First-time self-storage developers Jeff and Sandi Hunter are happy to see the completion of their 100,000-square-foot Vault Self Storage facility in Surprise, Ariz., especially in this economy. As the owners of Hunter Engineering in Scottsdale, Ariz., the couple had purchased 5.5 acres with the intent of building office condos. When the office market started looking bleak, they decided to diversify, Sandi said, and began investigating the self-storage market.
Vault Self Storage, at 13360 W. Willow Ave., offers packing and moving supplies, video surveillance, unit alarms, online payment options and more.
