Storage buildings can be a great asset to your small business. Thinking of starting your own business? Is now the time in your life to become your own boss? Do you already have a growing small business and you need some extra storage space? Contact Classic Buildings today.


What are the Advantages of Storage Buildings for Small Business Owners?

If you are a small business owner and you are wondering if it is worth the investment to purchase a storage building to use as extra storage, here are 10 really good reasons why it makes sense, both for convenience and cost savings.

1. It’s Not a Large Investment – No Huge Capital Costs

If you need extra storage space for your growing business, a storage building from Classic Buildings makes a great option because it doesn’t involve a huge capital cost; especially when you can purchase one through our Rent-To-Own program. This means that you can simply pay a reasonable monthly payment towards the purchase of your building until it is paid off in a few short years. At that time, the building is yours and you will still have the extra storage space and the money you save on your monthly payments can be put back into your business or taken as profits.

2. Get a Building That is Customized to Suit Your Business’ Particular Needs

Every business is different and the “one size fits” all approach to public storage or rented warehouse space may not be the most efficient solution for you. Your own storage buildings can be customized to suit your business perfectly. You can have shelving, workbenches, insulation, electricity, etc added to make your building fit your business. If you don’t see a design on the Classic Buildings’ site that you think is ideal for your company, talk to us and we will help you design one that works for you.

3. Why Pay Warehouse Storage Fees?

Why pay warehouse storage fees, when you can make approximately the same amount of a payment and put it towards owning your own storage building? Classic Buildings’ low monthly Rent-To-Own payments are very comparable to that of public storage fees with the added advantage that, unlike public storage units, in a few short years, you will actually own your building. Renting office or storage space offsite involves continual monthly costs whereas with Rent-To-Own, once you make your final payment, the monthly costs would cease.

4. Have Your Product Close By to Monitor Your Inventory

Inventory control is very important if you own a business. Having your product, supplies, or tools that you need to carry out your small business right on your property has a great advantage in that you will be better able to keep a close eye on your inventory. When your supplies or products are running low or need replacing, you are close to see this. You won’t have to rely on your memory or make time-consuming trips to your off-site storage to see if you need to order more.

5. Buy in Bulk to Save More

Often small business owners have to buy smaller amounts of their product instead of being able to take advantage of the cost savings usually found when you can buy in bulk. Having an extra storage area of your own means that you can take advantage of deals that you find and you will now have a place to store that extra product.

6. If You Decide to Sell Your Business, It is an Asset That You Can Also Sell With It

If at some point in the future you decide to sell your business, your storage building will be an asset that you can also sell along with it. Because Classic Buildings’ sheds are portable, they can be conveniently moved to the new owner’s location.




7. If You Move You Can Take It With You

If you decide to move to a different house, you can take your building with you as it is completely portable. You don’t need to worry about losing your storage space just because you are going to a new home.

8. Artists – Set Up Your Own Gallery

If you are an artist or craftsman of any kind, you can use your storage building as an art gallery where you can beautifully display your creations as well as work on them in peace. Classic Buildings has a number of beautiful designs such as the Breckenridge which would make a lovely gallery or studio for painters, potters, sculptors, and even writers.

9. Dog Groomers Could Expand Their Business With Additional Kennels

If you have a pet grooming business and would like to expand it, you could consider having a storage building converted into dog kennels. You can use these to conveniently board your furry friends and make some extra money as well.

10. Workshop for Carpenters and Other Tradesmen

Storage buildings can be easily and affordably transformed into great workshops for tradesmen from carpenters to plumbers, handymen to electricians. They are also a safe and convenient spot to store all of your tools of the trade, keeping your garage free for your vehicle. The design below is a great option for tradesmen as it allows you to park two vehicles below in the garage and its upper level is perfect for a workshop.
