Is your side hustle taking up too much space in your apartment? Do you desperately need a NYC workspace to store your business inventory? You aren’t alone. Many businesses rely on self-storage units to house their inventory or supplies. Not sure if it would work for your business? Read on.

Businesses that can benefit from using self storage:

Realtors & Interior Designers

New York City realtors and interior designers have long used self-storage units to store staging furniture for their apartment listings. For realtors, self-storage units offer an easy solution in a city that lacks space and affordability. Realtors can store everything from yard signs to high-end staging furniture in self-storage units and avoid long-term leases and strict contracts associated with most rentals.

Brick & Mortar Retail Businesses

Retail businesses that have to manage a lot of inventory may struggle for space in Manhattan. Commercial retail space is expensive and keeping your sales floor fresh and inviting is high priority. Self-storage units can help retail shops by giving their inventory a home so the sales floor maintains an attractive uncluttered aesthetic.


Home Service Businesses

Home service businesses require storage space for tools, materials and equipment. Instead of storing tools and equipment in an apartment or office space, home service business owners can rent self-storage units for a lower price.

Examples of home service businesses that can use self-storage are:

  • Contractors

  • Plumbers

  • Woodworkers

  • Metalworkers

  • Jewelers
