5 Storage Hacks for Running a Small Business

Maximize Space with Vertical Adjustable Shelving

In a small business, every inch of space is valuable. That's why a vertical wall shelving system can be a great solution to make your business feel more open and organized while freeing up valuable floor space. Vertical storage optimizes visibility making it ideal for retail inventory, plumbing and building supplies, offices, and DIYers.

The adjustable shelving is designed to accommodate various-sized items and can change with your growing business's demands. If you’re still running out of space, you can use a shelving system in your storage unit to make accessing items easy and efficient.

Invest in Mobile Storage Solutions

For small businesses with limited square footage, flexibility is key. Investing in mobile storage solutions like rolling filing cabinets and slim ergonomic task chairs will go a long way in creating a more workable space. Portable furniture can be moved around the office, providing immediate access to necessary items and making it easy to change your workspace configuration.

Optimize Digital Storage for Paperless Operations

Businesses of every size can achieve cost savings by using digital storage solutions to reduce paperwork and eliminate the need for bulky filing cabinets. Cloud-based platforms offer secure and accessible storage for documents, invoices, and important business files. Implementing a robust digital storage system ensures that important information is at your fingertips and can significantly boost productivity and collaboration within your small business.

Utilize Underutilized Spaces

Compact storage solutions are excellent options for getting the most out of your office space. Take a closer look at neglected areas and transform them into storage solutions. For instance, modular storage bins come in various shapes and sizes that fit in awkward spaces like corners and under desks. Tapping into these overlooked areas will help keep your workspace uncluttered and maximize storage capacity.

What Type of Storage Does Your Business Need?

If you own a manufacturing company, a retail store, or an eCommerce business such as Etsy or eBay, the type of inventory you have will determine the storage unit features that will best meet your needs. For instance, temperature-sensitive items should be stored in a climate-controlled unit that offers protection against severe temperature swings.

Similarly, landscaping and contracting businesses will find loading and unloading bulky equipment easier with a drive-up storage unit, saving valuable time. With StorQuest, your storage solution is flexible and can expand and contract with your business needs.
