The nature of outside storage

Even the term “outside storage” can mean a variety of things, but usually people use that term to describe one of two storage solutions:

  • Actually storing something outside, either uncovered or under some awning structure
  • Outside from your main place of business, but in a separate shed structure.

Let’s look at each of these in a bit more detail.

Actual outside, uncovered storage

Why would someone need outside storage?  Perhaps a company has a fleet of trucks or vans, and they need somewhere to park them until they are needed.  Perhaps a farming implement company needs space for big equipment?  Perhaps a landscaping company needs space for yards upon yards of gravel and topsoil used in their business.  Or, perhaps a single homeowner just needs a place to store their RV or boat or trailer.  All of these are examples of outside storage, which can either be rented or owned.

Usually, the business owners we meet, find it to be economically advantageous to simply rent outside storage for their business as needed.  Actually purchasing commercial or industrial space is too cost-prohibitive for more companies to consider, so they will turn to a place like Blue Mound 287 Self Storage and simply pay a monthly rental fee for the outside storage when needed.

Enclosed outside storage

Covered storage is another matter altogether.  Renting a storage container structure at a place like Box Office Warehouse Suites, in the Fort Worth Design District, is often the perfect solution for a company who needs covered storage separate from their main place of business.  Or, and again, this might be cost-prohibitive, they will simply purchase a storage container, or any of a number of other outside sheds the type of which you can find at any Home Depot or Lowes, and have a semi-permanent structure they can call their own.

Many options to choose from in the Fort Worth area

From a purely business standpoint, the good thing about the upheaval caused by the pandemic years is that there are many options available for those looking for industrial space and commercial property for lease.

Check your budget, ask yourself if you are looking for a temporary solution or a permanent one, decide upon the size of the outside storage you need, and then call a place like RDS Real Estate, which specializes in problems just like yours.  If it exists in the Fort Worth area, we will find it.
