If you have a business in Boulder, Colorado you know that using an off-site Boulder storage facility it not only frees up space in your offices, but saves you money in the long run. Keeping up with all of the files and paperwork is often times the hassle of your office. It doesn’t matter how beneficial the government was with their Paperwork Reduction Act, there’s still a blizzard of paper that every office has to keep up with, regardless of how large or how small. Unlike most small businesses who may not need much space, a large business could quickly run out of storage space.
Any and all paperwork pertaining to your business needs to be saved regardless of what it pertains to. Tax records, receipts, invoices, correspondence, quotes, bids and whatever else that pertains to moving money or product has to be retained for at least 7 years. That way if there is any type of legal need for documentation, it will be available. However, that can mean keeping track of dozens of boxes of papers, all carefully filed away. Not only do you have to know where every piece of paper is, but it also needs to be stored in a facility that will be environmentally safe so moisture and other damaging factors can’t get to it.
And if your business is large enough, it could actually pay you to have a Boulder storage and moving company take the records from your office and store them for you. Not only would it be less expensive to pay the labor to have it moved for you, but that puts all the liability on the moving company for the move. Also, having paperwork stored offsite is yet another way to ensure if something happens to your offices that you don’t lose all of your important documents. Losing all of your files after a disaster could mean the difference between staying in business or not.
The space needed to store all those files in your very own building costs your business money, something many don’t consider. If you cost out a 5’ x 8’ room that could be used for an office or some other useful function that can generate income instead of being dead space, most often you’ll find that renting a storage unit off site saves money.
While renting a storage facility does add a monthly cost you may not have had before, the cost benefits are usually well worth the minimal expense. To see the money you could actually save, take the time to calculate the benefits to having an off-site storage unit?
