Businesses you can run from your storage unit

When it comes to storage units, there are a lot of misconceptions and misinformation on how you can use the space. What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of a storage room? You probably wouldn’t think of businesses you can run from your storage unit. Instead, you’d probably think of  a room filled with furniture and household items you don’t need. But there’s more than that to a storage unit.

Did you know that you can run a business from your storage unit?

Of course, you can run a business from your own house or from an office space, or even a warehouse. But problems come with these solutions. For example, a warehouse is too big for smaller businesses. Running a business from your house means you’re more likely to clutter your space. And an office is not a suitable solution for many businesses, due to the high rent and the lack of flexibility.

When you see an empty storage unit, it can be hard to imagine how to set up the space for your business needs. So, let’s give you some ideas.

Online Seller

If you have an online business on Etsy, Amazon, Ebay and more, a storage unit can be a great idea to store your stock and merchandise. Having such items at home means clutter, and let’s not forget that a lot of people want to keep their work and personal life separate. Examples of online sellers include handmade objects such as clothing, and arts and crafts like paintings.

YouTube Channel and other video businesses

If you publish content on YouTube or Vimeo, filming content in your house can be hard. This means that you need to ensure that your house has to be tidy. And not to mention the safety issues that come with this! Not everyone feels comfortable filming in their house and revealing where they live. Using a storage unit as your studio means that you have total freedom to decorate the space. It also means that you don’t have to worry about showing your house, and ensuring it always looks good for filming. In your storage unit, you can also keep cameras and filming equipment, freeing up some space at home.

Theatre and Dance company

Running a business in the entertainment industry can be hectic. Having a space to store costumes and clothing can be extremely helpful, and even more with all the props, cameras, lighting, and sound equipment and more. Storing these items in a storage room – or multiple storage rooms – also means total security and protection.

Other

Other businesses that can be run from a storage unit include decorations and props, event management, charity, retailers and more.
