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.
Call us today to rent your Ypsilanti storage unit from U-Lock-It!
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."
Make the most of deals and promotions
We understand that renting a storage unit is an investment, and we know you work hard for your money. That's why we often offer sign-up deals such as "second month off" or "20% off your first month." Further, we offer the lowest prices in town and won't rope you in with deals then stick you with unexpected costs. For our current customers, you can save on your next month's rent with our referral program. Tell your friends, family, and neighbors about U-Lock-It, and if they sign up for a unit, you'll save money on your next month. Talk to our Office Manager for more information on our referral program.

Thanks for pointing out that self-storage offers an affordable way to keep an office from getting cluttered. I would imagine that any business owner would want to avoid incidents that can affect their operations. I think they should consider getting secure storage where they can keep their products safely.

I want to move into a smaller home, but I won't be able to fit everything into it. It makes sense that getting a self storage unit would be beneficial! That way, I can have a place to store all of my excess things.
It's interesting to know that storage units would be able to save you money when you want to reduce your expenses on the office space you are renting. In that case, renting drive-up self-storage would be a good investment for small business owners. Since they have a limited budget at first, they should definitely choose options or find ways to reduce their monthly expenses to prevent going bankrupt immediately.

It captured me the most when you mentioned that self-storage units allow you to save on having a smaller apartment. That's probably why my friend wants to get a self-storage unit. I should advise him to choose one that prioritizes security.

I like that you talked about being able to save money and not spending all of them on warehouses or offices by just renting a commercial storage unit instead. I can imagine how helpful this would be to companies that are just starting out in the industry. They would probably have a limited budget as a capital and as they grow, so they would need a place to safely keep their products until they can sell them all.

I like that you said that one of the best alternatives for having personal storage is having a self-storage unit. Yesterday, my cousin told me he was looking for a self-storage that he would use as storage for his clothing business products. He asked if I had any idea what would be the best option for him. I wanted to thank you for your explanation about the importance of consulting a self-storage rental service. I'll be sure to tell him that it will be much better if he consults one.

Thanks for sharing that one of the benefits of renting a storage unit is that it helps us reduce our costs of living. My wife and I are planning to live more frugal. Maybe I can look into how a storage unit can benefit us.

I find it interesting that self-storage allows you to downsize your living space and cut back on rent. My husband and I have been considering moving into a smaller apartment this spring so we can save money. We'll have to rent a self-storage unit this month to make it possible for us to downsize our apartment.
