Self Storage in Manila: Mini Storage Warehouse Industry EXPLODES in the Philippines with SafeHouse
The Self Storage or Warehousing market has exploded in the Philippines!
Reports indicate that the Self Storage (also known as Mini Storage) Industry in the United States made over 12 Billion Dollars in 2013. It seems that people are getting more and more stuff, and loving it all too much to let it go!
On the other hand, here in the Philippines, the first and biggest self storage warehouse facility actually started by accident.
Brothers Mark and Carlo Coronel were helping out their mom store her office files. She apparently had way too much and needed extra space to store all the excess documents and materials. This is where the brothers came up with the idea to cut their bigger warehouses into smaller sections and rent out the mini storage spaces.
“We found that the demand was definitely there for self storage in the Philippines,” said Carlo Coronel.
Apparently, there are a lot of Filipinos who have needed the self storage service in Manila but just did not have any options. SafeHouse Self Storage’s clients vary, from OFW’s leaving behind some stuff, to condo owners renting out their places but needed somewhere to keep excess furniture that tenants did not want. The self storage warehouses of SafeHouse mostly holds a lot of office clients, like their mom, who needs extra space to store all those office extras like files, documents, paperwork and supplies.
If you are not familiar with the Self Storage or Mini Storage concept, it is a shorter term for “self-service storage” where individuals or companies are able to lease storage spaces to store items of their choice. The rented spaces are usually secured by the tenant’s own key and lock, but in many cases for the good quality storage units, they also provide CCTV camera systems for added security.
The storage spaces range from that of smaller ones that are like closets and can fit around 8 balikbayan boxes, all the way to larger rooms that can fit over 120 Balikbayan boxes. Of course, you can store whatever you want in there whether or not they are in a box. But was just stating the sizes to give you a rough estimate.
