Business Storage vs. Personal Storage

Business storage units are designed for commercial purposes and typically offer more space to accommodate larger quantities of stock and/or equipment. Larger spaces often lead to business owners needing to give detailed documentation for tax and insurance purposes, inventory management, and regulatory compliance.

Personal storage, on the other hand, caters to individuals — with storage providers emphasising convenience and minimal paperwork. While personal storage focuses on ease-of-use and flexibility for individual users, business storage solutions are structured to support operational efficiency, security and compliance for a wide range of commercial entities.

Commercial Storage for Every Business

Commercial storage units are essential to the smooth running of various businesses. From creative sole traders to limited companies, having access to a business storage unit near you is great for ensuring your commercial assets are safe and secure. 

Here are a few ways in which an industrial storage unit can help different businesses: 

  • Project-Based Requirements: For construction firms, event organisers, or any business with project-specific equipment, storage units provide a secure space to store tools and materials between jobs.
  • Artists & Creative Professionals: Whether you have valuable instruments, art supplies or studio equipment, musicians, artists and photographers can all benefit from having a dedicated safe space to protect their supplies.
  • Document Archiving: Any business that accumulates significant amounts of paperwork can use storage units for archiving and keeping important files organised, accessible and secure.
  • Inventory Management: Retail storage units are great for businesses and e-commerce platforms that need extra space to store their inventory, especially if there’s an overflow during peak-selling seasons.
  • Securing Valuable Assets: Our shipping containers are designed to protect sensitive electronics, specialist machinery and high-value goods from environmental damage and theft in a controlled and monitored environment.
