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.

File Storage

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.

Alternative Office 

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.
