Features to Consider for Business Storage

Drive-Up Storage

For businesses storing parts and materials or equipment, pulling your vehicle directly up to the storage unit to load and unload will be a major convenience.

Climate-Controlled Storage

If you're storing anything sensitive or want protection from extreme temperature changes, climate-controlled storage will help to make sure your products or materials stay in great condition while in storage.

Access Hours

Accessing your items when you need them is a must. Extended access hours from 6am to 10pm are common at our storage facilities and 24-hour access is available at some locations.

How Businesses are Using Storage Units

Retail Storage

Retailers utilize our storage units to expand capacity for inventory, seasonal point-of-sale displays, and for renovations in their showrooms.

With small business booming again, retailers are finding our service to be a great solution for expanding crowded stock rooms and avoiding moving their business to larger accommodations.

Many retailers use storage units for short-term surges in the inventory they need for peak shopping seasons. Our rentals are month-to-month, making it easy for retailers to come and go as the season demands.

Climate-controlled units are preferred to keep inventory and packaging in like-new condition.

Most Common Storage Units for Retail Business Customers

  • 10x20 storage unit (200 square feet to 249 square feet)

  • Climate controlled

  • Premium location for ease of loading and unloading

  • Month-to-month rental term

E-Commerce Storage

E-Commerce retailers turn to storage units as a low-cost inventory storage solution for seasonal demand or to locate inventory in proximity to distribution centers.

Online retailers are faced with greater demands to deliver products direct to consumers as fast as possible, and storage units offer an inexpensive way to hold inventory and take bigger shipments than they may be able to receive at home or in small retail locations.

Retailers that use distribution centers can be challenged with the high cost of storage in those facilities. Our customers stage the inventory in our storage units, moving inventory to the distributor when needed and avoiding the premium for storing it in the distribution facilities.

Most Common Storage Units for E-commerce Business Customers

  • 10x20 storage unit (200 square feet to 249 square feet)

  • Climate controlled

  • Premium location for ease of loading and unloading

  • Month-to-month rental term

Home Services

Home Service business owners view our storage facilities as a cost-effective way to store critical equipment, parts, or vehicles their businesses use every day.

Our most common business customers are contractors and owners of home service businesses like HVAC and landscaping companies. Challenged with handling bulky equipment and parts they need to service customers, a storage unit or parking space for vehicles and trailers allows them to avoid the need for costly commercial real estate.

Many of our customers utilize the security of our parking areas to store vehicles and trailers overnight. With individual or shared access codes to enter the grounds, their teams pick up their vehicles early and return them after the day's work.

Most Common Storage Units for Home Services Business Customers

  • Parking space (20 feet to 40 feet long), or 10x30 storage unit

  • Daily access 6am to 10pm, or 24-hour access

  • Multiple access codes for staff

  • Month-to-month rental term

Pharmaceutical & Medical Device Storage

Sales reps for medical products use storage units as a more cost-effective solution for storing their inventory.

With today's pharmaceutical and medical device sales teams operating from home more and more, reps are finding our storage units an attractive solution for storing inventory. Rates for storing inventory in a climate-controlled storage unit are more cost-effective than the flex office space commonly used in the past. Regulations for certain products might prohibit home storage, or they simply don't have enough space at home.

Life Storage offers temperature-regulated storage environments to meet product regulations. And for peace of mind, our facilities offer security measures like surveillance systems and access controls. Each storage unit is secured with a lock that only the rep may open.

Most Common Storage Units for Storing Pharmaceutical & Medical Devices

  • 5x10 storage unit (50 square feet to 75 square feet)

  • Climate controlled

  • Premium location for ease of loading and unloading

  • Month-to-month rental term

Realtors and Home Staging Professionals

Real Estate professionals have come to understand that a decluttered home is easier to sell, and a storage unit is a great way to temporarily relocate the homeowner's belongings.

Realtors and Home Staging professionals need to make the homes they are commissioned to sell the most attractive properties they can be. By removing some of the personal belongings of the seller into storage, buyers find the properties more open and easier to imagine with their own belongings inside.

Likewise, empty homes have an impersonal feel. With a few pieces of common furniture, an empty home becomes more attractive to buyers. Real estate professionals typically use storage units to hold staging furniture between projects.

Most Common Storage Units for Realtors

  • 10x20 Storage Unit (200 square feet to 249 square feet)

  • Drive-up access

  • Premium location for ease of loading and unloading

  • Month-to-month rental term

Business Files and Records

If regulations require retention of records and files in your business, our storage units are a cost-effective way to expand your file room.

We provide file storage for many types of business professionals including tax services and medical offices, to help reduce the amount of space needed for storage in the office.

Climate-controlled units are recommended for long-term storage of paper and cardboard, reducing the deterioration of the files over time.

If organization is important to your business' file system, our teams have good resources to recommend shelving, labeling products, and strong boxes designed for long-term storage.

Most Common Storage Units for Files and Records Storage

  • 10x20 storage unit (200 square feet to 249 square feet)

  • Climate controlled

  • Premium location for ease of loading and unloading

  • Month-to-month rental term

Service Parts

If your business is dependent on the availability of specialty inventory or parts to serve customers, strategically-placed storage units can greatly improve response time for service calls.

Repair and service businesses are a growing segment of Life Storage customers, faced with demands for repairing their clients' equipment within an agreed or expected time frame. Supply chain delays challenge their ability to order and receive parts just in time for their service calls.

Staging a supply of critical parts is making our customers more successful. Some have gone to the extent of staging service parts in a unit at several of our facilities around a large urban area, decreasing the amount of time needed to retrieve them and make service calls.

Most Common Storage Units for Storing Service Parts

  • 10x10 storage unit (100 square feet to 149 square feet)

  • Drive-up access

  • Premium location for ease of loading and unloading

  • Month-to-month rental term
