Self Storage Building Conversions


Self Storage Building Conversions

Self storage building conversions are becoming more common, as cost of land rises and the availability of quality building sites decrease.  From a financial standpoint, these types of conversions can be a wise move.  Here’s why:

  • Easy accessibility.
  • Zoning and permits are often unnecessary-they’ve already been approved!
  • Lots of customers- typically these buildings are in densely populated urban areas with lots of traffic.  This means higher standard rates and quick leases!
  • Quick construction time, since the exterior, foundation, lighting, HVAC, and often security systems are already in place.
  • Don’t forget about the existing parking lot- great potential for future storage buildings, open-air storage, or boat & RV storage!

“A-Lert Building Systems have delivered beyond our expectations on our last two projects. They were very helpful in design and layout of our conversion of an empty supermarket of 29,000 sq. ft. which was completed ahead of schedule. Our present project is a non-climate building of 8,200 sq. ft., the crew is very professional and hard working, the area around the project is kept neat and clean and any questions are answered promptly. We will not hesitate to use A-Lert on our next project.”
