The modern technology of today is wonderful. I'm sure you've heard the phrase, "Necessity IS the mother of innovation". In order to make it easier for those searching for self storage, many new services have appeared over the years. These services can be very valuable. It is also important to reflect back on how people used to find self storage.
At first, there wasn't any storage. If you had too much stuff you could put it in the garage or attic, or you could just throw it away. Many important antiques, as well as much of our history, were lost because there wasn't enough space. Russ Williams was a man working in the oil industry and saw the need to have somewhere to store his boat, fishing equipment, and additional equipment. Odessa in Texas was the birthplace of the first modern self storage facility. They proved to be very useful and successful.
Self-storage was becoming a common feature in the world a few years later. Self storage was much cheaper than adding additional storage to a home or buying a larger home. The new concept of self storage proved to be very useful for salesmen and businessmen. The Self Storage Industry was quickly born as everyone realized how valuable renting extra space was.
The demand for self storage increased as more facilities were built. It was not yet possible to search the internet or use GPS. To find self storage facilities one would need to consult the Yellow Pages and draw a map. Archaic, I know. It is almost impossible to believe that we once lived during those "dark ages".
