New research shows that self storage and its usage is out to change. As the average billed rent decreases the length of stay of customers is increasing.
So, is this change the direct result of the increasing affordability of self storage or is there more to it than that? With London self storage facilities providing 8 times the amount of storage provided in other cities it could be indicative of the impending and long awaited economic improvement as businesses adapt the use of their on-site space? Or maybe it is quite simply that the housing market is picking up and as it does, house sellers want to make the best impact on their viewers and are storing their non-essentials to get ahead of the competition? More likely, it's a combination of all these things being driven by the promise of rosier times ahead.
