If you are an event planner, you know how important it is to remain organized at all times. Keeping track of your contacts, invoices, decorations, supplies, and everything else can be overwhelming. If you work out of an office in your home, then staying organized is that much more important. As an event planner, you will accumulate a lot of things. The more stuff that you accumulate, the more clutter that is going to occur in the garage or spare room. Luckily, you have another option: renting a self-storage unit. Here are a few benefits of renting from a self-storage facility as an event planner.
You Can Take Back Your Spare Room or Garage
The most apparent way you can benefit from a storage unit is that you can finally get your home space back that you are currently using for all of your stuff. Instead of using your home real estate to store your event items, you can organize them into a self-storage unit and have easy access to everything. This will also help you maintain a much more controlled work/life balance.
You Can Have Drive-Up Access to Bulkier Items
There is a good chance that you have some bulky items that are used for your event planning services. Photo props, table favors, archways, etc. can take up a lot of space—more than you realize—and they can be hard to load/unload quickly when you don't have direct access to your spare room/shed. Luckily, many storage units offer drive-up access, which can reduce the amount of time that you have to spend loading and unloading into and out of your vehicle.
You Can Control the Climate of the Space for Documents and Files
As an event planner, you are going to have more than just decorations to store. You are also going to have client invoices and files to store. Some event planners actually keep one binder per event that is planned. Eventually, it will not make sense to keep these types of records in your home. In fact, at some point, you should consider going digital with your paperwork.
For old papers that you are keeping, or if you do not want to go digital, you will want to make sure that these items are stored in a climate-controlled storage unit to avoid any damage to these documents that could occur as a result of extreme temperature fluctuations. Candles, glassware, and other décor items can benefit from being stored in a climate-controlled unit as well.
