Thinking of investing in the self storage industry?

Did you know that the self storage industry has increased turnover and profit over the last 2 years? If you didn't, it is understandable considering that in today's economy it has become increasingly difficult for some business sectors to show signs of increased turnover. However, this is not the case with the self storage sector.

Since the end of 2014, self storage has managed to turnover £402 million amongst more than 400 operators, which is an 4.42% increase from the £385 million that was recorded the previous year. With the industry showing increasingly encouraging signs, it could be the perfect time for you to convert and install some self storage units either into an unused building or any building you currently have, such as an outhouse, with the help of PSL. By building your own storage centre you open up a huge avenue of benefits and you give yourself the opportunity to earn a great deal of revenue, which can't be all bad.


Important things to know before investing

The possibilities that come with owning a Self Storage centre are vast due to the fact more and more people are looking to own their own storage venture. Here is a list of some of the benefits of operating your own facility:

  • Low facility maintenance - With storage units there will be low customer traffic and they will be maintenance free so office staff can cover the minimal housing duties.
  • Allows you to use underutilised space - Make money on spare space that you have within a facility by using Self Storage.
