While there are dark clouds of uncertainty looming over all types of businesses during the Corona period, some businesses are flourishing rapidly while proving to be an opportunity for disaster. The storage house business is also one of these. With the growth of work from home for nearly four months, the new storage house business is now growing rapidly. Most of the people working in tech hubs like Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Pune, and Mumbai, especially in IT companies, are working on reduced salaries from home. It is difficult for them to pay hefty rent by keeping the flats closed. So many companies in those cities have come into the storage business. People can vacate expensive flats and keep all the cars and cars in their home at a very modest monthly rent.
For example, if the rent of the flat is Rs. 25,000 a month, the rent of these storage houses is only 2,500 to 3,500 thousand. All the goods are safe there, the insurance facility is also there. This arrangement is proving to be very useful for the employees. Because of the salary cuts during the Corona period, the monthly rental expenses are suddenly decreasing by 90 percent. Apart from employees, many small IT and startup companies are also availing this facility to reduce rental expenses. In addition to all websites, local newspapers are now flooded with advertisements from such companies. The list of such companies, including safe storage, Stoneset storage, Orange Safestorage, and Myraksha, continues to grow.
Coming home from big cities:
These companies give people the opportunity to vacate flats or pay guests during the epidemic and keep all their belongings at a very low cost. People can also place their cars and other vehicles here. These companies also have locker facilities to keep important documents, and people can keep an eye on their lockers through CCTV round the clock. The way these companies work is extremely easy and convenient. Just make a call, and the employees of the company reach the stated address and carry all the goods safely. It requires some additional payments. All such companies are also facilitating the insurance of goods.
Rent from 25,000 to 2,500:
How does storage fare be fixed? On this, these companies say it depends on how much stuff is. Usually, the fare for one-room flat goods is between 2,500 and 3,000 and can be up to four to five thousand for the goods housed in a two-room flat. People associated with this business say that earlier only temporary transfers were used to avail of this facility. But its demand is growing rapidly after the Covid-19. Despite having a new concept, the business is growing rapidly. It has the advantage of both sides. Those who vacate the flats by placing luggage in the storage house do not have to pay the cost of electricity, water, and maintenance every month.
