Just released, the Inside Self-Storage 2019 Top-Operators Lists rank the industry’s top 100 facility owners and top 50 third-party management companies by net rentable square feet. They include facility and brand owners, independents and property-management firms. Designed for anyone looking to buy, sell or investigate existing and potential competition, the lists include contact information, expansion plans, number of locations and units, and other key data.
The 2019 package includes both complete lists in Excel format as well as a 19-page PDF companion comprising a three-page analytical report of the list results and a full representation of the rankings in easy-to-read format. For the fifth consecutive year, the lists feature data on owned vs. managed self-storage facilities for companies that do both, with breakouts for number of facilities, units and square footage for each.
The report portion of the PDF analyzes growth, decline and general movement among this year's final list participants. It identifies companies in aggressive growth mode, notable portfolio declines, and up-and-comers in the business. It also tracks activity by the industry’s six largest players, putting their numbers in context with each other as well as the larger rankings.
