Storage Plus VS. Self-Storage Facility
Saving Money with Storage Plus by 5R, Inc.
ALWAY SPACE, NEVER WASTE!
Because storage is charged by the box, not a unit, you never pay for empty space AND never run out room!
Some businesses rent a storage unit at a self-storage facility to store paper records because they are not aware of the savings available from a commercial records center.
While the Self Storage solution may appear inexpensive, it is not the most cost effective or efficient solution.
Because a businesses using the services of Storage Plus benefit from the economic principle of economies of scale they have a distinct competitive advantage over their competition. Consider the following comparisons:
SELF-STORAGE COST Using A 10ft x 20ft Unit
The average cost of a 10ft x 20 ft. unit is $125.00 per month/$1,500.00 per year. This size unit will accommodate 304 letter/legal boxes (16x12x10). This is a unit price of $0.41 per letter legal box, IF THE UNIT IS FULL. When a storage unit is not full the cost per box quickly escalates. A half empty unitraises the unit cost to $0.82 per box, per month.
With Storage Plus your valuable documents are never damaged by over stacking. You also never pay for unneeded space. Resulting in a fixed rate constant cost per box far below $0.41 cents per box.
Retrieval is more difficult, time consuming and dangerous in an over packed storage unit. Boxes collapse when over stacked creating an unsafe work environment which could lead to you or your employee being injured. In addition to the direct expense of the storage unit, consider these additional, hidden costs:
