Storage Buildings: Planning, Budgeting, Financing and More
08 Apr, 2020

Ordering a new building isn’t just useful from a functional standpoint—though, that is an obvious benefit—but also from the investment perspective. When buying a new metal self-storage building, you’re investing in your future. As such, it’s vital to maximize your potential return on investment.

To help ensure the value you receive from your steel self-storage building, Storage Building Central has put together this quick guide to doing just that, from planning to budgeting and beyond. Read on to unlock the true potential of your self-storage building

Planning for a Prefab Self-Storage Building

Most positive investments begin with thorough planning. Without an appropriate plan, it is easy to make mistakes that seem inconsequential at the moment but have a surprising impact in the long run. To make sure this doesn’t happen, it’s important to know the details about selecting, customizing, and installing a metal self-storage building.

  • Building Permits 

    Certain areas may require that building permits be obtained before you begin installing your building. Before you purchase and install your prefab self-storage building, ask your local authorities about building permits.

  • Site Preparation 

    Properly preparing the installation site for your steel self-storage building is a key step in ensuring your building is delivered and installed without a hitch. Leveling the area, clearing it of debris, and other such tasks are usually all that is required.

  • Location 

    The location of your site can dictate certain necessities. Building permits and the extent to which the site must be prepared are two examples of this, but the climate of your location is a major factor to consider, too. If you see harsh weather, you may have to opt for certain building customizations.

  • Customizations 

    Storage Building Central allows you to customize nearly every aspect of your self-storage building. Some of these customizations may be made out of personal preference and intended use, and others may be a result of your climate. Heavy snowfall, for example, may demand extra strength and a particular roof style when compared to a self-storage building in a temperate climate.

  • Climate Controlled Storage Buildings 

    Extreme cold, intense heat, or delicate storage requirements can all lead to the decision to opt for a climate-controlled self-storage building. Storage Building Central provides you this opportunity along with superior insulation to ensure the climate of your building remains strictly controlled without costing you a fortune.

  • Additional Considerations 

    The points listed above will give you a great foundation for your plan and the self-storage building that results. However, everyone’s preferences and needs are unique, so take a moment to research and think about other factors that could influence what special considerations your location or intended use may demand!

Budgeting and Financing

An investment is only as good as your ability to make it. The same is true of your investment in a metal self-storage building. As such, it’s important to know what affects the price of your dream steel self-storage building and how you can make the most cost-effective investment.

The size of your building will directly correlate to price. The bigger your building, the higher the price. The same is true of opting for a multi-story building over a single-story building. More floors mean more money.

Customizations also directly influence the price. As you make changes to your building, the price will reflect them. Be aware of what you are customizing if you are trying to maintain a strict budget—is the customization necessary or superfluous?

Storage Building Central has two financing programs to help you purchase and put your self-storage building to use. Should you need it, you can opt for a financing program or a rent-to-own program.
