or upgrading to a larger facility.
  • Secure: Self storage facilities offer top-notch security features such as CCTV, gated access and individual unit alarms.
  • Flexible: Businesses can rent large storage units or small storage units, depending on their needs. Additionally, flexible rental terms allow businesses to increase or decrease their space as needed.

Pink Hippo is the perfect solution for businesses of any size looking for secure, affordable and flexible storage options.

Types of Businesses That Can Benefit From Using Self Storage

Self storage can be a valuable asset for various small businesses and start-ups that require small business storage. Here are a few examples of businesses that can benefit from using self storage:

  • Tradesmen (plumbers, electricians and others) often require storage for tools and equipment. 
  • Ecommerce and online businesses often require storage for inventory, packaging materials and shipping supplies. 
  • Small offices with limited space can benefit from self storage to store documents, records and other items. 
  • Event planners often require storage for decorations, equipment and supplies. 
  • Freelancers such as graphic designers or writers may require storage for equipment, materials and supplies. 

Pink Hippo can be a valuable resource for small businesses of all types, providing secure, flexible and cost-effective storage options to help businesses succeed.

How Much Storage Space Does A Small Business Need?

The amount of storage space a small business needs will depend on various factors, such as the type of business, inventory levels and growth projections.

Here are some general considerations:

  • Type of business: Businesses with physical inventory, such as retail or e-commerce, will require more storage space than service-based businesses.
  • Inventory levels: A business with high inventory levels will require more storage space than a business with lower inventory levels.
  • Growth projections: A business planning to expand will require more storage space than a business with no growth plans.

Pink Hippo offers a highly flexible storage solution that can accommodate a wide range of business needs. Our storage unit sizes typically range from small (documents and files) to medium (inventory and equipment) to large (equipment and machinery).

How Much Does Self Storage Cost For Small Businesses?

Storage costs for small businesses depend on several factors.

Here’s how pricing is determined:

  • Storage unit price: The larger the unit, the more expensive it will be.
  • Length of stay: The longer a business rents, the cheaper the monthly rate will be.
  • Availability: Storage facilities in high-demand areas may charge higher rates due to limited availability.

Business storage offers specific storage solutions for businesses (shelving and other features) that may include additional costs. Flexible storage allows businesses to adjust their unit size as their needs change.
