Any advice out there for starting a storage business using shipping storage containers?
I've never seen a storage business that utilized shipping containers but think it would work out. Just put a couple rows of them on a piece of property and there ya go. These are fairly inexpensive for used ones ($1500 to $3000) So they would eventually get paid off. You would probably want to paint them all the same color for cosmetic purposes. And you could just keep adding containers as needed.
Thanks John, I appreciate the advice.
I have 70 shipping containers in a variety of door configurations that I use in addition to my standard self storage building. I prefer them as they are water tight and don't require building permits. I buy the 1 trip new units and use the metal walls from insta container to make the sizes I want for the 20ft double doors on both ends for 2-10ft units or 8ft and 12ft. I also have some 40ft with 6 side doors and 4 side doors for the perimeter of my property to block snow and wind. Just depends on your location if appropriate with zoning
