What To Store In A Business Storage Unit?
Business storage units can come in all sizes, you can fit just about anything in it. Storage facilities can keep all of the tenant’s items secure and safe from vandals, burglars, and the elements. Here are some of the things that we found were stored inside business storage units:
- Business Files
- Office Supplies
- Office Equipment
- Heavy machinery
- Bulk goods
- Marketing supplies
- Catering Supplies (no food items i.e. plates, utensils, table mats)
- Surplus Goods
What To Store In A Business Storage Unit?
Unbeknownst to most, a business storage unit does more than just act as storage for businesses. Below we’ve listed the most common reasons for business storage.
The majority of companies have been using storage facilities as a warehouse for their inventory and stocks since the 1900s. If your company constantly deals with bulk amounts of goods, then business storage is definitely a must-have. It’s loads cheaper than keeping items on-site.
Business storage units can act as an archive for your files. It’s best practise to keep physical copies of company files, even if they aren’t needed at the moment. In fact in the UK businesses are obliged to keep important paperwork for at least 7 years. A cheaper, more secure and hassle-free option to archiving is to rent commercial storage units.
Startups and small businesses find that business storage units make for decent office space. Artists, woodworkers, and sculptors also consider commercial storage units as a perfect location that gets their creative juices flowing. Note that Henfield does not currently offer this facility.
Amenities Offered In A Business Storage Unit
Just as with a self-storage facility, a business storage unit can be customised to have a lot of convenient amenities. Not only does this give consumers added convenience, but it also becomes more useful. Here are some of the amenities that you can have for your business storage unit.
- 24/7 CCTV

- Random Guard Patrols

‘very good experience’
We had a great and stress free experience today with Henfield. Our driver came to pick up our stuff at the time we wanted, and helped us put everything into the van. The free collection was a bonus for us otherwise we would have struggle to move our items. Once in the storage, it was very easy to get access to our storage container. Very easy and stress free process, I can only recommend the Wimbledon team. Thank you for your helpRead more

‘Amazing Friendly Service’
Henfield Storage (Horsham) did absolutely everything right! They dealt with my queries and moving date change, very quickly and in a very friendly manner. Nothing was too hard or any trouble for them. On moving day, the young men who helped load the vans, were again, very friendly and professional. The move into their storage facility was quick and efficient. It was just a great experience. Thank you!! Would highly recommend to anyone in need of storage, to use Henfield.Read more
