One of the biggest costs of running a retail business is space. Retail space is not cheap. The cost of the space itself, plus the accompanying bills, quickly add up, and you can find yourself struggling to stay afloat in a space that is rapidly eating up a lot of your available cash. Luckily, there are alternatives to traditional retail space which can save you a lot of money and hassle. Below are some of the ways that a self storage unit can save you money as a retail business.

Inventory

If you are running a retail business out of your home or a small office space, you are going to find that your inventory (especially as the business starts to grow) can take up an unmanageable amount of your floor space. Many business owners realize that storage pricing looks a lot more appealing once they calculate how much money it could save them on inventory storage.

Documents

If you are new to running your own business and haven’t looked into storage pricing for all the important business documentation you are going to be accumulating, you should. Customer and vendor receipts and records, as well as tax information and delivery orders, will start to pile up and clutter your workspace if you don’t have somewhere to put them. A self storage unit can help a growing retail business make sure it always has work space available that isn’t clogged up by paper work.

Running the Business

When you start to compare storage pricing with the cost of commercial real estate (especially if you live in a hot real estate market) you may even decide that running the entire operation out of a self storage unit is a good idea. Many retailers have come to that conclusion, and have saved themselves a considerable amount of money by operating out of a self storage facility.

Security

Once you start accumulating inventory and have valuable goods on the premises, you are going to become a target for thieves. That’s just the way it is. Part of being a retailer means protecting your items from people who want to steal them from you. If you are worried that your brick and mortar store is too vulnerable (maybe it is located in a crime afflicted area), and you would like some extra peace of mind, keeping inventory locked up in a secure self storage facility might just help you sleep better.

Storage pricing is competitive and flexible, meaning you can tailor and re-tailor your space to meet your needs as they arise. Consider the above benefits of growing your retail business by investing in a self storage unit, and blow the competition away by cutting your costs.

Many people are turning to entrepreneurship and small businesses in the 21st century as a way to add additional income to their main source, or as an attempt to transition away from the corporate world into something they are truly passionate about. Running a business from your home, or renting office space, comes with a wide range of complications, especially as your business begins to grow and you find yourself with constantly changing requirements. Below are some of the ways that a storage space can help you grow your business and take it to the next level.

Safety and Security

Many of your clients, especially if you manufacture or ship things, are going to want to know that what they are buying from you is well protected. If you are storing everything in your home or unsecured office space, it appears unprofessional, and there is a good chance that some people, especially if the items are unique and fragile, are going to feel like their purchases could be lost or damaged. Storage space can provide current and prospective clients with peace of mind that what they are buying is well protected.

Inventory Storage

As your business and customer base grows, the amount of inventory that you will start keeping on hand is probably going to rise as well. If you are unwilling to leave your home or the small office space you are renting, your growth might end up being constrained by the amount of space you have on hand to store everything. Self storage is a great way to free up office space for actual work.

Affordability

As your business grows and your space requirements expand, if you are working out of an office space outside your home, the cost of renting, leasing, or owning more space could be very expensive. A self storage unit is affordable and secure, and can help you add additional space to your operations without breaking the bank.

Flexibility

One of the great things about most self storage facilities is the flexibility of their contracts. You are able to increase and decrease the size of your space as your needs change. Business ebbs and flows, and needs change with the tide. If you all of a sudden need a bigger space and then six months later need to transition back to something smaller, a flexible contract at a self storage facility can help you do that.

Growing your business means taking advantage of every opportunity that is available to you and working hard to make your dreams a reality. If you are looking for a great way to add additional space in a way that is cost effective, a self storage unit might just be your best bet.

There are certain documents that we need to keep safe at all times. From wills to property deeds to life insurance policies to immunization records and other important forms, it is imperative these documents remain safe during a move. Some of these documents are irreplaceable and it would a shame to lose them, while others are essential to your and your family’s overall well being.

Keep Sensitive Documents Safe While Moving

If you’re unsure how to keep sensitive documents safe while moving here are some important tips:

  • Make replicas. Before you move, make copies of all your valuable documents. Besides paper copies, scan everything and save a version to your computer. When it comes to sensitive documents you can never have too many copies. If you lose the originals during the move at least you will have an electronic version saved to your hard drive as a backup.

  • Protect your documents in plastic. Purchase folders that you can use to safeguard your papers. Plastic folders offer protection and your papers will be easy to remove. Some people even go as far as laminating their important forms but only do so if it’s absolutely necessary.

  • Sealed them in a protective pouch with key. These pouches can be found at hardware and office supply stores. They are what people who handle money use for transporting large sums to and from locations. These pouches come with a key that you can keep with you.

  • Rent a storage space for your special forms. It may seem excessive to rent a storage area just to house sensitive documents while you move but in reality, it’s one of the safest options. When you rent a storage unit, you will be the only person who has access to it.

    Buy a small, fireproof safe and store your valuable papers inside it. An added bonus is that you can also leave other treasures and keepsakes like jewelry, priceless family heirlooms and photographs in a storage unit. Storage units give you peace of mind so you don’t have to worry about your valuables while you’re in the process of moving.

  • Make a list of everything you’ve stored and where it’s located. Keep this information on your phone or computer, somewhere that it can be password protected. Use codes and/or abbreviations so should your phone fall into the wrong hands no one will be able to decipher where you’ve left your valuables.

Overall the most important thing is to simply be smart. Ensure your documents are somewhere secure and where very few people have access to. When it comes to keeping private information private, logic is key!

At Jiffy Storage, we try to be paperless where possible. We use file-sharing, online banking, cloud storage, and more. Still, like most companies, we still end up with a mountain of paperwork every single year!

Professional Document Storage & Maintenance

Paper is simply just another cost of doing business. Every small business we know has a mountain of paper that they don’t have space to store, can’t afford to throw out, and have no time to digitize.

Luckily, storage solutions can help with that!

Climate-Control and Document Maintenance

It would be great if every office was reliably heated, air conditioned, and humidity-controlled. Sadly, that is nowhere near the case in Toronto. The hot, sticky weather of summer has a tendency to wreck paper documents, encouraging mould that is terrible for both you and your customers. Over time, the damp and the mould can also destroy your records, opening you to possible problems if the CRA ever audits you.

Avoid these problems with a climate-controlled unit!

Secure Document Storage

Security is important, especially if you keep client information on site. Unfortunately, most businesses aren’t as secure as they should be. However, storage units are!

Secure storage companies employ fulltime security measures and lock down every area with cardkey locks. This is categorically safer than most traditional office buildings.

Cost-Effective Document Maintenance

The office space that you waste storing documents costs you some serious money. If your office is downtown, you are probably paying about $7 per square foot per month. If your office is out of downtown but still in Toronto proper, you are probably paying $4-$5 per square foot per month.

Now, let’s compare that to a secure, climate-controlled unit. Most will run you about $1 per square foot. Regardless of where your office is, it will cost you half as much to store documents off-site than it will to give up your expensive office space!

Document Delivery

Storing documents offsite doesn’t have to be time-consuming. Document storage facilities can receive packages of documents and store them securely in your unit. We use secure procedures to make sure that your documents are not left unattended until they are locked away. Instead of driving to us, just send them by UPS!

After several years as a professional window cleaner, Mark Strange and his wife Leonor decided they would give retail store ownership a try. Of course the perfect choice of product to sell would be window cleaning supplies as well as other related cleaning products. Mark began doing research on store locations and involved costs back around the fall of 2012. That’s when he first spotted the newly renovated store units in the front end of Jiffy Storage Plaza on Wilson Ave.

After finally making the decision to move forward with the retail store in Toronto, Mark and Leonor began renting a retail unit in July of 2013 and eagerly began renovations. By late August they had both their Toronto retail store unit and window cleaner supplies eCommerce site up and running. They launched the store with a bang by hold a gathering of the window cleaning trade, performing live demonstrations of high window cleaning using the latest technologies.

As Mark and Leonor move forward with their store, they both feel very positive about the choice they made taking a retail unit at Jiffy Self-Storage Plaza in Toronto and appreciate that if they need extra storage space, there are many smaller units available on site for as short or long as necessary for surplus inventory when they need it for their retail business.

Many popular and sought-after window cleaning products are available for sale on their website, including:

  • T-Bar squeegees
  • T-Bar squeegees

  • A basic cleaning kit for an easy do-it-yourself solution
  • Basic Cleaning Kit

  • Brushes, scowering pads and sponges
  • Brushes

  • Heavy-duty cleaning buckets
  • Heavy-duty Cleaning Buckets

  • Cleaning and polishing towels
  • Cleaning & Polishing Towels

  • Scrapers and blades for glass cleaning
  • Scrapers & Blades

  • Water systems and extension poles for squeegees
  • Extension Poles For Squeegees

  • Professional grade soaps and specialty cleaners
  • Specialty Cleaners

  • Squeegee handles
  • Squeegee Handles

  • Complete squeegee solutions
  • Squeegee Solutions

But their products extend beyond window cleaning. The Beautiful View also has for sale all the equipment you’ll need to maintain and clean your dryer ducts, including a complete cleaning package along with extension rods and lint catching bags.

And they can also help you clean out dirt and leave-catching gutters, which of course can drip and leak onto windows down below. Their products on offer here include gutter strainers, scoops, large heavy-duty pails and an attachment letting you join your work ladder to the gutter.

They also aren’t scared to run hard-to-beat sales. In the run-up to Christmas, for example, they’ve put a great selection of products by well-known window cleaning equipment maker Wagtail up for sale.

Whether you’re able to make a trip up to their store in the Jiffy Plaza or are visiting their online store, Beautiful View will offer the selection of window cleaning tools and accessories you need to get the job done right.

So give them a visit at

tiff Troonto 2013

It was really one of the best years ever for TIFF. So many stars came up to Toronto to be part of the festival.

But behind the scenes are networks of support staff, workers, film producers, directors, script writers – anyone and everyone – in and outside of Toronto, working to make the deals for these new movies and passing “hush, hush” secret scripts for next year’s and years’ following. All of these things happen while all the public’s events are happening.

Our Toronto TIFF Film Festival has become so big that it is one of the World’s Top 3 Events for promoting films.

At Jiffy Self Storage we are very proud of the boost that TIFF gives to the Toronto economy. So its just not film people or film industry that benefits. It’s everyone in Toronto that benefits from this huge undertaking such as hotels, food suppliers, waiters, tourist operators, overtime civil servants, police, private security – you name it, they benefit. We congratulate everyone at TIFF that makes this world class festival one of the largest of its kind anywhere.

In fact, Jiffy Self-Storage provides storage services already to many in the industry. Currently we are storing movie costumes, bound scripts, financial records, props, POPs (point of purchase displays), print material and marketing collateral.

One of the items that we also store associated with TIFF are trade show displays, such as folding aluminium structures used with back drops, displays, marketing incentive pieces, just to name a few.

Many people that frequent Toronto for trade shows and for TIFF even only one time per year find that it is cheaper and easier than shipping these types of materials from their local warehouse or as far away as New York, Hollywood California, Las Vegas, Chicago and Miami. Customs is supposed to streamline the brokerage and shipping process but I cannot tell you how many times people we rent to got their displays and collateral days late. Our clients have found that often when displays come up from US or beyond that sometimes critical parts go missing and panic takes place when assembling products for the big show.

It easier to store close to the City where the show takes place and you don’t have to worry about Peter robbing Paul’s stuff cause Paul needed to borrow just one small critical part for the time being.

To encourage more TIFF support and networking staff to store at Jiffy, we are giving a discount coupon to all TIFF support staff, workers and exhibitors that want to safely store their stuff in a secure, climate controlled environment. Just click here for your discount coupon.

And yes, the $798 million dollars that was the amount mentioned as the boost to Toronto’s economy (that came from Toronto’s Globe and Mail). So even trickles come down to us guys and yes, we appreciate the business that we receive from TIFF and all involved in the Toronto Film Industry.

Jiffy Self-Storage is ecstatic about the support the public at large provides and the success of this years TIFF 2013 festival. We congratulate TIFF and look forward to doing more secure storage business in Toronto with TIFF in 2014.1A old new high res sq logo

It’s not often that a capital project comes in “On Time” and “On Budget” but this is exact outcome of this Phase 2 Project of Workspaces and Retail Stores. Toronto General Contractors, Power Mechanical completed the project with a minimum of delays and even if they were working against some delays, they made up valuable time elsewhere.

Project scope of work included complete demolition of a large existing restaurant to bare walls, demolition of block walls, installation of new store fronts, interior workspace partitions, HVAC (Heating and Air Conditioning ducts to supply and return air), fire sprinklers and complete upgrade of internal security and fire systems. Project took 4 months from start to finish and the result of Power Mechanical’s expertise can easily be seen.

Clean workspace/office is ideal for small Toronto business.
Clean workspace/office is ideal environment for any small Toronto business.

All our new tenants found the space to be very attractive and conducive to the work environment. Jiffy Workspaces are like a small mini warehouses that contain both regular entry doors and roll up doors for ease of movement of inventory and supplies. This is more than a convenience. This feature allows the tenant to use the space as an office and if necessary, stock their mini-warehouse/office with goods on or off pallets.

Tenants of workspaces include eBay sellers, paralegal, general contractors, technicians, hobbyist, just to name a few. Many of these small businesses were previously located at the business person’s home (SOHO), but the home space was no longer conducive for operating their business on account of distractions from within. When these home businesses became serious businesses, business entrepreneurs welcomed the variety of sizes of small offices located at Jiffy Self-Storage that are more suited for businesses that outgrew their home environments.

Jiffy Plaza
New floor-to-ceiling storefronts enhance retail presence.

Another feature of locating an office in the Jiffy Self-Storage building, Toronto, is that when the office becomes crowded with inventory, marketing collateral, point of purchase displays, and so on, a storage space can be rented in the storage portion of the building for short or long term storage, without having to enlarge the office space.

Retail users at Jiffy Plaza consist of hardware store, all day breakfast, moving store, payday loan and self-storage store. Only a few stores remain that are as little as 400 sf and can be combined up to 1,200 sq ft.

As the global economy continues to decline, investors are more reluctant to dish out the cash many entrepreneurs and aspiring business owners need. Nowadays large financial institution’s and venture capitalists are increasing their lending requirements.

Storage Rental Toronto
Successful Toronto entrepreneur lowers operating cost & risk with low rent.

Banks need to know several key things before they will part with their cash, says Mike Michell, RBC’s national director for small business.

“Help us understand why you’re so excited for the business, what specific use the money is going to, what your revenue projections are, and who is behind the business,” he says.

In these uncertain times, nobody is willing to accommodate more risk. The best solution to lowering your risk is to lower your entire operating costs.

Jiffy Self-Storage is now offering entrepreneurs and aspiring business owners the ability to conduct their businesses at bottom line rental rates with no long term commitment.

Jiffy Workspaces were built to provide entrepreneurs an affordable option, making it easier to secure business loans.

Irene and Joe have been operating a landscaping and snow removal business for 22 years. Their growth due to their success required additional working and storage space in Toronto for their landscape and snow removal business. After visiting various Toronto storage facilities, they found that Jiffy Self Storage Toronto addressed their immediate outdoor parking and indoor storage needs best and even provided huge benefits that were not even contemplated by them. By moving all their gardening and snow removal equipment from their home garage to Jiffy, they recycled their garage space for storing their fishing boat, fishing gear & snowmobiles. Their specific needs for heated storage with a security system were also addressed at Jiffy.

Green Valley Landscaping Inc. is located in Etobicoke and specializes in providing professional Toronto summer landscape maintenance services, landscape design & build, waterfalls & water features for luxury homes in Etobicoke and North York. Joe’s motto is, “NO LANDSCAPE JOB IS TOO SMALL FOR GREEN VALLEY LANDSCAPING INC.” Joe and Irene are looking forward to a banner landscape design year helping clients plan new outdoor projects and integrating natural waterfalls, outdoor lighting but early bookings are key to ensure that time will be available for this year’s projects.

They rent an economical Jiffy workplace office where their bookkeeper does their books and payroll. Jiffy Office Workspaces have heating/air conditioning and are hard wired for Internet. Having conveniences like this at Jiffy Storage Toronto allows them  more time to enjoy their home garden and greenhouse filled with annuals, perennial flora and tropical flowering trees. They have taken back their privacy and have more time to enjoy their Toronto garden and year round greenhouse since renting their small Jiffy office for their business.

Jiffy accepts deliveries for them that is much more than a convenience. It opens time for them to deal with more important business issues like prospecting for new commercial  customers in North York, Toronto and residential landscaping and snow removal clients in Toronto GTA. How many times did Irene used to sit around for an important delivery only to be told that it will be delivered tomorrow? She doesn’t sit any more. Not only do Joe and Irene have more time to better service their landscape and snow removal customers, they have more quality time to spend together now that their entire landscaping business operates efficiently from Jiffy Storage Toronto.

How small Ontario businesses are affected by HST https://www.jiffystorage.com/blog/business/what-toronto-self-storage-tenants-should-do-about-hst/ https://www.jiffystorage.com/blog/business/what-toronto-self-storage-tenants-should-do-about-hst/#respond Thu, 17 Jun 2010 20:34:01 +0000 https://www.jiffystorage.com/blog/?p=871 The majority of Ontarians are misguided about their understandings or do not have any knowledge about the impending change that is going to have a major impact on the daily lives of all Ontarians.

Most people do not know or understand how HST is going to affect them. Even though there has been much publicity about HST, from the many people we speak to everyday at our Toronto self storage facility, the majority of these persons are misguided about their understanding or do not have any knowledge about the impending changes that are going to have major impacts on the daily lives of all Ontarians.

Large businesses are ready for HST but many small companies have no idea how HST will affect them. Most businesses do not understand that they will be able to apply the full HST input credit for various costs and services so that HST will flow through for the full 13% paid out vs the 5% GST that was the permitted input prior to the first of July. This will be a bonus and is supposed to help increase the bottom line of Ontario businesses and therefore increase opportunities for investment and new jobs for Ontario. At least, that is the message that Government is trying to send out, but businesses should not believe the political line that is being circulated.

The fact is that people willing to spend money will only find that at month’s end they will have less to spend and therefore will hold back on discretionary purchases and the government promoted windfall for Ontario businesses will result in another slow down or even recession for Ontarians.

As a Toronto self storage business, we do not support this government initiative and will continue to work for changes in government policy. In order to stimulate a poor economy, there has to be a reduction of taxes, not an increase during a most critical time for the Canadian economy.

When Jiffy Self Storage tenants in Toronto will come in to pay their rents on July 1, we will apologize for the increase due entirely to new taxes and refer them to a picture of our Premier Dalton McGuinty and ask that if they have a beef about increased storage rates, instead of taking out their frustrations on us, they should contact Dalton and let their voices be heard. Jiffy Self Storage and other Toronto storage facilities can only apologize in this instance but all of us cannot sit idle. We have to stand up to those renegades on Parliament Hill.

Want to contact Dalton? You can email him at http://bit.ly/VLAFe.

If your message is private or personal, you may choose to write Dalton at the following address:

Dalton McGuinty, Premier
Legislative Building
Queen’s Park
Toronto ON M7A 1A1

…Or you can fax Dalton at (416) 325-3745….and while you’re at it, make sure that you also contact your local MPP.
