Running a business can be a daunting task, especially when it comes to finding the right space to operate from. While traditional office space or storefronts can be expensive, there are a lot of alternative options that can be both cost-effective and convenient.
One such option is running a business from a storage unit. Here are a few of the businesses that could benefit from this option.
Online Retail Business
With the rise of e-commerce, running an online retail business has become a popular choice for entrepreneurs. A storage unit can serve as a cost-effective warehouse and distribution centre for your online store. You can store your inventory, pack and ship orders, and even set up a small office space within your unit.
Workshop or Studio
If you're a craftsman, artist or designer, a storage unit can serve as an affordable and convenient space for your workshop or studio. You can use the unit to store your materials and tools, set up your workbench and equipment and even display and sell your finished products.
Event Rental Business
A storage unit can be a great place for event rental businesses to store tables, chairs, linens and other equipment. You can set up a small office space within your unit to manage your bookings and orders, while also using the unit as a convenient loading and unloading area.
Landscaping or Handyman Services
If you run a landscaping or handyman service, a storage unit can be the perfect place to store your equipment and supplies. You can park your truck or trailer outside your unit, easily accessing your tools and equipment whenever you need them. You can also use the unit to store supplies like mulch, gravel or lumber.
Photography or Video Production Studio
A storage unit can be a great space to set up a photography or video production studio. You can use the unit to store your equipment and props, set up your backdrop and lighting and even use the unit as a small green screen or soundstage.
