Facility makeover projects are on the rise. And with the new year approaching, we all know that this is a great time to start setting goals. And taking care of your investments should be on your to-do list. In the storage industry, that means taking care of your storage units. And if you want to make some upgrades, now it the time. So, how do you tackle a facility makeover? It feels like everyone is either remodeling or fixing up their homes and businesses. Storage facilities can simply focus on maintenance, upgrades to security, and curb appeal.
Unless you have a brand-new storage facility, you probably have a project in mind. Aging properties need upkeep, maintenance, and improvement. And facility makeovers are easy, especially with storage units that can be moved and placed anywhere. Luckily, Boxwell never stops improving with new size options, materials, and features. Just this past year, we started manufacturing 10′ x 20′ relocatable self-storage units. With a variety of sizes and customizations available, you can choose what works best for your facility.
One of the first things to assess when you’re considering a facility makeover is the condition of your doors. You may need to touch up the paint on doors that still operate. Or you may want to replace older doors that no longer function. Consider upgrading to roll-up doors if you don’t already have them. These can protect the contents of your storage units in harsh weather. Old, rusty doors can project a bad image for your facility. On top of that, they may even pose a safety risk. Opting for a fresh aesthetic upgrade, such as color-matched rollup doors, is an easy way to give your facility a fresh look. It’s also easy to update your doors with entry systems that work with mobile devices for better security and functionality.
Facility makeovers also include technology. We are in a competitive industry (who isn’t?). To keep up with technology, owners are updating storage facilities with new wireless entry and locking systems. With these systems, you can keep gates secure and give easy, hands-free access to customers. To gain and keep tenants, it’s important to provide them with peace of mind that their property will be safe. Cameras, gates, and keypads make customers feel safe and will enhance the value of your self-storage facility. Take security to the next level by adding live video streaming cameras so that you can watch over your business from anywhere. These improvements will add to the appeal of your business and give you a much-needed facility makeover
The exterior is another area to consider when updating your storage facility. If you have room for landscaping, keep bushes, trees and lawn trimmed. Be sure to check for un-groomed landscaping, chipped paint, and rusted fencing. Do unit walls have any dings or defects? Add a fresh coat of paint and replace old metal siding to show potential renters that you care about your facility and their belongings. Don’t forget to repaint the stripes in your parking lot. Believe it or not, this is one of the first things potential renters see. These small renovations will improve the appearance of your facility and amplify curb appeal.
By their very nature, storage units are meant to protect their contents. If you are considering a facility makeover, be sure that your storage units are manufactured to keep items safe from the elements. Boxwell’s relocatable storage units are wind, water, and rodent proof. We offer a protection from all the elements. As a result, your items are safe.
