The Benefits of Using a Storage Unit for Business Purposes
The cost of real estate in Vancouver is still high, causing businesses to re-evaluate their storage options within the city. One option gaining significant traction is renting a storage locker because of the benefits it provides businesses.
Storing Bulk Orders for Lower Costs
Ordering products in bulk from an overseas manufacturer is the best way to minimize product costs. The challenge that businesses face is storing extra inventory. And this is where the value of a storage locker is most apparent.
After receiving the order, businesses can easily store the extra inventory in a storage locker until it is ready to be delivered to the customer.
More Affordable Than New Real Estate
Industrial and office real estate are still pricey in Vancouver and require a significant upfront investment. Additionally, it can take months to find the property, negotiate the deal, finalize the sale, and have it ready for operations.
Instead, businesses are choosing to work with storage facilities because they offer quick access. After selecting the duration of your contract and signing the deal, you set your move-in date to whenever best suits you.
Extra Product Security
Perhaps the best benefit for businesses is the additional security services provided by storage facilities. Many offices and industrial areas are left unguarded at certain times of the day, month, or year, leaving them exposed to theft or vandalism.
Storage facilities solve this problem by providing 24/7 monitoring of the facility. Additionally, some locations have motion detectors, security guard patrols, alarms, and cameras. All these security features would cost businesses hundreds of dollars each month but are included in the low cost of a storage locker.
