Business-Storage-Needs-Abba-Self-RV-Storage-Concord-CA

There are many reasons business storage can come up this time of the year. This time of year many businesses are busy getting ready to file their end of year reports.  On top of that if your business is seasonal you may also be surrounded by inventory right now and wondering how you can keep it all organized and out on time.

November and December are great months to start carving out time to prepare and get organized for the following year. Business storage can help many businesses get through the year end and start a new year organized.

Business Storage Needs

If you are running out of space in your office there are things you may be able to store away to help you stay organized and uncluttered, these may include the following:

  • Boxes of Files
  • Filing Cabinets
  • Office Furniture
  • Inventory
  • Large Equipment
  • Work Vehicles
  • Seasonal Items
  • Seasonal Giving

The good news is you don’t have to spend a whole lot of cash obtaining the extra space you need.

Affordable Business Storage Solutions

If you are looking for business storage that is easily accessible yet also affordable, self-storage is one of the best solutions. From monthly rent prices to size, you can customize a storage solution to fit your needs and easily change that solution as your business grows.

Self storage gives you the flexibility that you won’t get when you are paying for commercial or office space. As the season’s change and your storage needs decrease or increase so can your storage options. If something goes wrong and you need the extra money you are putting into storage, you are not locked into a long-term contract. This can be important especially when you are running a small business.

Size and price are not the only options you have when it comes to self storage. If you need to protect documents, wood furnishing or other precious items you may want to look into a climate controlled unit. This gives you the ability to control the climate inside your storage unit, keeping items protected from warm and cold spells as well as humidity.

As you can see self storage is a great option for your business storage needs.

Is a Climate Controlled Storage Unit Right for You?

Putting items in storage does not mean you want to part with them, and it certainly doesn’t mean they don’t have value for you. The fact is often the items you put into storage are valuable in both money and memories. Many products are sensitive to the environment and all the changes that can occur with weather systems. These items need to be stored in a climate controlled storage facility. Depending on what you are planning to store, you may need to check if the facility you’re using can guarantee climate controlled units.

Is a Climate Controlled Storage Unit Right For You?

Climate controlled storage facilities are on the rise as more and more people are putting luxury items away. You need to know there is a difference between ‘temperature control’ and ‘climate control’, even though they are often mistakenly assumed to be the same. To know if a climate controlled storage unit is what you need, you need to understand what these units will provide.

Temperature and Humidity Controlled

The difference between temperature and climate control is humidity. In a facility that only offers temperature control, that is what they monitor – just changes in temperature. Climate controlled units monitor both the changing levels of temperatures and humidity. Humidity can ruin a lot of valuable items by causing mold to grow, warping, discoloration, and many other damages. These are some items particularly susceptible to humidity:

  • Leather
  • Wood
  • Appliances
  • Collectibles such as coins, stamps, wine and comics
  • Musical instruments
  • Artwork
  • Clothing
  • Documents
  • Photos
  • Electronics

When the humidity in the air increases, the air is able to retain heat, and the reverse occurs when humidity decreases – the air temperature will be lower.

Climate Control

climate controlled facility will use a quality HVAC system. They may also use dehumidifiers, thermostats that are customizable, and heavy-duty insulation. Dehumidifiers are ideal for managing humidity levels, and air conditioners are better for dropping temperatures quickly to get below the dew point.

Benefits of Climate Controlled Units

If you have items that are valuable, sensitive, or things you don’t want to be affected by climate change in your area, you should consider a facility which offers climate controlled units. These units will protect your property from damages humidity can cause and also protect it from dust, pests, and other factors.

Storage Solutions for Contractors

Storage Solutions for Contractors

Small contractors face challenges that large companies avoid, but even a large company will sometimes need temporary storage. You may not always have a dedicated building where tools and equipment can be stored, materials can be gathered, or that can be accessed by employees or subcontractors around the clock. These are a few of the many benefits a storage unit at Abba Self & RV Storage has to offer, in addition to a wide variety of indoor and outdoor storage options.

Out of Town Solutions

Contractors working on a project from out of town need a safe place to keep their tools and materials. A storage unit includes gated access, individual alarms and sprinkler systems, and the convenience of 24 hour access. Month-to-month storage rental allows you to pay only for the storage space and time you need, and makes it easy to pack up and move on when the project comes to an end.

Benefits for General Contractors

General contractors may need to store tools and equipment for a variety of work, from building a foundation to putting on the roof. The staff at a storage unit company can help you select the right size storage unit for your needs, and provide you with some insight on getting everything organized for easy access to everything when you need it. Outdoor, RV storage areas are available for temporary storage of heavy equipment, and units can accommodate a wide variety of tools and even a vehicle or two.

Storing Equipment and Supplies

On-the-go contractors who visit multiple job sites will appreciate the ability to stop by and swap out the tools or supplies they need between stops. For example, a cleaning service may need a floor buffer at the morning’s first job, and ladders with window cleaning supplies for the second. Having easy highway access to your storage unit means you don’t have to clutter your vehicle and carry everything around the entire day, and that can improve your company image while working on site.

Access for Subcontractors

Not all contractors work daytime hours. For companies that burn the midnight oil, a storage unit means your subcontractors and employees can get to tools and supplies around the clock without rousing the boss or making a long trip back to headquarters. Coded gate entry is an easy way to track who comes and goes will give you extra protection for your property as well as creating a documented record of who comes and goes.
