Preparing Your Items For Storage
Right, we’ve reserved our small business storage unit and now it’s time to move in. 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 snipper in long term storage, make sure 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 might await you once you open up your storage unit after a particularly sweltering day — not to mention the new critters you will have as roommates! This also goes for canned food. Pests are determined little snackers and will find a way into these given if allowed the time, so it’s much easier to just not store 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 a ‘no’ from us on the living things.
What you can store in your small business storage unit is a list as big as your imagination. We also highly recommend organising your stock, tools and other business related items so your space works in the most efficient way. Think of shelving units, work benches, organisation boxes with labels, packing materials you might need so that you can ship your business items to your customers. You could also look into having your courier company pick up your wares so you don’t have to lug all your hard work to the post office first. With 24/7 access to your storage unit, your business hours are determined entirely by you!
