Self storage has seen a very definite rise over the years and it is one of the few businesses that didn’t suffer during the pandemic. If you’re looking for self storage our storage to rent Calne is perfect for you.
The rise and growth within the self storage industry is being seen world wide, with the United States seeing the valuation of the self storage market rising to $87.65 billion and this is only the start. It is estimated that it is going to rise to $115.62 billion by 2025.
But what has caused this stratospheric rise within the self storage industry?
There are many factors which have contributed to this rise, including the formation and growth of more urban areas and lifestyle changes brought about by the pandemics and lockdowns.
Rise in urbanisation
The global rise in urbanisation with more and more housing being built to cater to the ever-growing population has led to housing becoming smaller, with the average floor area of a UK home decreasing by 16% over the last five years.
People who rent are also seeing an increase in how much rent they have to pay due to a shortage in rented housing and the growing population leading to people having to choose to rent smaller places. This leads to them not having enough space to house all their belongings.
Having less space is causing people to have to decide what to do with their belongings. Just because something doesn’t fit within their current home doesn’t mean it is something they want to completely part with. This is leading to more and more people choosing to use self storage.
The pandemic and the multiple lockdowns brought on a lot of changes for many people. Some of those changes were fueled by the growing feeling that life was too short and precious not to do the things you want to do.
Now we are back to being free to go travelling, many people are packing up their things and going to see the world, choosing to live a nomadic life for a while and cherishing their rediscovered freedom.
There has been a major rise in the number of people choosing to have an adult gap year with many seeing it as a way to forget their day to day worries and have a reset with many people choosing new career paths and lives when they arrive back home.
This is all leading to the rise in self storage use as people need a place to store all of their belongings when they go travelling.
Businesses have been using self storage for years but recent years have led to many businesses having to change in order to survive.
Many have decided to leave behind their brick and mortar shops and become online businesses which is leading to them losing their stockrooms.
Furthermore, the pandemic brought about people working from home and many businesses are choosing to continue to offer home working as an option for their employees. This is leading to them being able to save money as they no longer have to rent large office spaces but they do need to find somewhere to store their office items.
This has also led to an increase in self storage use around the world.
