High-growth storage opportunities: Cushman and Wakefield estimates the global storage market is growing by £2 billion annually. In Europe, self-storage uptake (per capita) is less than one tenth of the USA’s, and so it offers substantial market opportunity. easyStorage has a mission to be the ‘go-to’ brand for storage.
Their easyPod franchise is winner of the BFA’s Emerging Franchisor Award 2022. In just four years from launch, the franchise network has grown to cover 80% of the UK. easyPods are mobile storage units that hold furniture and other items securely. They are carried on specially-built vans to the customer, the crew loads items and returns to the local storage facility. In contrast, traditional self-storage requires customers do the lifting, van hire and pay for fuel. Rave reviews on Trustpilot say it all. Inside the storage facility, modular easyPod stacking maximises space efficiency which brings down prices for customers. Self-storage on the other hand opts for expensive locations by the side of major roads. 40% of their building's capacity is lost to access corridors and lifts. easyPod can be as little as half the price of self-storage. As the number of easyPods in storage builds, so does attractive recurring revenue. easyPod is now extending into Europe with master franchise opportunities available.
The new easyContainer franchise launched recently in 2023. It provides gated container storage with 24hr, drive-up access. easyContainers are strong which makes them ideal for the trades to keep tools, plant and materials, and for e-commerce companies to hold and sort stock. Their large capacity makes them suitable for household content, garden furniture, sports equipment and even boats or cars. easyContainer is a light-touch, highly-profitable franchise that generates attractive recurring revenue. Franchise opportunities are available in the UK. Investment from £40k.
