History of Self-Storage
Although there is historical evidence of self-storage was accessible to the public in China (ancient), modern storage facilities (exclusive access to storage space) appeared in 1958 with the opening of Lauderdale to Fort Lauderdale , Florida (founded by the Collum family). In the late 1960s, the first self-storage chains strictly speaking began to open in Texas.
Modern storage centres progressed slowly in the 1990s. During that decade, demand exceeded supply and caused an influx of new self-storage developments. From 2000 to 2005, more than 3,000 new facilities were built each year in America.
