Home Business Solutions: Using A Storage Unit As A Mini Warehouse

Posted on

For millions of Americans, running a small home business is no longer a dream, but a reality. For many of these entrepreneurs the biggest challenge they face is where to store their inventory. Even a large single family home can become overcrowded, and people who are working from apartments may not have an attic, basement or garage to use. Luckily, an affordable solution is available. Self-storage provides an easy and accessible way to manage inventory without having it take over a home.

Self-storage companies are plentiful today, so finding one that is close to home or the area where the majority of the business is conducted, should be simple. However, it is important to find the right facility that will meet the needs of the company. There are some basic requirements to consider.

Unlike warehouse space or office rentals, storage units (such as those offered by Nine Mile Self Storage) are usually available on a month-to-month basis. This makes it much easier for businesses that are only operated during a few months of the year or are concerned about the commitment of signing a lengthy lease. Storage units eliminate the clutter at home and make it possible for people to have the space they need to take advantage of sales and bargain prices on their inventory when it becomes available.
