6 Reasons Why Storage is Trending Right Now

Self-storage is trending. Here are six reasons why storage is a smart option right now. 

The private business sector continues to be the major source of self-storage income. Self-storage companies recognise the need for storage. Self-storage has become a cost-effective option for many businesses.  

More business owners are using self-storage as an alternative. They use this to expanding or renting more space. Owners of self-storage understand the need to make the private business a priority while keeping in mind the needs of individuals needing storage space.  

Why is Self-Storage Trending Right Now? 

1. Downsizing.  

Baby boomers are reaching the ages of 60 to 64 years. There has been a marked increase in the need for storage by this group of individuals. This results from people selling their homes. It is also a result of people moving into smaller and more secure communities.  

Downsizing is one of the major reasons to rent storage units. They say the baby boomer generation’s storage needs will increase for the next fifteen years. Investing in storage units is showing a distinct increase in returns 

2. Security.

We protect your goods by using surveillance cameras. We store your goods in a dry, secure environment.

We bring the unit, will pack your unit (or you can do this should you prefer). Once packed, we take the unit back to our warehouse, and you get to keep the key.  

3. Technology.  

Use remote technology to check your unit. Everyone is doing it. They are monitoring their homes and watching babysitters away from home. If safety is key to you using a storage unit, this one is for you.  

You can do remote monitoring from anywhere. You can see what’s happening inside your unit anytime from anywhere. All you need to do is to log in to see that everything is as it should be.

Flexible storage is essential during uncertain times. We see the need for shorter rentals. This is as the economic landscape continues to shift. We offer rentals for short- and long-term units, which is important.  

COVID-19 has made us think in a different way. We are uncertain about what will happen from one day to the next. Businesses are closing shop and downsizing; individuals are moving or downsizing. There are many bargains in the housing market.  

Amongst all this, there is room for movement and change. We often find ourselves with excess items and extra furniture that we are not quite ready to sell.
