Renew. Restore. Revive. There comes a point when all facilities will need a polish, shine, upgrade, or improvement. Keeping your facility up to date will allow you to stay competitive at a time when customers have a variety of self-storage choices. Renovation can reap a variety of benefits. Notably, renovating your facility will catch the discerning eye of customers while allowing you to reevaluate your rental fee structure and help to increase your property value.
Depending on the type of self-storage facility, renovations can be many, varied and unique. Some components of a facility that may need renovation include replacing the metal roof, replacing doors, reskinning hallways, enhancing technology, and repairing the asphalt on the property.
If you’re wondering where to begin, don’t take on this task alone. When it’s time to renovate, you will be well served to call upon an industry expert to evaluate your site from top to bottom and everything in between. In other words, from the entrance to exit. An experienced consultant will consider both the aesthetics and functionality of your facility and determine which components need upgrading and which need replacing.
Consider renovation: Stay relevant. Stay competitive. Stay in the game.
