Please read the following sections for more details

Optimise your self-storage operation

We would look at various aspects of your self‑storage operation to give you a recommendation for optimisation. Things we would look at include:

Overall yield of your facility
Yield per storage space
Rental rates per storage space
Space mix and reconfiguration
Electrical design
Marketing

Reconfiguration and electrical design

We will make recommendations on all of the above items, but reconfiguration and self‑storage electrical design are where we’d be most involved should there be a requirement for change.

If some of your self‑storage units aren’t renting as well as expected, we can reconfigure them for you. We’ll take your original space mix design as a basis. We’ll then re‑design it using the information from our assessment and optimise it, i.e. you may need smaller or larger unit

  • Have lights and fans linked to your self-storage access control system and turn them on only along the corridors leading to the self-storage unit that is being accessed.
  • Have lights and fans controlled by motion sensors and they will turn on as customers walk along the corridors.
  • Air conditioning can be put on a timer to operate only during opening hours. This does not apply to wine storage, which needs 24-hour air conditioning.

Self‑storage electrical design

You can reduce costs with an energy saving electrical design. By saving money, you’ll optimise your operation even more. There are a number of ways to save on electricity:
