Business Storage Units
Small businesses and large companies can benefit from having storage units. There is no such thing as too much storage space when you are catering to customers or clients. With all the items that come with running a business, having an additional storage unit or office space can elevate your company to another level. 700 Block Storage offers climate-control storage units of multiple sizes to fit your needs. Our Salt Lake City storage facility makes running a business easier by keeping clutter out of your office and increasing the security surrounding important documents.
Factors to Consider when Choosing Business Storage Units
Before you choose a storage unit, there are many factors that you need to consider when you will be using it for your business. Many storage units are simple boxes that hold items temporarily, however, some companies have additional accessories for your units or temperature control options that could change the price of your unit. Looking at different business storage units will help streamline your business practices.
700 Block Storage offers different means of accessibility to our units. All units are located no farther than 100 feet from an elevator. This makes hauling items into and out of your unit easy. We also provide large covered parking and drive-up units to help businesses store construction equipment and vehicles without hassle.
The security of a facility is important to protect your items and prevent money loss. Keeping your items locked up and under video surveillance is important to our company. Business owners should be able to have peace of mind about their supplies when storing them in a business storage unit. Our team can help you understand the security measures we take and what we can do to increase them if you feel necessary.
Costs and Benefits
Cost-benefit analysis is another factor that business owners should look at before renting a unit. Every storage company is unique, so shopping all of your options can help you get the most bang for your buck. If your business will not be able to operate efficiently out of a unit, it is not worth your money. Consider organization, rental costs, fees, and operational strategies.

Can You Run a Business Out of a Storage Unit?
Having a storage unit as your business’s home base is not possible, but it can be used to help you efficiently manage all tasks that come with running a business. Not only can you keep inventory in the storage unit, but you can also use it as a printing station or local pick-up location for orders. Storage units should only be used for smaller business needs, not the day-to-day operations or meetings with clients. Different-sized storage units or drive-up units can be used to store items you are not currently using without causing clutter to your main office building.
