Getting the right storage mix for your self storage company

In the ever-evolving world of self-storage, finding the right components for your perfect storage solution is crucial for maximising both customer satisfaction and business efficiency. As the demand for self storage grows, it is essential for companies to maximise their space within their facilities. At JUST MCP we have a wealth of experience fitting out self storage units. Whether you project is a new build or a conversion project we have to knowledge and skill to be able to complete it to the highest standard.

 

Why is it important to do your research?

 

Before planning out your self storage building you will need to carry out in-depth research. This could include looking at similar storage warehouses already operating in the local vicinity, looking at self-storage contractors’ websites to see how they have carried out past projects and looking into the local target audience for self-storage facilities. Looking into the target audience and local area can determine the amount of each size unit you were to install throughout the facility.

For example, if you are in an area where there are a lot of trading shops, they might want extra space to hold stock and there for would be looking for medium sized storage units to store that extra stock. In that case you would install more of the medium sized storage units in that self storage facility to accommodate those customers. However, it is also important to weigh up both the pros and cons of heavily leaning to one target audience as this may let you down for the long term business plan.

 

Planning and design:

 When it comes to designing your floor plan and planning out the installation of your self-storage unit, it is important to think about a few key factors:

 

Mezzanine flooring hight and weight loading limits

 

Designed specifically for self storage applications, our mezzanine floors are designed and installed to last. We have a wide range of mezzanine flooring types accompanied by floorboards, handrails and staircases tailored specifically to your requirements.

All mezzanine floors are manufactured and designed to withstand weight loading and offer the legal requirements of fire protection.

 

Types of partition walls and self-storage doors

 

Self-storage portioning is created from durable steel sheeting to provide a solid structure that can with-stand a variety of different bumps and knocks as well as general wear and tear.

Unit doors (swing and roller) are also available in a range of different colours and sizes to fit your requirements.

 

Storage access – staircases and lift shafts

 

Self-storage facilities will need both lifts and staircases to each floor. At JUST MCP we can provide a range of different staircases to fit the requirements for your building. We also partner with different companies who can install quality assured lifts to provide a secure and efficient way for your customers to move their belongings between floors.

 

Offices and receptions

 

When owning a customer-facing business it is just as important to think about aesthetic with a well-designed reception area. Having a contractor that can carry out this work in conjunction with the self storage units makes it a quicker and easier process for you and your business. At JUST MCP we can do just this. We are proficient with office fit-outs including glass partition walls, acoustic suspended ceilings and much more.
