Diversification in to the Self Storage Market

In this blog I will be explaining briefly about how to incorporate a great strategy to enter into a new exciting market or industry which could work alongside your existing business very well indeed. So if you are looking to maximise the income from your existing business, choosing the self storage industry option could be your answer.

So, what is self-storage?

Self Storage is a scenario where you build rooms of differing sizes within a building and grant exclusive access to one of those storage unit to the general public or local business whereby they are the only ones to hold the key. It is vital that the building is clean, dry and secure and after that, what the tenant does with the unit is up-to them - to a certain extent of course!

Why choose self-storage diversification?

People with existing buildings or businesses who want to earn additional income can use their empty space by turning it into a self storage facility. Self storage can be run side by side, using existing staff and administrative systems so the start up costs remain low, whilst the potential returns are high.

An example of company types who offer self-storage within their buildings include removals companies, farmers, petrol stations, distribution warehouses, transport and logistics companies - in fact, anyone with spare space in their existing building!

As you can imagine, self-storage is a fast developing industry, so in order to succeed in the self storage industry, you'll need to know how to beat the competition!
