If you specialize in seasonal goods or services, you might know the feeling of going out to the family garage and dusting off one of the cardboard boxes that line the walls. The magic marker label is wearing off and they’re stacked three or four boxes high, covered in dust and debris. The long winter or summer has possibly damaged your seasonal products after months of sitting. How you store your goods for the in-between months can lead to costly damage and ultimately, setbacks to your business.
If you’re tired of the garage or the spare room being taken over by your business supplies, it may be time to put your seasonal items in a storage facility. CRS Moving & Storage has different size options for commercial storage, where you will no longer have to worry about your business during the off months.
Operate a Seasonal Business? 3 Reasons to Invest In Commercial Storage
If you are about to resume your seasonal business for the first time this year, you may want to invest in a partnership with a local commercial storage company for the following three reasons:
Protects Your Goods
Your garage is probably not temperature controlled, and it is likely your seasonal goods will not withstand a steamy New York summer without some damage. A storage unit is protected from the climate, so your items remain unwarped or undamaged no matter the weather outside.
Additionally, after working with a professional storage specialist, you won’t have to worry about your boxes or items toppling over and breaking. Gone are the days of your dog knocking over your supplies or your child climbing over your boxes just to have them collapse. A commercial storage unit can assist in properly stacking and storing your items so they are safe and ready for when you open for business again.
Helps With Organization
A good storage company will provide inventory services that will help take a load off your shoulders. This will allow you to easily notice defunct or broken merchandise, which can save you time and money.
Similarly, as you begin to ship off your merchandise, filing cabinets may be moved in, where you can keep track of records and sales. On-site security, as well as the active monitoring of inventory, can help you feel organized and at ease.
Can Multipurpose as an Office Space
When you are in the hustle and bustle of selling and distributing your seasonal business’s goods, you will need a place to operate. In a pinch, your home may do the trick, but it’s easier to manage when you are around your items and can actively monitor inventory.
A storage unit can act as a temporary office space for you to do just that. 24/7 visitation access allows you to go whenever works for you, and the climate-controlled units make for a comfortable spot. At CRS Moving & Storage, you can simply bring your laptop, connect to the wifi, and get to work, with all of your important documents and goods right there.
