If you are considering constructing or converting a self-storage facility, you’ll want to work with a lender who can guide you along the way and explain the importance of a feasibility study and why conducting one properly will be critical to the success of your self-storage construction project. A feasibility study measures the potential profit of your facility by assessing the strengths and weaknesses of the project, market research, the size of your project and financial data. The results from the study will help you determine whether you should pursue the project or not, which will ultimately save you time, energy and money. If you need assistance finding a feasibility expert, we have an approved list that we would be happy to share.

Construction is the main component of many self-storage projects. From site plans to budgets, we’ve seen it all. We have funded hundreds of self-storage construction projects nationwide to help both new and experienced owners fill a need in their neighborhoods.


There’s no better way to get started than to have your required documentation on hand. Three years of personal and business tax returns, a personal financial statement, personal resume and a business plan are some of the documents you’ll need to begin the loan process with us.


When you’re ready to work with one of our loan experts, you can expect to have a conversation devoted to your self-storage construction project, including the details of your project, your background and the financing options we have to offer. Your loan specialist will then walk you through the application process.


Once your completed application is received, our team will run cash flow and credit analyses. Next, the loan officer will issue a proposal to you with information on rates, terms and any collateral requirements. We understand that there’s not a one-size-fits-all loan program for self-storage projects. Expect this phase to include in-depth conversations about your history, credit and business plan.
