Opening up a storage facility in Ontario can be a very trying experience for the beginners. If you already own several properties that sell Cundles storage units you may be familiar with everything that goes into opening up a new facility. There are a lot of things to consider. You must decide the location of your new property very carefully. The location will determine if a customer will store with you or not in a lot of cases. You also need to know what types of Cundles storage units to offer. If you just offer a bunch of units that nobody wants, then you will have trouble getting rentals.
You should know what Cundles storage units people will want. If you are trying to appeal to customers in a rural setting, then you should have the bigger spaces as your featured units. If you are in a more populated area, then you should focus on smaller spaces like a five by five. Five by fives are very popular in metropolitan areas because people just do not have enough space for smaller items. They may need to store holiday decorations or snow tires when they are not in use. Since apartments in Ontario in populated areas can be very small in terms of square footage, these spaces will fill up pretty fast. They will fill up faster if you offer move in specials. This is a good idea since these customers will tend to look for more long term rentals.
You will also need to focus on bigger Cundles storage units if you are appealing to rural customers. You should offer garage size spaces. A ten by fifteen is about the size of just a small garage and can hold about a two bedroom apartment. This is great for a lot of customers who are looking to clean out a garage or a basement. A storage space will allow them to have a place to sort through everything while getting the instant benefit of extra room at their home. A ten by twenty or a ten by thirty can store a whole house and is good for customers who might be going through a foreclosure.
Climate controlled Cundles storage units are becoming more and more popular. Make sure to offer the option or renting a standard unit, as well because not all customers will want to pay the extra monthly rent to have their space temperature controlled. For example, a customer that is storing snow tires will not need to have a space that is climate controlled. The customer that is storing a whole house might like to have a temperature controlled space.
You can also offer outside parking spaces. This is great for customers who have to put their bigger vehicles somewhere for a while. You will be able to rent these spaces out to customers who are storing boats, trailers, and RVs. If you really want to attract RV customers, you should put in wash bays and dumping stations at your facility. Some boat and RV customers may prefer to have inside spaces that are protected from the weather. Instead of building individual units of that size, you could just build on huge building that offered warehouse style parking to these customers. A valet service for bigger vehicles is always a big hit with customers.
