There’s no doubt that the self-storage industry has exploded within the last decade. The younger demographic continues to prefer renting and less people are purchasing homes. As a result, and a few other factors, the odds you see a self-storage facility while driving down the highway are quite high. The self-storage industry is going to continue to grow. There’s no doubt about that, but it’s going to look different.
What I’m referencing is the new idea of “backyard storage” becoming more and more popular. I understand there is always going to be a demand and preference to store things at an offsite location for some people, but backyard storage is starting to have a footprint on the industry. My Storage Great Lakes has taken on this concept and it has taken off in the Grand Rapids, MI area. More and more people prefer to have their unit dropped off to them and placed in their backyard where they have 24/7 access and security over their belongings. My Storage Great Lakes has created a maintenance-free state-of-the-art product with a manufacturing process that allows for the most affordable rental prices on the market.
People can now order their preferred size, pay a small delivery fee, and rent a storage unit from their backyard that requires no maintenance and looks incredible with the flow of their property. The safety, affordability, and convenience of this concept are what has everyone excited about My Storage Great Lakes and the future of the self-storage market.
