Let’s put out a slight disclaimer here: You can’t turn a self-storage unit into an office, and you can’t live in there. However, for small businesses that have a lot of inventory, a storage unit can provide a space to store things. Renting a storage facility lodi to store your inventory is a lot cheaper than buying a massive space you may never use.
If you are a content creator, it can be easy to put out a ton of product and then have to wait for it to sell, which could take longer than you would think. Being able to place your excess inventory into a storage unit and then bring it out when it is sold is a great way to manage and market your products.
Some storage units even are designed for content creators, where you can meet with the people buying your stuff and discuss business in a central room before bringing the content out. Other business models that can use a storage unit include A Fix it Job.
If your line of work includes the tagline ‘can fix anything’ then you need a unit to store and manage all of the things that people might want to be fixed, including all of the tools you will need. Having a dedicated place where all of your gear can safely be stored will help keep you organized and prevent tools from filling the house or getting lost in the garage.
If you are filming photos, videos, or working with sounds, a storage unit might also be a great filming and editing location. If you set up a backdrop and some good lighting, photos can be taken there as well with no trouble.
So while a storage unit can’t really become an office, it can be a great place to grow your business.
