Top 5 Items for Commercial Storage

When office clutter increases, so can workplace stress. Luckily, there is a simple solution for reducing some of the clutter and stress – off-site commercial storage. Not only does commercial storage give you peace of mind by keeping your assets safe and accessible, but it also keeps efficiency high in your workplace. Not sure which assets to move to storage? Consider these top five things.

Records and Files

Storing records and files on-site can clutter your office space pretty quickly, while also forcing your employees to work in discomfort and disorganization. A survey of hundreds of professionals by M-Files Corporation found that 38% reported that some of their organization’s paper records were lost or misplaced a few times every month, at least. In the same survey, respondents said they left around 58%  of paper documents that they received on desks or in file cabinets. By storing files or copies of your files off-site, your employees can stay more productive and workspace more organized because your precious files will be in a secure location, while still being easily accessible.

Office Equipment and Furniture

Moving, renovating or revamping an office may leave your company with an array of equipment and furniture that has no immediate use or place to be stored on-site. While you work to refresh to create the office of your dreams, you may need an off-site location to securely store office items that are no longer needed. No worries, though! Whenever you’re ready to retrieve your items, they will be waiting for you in pristine condition. Armstrong Relocation – Huntsville will even help you pack, move and install everything in your new office, making the process quick and stress-free. And if you ever have a need for those stored items, they’ll be right there to deliver them.

Additional Inventory

If you have overflow inventory, trying to store it all on-site can make your stockroom messy and inefficient. Instead, store your additional inventory in an off-site storage facility so you can save space in your primary locations until you and your customers are ready for the product. You can’t trust just anyone with your business inventory, so look for a commercial services company that has an unshakeable commitment to professional asset management. While someone else stores and protects your overflow inventory, you can focus on selling the products in front of you. It’s a win-win solution — you stay organized on-site with one less thing to worry about, and your customers receive better service, as a result.

Decentralized Office Assets

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, businesses increasingly transitioned to work-from-home environments. Now, some experts predict that working from home will be the new normal long after the pandemic slows down, resulting in a decreased demand for brick-and-mortar office spaces. A survey of hundreds of finance leaders by Gartner found that 74% of companies plan to permanently shift to a more remote-friendly work environment after the pandemic ends. If your company is ending your office lease to embrace a virtual environment, your next step will probably be to figure out what to do with all of your office materials and supplies. Storing your office supplies professionally will keep your materials organized and secure…without having to stock-pile supplies and equipment in employees’ homes.

Special Displays and Signage

Special displays and seasonal signage take up space. Whether you are preparing a special display for months before you release it for public viewing, or your company cycles through seasonal signage each year, most businesses do not have the space to store all of their special signage on-site. Turning to an off-site storage solution will keep your displays and signage safe without the added pressures of storage constraints. Your special display stays off-site so that you can use your on-site storage space for more time-sensitive projects.
