  1. Store Excess Inventory and Product

    You want to keep enough inventory on hand to meet your customer’s needs, but you also need to have a good place to store all of it. Eventually, you’ll run out of space in the back closet and need more storage capacity. Rather than leasing a large warehouse or keeping things in the back of your office, you can use storage units in Riverbend to house your extra inventory.

    • Store Business Items

      Bluebird strongly believes that temperature regulation is essential to protecting your items, including inventory that may require a little extra attention. Our temperature--controlled storage units in South Foothills offer the protection of a heated enivronment. Your inventory can be kept in pristine condition, so they’re ready to be received by your customers.

  1. Store Bulky or Seasonal Supplies

    Depending on your type of business, you may have supplies you only need for certain seasons or large, bulky equipment that you take to different locations. Storing them in self storage in Southeast Calgary is a great way to free up space and keep equipment safely out of the way until it’s needed. 

    • Only Keep What You Need

      You don’t really need tents and patio furniture in the middle of winter, and if you have equipment such as power tools or landscaping supplies for your business, self storage in Calgary is a great way to keep it out of the way. You only need to worry about keeping the supplies you’ll need on hand, and everything else is in one convenient location whenever you need it. 

    • Pick the Size That Fits It All

      You want a storage unit that will hold everything you plan to store. Bluebird offers a variety of standard small, medium, and large units for you to choose from. The smallest storage units in Riverbend can fit small seasonal supplies like signs and decorations, while the largest can fit various kinds of lawn equipment with some walking room to spare. 

  1. Expand Your Office Space

    As your business grows, you’ll need extra space to work in, but you may not be ready to upgrade to a bigger office just yet. Renting the right storage units in South Foothills can add new office space for excess items. 

    • More Office Space 

      Bluebird Self Storage in Southeast Calgary not only has storage units to store your things and free up space but also provides a ready-to-use boardroom that can be reserved by tenants for important meetings. Our Calgary storage facility also offers rentable office space, allowing companies to conduct business without the need for a dedicated office of their own.

  1. Organize Files

    It can be difficult trying to stay organized if you have files scattered across desks and spread across different file cabinets. Thankfully, self storage in Southeast Calgary can be a perfect solution for keeping important files organized and easily found. 

    • Easy to Access When Needed

      While it may be best to keep a few key files handy in the office, you still want all your files to be readily accessible whenever needed. Bluebird’s drive-up storage units in South Foothills are easily accessed from outside without having to spend time navigating hallways and corridors to reach your unit. Just drive up, open the exterior rolling door, and grab what you need. Then simply close the door and be on your way.

    • Safe in a Secure Location

      There are many things that a small business may want to store, such as documents or old computers. Our high-tech facilities feature 24/7 surveillance to closely monitor each storage unit. 

  1. Keep Your Office Space Presentable

    You want to keep your client-facing spaces neat and professional, which can be hard if they’re full of boxes and scattered supplies. You want them to know you are reliable and can be trusted to handle their business. After all, reputation is the most critical part of any small business, and making a good impression with your office is a great way to build an excellent reputation. Self storage in Calgary can help keep your office space presentable. 

    • Reduce Clutter and Stay Organized

      Self storage in Southeast Calgary gives you a place outside the office to keep excess inventory, supplies, and other items you don’t need out of the way. This extra storage capacity ensures that your client-facing areas are free from clutter. It also means you don’t need to sacrifice your precious workspace in the back to keep the front organized.

  1. Make Inventory Management Easier

    Running back and forth trying to find out which closet has what inventory items can be time-consuming and stressful, especially when ordering new stock and trying to fulfill orders. However, proper inventory management is key to a successful business in many cases, which is where self storage units in Riverbend can help.

    • Inventory All in One Place

      Self storage in Southeast Calgary keeps all your inventory in one convenient location and lets you organize it logically. You can choose the perfect size to give you enough room for all your inventory as well as storage space to work around it. 

    • Understand Your Business’s Needs

      You need to have stock available to fill your clients’ orders. However, you don’t want to carry things that don’t sell well. Seeing all your inventory at once can help you make wiser decisions about what to stock and sell.
