Let’s face it: Your New Year’s resolution to grow your business probably was buried by the COVID-19 crisis.

We at EZ Access Storage understand that investing money into your new business venture requires a lot of front-loading of materials; materials you thought you might need, and they just sit there. Instead of throwing away or donating your unused inventory…store it! We have just the size for you.
Reason 2: Keep Your Inventory Organized
As a small business ourself, we understand how important it is to keep your inventory organized. Most importantly, small businesses tend to be, well, small. The smaller your office space or business site, the less space you have dedicated to inventory storage. This is never a problem for big-box stores.
Here are a three tips to keep your inventory organized:
- Organize your products by type, and be sure to group them together. This way, your inventory will be easier to find.
- We recommend adhering digital photos of the items on the boxes’ exterior, so you know exactly what you’re pulling.
- Moreover, add stickers with the stock-keeping unit (SKU) numbers, so you can easily track and maintain your inventory.
Reason 3: Separate Business from Home
Many small businesses operate out of home offices and workspaces. However, as your business–and inventory–grows, it can be alluring to merge your workspace and home life. This could end up being considered a commingling of funds, which is a big NO-NO!
The more you can separate your home life from your business, the better off you will be. Therefore, it’s time to clear your spare bedroom and buy a storage unit. You’ll find that renting a self storage unit is quite a reasonable, and affordable, way to store and track your inventory.
