A cramped up workspace can make all the difference in work efficiency. Once you’ve out-grown, your workspace paperwork tends to pile-up and more difficult to organize. Many businesses are starting to resort to self-storage, a brilliant cost-effective way to tackle your clutter problem.

At Demenagment Olympique we find that businesses are not just looking for permanent storage facilities, but also short term solutions for during remodeling or downsizing, relocating business, storing seasonal furnishings such as patio furniture, grills, outdoor kiosks, etc. , and storing excess inventory before the start of the holiday season.

Storage units can essentially work as an extra office; here are some tips to make use of it effectively

Tip #1: Make a list of all of the items you’ll be storing in your unit, and keep an ongoing inventory

This way you can determine what you have stored and what’s in the office. It’s very easy to forget over time what you’ve taken out or added to your storage space, especially if several employees frequently access the unit. With proper packing and organizations, you can use a self-storage unit much more efficiently.

Tip #2: Climate control

This might not be necessary to most cases, however, maintaining a steady temperature of between 55–80° using central air conditioning and heat can prevents warping, rust, yellowing, mold, and infestation of vermin.

Tip #3 Proper Packing

To save as much space as possible, it is important to pack your office belongings as efficiently as possible.  Here are a few packing tips:

  • Computers should ideally be put in a box and then packed securely with packing peanuts or some other type of foam insulation.
  • Archival documents, photos, or other paperwork should be packed in boxes that are roughly the same size so they can be easily stacked in the storage unit.
  • Office furniture can be turned on end vertically.

At Demenagement Olympique, we could help you pack and move your items at a fractional fee!
