People need to save and safely store important items. The Dead Sea Scrolls survived through the ages packed inside clay jars. By the late 1800’s there was a rapid population explosion in America. Better jobs meant more expanding treasures that grew out of the confines of bigger homes.
The modern, fast paced lifestyle introduced entertainment devices like satellite televisions and cell phones. There is always a new electronic device and a greater need to store the rapidly outdated versions.
Tin Sheds in Graveled Parking Lots
The first storage units were undersized sheds and portable buildings. Constructed of tin, their popularity grew quickly as these buildings became mandatory rentals for excess stuff.
One in 10 families were estimated by economists to have a need for storage units by the year 2012. The early parking lots with rental sheds progressed to luxurious landscaped real estate adventures with climate controlled spaces.
What to Expect
Storage space that is open 24 hours a day and 365 days is popular and in great demand. Driving right up to the unit or having access to walk-up stairs or an elevator is convenient for busy lifestyles. In some cases the client has the only key. Security cameras and guards keep the perimeters patrolled. Theft is rare in the more costly rental areas.
Boats, Motorcycles and RVs
Outdoor rental spaces for boats or RVs opens new worlds for seasonal sports equipment. These items are no longer crowded into the back yard. Everyone has excess stuff today. The goal is in keeping it in excellent condition.
Climate Controlled Convenience for Extra Cost
A climate controlled storage rental unit is the answer to storing valuable VHS recorded “home-video” tapes. This type of space keeps sensitive items at a necessary temperature.
The enclosed space resists dust and humidity. Mold and mildew is not a problem. Pests are excluded also. Costly electronics are safe in this type of rental. Multiple objects benefit from this type of storage:
- Computers, printers and copy machines
- DVD players and recorders
- All types of cameras, including security articles
- Video games and discs
- Grandma’s antique china cabinet
Customers are willing to pay the monthly fee. You may even rent more than one space to house your constant purchases. Storage buildings are here to stay and the demand is growing.
