Storage solutions are becoming increasingly popular for small businesses to meet their needs. There are many reasons that storage is a valuable asset to any business and it presents a unique opportunity for businesses to save money and efficiently run their operations.

Storage keeps your items safe and secure.

Placing items in storage is cheaper than renting a bigger office space.
Commercial property is expensive to rent or buy in the city of Calgary. Sure, we have a lot of vacancies, but many small businesses cannot sustain the cost of a larger space without significantly dipping into their profit margins. Storage solutions are the simplest and most affordable way to create more physical space for your business without the high price tag.
The cost of storage is tax deductible.
Every small business needs to maximize their tax deductions to save when it comes time to pay the government. Putting items in storage with a low monthly fee is an easy expense to cover monthly, and it’s a legitimate business expense when tax time rolls around. Both you and your accountant will be delighted!
You can buy in bulk and save.
If you are a business owner with a product-based business, the opportunity has likely come up to buy items in bulk to save money and maximize your profits. It can be hard to take advantage of a bulk discount when you don’t have the space to store the items you buy. Finding an affordable storage solution to house the items you buy in bulk is ideal for the growth of your business. Not only are you able to save money on the cost of your products while increasing your profits, you don’t need to worry about a hefty price tag for a bigger space.
You’re protected should disaster strike.
We truly hope this is never an issue for your business, however, disasters can happen.
