Self-Storage Facilities – Simple, But Every Unit Requires Electricity

Some claim that owning a self-storage facility is a simple business that requires little input after the building is built. Attracting ideal tenants makes it a little easier to enjoy the benefits of passive income that comes with storage facility ownership. There are many ways to seek those great tenants but climate-controlled units, drive-up units, shelving, electricity, and electrical outlets would definitely help.

4 Reasons to Put Electrical Power in Your Storage Facility’s Units

Deciding to add electrical power to your facility’s units requires a little thought. To help determine if wiring individual storage units makes sense for your business consider the following:

  1. Give Tenants a Place to Recharge Batteries: Some tenants may use your climate-controlled units to store ATVs, RVs, antique cars, or other types of vehicles that may need a charge. Having in-unit electricity provides them with easy access to recharge batteries for their items.
  2. Open Opportunities for Business Owners: Finding a place to store inventory, tools, and equipment or even run some day-to-day business tasks can be difficult and expensive. Often, these small business owners utilize storage for excess inventory or to fulfill orders. Contractors may need additional, cost-effective space for equipment and to work on small projects.
  3. Climate-controlled Units: Warping, fading and melting due to heat can damage items that are typically placed in storage, like furniture. Customers that need to store items requiring cool temperatures will appreciate storage units with climate-control capabilities.  
  4. Entice the Hobbyist: Depending on the hobby space can be an issue in the home. Having an area to which you can go eases the tension found in the clutter some hobbies create. For example various collections, photography, or videography can require a lot of space that a hobbies living in a small home or apartment may not have. With electricity in their unit, the hobbyist can get away and not tie up precious space at home to store their hobby tools.
