3 Ways Pre-engineered Buildings Help Mini Storage Facilities Attract Clients

Pre-engineered buildings can be used to create appealing mini storage compounds that’ll attract a loyal customer base.

The key to success in business is a repeat customer base. In the case of a mini storage company, that means attracting renters who are willing to stow their excess personal belongings month after month, and year after year. Well-built pre-engineered buildings will allow you to develop a loyal clientele for a number of reasons.

It all starts with presenting a welcoming, user-friendly compound that your customers will feel comfortable with. Once you have that, you’ll be well on your way to a thriving business. 

A Positive Visual Presence

Have you ever driven by a ramshackle mini storage compound and said to yourself: ‘I think I might call them up to see if they have room for our leather sectional.’ Chances are you drove right on by and didn’t give it a second thought. And so you should.

Reputable mini storage companies aim to maintain a clean facility that’s inviting to the public. This could include:

  • Landscaping along the road frontage and sidewalks
  • Well-kept storage buildings
  • Clearly marked driving lanes
  • Prominent company sign with contact information
  • Ample customer parking

People driving by will notice this attention to detail, so the upkeep is worth it. Pre-engineered buildings are ideal for this because they require minimal maintenance. An annual walkthrough will keep you informed of any required servicing the building might need.

A Safe, Secure Compound

In addition to convenient storage space, mini storage companies sell peace of mind. Clients don’t want to be burdened with the thought that their belongings are susceptible to:

  • Inclement weather
  • Rodents
  • Thieves

It’s essential that these storage buildings be built to a high standard to neutralize any of the above threats. When installed properly by professionals, pre-engineered buildings offer great protection from all three. 

Simple, yet durable, metal roofing systems are effective at keeping the contents of a mini storage facility dry and secure, no matter the weather conditions. It’s also possible to construct insulated spaces to provide heated storage for items that require it.

The precision design that goes into prefab buildings makes it possible to seal out rodents. Plus, the sturdy build quality offers a significant deterrent to would-be thieves.

Ease of Use

Modern mini storage compounds are built with the customer in mind. Part of that includes designing them to provide ease of access and egress. Many customers will visit your facility with a trailer in tow, so ensuring there’s adequate turnaround space is critical. 

Pre-engineered buildings allow you to preplan how the site will be used for maximum profit, while guaranteeing customer satisfaction.
