You finally made it. After years of trading your time to put money in someone else’s pocket, you struck out on your own and are making a living on your own terms as a small business owner. It’s not that you’re working less hours. In fact, it’s probably more. But, you have the satisfaction and security of realizing the fruits of your own labor.
Regardless of what your small business is, there’s a constant need for more space as you grow. More space for inventory, orders, work, the list goes on. Eventually, you come to the realization that your current physical surroundings aren’t enough to support the needs and demand of your business.
If this sounds like you, keep reading as we share our best solutions for getting more space for your business without breaking the bank.
When your regular workspace becomes cluttered and hard to move around in, it’s time to start looking at other options. Maybe you’ve perused commercial spaces to rent or even dedicated your own living space to help alleviate the clutter at the store or office.
Have you considered a storage unit though? For a fraction of the cost of renting a commercial space or warehouse, a storage unit provides ample room for inventory, additional workspace, or any other needs that clutter up your main operation.
When you rent a storage unit from Lucky Horseshoe, security is the last thing you’ll have to worry about. Not only is our facility under surveillance 24/7, we keep an active log of every person that checks in and out at our facility.
The safety of your possessions is our number one priority and we take all the necessary precautions to live up to that guarantee.
What Businesses is Self Storage Perfect For?
We could go on and on about this but let’s talk about some businesses that self storage is most beneficial for.
In the age of technology, and unfortunately Covid-19, the consumer experience is becoming more and more electronic. As a result, online retail businesses are on the rise.
Even though your online business might not require a physical office space, you’re going to need room to store inventory.
Storage units are a great solution that allows online retailers to store their goods, access them easily, and keep their workspace from becoming overcrowded.
Landscapers and Contractors
If you work with your hands, you inevitably have a lot of equipment. That’s especially true for someone like a landscaper in Central Oregon. In the summer, this individual is going to need storage space for mowers, hedgers, shovels, etc. In the winter however, those items are likely to be replaced by snow blowers and snow plow blades.
The same goes for handymen and contractors that need specialized tools for whatever projects they might be working on.
Storage units allow these people to keep all their tools organized in a common place. No more wondering where those pruning shears are or, where that table saw disappeared to.
Galleries and Artists
There’s no shortage of local artists and galleries in Central Oregon. As such, there’s the constant need to move pieces around for new showings and exhibitions.
Storage units make this often hectic process as easy as it can be. Not only do storage units make storing valuable pieces in a central spot a piece of cake, they provide the conditions necessary to maintain the work’s integrity through climate-controlled units.
Sales and Service Workers
People that work in sales usually have a litany of marketing and promotional materials they need to have ready access to.
If you spend a lot of time on the road covering vast territories, there’s nothing worse than trying to cram all the materials in the trunk of your car. Things get broken and can be forgotten all too easily.
Storing all your sales and promotional materials in a storage unit makes for easy organization. It also alleviates the stress of toting around all your materials from one city to the next.
If you work in a service like plumbing or electrical, it’s nearly impossible to fit all your tools into a van or truck. For that reason, storage units are the perfect solution to keep equipment organized and maximize workspace when you’re out in the field.
Commercial office space is hard to come by in Central Oregon and it’s expensive. Believe it or not, storage units make for great workspaces and cost a fraction of most commercial spaces.
At Lucky Horseshoe, we have units available that have electrical outlets and are climate-controlled allowing you to make your workspace pleasant and comfortable.
If you prefer to work out of a physical office, we’ve also partnered with a number of local businesses that offer commercial space at reasonable prices. Give us a call today to find out more about both these opportunities.
The modern workplace is changing at a rapid pace. The days of showing up at the office Monday through Friday are becoming few and far between. As a result, people are having to get more and creative about how and where they work.
Whether you’re an online retail company looking for space to keep inventory, a sales professional, or work in manual labor, storage units provide many versatile uses to help you stay organized while providing the very best in safety and security. If you have questions, our friendly staff are standing by and ready to help in any way they can.
