Self-storage units have become notorious for being abandoned while still full. Though some may see possible treasures, self-storage managers just see junk.
And there lies the problem: what to do with all the “junk” that didn’t turn out to be valuable? That’s when you need a good storage unit cleanout.
For most people in the U.S. having too much stuff is a problem. In fact, most of us are inundated with excess personal belongings, so we’ve turned storage unit rentals into an almost 40 million dollar industry.
The Rise of Self-Storage in the U.S.
The self-storage industry has exploded over the past few years, with close to 60,000 facilities in America and 1.7 billion square feet of space available for rentable storage units all across the nation. That’s about 5.4 square feet per person!
When the Tenant’s Gone But Their Stuff Isn’t
Storage facility managers are often left with the responsibility of cleaning up after tenants who did not clean out their units before they moved. This is a real problem for self storage owners, as the work usually falls on them to get all that junk cleaned and hauled away in order to be disposed of properly.
Sometimes auctions are held to sell some of it off- but not everything will get sold at an auction so even if there’s an action going on, someone still has to take care of discarded possessions and anything else unsold during the sale.
In most cases, abandoned storage units are to be considered a lost cause. The task of clearing them out falls on the facility manager who is left with an impossible job: renting these units again and making sure that they’re clear enough for potential renters’ needs. And sometimes, just getting all this junk out can become complicated as well!
The average self-storage unit is anything but spacious. If the building isn’t built for large storage spaces, then you’re going to have trouble even fitting in furniture that’s already moved over from your home.
