Do You Need Business Storage This Winter?

As a business owner, winter might be a slower time for your company, as people take time off for the holidays and to use up vacation days before the calendar year comes to an end. On the other hand, depending on your industry, winter might be your busiest time of year. You might need to hire more employees, even if it’s just for the season, so that you can keep up with your customers’ needs. You may also need to store some inventory that doesn’t fit in your stockroom due to a higher number of orders during the holidays. At EZ Storage® in Detroit, we can help you find the perfect business self-storage unit for the winter. Visit one of our metro-area locations today to learn more!

Making Space for Employees

If you’re going to be hiring more employees, then you’re going to need to make sure that they have a place to work. For retail establishments, you may need to clear out space at the customer service counter or another cashier stand. You’ll need more room for people to stand as they help customers, so if you’ve been using certain areas as storage, then you might need to move things out of the way.

It can also be beneficial to take a look at your employee break rooms. With more people working for you over the holidays, it’s a good idea to make sure the break rooms are organized and spacious enough for multiple employees to take their break at the same time.

Storing Important Inventory

If winter and the holidays are busy times for your company, then one of your biggest challenges might be storing important inventory. You might be getting an influx of products, and if you have a small storefront or office space, then storage can be hard to come by. With an affordable self-storage unit, you can keep your inventory safe until it’s ready to go on the shelves or to be shipped to customers.

We offer standard and climate-controlled spaces, so if you need to keep your products at a certain temperature or protected from humidity, then we can provide the ideal spot. This can be especially beneficial if you have fragile items such as ceramics or sensitive items such as electronics to store.

Monthly Storage Options

If business tends to slow down after winter, then you might not need a storage space for the spring. With our monthly rental options, you can store things for the time you need, and then take items back to your office or storefront. Once your seasonal employees are gone and all the orders have been shipped, you can take the time to rearrange your business and organize everything. If you decide that you want to keep some things in storage, then we’ll gladly help you find the best option for your budget.

At EZ Storage®, we’re committed to helping business owners find the perfect storage solutions. Visit one of our Detroit locations today to see what units are available!
