If you already have a storage unit for personal use, you know how great it is to have belongings moved out of your space and into a safe and secure location. What you may not know is how useful storage facilities are for business. Whether you own a large corporation that needs additional space or a small business that simply does not have enough room for important documents and supplies, renting a storage unit may be the solution you are looking for.

Business Storage Can Save You Money

Office space is expensive. If your business is growing and you want to hire more employees, you will need to make room. If you have records, file cabinets, supplies, and products that you do not use on a regular basis, you may want to move them to a storage facility.

There are many factors to consider when finding the right storage unit for your prized possessions. For some, all that matters is where the units are located and if they are secure. For others, it is important that the units are climate controlled. Certain products do not age well when exposed to fluctuations in temperature and moisture. A climate-controlled facility will provide consistent moisture and temperature control to ensure that your belongings are preserved.

Advantages of Climate Control

Heat can damage just about any type of belonging you may want to store at a facility. The summer months in Pasadena are particularly dangerous for pictures, wood products, videotapes, and books.

Storing Open Red Wine

By Storbox Self-Storage on July 2, 2014 - Comments off

There are some wonderful merlots, cabernets sauvignons, and syrah wines that deserve a place in your collection. The best red wines improve with age and require proper storage. When the day comes to finally sample your red, you may find that you cannot polish it off in one sitting. Should you dump the rest or are there ways to preserve the quality of the wine even after the bottle is opened?

Why Wine Goes Bad

Over time, oxygen turns red wine into vinegar. Therefore, it is vital to reduce the amount of oxygen to which your wine is exposed. If you remove or reduce the amount of oxygen near the wine, it will prolong its shelf life and keep it ready for drinking. When this is done correctly, a red can be stored open for up to a week.
