Businesses of all types and sizes in Mauritius can benefit from using self-storage facilities. For example, self-storage is a secure, affordable solution for offsite document storage and for storing equipment, inventory and more.

Consider how self-storage might help your business.

Document storage

Business owners are required to keep a range of original records, from documents relating to the establishment of their businesses to tax records, financial reports and contracts with customers. These documents can pile up quickly.

Instead of wasting valuable office space, keep archived documentation in self-storage. You can also store removable hard drives and other data storage devices in this way, to protect the data they contain.

As well as reducing clutter, keeping documents offsite has security benefits. In a clean, dry, locked self-storage unit, your documents will be safe from tampering, loss or damage.

Retail merchandise storage

If you have a retail shop that holds a lot of stock but your premises are getting cramped, a self-storage unit is ideal. You can store inventory safely and securely until it's necessary to restock.

This is generally a much cheaper option than renting warehouse space.

Your storage unit is accessible at all times, so you can restock your shop when it suits you.

Catering and restaurant storage

A self-storage unit is ideal for storing catering equipment when it's not in use. The unit is clean, dry and secure – you keep the key to the unit, and our facilities are protected by 24-hour CCTV monitoring.

Self-storage is also ideal for restaurant owners, often may buy items in bulk if there's a special on or if it works out cheaper that way.

Rental on premises suitable for a restaurant tends to be high, so most restaurants have the minimum space required. Using a storage unit eliminates the problem of having to store bulk supplies in the restaurant kitchen or back office.

Along with excess non-perishable foods, such as bulk tinned produce or wine, you can store seasonal decorations or patio furniture until you need them again.

Online store/ e-commerce storage

E-commerce businesses do their trading online, but they still need physical space to store their merchandise.

Self-storage units are an ideal option for storing stock close to key areas where most of your customers are located. This can allow for faster, cheaper deliveries – without requiring that you set up physical branches in each location.

Self-storage is also useful for storing supplies. Even small-scale manufacturers such as artists or crafters can store their excess raw materials until they need them.

Temporary storage

If you're moving offices or your office building is being renovated, you may need to store office furniture, equipment and supplies temporarily. With Multibox’s flexible rental terms, you can rent a storage unit for a short amount of time, with no hidden costs or penalties.

Contractor or builder storage

Given that they work largely at external sites, the majority of building contractors don’t bother with physical business premises or workshops.

However, many builders and building contractors keep materials, tools and equipment they might need for their jobs. These can seriously clutter up homes and garages – and may be at risk of theft.

A storage unit is ideal for storing building materials and equipment that wouldn't be safe left in a truck or on a client’s property. This is also a good option for specialised equipment that's used only rarely.

Valet storage

If your business needs storage but not on a scale big enough to warrant a large storage unit, valet storage is the ideal option. You can store paperwork or other office items on a per box basis rather than renting a full unit.

The service also includes collection and delivery of the goods that need to be stored, making it extremely convenient.
