  • More Commercial Renters

    Many businesses have either shut down or at least slowed down, and need space to store inventory and furniture. Have you seen an increase in commercial customers since the pandemic began?

    I am not likely to see that here simply because 6x9 is the largest space I have available, and mostly on 2nd or 3rd floor. Businesses need large spaces and don't want the hassle of elevators!

      Like MD, I get calls all the time from commercial businesses but my biggest available unit right now is a 5x10. Anything bigger is full and the waiting list is long for them.

        I do have one tenant who is considering shutting down his brick & mortar showroom and possibly increasing the size of his storage unit. He was considering this before the covid-19 situation as walk-in traffic was a very small part of his business anyway, decreased business is causing him to accelerate these plans to save money.

          Unless this pandemic causes the pattern to turn, I love commercial renters because they typically pay in advance or on time and pay multiple months in advance. No problems because they understand a business. I wish my whole facility was commercial, seniors, first responders and military.

            I have a few who are thinking about it. They are closing the doors on their business and trying to sell all their inventory and displays and whatnot. They are hoping to not need any storage. Normally I would be thrilled to have them bc like Pac, I value the commercial customers. Never an issue, always pay early, etc.. I am saddened by the events that are causing these business owners to have to seek storage. Im not saying I would turn them down, just unfortunate they have to make those choices.

              We are in a very rural area so not too many business around us, and what is around us is mostly restaurants, a little grocery store, and a gas station. So I don't expect that will change, our ratio of business customers. Happy to say we are getting more rentals again tho! Was getting worried there for a bit...
