Consumers Crave Convenience: How Storage Solutions Can Help

Many people choose ease over price, opting for simplicity during tough times. Let's look at how storage adds convenience.
Let’s face it, storage adds convenience. The storage industry has adapted and grown to meet evolving consumer needs. Now, more than ever, the key to success is to simplify things. We’ve found that many people choose ease over price, opting for simplicity during tough times.  

Yes, the pandemic brought lockdowns, sickness, death and economic woes. Businesses endured supply chain struggles and freight hikes. Plus, we’ve seen labor shortages, and The Great Resignation. Through it all, the storage industry has persevered. With the growing demand for space (think: the 6 feet and then some), there has been a consistent need for storage. By supplying simple space solutions, we’ve become convenience-makers. Not to mention, we bring ease to the consumer.

CONVENIENCE – Convenient procedures, products and services are those intended to increase ease in accessibility, save resources (such as time, effort, and energy) and decrease frustration.

It doesn’t matter whether the economy is up or down, storage is a necessity. Storage solutions can simplify lives. In other words, we add convenience. Rental rates at self-storage facilities across our nation remain high. And storage facilities continue to need more room. I’d say we’re in the right business!

Even after 2 years of the pandemic, there is an ongoing need for storage. For example, with more people working from home, there is more demand for storage to make room for home offices. People are relocating now more than ever, too. Consumers looking for a storage solution want one that’s easy and convenient. And they can find it with the flexibility and ease of relocatable self-storage and portable storage units.
Over the past couple of years, we have seen how the storage industry is a great example of where adaptability is strong. You see portable storage solutions used in their normal, useful ways. For instance, they are in people’s yards for home construction. Units sit on driveways for on-site storage or relocation. And, they’re located at worksites for equipment storage and at homes damaged by water, fire, or mold. But portables have become so much more, and people are getting creative with how they use them! 
Boxwell offers convenient storage solutions. So, what’s so convenient about portable and relocatable storage? People need a secure, weather-proof place to put their things. Whether it’s a drive up, relocatable self-storage unit, or a portable storage container brought directly to consumer, Boxwell meets their customers’ needs. 

“We have seen an increased need for relocatable/portable units recently as business owners find more creative ways to diversify and create more storage offerings for their customers.”

Consumers want a trouble-free experience. Storage facilities have innovated virtual meetings and tours for customers. And operators have stepped up to install contactless reservations and entry systems. In addition, there are many automated processes throughout storage. Operators can use storage software for contracts, delivery, and billing. All of this translates to simplified customer transactions. Throughout the pandemic, the need for storage continued to increase. And consumers won’t be giving up their new-found conveniences any time soon. In conclusion, storage operators need to keep up with the momentum and demand. And storage manufacturers need to supply solutions. Today, our country may be in tough economic times, but the resiliency of our industry and the need for convenience are steadfast.
