Mini storage rental | Why rent mini storage space?

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.

I have actually been toying around with the idea of turning a surburban cluster apartment into a home office. They have everything: kitchen, garages, loo etc. Turn the bedrooms into offices, the lounge area can be open-plan and so on. Best of all I am saving thousands in rent money. What’s your thought on this?
