Inside Self-Storage (ISS) has released a new gallery to assist facility owners through their development process. “Critical Components to Self-Storage Feasibility” offers guidance on evaluating potential land parcels and storage projects before committing to an investment. It addresses important decision-making factors, such as the site and surrounding area, upfront costs, potential competition and long-term expenses.
Content for the resource was provided by Bob Copper, owner of Self Storage 101, a consulting firm specializing in self-storage. With decades of experience, Copper has worked with hundreds of owners and managers to provide due-diligence services, operational audits and training. He’ll be a featured speaker at the upcoming Inside Self-Storage World Expo, April 3-6, at the Paris Hotel & Resort in Las Vegas. He’ll participate in an education seminar titled “Landmine-Aversion Therapy: How to Avoid Detonating Your Self-Storage Dream” on April 4 and present the Owner/Operator Executive Workshop on April 6.
The new gallery is available for viewing and free download from the ISS Resource Center, which can be found on the website’s main menu.
For more than 27 years, ISS has provided informational resources for the self-storage industry. Its educational offerings include ISS magazine, the annual ISS World Expo, an extensive website, the ISS Store, and Self-Storage Talk, the industry’s largest online community.
