How to Grow an Electrical Business with Self Storage

  • An electrician stands with his arms crossed in his shop.
Being your own boss is a tricky business. You’ve got to get the work, get the work done, and continuously be thinking of ways to improve the whole operation. Plus, you have to manage employees, handle your accounting, pay your taxes, and make sure that everything else gets done.

You don’t want to stagnate. But you also don’t want to grow too fast.

The great news is there is a way to expand your business without letting your overhead get out of control.

Self Storage Units for Electricians

You probably saw this coming. Yes, we do think self storage is a great way to grow your business.

Let’s say you’re running out of space to store all of your tools and supplies. Maybe you’re keeping them all in your garage or maybe you have a small shop that’s getting cramped.

Sure, you could sign a contract and rent more space—and it could be that is the right move for you. But it also might be smarter to take things more slowly.

Self storage units have the benefit of being able to be rented on a month-to-month basis. Even better, you aren’t tied to any one location. So, if you get a big job on the other side of town, you can simply move your supplies to a self storage near the site.

You’ll be able to change directions quickly. If your business hits a dry spell, you can let the extra space go. And when times are good, you can rent more space.
