Running a Business from a Self Storage Unit

Posted on 1st April 2022 by Lauren May

Over the last few years, there has been a shift in mindset favouring entrepreneurship and start-up enterprises. This is due to more options available, both for traditional smaller businesses and online ventures with fewer entry restrictions. One aspect that still acts as a roadblock for many people is the costs of rent and other running expenses. This leads to a rise in companies using alternative workspaces. A popular choice is self storage, but can you run a business from a storage unit?

Yes, it’s possible, but this depends on which storage provider you discuss your concept with, as some won’t accommodate it. Aussie currently works with several clients who operate from one of our self storage units. You’ll find the rates for storage are far cheaper than commercial rental costs, making it an attractive prospect. We’ll use this blog to look at some of the benefits of using self storage and some relevant information to do more research on.

If you’re struggling to find space in your home, it’s time to organise and make the most of the living spaces you could enjoy. To varying degrees, we all hold onto things when they’re no longer useful and then end up trying to shove them anywhere possible. Out of sight, out of mind. That’s because we live busy lives and have little spare time to keep on top of everything. Before we know it, clutter builds up, and we’re tip-toeing around boxes and containers.

A Guide on How to Get Your Full Rent Deposit Back
