Rapid Self Storage in Tulare, Calif., is nearing completion on an extensive renovation project after being purchased in late 2012 by brothers Eric and Mike Fishback. Since the project began last February, the Fishbacks have painted the facility exterior, installed a taller wrought-iron fence, put in video cameras and lighting, added key-code access, improved traffic flow, and remodeled the manager’s office.
The owners also built new interior unit walls for added security and cleared bushes to open the facility’s appearance. They still have plans to improve landscaping, replace a rear fence and install roll-up doors on units.
“It was the most rundown place we had seen,” Mike Fishback said. “We had to do a lot of improvements.”
“We were able to keep all customers during the construction,” added Eric Fishback. “It was one of the biggest challenges we had.”
The Fishbacks also own Mid Valley Storage in Visalia, Calif.
