Here at U-Lock-It Self Storage Belleville, we take pride in offering safe, accessible, and convenient self-storage at an affordable price. Further, we love doing business in the Belleville, Ypsilanti, and Ann Arbor areas, which is why we treat our customers as neighbors. With those two things in mind, it's no wonder that so many of our customers rent from us year after year. We also understand that self-storage is an investment, and there are many factors to consider when deciding to rent storage. For instance, self-storage can actually save you and your business money.
With real estate prices continuing to rise, self-storage offers a safe and affordable alternative. Moreover, business owners should also consider self-storage to help cut back on overhead and rent expenses. Here are four ways self-storage can save you money.

Downsize your living expenses
The housing market continues to drive home prices and apartment rents through the roof (no pun intended). Renting a self-storage unit at our low prices will help you downsize your living space, which means lower rents and mortgages. For example, our 10x20 units can hold the contents of a one-car garage. If you have many seasonal items, such as snow blowers and summertime RVs & campers, it's more affordable and safer to keep them in storage than to purchase a home with an oversized garage.
For renters, you may have enough items to fit in a two-bedroom apartment, but only the budget for a one-bedroom. Our 10X10 storage units are large enough to accommodate furniture, appliances such as refrigerators, and more. While having a larger apartment is nice, the location of your apartment might be more critical. By utilizing self-storage, you can move to a smaller apartment in an area with more to do and explore.
Save your business money with self-storage
Not every business needs a large warehouse or office these days. For instance, a local landscaping company might only have enough equipment to fill a 10x20 unit, or a moving company might only need a place to park its van. Why spend all that money on a warehouse or office when you can rent a self-storage unit? Here at U-Lock-It, many small business owners choose to rent with us because we offer 24-hr gate access, which means they can check on inventory, tools, cars, etc. whenever they choose.
Also, if you are utilizing your storage unit for your business, you should consider writing the expense off on your taxes. We suggest talking to your accountant for more information.
Just keep in mind a storage unit can help save you money by reducing your office space, but it's not an alternative. In other words, you are more than welcome to store business items in storage safely, but you can't physically run your business from a unit.
Reducing clutter can improve productivity
If you do own a business with an office, then self-storage offers an affordable way to keep it from getting cluttered. For instance, if your company has many seasonal items or tools/equipment you only use sparingly throughout the year, consider self-storage. Why? Because clutter can disrupt productivity and lead to damaged and lost items. Have peace of mind knowing your company's products are secure in your unit, as well as accessible with our 24-hr gate access.
According to Figari.com: "Decluttering with a healthy amount of an organizational overhaul not only sanitizes a space, it can also elevate work quality, boost efficiency, and improve one's health."
