Storage units can be assets for small businesses in need of extra space. We host several small business owners at our facility who make great use of our large storage units. We love to hear about their creative use of the space.
Larry moved into one of our drive up units in 2018. Larry owns a handyman service business. He primarily uses the storage unit as a workshop to store items and tools. Earlier this month, he upgraded to a larger drive-up unit, which was exactly the size he was waiting for! Larry was pretty excited to move into a much-needed larger space. Before moving into the new unit, he built an entire mezzanine in the larger space. The drive-up units on the first floor are large, they can be up to 12’ tall. Maximizing the storage capacity of these units is difficult without some kind of shelving. Larry was smart and built a mezzanine to accommodate this. We highly recommend using shelving or some structure that can access storage at the top of the unit to maximize the utility of the space. Larry’s business does high quality work with a quick turnaround time. We love having him at Dillingham Storage and admire his creative use of the storage units.
