Commercially, a self-storage facility provides companies with a place to securely store their goods while freeing them from the financial burden of company-owned warehouses. By using these commercial storage facilities, companies are free from employee salaries, benefits, utilities, and real estate taxes that accompany ownership of a warehouse. Depending on the items to be stored, your company's needs will vary. Be aware of any special storage considerations that will have to be taken into account. For example, your property may need to be stored in a climate-controlled or fire protected facility. As an additional consideration, the location and access capabilities of a storage facility should be compatible with the company's needs. For example, if your company is seeking national distribution capabilities, check to determine access to highways and major airports. For more information about commercial storage, contact a storage facility in your area.
