Self-storage business benefits

4 Ways Ontario Businesses Can Benefit From a Self-Storage Unit

Did you know that being organized in the office can lead to significant improvements in productivity and better operational efficiencies? 

In fact, a NAPO survey found that 26 percent of people feel disorganized at work, and of those, 91 percent said they would be more effective and efficient if their workspace was better organized.

Being organized in the workplace saves time, eliminates stress, ensures your employees can locate what they need easily, declutters your office, empowers your team to meet deadlines and many other benefits.

Whether you are starting a new company or your small to medium-sized business in Ontario is growing, your company can realize a huge number of benefits by using a self-storage unit to declutter your office. 

Here are just a few examples of how a self-storage unit can help your Ontario business, no matter what industry you are in:

#1 – Keeping documents organized and secure

No matter how digitized your organization has become, all businesses accumulate a large amount of documents over time. It can often be challenging to find new locations to store this paperwork. This could be anything from lawyer papers, employee tax records, customer account information or candidate resumes – you don’t want to throw these out just in case you need them in the future.

A self-storage unit provides a secure and cost-effective way for your business to store, archive, manage and keep these confidential documents. When needed, you can simply take the documents you need from your self-storage unit and bring them into your office.

#2 – Cost savings for growing businesses 

Is your organization growing so rapidly that you have nowhere to sit new employees in your office? As a result, you may be considering moving to a new larger office with greater capacity – but this results in additional expenses.

Self storage will allow your small to medium-sized business store inventory easily and affordably, making room for new employees when you start to expand. Without having to commit to a long-term contract, the flexibility of using a self-storage unit allows your company to grow without having to move offices. This will ensure you don’t rush into the decision of renting a larger office before you are actually ready.

#3 – Stay organized during a move or renovation

If you have decided that your business is ready for a move or office renovation to meet growth, then a self-storage unit is a fantastic way to stay organized. You can use a self-storage unit to temporarily store items safely during the process.

#4 – Enhanced security of your assets

Leaving items in your office can leave them vulnerable to security threats and burglary attempts, particularly if your business isn’t investing in updated security technologies to protect your items. Losing items to theft could have massive implications for the bottom line of your business. 

In a self-storage unit, however, your items will be protected. Whether you want to store products in your inventory, technologies that aren’t currently being used or important documents, self-storage security will protect your business. Here at Calloway Storage, for example, our storage units are protected by fenced pin-code access along with 24-hour video security.
