These calculators or estimators can be found on the majority of self storage web sites. Others will describe their commercial storage units in terms that will help you visualize how much space you need, some units could hold the contents of an average sized closet, some others are the size of a standard single garage, and there are also Portable Units. As an additional measure you can always visit a facility and look at potential unit sizes so that you can get a clearer idea of which one will suit your space needs.

Businesses today like to keep their overheads down and do not want to have to pay enormous fees for high rent office space above and beyond what they will use everyday. You will pay the same per square foot for storage space in an office building as you will for the office. Less expensive public commercial storage units are ideal for these businesses.

If you are fortunate to work in a rapidly growing company your business may need more storage space and commercial storage units are an excellent secure and cost effective option. You will be in possession of a key or access card and can control who has access to the space providing excellent security access for your items. Paper and computer records, infrequently used equipment and even office furniture can be stored in commercial storage units. Most storage companies offer climate controlled storage to protect items that can be sensitive to the environment[]

There are also cold storage facilities if you need to store business goods that need to be kept in a refrigerated environment, like wine. More and more storage companies are offering special storage units to keep your business’ wine inventory, in specially built storage units with climate controlled temperature, these kinds of units vary from location, in some cold climates they need to be temperature and humidity controlled, in some other dry places, a refrigerated environment is more appropriate.
