Running a self-storage business is no walk in the park.
So many people enter this industry thinking that all they have to do is build their facility and collect passive income. What successful self-storage operators know is that it’s nowhere near that simple.
Owners and operators need to be able to focus their energy on actually operating their facilities. However, just like any business owner, it can be easy to get in the weeds with day-to-day operations and lose sight of the bigger picture. How are you setting yourself up for future success? Are you getting the insights and advice you need? Do you have an expert in your corner?
Self-storage consulting is one of the most important services to support operations, improve business, and drive profit. If you’re in the earliest stages of your business, self-storage facility consulting can help you hire architects and builders, manage construction, and advise on the design of the facility. They can also help:
- Support the brand and marketing development process, hire staff, and determine how and when your facility needs to be maintained.
- Explain the best building materials and architectural decisions that can maximize your long-term potential and make it easier to reconfigure units as needed.
- Advise on value-adds like retail and shipping operations that don't require much overhead.
