Embracing Mixed-Use Self-Storage Development in Scotland

“The drive-up accessibility is attractive to domestic customers, as they only need to unload once, from their car to their unit. The studio space allows industrial businesses to locate themselves on site, right next to their storage, saving them travel expenses and time,” Sutherland says.

The office spaces begin at 150 square feet and are fully furnished. Conference facilities, meeting rooms, a communal kitchen and lounge are also included in the month-to-month lease.

“We strived for quality offices at our site and found that businesses are jumping at getting their own space as the area is well-connected but previously didn’t have many offices of this quality,” Gifford says.   

Future Growth 

So what’s ahead for Storage Vault? The operator has seven developments in the pipeline, including projects in Edinburgh and Glasgow, Scotland. One of the ventures will combine self-storage with a drive-through Starbucks, a first of its kind in the city. The businesses would be built near the M74 highway on a property at Polmadie Road. Project approval is expected shortly, Sutherland says.

Using the Cambuslang facility as a guide, the company is open to meeting the needs of the customers in each individual market, no matter what they might be. “We can only improve on site to site from what we have learned at Cambuslang,” McAteer says.  

Founded in 2015, Storage Vault opened its first storage facility in Paisley, Scotland. It draws on 15 years of experience in commercial property to deliver a safe, secure and easy self-storage service. For more information, e-mail, visit
