Self-storage is not just for homeowners and big corporate enterprises. Over the last few years it has become increasingly popular with small business owners and entrepreneurs who have found smart ways to use self-storage to grow their startups.
Below are a few reasons why self storage has become so popular with small business and great ideas on how it can help your own.
Office space comes at a premium, but storage companies tend to keep their prices very competitive. New business owners find that they can save on overhead costs by renting a storage unit instead of a large office space or warehouse.
This solution is perfect if you’re working out of a tiny office (or from home) and need extra space to store products, equipment, stock, files or anything else your growing business needs.

It’s also very popular with businesses which have moved online and no longer need big showroom spaces, or those that simply don’t need to be part of a massive office block.
Many self-storage companies offer spaces which can easily be converted into a comfortable office space. This video offers some great ideas.
