MakoRabco's, National Sales Manager, Angie Guerin was recently asked to contribute to the Inside Self Storage article, "Skilled Workers Wanted: Self-Storage Builders Face Down the Construction Labor Shortage". As an expert in the field of Self Storage development, her discernment of the situation provides clarity to an aspect of development that isn't always considered.
While the Self Storage market is booming, the hindrance of qualified labor has lead to challenges not only for the developer themselves, but also for construction companies. This can have a trickle down effect. So to gain insight from a specialist in the field, while it may not solve the problem, provides the opportunity to understand the impact.
The article also includes commentary from two of Mako’s biggest clients. West Coast Self Storage (Steve Tangney) and Get Space (Daniel Lyman).
