Three Reasons Your Business Needs a Storage Unit

Three Reasons Your Business Needs a Storage Unit

For many businesses, growth and expansion are top priorities, and with these goals come more. More revenue. More responsibilities. More employees. And, more stuff. But how can you reach the next level with a ton of clutter surrounding you? According to the Harvard Business Review, our workplace environment has a significant effect on cognition, emotions, behavior, decision-making and even our relationships with others. Our brains prefer order, so cluttered workspaces can increase stress and anxiety levels, and inhibit our ability to focus. In fact, workplace stress costs American companies up to $190 billion each year in healthcare costs.

Having some extra space to breathe, think and innovate will make a world of difference for your business. If you need storage for business purposes, MyPorter is the answer. We offer on-demand moving and storage services for businesses of any size with 24-hour security, we’ll pick up your items, keep an online inventory and will deliver the goods wherever you need them. Whether you’re a small business working out of your home with no room to store your documents or a large business with a huge amount of inventory or extra supplies with no place to keep it, we can help.

Still not convinced? Here are three signs your business needs to invest in a storage service:

  1. You’re having a difficult time keeping track of things in the office. If you are constantly losing things around the disorganized office or your messy desk, it is time to consider business storage. Whether it’s important documents or excess inventory, no one likes the feeling of not being able to find what they need, when they need it. Utilizing a business storage unit will help you stay organized without having to worry about where your items are. Store important business files, extra products or equipment that you don’t necessarily need every day with MyPorter. Our online inventory system will help you stay organized and know exactly where everything is.
  2. You need a temporary solution. If you are in the middle of renovating or relocating, or if your business has seasonal pieces of inventory or equipment such as trade show displays, outdoor furniture in the winter or holiday décor in the summer, a short-term business storage service is an ideal solution. Don’t worry about the hassle of storing or moving those bulky items when you aren’t using them. You’ll pay only for the space you need.
  3. You have large amounts of inventory. There is no need to rent expensive commercial warehouse space to store your inventory. We’ve got plenty of room at our Atlanta facility, and more importantly do all of the heavy lifting! You also won’t get locked into long-term, expensive contracts. Instead, save money and effort. You won’t have to worry about driving, packing, loading, unloading or unpacking. We’ll deliver exactly what you need back to you right when you need it.

If your workspace is suffering from clutter and you need somewhere to store the overflow, a storage service is a perfect option for your company. Grow your business on your terms. Don’t let the limitations of your office space hold you back.

Fall is the New Spring

Fall is the New Spring

It’s that time of year again; the leaves are falling, temperatures are cooling down and children are preparing for trick-or-treating. However, does your house look scary? Has your living room become a storage room? Is avoiding clutter on the floor part of your daily routine? If so, it might be time for some seasonal cleaning.

Despite the many distractions the fall has to offer, such as football, festivals, pumpkin patches and apple picking, it’s the perfect time to get organized before the winter holiday craze commences.

Need a little motivation to get started? Don’t worry – it’s not as spooky as it sounds. Here are some helpful tips:

Take note of what you have: The American Cleaning Institute has this on its list as the first tip, and we agree with its ranking. Knowing what you have is important so you can sort it all later on. Make an inventory list so you can easily keep track of what and how much of each item you own.

Group items into categories: It seems obvious, but this will help you out in the long run. For example, you don’t want to find art supplies in an electronics bin, unless you want your cables to have a fresh coat of paint. Use boxes, labels or anything else that will help you stay organized.

Make a checklist of tasks: Done with listing and sorting your items? Give it a check on your to-do list! Wait – another list? But why? This provides an extra boost that will help you keep going as you continue to get things done and prevent you from forgetting anything.

Clean the closet & garage: This is probably the most frightening task of all. However, by now, you’re an expert. Let’s face it, most of us just shove anything that will fit into the closet or garage to make sure the rest of the house stays clean. By using the three tips above, it’ll be easy to ensure that you can actually fit your car or clothes into these spaces.

Store summer-related items: Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the days of lounging on pool floats are over. It’s time to pack up the last hints of summer and embrace fall head-on. If the traditional storage spaces inside your house are at capacity, offsite storage is a great option for you.
