Some Ideas For Using Storage Units
There are several people who feel discourage when considering storage units. For some, this discouragement for storage units have originated from being a symbol of difficulties or stress as they are used when someone left behind all of their belongings or someone has died. But in reality, there are so many ways than one on how these units can be used optimally and below, I have cited some examples.
Number 1. Host a garage sale – so long as it’s not against the regulations and rules of the company, you can use your unit to host garage sale. The reason why many of these items are in the storage is due to the fact that you don’t want to or can’t use them. With this being said, why don’t you try selling them instead and make money from it? By hosting the sale right in the storage unit, this just indicates that you do not have to haul everything off the site and bring back all unsold items. You may now do everything in only one location. If the building proprietor allows you to do so, then a garage sale could be a nice way of making the unit to pay for itself.
Number 2. Keep inventory for small businesses – if you ever thought of running a business, then these storage units are very useful to keep you inventory in a secure, climate controlled and safe location. If you are using the unit to store products, then you can access what you need when you have to ship to your clients or restock. Actually, it is also possible to set up a shipping station in the unit, which lets you to perform all packaging in one location and directly head to local shipping service.
Number 3. Hold a class or workshop – for holding meetings, class or workshops, these climate controlled units can be an excellent option. For those who are living in small spaces similar to studio apartments or with large families, this said option can be very helpful. In some instances, it isn’t always possible to host book club meeting in your home and instead, you could just give everyone a chair and refreshments to your storage space and host your meeting there. Yes it is true that it isn’t that common to use storage unit for this but it is undoubtedly creative.
Think of renting such unit if you ever need additional space for whatever reason. These units can alleviate all issues you have and what’s more, can be a cost effective substitute instead if renting big social space and offer lots of interesting options for inventory maintenance, periodic meeting or workshop or even garage sales.
