Yes you got it. The elephant in the room has reared its ugly head yet once again. Over the last couple of years we at Cedar Storage have noticed a trend in the storage industry with regards to who is responsible for the goods while in our care.
Hello my friends. I was privileged to attend an evening with Arthur Goldstuck held by “Mobile Monday”
These fantastic forward thinking people opened my eyes even wider than they already are. Yes I have a good idea of where we need to go. These people have a roadmap set out all the way to 2020 and beyond with regard to where technology is taking us.
self-storage “is a symbol of what happens when we consume too much. We have too much stuff, and we’re paying the price.
It is evident that some people think that storage is just a case of consumerism. I would however like to raise some ideas that could persuade the average person that what others perceive as “junk” will one day hopefully become a treasured item.
Environmentalist Adam Werbach, former president of the Sierra Club, was quoted on Twitter as proclaiming that self-storage “is a symbol of what happens when we consume too much. We have too much stuff, and we’re paying the price.”

In 2004 two industrious young men working on several projects needed some extra space for their machines and tools. After looking around the neighborhood for several weeks they found a storage unit with a company who shall remain nameless. The young Entrepreneur started to pay exorbitant rates for this small unit which had only wire and roof sheeting to separate them from their neighbors in the complex.
