Due to the pandemic, the last couple of years has allowed businesses to change how they operate. Gone are the days of punching in and out of a crowded office. Instead, the switch to remote working has gradually empowered offices to get rid of their large office space in exchange for a smaller location, or some have even become completely virtual. Warehouse storage is now being used as an effective way to keep your commercial products, equipment, and files safe.
The price of your business’s warehouse storage is essential, as you want to ensure that your business is not overspending. Similarly, you don’t want to find out you are spending too little and experience damage to your company’s important belongings. CRS Moving & Storage considers both sides, and our mom-and-pop approach to New York moving and storage reflects precisely that.
3 Factors to Consider When Gauging the Price of Your Business’s Warehouse Storage
When it comes to the price of your business’s warehouse storage, how do you know if you are paying a reasonable price? Every business owner has different needs, and a good storage company should be well-equipped to accommodate them. When you are looking for a local space to store your company’s office equipment and are trying to gauge whether or not you would be paying a reasonable price, it is vital to consider the following:
How Large Is Your Storage Space?
Perhaps this seems like a given, but the larger the space, the higher the price. A storage company representative may be able to work alongside you to help properly decide the size of the storage space you will need for your items.
If you are paying a lower price for a small but overstuffed room, you may want to consider expanding. A little more money spent monthly is likely going to be cheaper than the cost of repairs to damaged goods due to stacking or improperly stored items.
Is It Temperature Controlled?
New York winters can dip below freezing quite easily, and it is crucial to have your technologies and other equipment protected. An outside storage container with no temperature control may seem like an okay option when you see the bill, but at the end of the day, a temperature-controlled storage unit is recommended.
Also, when the summer rolls around and the humidity settles in thick, you and your business team will be glad you went with a climate-controlled storage unit where you can visit and do inventory.
Is Your Storage Being Monitored?
The price of your storage unit depends on size, but also other amenities, like a full-time staff and security. The more valuable your office items are, the more likely you will want a full-time security unit available at all times to take inventory and watch the building.
You are trusting your storage facility with expensive technology and invaluable company documents, and your payments should reflect that.
