The last time I used a mini-storage for a shop, i was living on my boat. I took advantage of the height of the mini-storage. I built a 2nd floor about 7 foot high in the back 8' of the shop. That way I wouldnt lose any floor space. I stored misc parts and some boat stuff in the rear section. Anyway, I had made a ladder to get on the "roof" of the enclosure I built the building roof was about 6 feet or so above my head. I hooked up a pulley system from the steel structure overhead and permanently hung a pallet from the pulleys. The pallet had straps on all four corners hoouked up to the pulley system. I was easily able to hoist 150 Lbs on the pallet. You might consider a pallet with spreaders hooked up to the pulley. Will make hoisting a heck of a lot easier.
