Hey Jim, My Storage unit website.
« on: August 03, 2006, 10:14:50 PM »
Jim, (and anyone else who may be interested).

Since we were talking about this in the other thread last night I thought I may as well post a link so you could see them.

http://storagemaxstorage.net/

The pictures aren't great, I need to take some better ones now. When we took those it was winter and the grass and trees didn't look so hot, so we just got the buildings. It doesn't show the building with the offices and the Tool and Die shop either. One of these days we'll add more to the website like pictures of the inside of some units.

I'll take a 10x10 for 3 months :biggrin:

That's great, thanks for the link. So let me ask you. Do you get much business off the site?....or does most of it come locally?

And, how big of a town or city is Clinton?

I've been contemplating this for a couple of years now. I think another draw back for me would be, I don't live in what they call a city or a town.....but a village. With a population of 701. I must be the 1 :biggrin:

I might have to look into setting up in a surrounding town.

I'd love to have a setup like that. There's a few like it along the outskirts of this town but to own would be, IMO, quite lucrative. That's a good investment consideration fer damn sure.

That's a nice looking business you got there Yellowdog. I've watched a few of these storage businesses and most seem to be pretty successful. I would think that onsite management would be one of the most important requirement for a successful rental enterprise. I noticed you said you had an office in one of the buildings. I know location is also important with most real estate deals but I don't think it is that important with this type business? Could you give us any suggestions as to what you would do different if you did it again and why?

You've done good for yourself Lee.
You've done something that I have considered attempting for quite some time. It's the initial leap that I keep second guessing.

I'm forty years old and self employed, it time I get off the fence and decide how I'd like to supplement any income I might have when my children start handing me grand kids.

It's good to know that I know someone into this storage if I need to ask some questions.

Thanks for the information Lee. I'm also interested in something like this. I've watched alot of different ones and they all seem to keep it going. How do you structure your payments of the  initial costs with the bank? Do you mortgage it or pay off as you are able?
