As businesses grow, they accumulate more things, from inventory to equipment. While items and materials can start accumulating, it doesn’t mean that a business can or wants to obtain another building for more space. Some businesses benefit more from a commercial storage unit rather than the costly option of renting or buying an entirely new building.
At CRS Moving & Storage, we have decades of experience helping Brooklyn businesses find customized storage solutions. Whether you need storage for office furniture, lab equipment, or business files, our team can help ensure the safety and protection of your business belongings.
Benefits of Using a Commercial Storage Unit for Your Business
CRS Moving & Storage has helped several different businesses from various industries find storage solutions that allow their operations to grow and succeed. Benefits of obtaining a storage unit for your business include:
Cleaning Up the Workspace
Studies have shown that cluttering not only creates a disorganized space but can also impact employee productivity and morale. Taking items that are not needed on a daily basis can create more room to organize the workplace and offer the team more arm space to work. An organized and spacious workplace can create a better working environment.
Depending on the industry and type of business, the current workspace may not be as secure as a commercial storage facility. State-of-the-art security systems can be costly for a smaller business. At CRS, we offer added security features to ensure business owners are confident in the safety and preservation of their belongings.
Commercial storage units are designed to protect what’s contained inside. From climate control to pest control, a commercial storage facility ensures that important documents and other business valuables are protected from damage.
CRS Moving & Storage is proud to offer accessible locations that are opened 24/7 to Brooklyn businesses. When you partner with us, you can be assured that you’ll be able to access your business belongings whenever you need them.
As mentioned above, renting a storage unit for equipment, seasonal merchandise, and more can be far more cost-effective than leasing or building. Additionally, at CRS, we offer other services such as van rental, and we are a one-stop-shop commercial moving company that removes the hassle of dealing with third parties.
How to Organize a Storage Unit for Optimal Use
Filling up a storage unit for functionality isn’t just about placing things inside or even labeling boxes. A storage unit needs to be properly organized and cataloged to ensure optimal use. Below are seven tips to help you organize your storage unit:
- Pick one box size for most of your items
- Identify the items you need most access to and store them closer to the front
- Label each box with items contained inside
- Create a labeling system
- Create a master inventory list
- Plan the layout of the unit prior to placing items inside
- Create a map of your belongings inside and place it where it’s visible
As a business, certain items are going to be needed more than others. Organizing the unit according to accessibility ensures that those items you need more often will be near the door and those that are less frequently used are at the back, therefore out of the way. Taking care to create a detailed labeling system paired with an equally detailed inventory list and map of the unit guarantees that you won’t need to rummage through the unit to find the items you need quick access to for that day.
Industries That Commonly Use Commercial Storage
Most industries can benefit from a commercial storage facility. However, some industries are more inclined to take advantage of those benefits, including:
- Construction companies
- Contracting companies
- Auto/truck repair companies
- E-commerce businesses
- Home-based businesses
- Small businesses
- Interior design businesses
- Landscaping businesses
- Retail stores
- Pharmaceutical companies
- Medical supply businesses
Regardless of the industry or size of your business at CRS, we are proud to offer customizable services that can adjust to your business.
