WHAT IS SELF STORAGE?
The self storage industry is very well established, and has grown steadily over the last 40 years. It is now a significant industry throughout the USA, Australasia, Asia, and more recently Europe and the Middle East.
The self storage concept is to provide lockable space to domestic and business users. These users control the space themselves using their own lock and key. 24hr security is provided with CCTV cameras and access control systems to enter the building.
Space is typically rented out under rolling monthly contracts, to suit the user’s needs. The attraction of self storage as a business is it’s a simple, straightforward design and fitout process which can be completed quickly and inexpensively.
The key factors to successfully building and operating a self storage facility are layout, location, and marketing.

It may well be if you have underutilised space, or are looking for a strong cashflow business with low staffing needs.
