Most offices do not have extra space for storage. Instead of spending a lot more money by upgrading the size of your office space, rent a St. Albert self storage unit. Check out our guide on 6 signs your office space is too small.
When you have decided to rent a storage unit to help organize your business, simply throwing everything into your storage unit will not keep you organized. Create an inventory list for your storage unit and make sure to update it regularly.
With an inventory list, finding that important file or a piece of office equipment will be quick and easy so you do not spend all day in your storage unit looking for things.
The first pile should be for items that should stay in your office. This is anything that is used regularly or current files that are still being worked on.
The second pile is for anything that needs to be tossed. Any broken items or things that simply do not get any use anymore can either be tossed or donated.
The third pile is for everything that will be taken to your storage unit. Extra furniture, old files, extra inventory, etc., can all be placed in your storage unit.
Place larger and less used items on the bottom and at the back of the storage unit. Keep items that you will need frequent access to at the front of your storage unit.
Try to get boxes or totes that are all the same size for easier stacking and label everything.
When you are renting a storage unit, rent a storage unit that is a little bigger than you need. This way you can make an aisle down the middle of your unit to have easier access to all of your items. Storage units come in a variety of sizes and we can help you choose a storage unit for your business.
Most business records need to be kept for a long time. A self storage unit is perfect to store and organize all of your old business documents.
