We are a society of keepers. A society of collectors. A society of treasure hunters. What do you do when you have kept, collected, and hunted more treasure than you can possibly store in your own home? The real purveyors of stuff do not see garage sales or online auctions as options. Instead, they will rent self storage units as the best solution for holding on to what they find valuable.
The storage unit industry in America generates an estimated $22 billion in revenue a year. In fact, e an estimated 2.3 billion square feet of ready to rent storage space is currently available in the U.S. alone. An estimated 172 thousand people in this country work at the estimated 52,500 storage facilities currently available.
While some people use self storage units to safely keep their collection of Aunt Dena’s china and silverware, a growing number of car collector’s see temperature controlled self storage units as havens for their most favorite car collections.
Car storage is a great option for the most serious collectors. Professional auto storage, for example, allows individuals to store their summer vehicles and motorcycles during the winter months to avoid weather related damage. Some car storage units and car storage systems even include hydraulic lifts that allow the most prolific car collectors to store two cars in the same secure car storage unit.
Many of the high quality storage unit facilities even have electronic gates for extra security. These gates and the 24 hour security cameras make sure that all customer belongings, including collector cars, are kept secure at all times. The best units are also clean, secure, and offer access all seven days a week for customer convenience.
Storing automobiles and recreational vehicles obviously frees up space on your lawn and driveway, but it also provides a temperature and humidity controlled environment to avoid rusting, and water damage to valuable automobiles. SOme of the best units have warehouse and office space that is all concrete, from the walls to the roof, so precious possessions are safer in hurricane season, and cooler in the summer.
So, collectors, keepers, and treasure hunters of the world keep doing what you do best. Keep collecting the dishes, the antiques, the books, and the classic cars that you love so much. America has enough storage space to bail you out when your house and garage are full to the brim.
