Mini storage rental? As in self storage space? A growing number of small businesses are turning to mini storage rental as a way to avoid leaving their existing offices.
A few years ago, I did some marketing work for a self-storage company. I’d always thought mini storage was for people on vacation, homeowners with little storage space, or students away for the summer. It had never occurred to me that a huge number of mini storage users are small businesses.
Why use mini storage rental space?
- Space for excess inventory
- Seldom-accessed records, like those tax returns from five years ago
- Seasonal products
- Seasonal promotional materials
- Tradeshow exhibits
- Product samples
- Rarely used equipment
Some mini storage facilities accept deliveries and even provide 24-hour access. Why rent more office space when you could rent small or large storage units on a no-lease basis? Mini storage sounds like a great idea.
