Self Storage for SMBs: A Guide

Some people may think that storage units really only have personal uses. They’re a great way to store paintings or other sensitive items in a climate-controlled environment. They can be used to store vehicles during the winter season. Or they can simply be used to hold stuff that your house doesn’t have the room for. Here at Elite Self Storage, however, we don’t think that a self storage facility is only for personal uses. Our units are also great for small businesses. With a little bit of research, a business can discover just how many advantages there are to self storage. Here’s a look at how your company can benefit and what purposes a storage unit can serve.

Affordable Extra Space

One problem with commercial real estate is that it can get pricey. Unfortunately, when your business expands your footprint definitely has to expand too, right? That may not be true. In some situations, opting for a self storage unit can help alleviate space concerns at your current facility, without dramatically boosting costs. Instead of opting for a bigger space for your business, see if you can make due with your current facility and a storage unit that helps store anything that may be taking up too much space. This move could help you save some serious money.

Document Storage

Old documents and filing cabinets can take up quite a lot of space. If these aren’t documents you frequently need to reference, why keep them at your business headquarters? Instead store them in one of our storage units. You can access our secure units at any time of day, so it’s not like you wouldn’t be able to get them when you need them.

Security Measures

Another advantage of storing your items with us is our security protocols. We use video surveillance and the latest technology to ensure that no one is accessing your storage unit who shouldn’t be. We also allow you to use your own lock for an extra layer of security. Whatever you store with us, you can be sure that your items are secure.

Seasonal Storage

A storage locker is also perfect for storing away those seasonal items that your business doesn’t need all the time. A small business may not have a huge warehouse or other types of facilities that a larger business might take for granted. Instead, a smaller company can take advantage of our storage solutions to put away holiday decorations and other seasonal items that just take up room at your offices.


A storage unit rental is far more flexible than a lease for new retail or office space. If you end up not needing your storage unit after a certain amount of time, you’re not locked in to any kind of long-term agreement. Our self storage facility offers the extra space you need, when you need it, without any complications. So whether you have excess inventory or just some seasonal storage needs, see how Elite Self Storage can help you. Contact us at (712) 560-9463 and we’ll help you find a unit that offers the space and features that your small business requires.
