Storage is a great resource for many needs. Business owners sometimes neglect to realise the value of self-storage units, however, so we’ve compiled the top pros and cons here. 

. Pro:

Many storage facilities offer 24-hour access, seven days a week. This means that business owners can have access to their belongings whenever necessary. Although this isn’t the case with every facility, it is offered at most. 

. Pro:

There are numerous sizes of units available, giving everyone the chance to find the perfect fit. Whether you need a small indoor space for file storage or a large garage-size unit for landscaping equipment and power machines, the sizes available will suit every need. 

. Pro:

Storage units can be rented for an unlimited amount of time and most require no long-term contracts. Whether you need storage for a month or a decade, you can stay as long as you’d like and never worry about being locked into any type of agreement or lease. 

. Pro:

You literally can store just about anything. Getting your business organised could mean any number of things, but the fact is that storage units offer so much versatility that they can deliver in every way. 

. Con:

Some storage facilities may not have the best security features in place. As a business owner, of course, it will be part of your due diligence to choose a reputable facility that has secure access, locked units, cameras, and other protective features. 

. Con:

You will have to go to the unit to get what you need. While most storage facilities are local and accessible, it’s still not right at your business so it takes an extra step. 

. Con:

You may have to pay a premium for climate-controlled units when you want to store documents or sensitive items. Again, every facility is different, but there are often different rates available based on the type and size of the unit that you choose. 

You can find an endless number of potential benefits and disadvantages of self-storage. Generally speaking, however, the pros far outweigh any cons for those trying to get their business organised and improve their day-to-day operations.
