3 Ways Your Business Can Benefit from a Storage Unit

3 Ways Your Business Can Benefit from a Storage Unit

By John Doe

Toronto is giving places like San Francisco and Silicon Valley a run for their money as an attractive environment for startups and new businesses. If you're starting a new business, or your company is growing or planning to move, a storage unit may be exactly what you need. That's because a storage unit gives you the extra flexibility to make smart business decisions. Here are three ways your business can benefit from having a storage unit.

Space for Extra Inventory

Don't waste money renting expensive office or warehouse space just to store your inventory. If you periodically have an influx of stock, a storage unit is a perfect place to keep it until you need it. Check your storage company's guidelines to learn what types of items are safe to store, and what kind of storage insurance you might need. Then, set up your storage unit with shelves or tables to make smart use of your space.

Whenever you find yourself with extra equipment, consider a storage unit for safekeeping. Things like computers and electronic equipment, office furniture, and tools of the trade can all be kept in a storage unit when not needed. Just be sure not to store gasoline-powered equipment since the volatile fumes can be dangerous.


Rent a Storage Unit for Your Next Move

Moving into a new location isn't always a smooth process. That's why it can be handy to have a storage unit while your move takes place. Store your old office equipment and supplies as you get ready to move. Or, store deliveries of new furniture or equipment while you get the new office ready. With a storage unit, you have greater control over your business and your possessions.

Think of your storage unit as an extension of your business. You can store your items securely, access them anytime, and take advantage of flexible space choices. Contact us today if you're ready to explore Toronto-area storage options for your company or small business.

Frequently Asked Self Storage Questions

What size storage unit is right for me?

Finding the right storage unit depends on the number of possessions you plan on storing at our facility. The more items you have, the more space you’ll need. At every Bluebird facility, we offer units ranging from below 5’ x 5’ to 10’ x 30’ or even larger, so you can find the right amount of storage space.

Can I buy boxes and packing supplies at Bluebird?

Yes! If you’re about to move into a storage unit, our facility offers moving and storage supplies that help protect your belongings. Our supplies range from boxes, packing tape, mattress and furniture covers, and so much more!

How long can I rent a unit?

We don’t have any long-term agreements at Bluebird, so you can rent your unit for as little as a month or two or upwards of a year if you’d like! If circumstances change, we can always extend or shorten your storage stay with us.

How do I access my storage unit?

You, selected family, and any business associates can access your local facility by using our secure keypad entry using a personal security code. Individual units are protected by a lock that is only accessible by the customer. Only contacts you authorize will be able to access your unit.

Typical daily access hours are from 6AM - 11PM, so you can always access your stuff when you need it. Check with the location nearest you for more information about access hours.
