As a farmer, you’re no stranger to hard work and making the most of your land. 

But what if there was an opportunity to boost your income and make the most of your current resources in a way that requires very little time and effort? 

Look no further than the world of self-storage container units. It’s a booming industry that’s gaining massive traction across the UK and is said to be worth £990 million pounds as of 2023.

Within this article, we’ll take a look at why setting up a storage container business could be a business opportunity for farmers with extra land, and how we can help you turn this idea into a reality.


The 4 Benefits of Starting a Storage Business

Long Term Revenue Potential

One of the big advantages of the self-storage industry is the potential for long term revenue. Lots of customers hire storage units for several months at a time, providing you with a healthy stream of income. This is very appealing for farmers who may have seasonal changes in income.


Low Investment To Set Up

The great thing about starting a storage container business is that you have flexibility when it comes to your initial investment. You can either buy containers or hire storage units based on your budget and goals. This allows you to scale your business at your own pace and adapt to changing demand.


Large Demand

The self-storage industry in the UK is really starting to grow, with a market worth almost £1 billion, and living spaces becoming smaller, the need for extra storage space is only getting bigger. Farmers are in a strong position to capitalise on this 

demand by using their land for storage units.


Small Time Commitment

As you’ll know, farming can be time-consuming, but a storage container business offers lots of flexibility. Once you’ve set up your yard and put systems in place, it doesn’t require lots of your time. This means you can generate income while still focusing on your core farming jobs.
