Consider this: a storage container shop can be rented for less than $1000 per month. A traditionally-constructed shop for rent, in a good location, in a major city, cannot be rented for that low amount.
No, that is not an absolute statement. Surely, somewhere in the vast U.S., you can find a shop for lease, in a good location, in some major city, at a low, low price, but it surely does not happen often, and it is usually part of an introductory rental deal which will change in a month or two.
How do we know? We are Box Office Warehouse Suites, a business park in Fort Worth, Texas, comprised of outstanding commercial property for rent made entirely from refurbished shipping containers. Call us at 817-439-3224 for more information about our truly-unique rental opportunities.
Now, let’s talk about those shipping containers and why we believe they are the wave of the future in commercial and industrial property for lease.
Why is a storage container shop so inexpensive?
Have you priced lumber lately? Perhaps you have a backyard project, you need lumber for that project, and you have traveled to the Home Depot or local lumber yard to pick up some 2x4s and plywood. If you have, you know what we are talking about when we say the price of lumber is sky-high right now, and showing no signs of being affordable anytime soon.
Traditional construction, using lumber, is a very costly undertaking. On the other end of the spectrum, a used 40’ storage container, already constructed, can be purchased for a few thousand dollars. It can be refurbished and professionally-designed for a few thousand more. And storage container buildings do not wear out like traditional construction materials do, meaning the upkeep on them is practically zero.
It all adds up to a 320-square foot structure which costs far-less than a comparable brick-and-mortar building . . . and that decreased construction cost means savings to the business owners renting a storage container shop.
But, isn’t as storage container just an ugly rectangular structure?
Using our own Box Office Warehouse Suites as an example, let us say this: a storage container may be ugly when it arrives at Box Office Warehouse Suites, but when we get done with the professional renovation, it is a colorful, inviting retail space for lease which will make customers smile upon arrival. We know this to be true because we see it happening daily at Box Office Warehouse Suites.
Today’s economy is screaming for an inexpensive solution
The post-COVID days of the American economy are screaming change. The old ways of doing business do not fit into the new economic reality. Small business owners cannot afford traditional commercial and industrial property. New ways of construction are called for. New zoning laws are needed. And we believe, and we are proving it in Fort Worth, that new ideas like shipping container buildings are solutions whose time has arrived.
