With low operating costs and high demand, it's no surprise that self-storage has been recognized as a lucrative investment opportunity.

Location is Key

Look for areas with high demand and low competition, such as growing suburban communities or urban areas with limited storage options. Additionally, consider the accessibility of the location for potential customers. Facilities located near major highways or busy intersections tend to have higher occupancy rates and therefore, higher returns.

Utilize Technology

Investing in a user-friendly website and online booking system can attract more customers and increase occupancy rates. Additionally, implementing smart technology such as security cameras and keyless entry systems can improve the overall customer experience and give your facility a competitive edge.

Offer Additional Services

Consider offering add-ons such as climate-controlled units, packing and moving supplies, or even truck rental services. These additional services not only increase revenue, but also make your facility more attractive to potential customers.

Prioritize Customer Satisfaction

Happy customers are more likely to stay for longer periods and refer others to your facility. By providing exceptional customer service, you can build a loyal customer base and reduce vacancy rates. This, in turn, leads to higher occupancy rates and increased returns on your investment.
