Operating your business out of a storage unit may look completely different, especially when looking at short-term storage or long-term storage. Before deciding on whether self storage is the right way forward for your business, you will need to evaluate what you want to get out of it. Do you see this space becoming a warehouse for your stock? Will you be packaging your wares here to send off to your customers? Or, like Jessica, will you be working right out of your unit? It’s entirely up to you and your vision based on the future of your business!
A Few Tips On Storing Using StoreLocal Penrith’s Business Storage
There are a few things to know about what you can and can’t store in your self storage unit, which can be handy knowledge depending on the type of business you are running.
- Firstly, you cannot store any combustible items or toxic chemicals. This includes things such as gasoline or petrol, paint or paint thinner as well as any solvents. It is important for us to note here that if you are storing lawn mowers or whipper snippers for your business or home for long term storage that you ensure each item is completely empty of any petrol and cleaned appropriately.
- Secondly, no perishable items are able to be stored. Storage unit temperatures can fluctuate dramatically thanks to our fantastic Australian weather, so you can only imagine the horrors that would await you once you open up your storage unit after a particularly sweltering day. This also goes for canned food, pests are determined little snackers and will find a way into these if given enough time. Better to be safe than sorry, and avoid storing any food items in your storage unit.
- Thirdly, and it’s a big one, no living things are to be stored in your self storage unit. Whether you’re breeding animals or raising an army of peace lilies, it’s no from us on the living things.
The list of things you can store in your self storage unit is a long one! Especially with the world of e-commerce taking off the way it has in the last few years. We know that your business is as unique as you, which is why it’s so handy to have a storage unit that works for you.
