Find out what you can do with a Self-Storage Unit for your Self-Made Business!

Have you thought about running your own business and becoming a business man or business woman? 


Have you thought about running your own business and becoming a business man or business woman?  Or perhaps you’ve already started your business and you’re using your living room or garage as your office space and product storage. With that said if you begin to notice paperwork spread out all over your living room and your business products taking up the entire garage space, then it may be time to invest in a more professional space. However, we understand that “professional space” is expensive and requires a lot of paperwork before you get the approval. This is why we propose that before you make that big investment renting out an office space or warehouse that you look into a self-storage facility. Rather than investing hundreds or even thousands of dollars a month on an office space, you could invest a hundred dollars or less on a storage unit. The storage unit approach will be highly cost effective, meaning it’ll be an affordable alternative to store your business products or equipment and clear up space in your home. This will not only be a step forward in your business but also a step to tidying up your home. Here are just a few examples of what you can potentially do with your Self-Storage Unit.

1) Online Product Business – One of the most sought after self-proclaimed businesses are the online product business which entails scalping or flipping products from major sites such as eBay and Amazon. If you are someone with a hunger to make a few bucks then this business idea is for you. Generally what you would do is find products on auction sites such as eBay or sites such as Amazon that are selling specific products at a cheap price and then reselling them to make a profit. Typically, this process of scalping takes a lot of time. When you find a good product for a cheap price, you generally would buy it and store it until you find either the right buyer or wait until demand increases. In order to find the right seller and right buyer, time must be spent storing and keeping the product in good condition. In other words, this is the time when countless living rooms and garages are sacrificed for a means of storage space. Fortunately, we have a solution! A self-storage unit can help you store multiple items until they are ready to be sold.

2) Business Equipment/Inventory Storage – For many small locally owned businesses, there are a lot of inventory and equipment that are highly important to a business but lack the space to store. Some examples include local restaurants that just don’t have the space store extra chairs, tables or even cleaning supplies in the event that a chair or table breaks. Having extra chairs in case of an emergency breakdown is a perfect example of a well-prepared business that’s ready to withstand unforeseen trouble. Rather than spending a time and effort to reorder a new chair, you can have it stored in a self-storage until it’s time to use. Depending on the type of business, there’s always something that needs to be temporarily stored.

3) Film or Video Producer – Aspiring to become the next big movie producer? Or looking to produce short films to upload onto Youtube to rack in Ad revenue? If you’ve answered yes to either question then this may help you! A storage unit is built in a way where it has the potential to turn into a makeshift video studio. Most storage units have a large enough space to shoot videos. Interesting enough you can also change the layout of the storage unit as many times as you like to ensure you get the best angles! Customize the interior of your storage unit for a more dynamic video feel. With that all said and done, another reason why a self-storage unit is great for aspiring video producers is that the equipment is typically huge in size and quantity. As a video producer is only nature to have multiple cameras with multiple lenses on hand. Aside from cameras, video producers have large equipment such as extended microphones, huge lighting lamps, light reflectors and many more. Now keep in mind, the equipment are fairly large and can take up a lot of space. Rather than taking up your entire living room or garage with your equipment, you can store them in a climate controlled storage unit.

1. Choose One Specific Box Size (if possible) – Having same sized boxes will definitely help make your planning process a whole lot easier. You’ll have a clearer estimation of where the boxes should go and how many boxes should be allocated to one side of the self-storage unit or the other. Additionally if you’re into detailed planning, you may go as far as measure the width, height and dimensions of the box for an even clearer plan of action. To make matters even easier and more flexible when you’re stacking, you may look into boxes that are interchangeable. For instance, using two small boxes that equal the size of one large size box. This is helpful and beneficial for you because you may want to store specific items in a box that you wouldn’t normally store in another.

2. Identify & Prioritize The Items You May Need – Let’s be honest here, there are certain items that you use regularly and items that you do not use regularly. The trick is to store the items you do not use regularly on the lower boxes. The idea of this tip is to have your most regularly used items on top of the storage for easier accessibility. One note to mention is to give extra thought to seasonal items such as Christmas lights, Halloween costumes, Thanksgiving decorations and etc. You may also consider separating the self-storage unit in half with one side having seasonal and frequently used items such as tents, sleeping bags, sleds and etc.

3. Label Each Box You Pack – This is where true organization comes into play. Labeling each box on the top and the sides of the box will help keep you sane when it comes time to dig through your belongings. There are several methods of organization when it comes to labeling your boxes. You can color code each box with a specific color to represent a specific group of items or use numbers to distinguish the boxes from one another. Perhaps even a combination of both color and number.

4. Create The Master List – Some people may refer to the master list as the holy bible of their self-storage unit. The reference is by all means nothing short of excellence. So once you are completed with your desired method of labeling, a master list should be created. This master list will be your ticket to maintaining your sanity. The master list will come in handy when you need to locate a specific item, especially if some of your boxes are completely out of view. With technology becoming more advanced by the second, you can save yourself the trouble of hand-writing the entire list of the self-storage unit. Instead you can opt to using Microsoft Word or another digital recording application to write down your specifics. With all that said and done, if you’re a detailed planner and you want to be extra. We recommend writing down the corresponding box color/number with a list of the items that the box contains as well as the location of the box in the self-storage unit. This is of course, one hundred percent optional.

5. Place A Map Of Your Belongings Inside The Self-Storage Unit – Drum roll please! The last step to an organized self-storage unit is a map. That’s right! A Map! A simple friendly reminder of the interior layout of your self-storage unit is the final tip in becoming a pro. Typically, the average person that visits their self-storage unit ranges between a few weeks to a few months depending what is stored in the facilities. We sometimes tend to be forgetful at times and as a safety measure, a map can help alleviate time spend digging through your belongings.

Moving can be hard work so you want to make sure to stock up on healthy snacks and beverages. During the summer when the heat can reach unbearable temperatures, you might want to make sure that when you’re doing heavy lifting that you keep your body cool and nourished. Whether you are moving in and out of Storage Lion’s self-storage unit, or moving in and out of a truck, these tips will help keep you strong through the job.

1. Keep water accessible to hydrate — If you are moving into or out of your self storage unit, make sure to have water bottles in a cooler ready to go. Don’t forget to drink your water often between trips of moving your items from the car or to the car, especially if the sun is coming down on you. If you are moving belongings to your new home from your old home, make sure to have water bottles at both your new home and old home so dehydration won’t be an issue. This is one of the most forgotten items when arriving at the new home: handy water bottles for when you are unpacking your truck for the first time. Having a case handy will keep you and your family hydrated when unpacking the truck.

2.Drink sports drinks with electrolytes, avoid sodas!— In the times when you are doing extraneous heavy lifting, whether it is moving large appliances in and out of Storage Lion’s self-storage facilities or in and out of your moving truck, you might want to have your sports drinks handy to replenish yourself after breaking out with sweat. The electrolytes found in sports drinks such as Gatorade and Powerade can help replenish your body’s energy to endure longer heavy lifting sessions to and from your home or self-storage unit. Remember to avoid sodas at all cost! The sugar in sodas will dehydrate the body leaving you depleted of energy and ultimately lead to a sugar crash. With that said, stick to water and the sports drinks during heavy moving days.

3. Re-energize with healthy snacks—Moving is extremely stressful and sometimes we forget to eat during stressful times. It’s important to energize your body during a move, especially when lifting heavy boxes or moving large appliances. Take constant breaks to re-energize yourself and what better way to rejuvenate your energy than with healthy snacks, such as nuts and energy bars. Readily accessible prepackaged healthy snacks such as nut packages and energy bars are perfect for a quick snacking-energy-restoring treat, especially when you are on the go to and from your home or self-storage unit.

4. Healthy meals on-the-go to keep your energy flowing —Don’t forget to eat your meals! Snacking is great to hold you over but it’s essential to eat healthy meals to keep your body in top-performance shape for all the packing and lifting that moving requires. Avoid fast-food restaurants that have little-to-none nutrition value and instead opt for prepackaged salads with chicken and other healthy alternatives such as sandwiches from the local deli. Whole foods such as whole grains and white-meats will help keep you nourished and won’t give you the carbohydrate crashes that fast foods give. You can always purchase sandwiches from a deli the day before or on the morning of the move and keep the sandwiches in a cooler when moving. That way, you can eat during a break when unpacking your items into Storage Lions’ self-storage unit or your new home.

5. Fresh juices for added nourishment to keep you moving—Juices are one of the healthiest options for maximizing your nutritional value to help keep your blood sugar levels up throughout the day. Fresh juices have the vitamins and minerals that will keep you going throughout the day. Take full advantage of your high energy level on moving days. Check out your local juice stores in Edmond Oklahoma to energize yourself for your big move in or out day!
