Has your home become cluttered with items that you sell to make an income? You can solve the clutter problem by investing in a self-storage unit rental to store your inventory. Find out below how a self-storage unit can be helpful when you are in the business of selling items from home as well as what the rental will cost.
Why Should a Home Business Owner Rent a Self-Storage Unit?
When you have a home that is full of clutter, it can attract mice and take up a large portion of space. Renting a storage unit for your business inventory will give you the opportunity to reserve your home for personal items. You can keep the inventory organized in the storage unit and retrieve items out of it as they are sold. Self-storage units come in a variety of different sizes, so you should find one that is sufficient for the items that you have and any items that are purchased in the future.
A storage unit is also a great way to keep your items in a good condition. You can rent a unit that is climate controlled that will allow you to store items in an environment that is not too hot or cold. A climate controlled unit can be helpful for items that are constructed out of wood, leather, and metal, as you won't have to worry about moisture causing damage.
Will Business Inventory Be Secure Inside of a Self-Storage Unit?
You can count on your inventory being safe inside of a storage unit because you can put your own lock on the door. There are also security measures in place that can include gated access, security guards, and bight lighting around the facility. The amount of security will depend on where the unit is rented.
You may also be able to purchase insurance through the storage unit rental company for more security. If insurance is not available through the rental company, there are third-party companies that you can get coverage from.
What Does a Self-Storage Unit Cost to Rent?
The size and type of the unit you rent will determine how much it costs. If you want a climate-controlled unit, expect to pay $115-plus for a unit that is 10x15 feet and more if larger. You don't want to rent a unit that is not large enough for your inventory, but there are 5x5 foot units (but no climate control at this size) available for an average of $40-plus per month.
