No matter if your storage is more residentially, or commercially oriented, the sole purpose of owning one is generating income. That being said, one of the prime steps is to make your storage facility competitive to other facilities of this sort. That will lead you to fully grasp the concept of storage valuation and insurance NJ. The next thing you should do is to determine the value of your facility. To do that, you will need to take into consideration the following:

  • Carefully measure the value of your storage facility, paying attention to all the details
  • Determining the exact amount of income your storage facility will produce
  • How reliable is the income the storage facility will generate?

In order to minutely determine the level of return on investment, you will also need to make a precise comparison with other real kinds of real estates. The point of this is to instigate buyers and make them decide to invest in a storage facility than in some other form of real estate.

Determining the value

Real estate appraisers have the task to determine the exact value of a real estate, in this case, a storage unit. They will do it by looking into the income approach (which considers the earning capacity) and comparable sales approach (taking into consideration the most recent selling price of the same or similar facility, but making adjustments due to certain differences between the properties), as well as defining the real cost needed to replace the facility.

Know the exact value of your storage facility

If everything is being measured the best way, all three of these will lead you to the same outcome.  It will reveal the value of real estate.

Real Reviews from Real Customers

I wanted to personally thank the crew of Moving of America for the amazing job they did to move my company to our new corporate location. We planned to move out of our existing office on short notice and your team made the entire experience easy and pleasant. Your team accommodated multiple loads across several days. The hands off approach by your movers allowed us to focus on many other things that required our immediate attention. The team showed their professionalism by showing up early, helping us pack everything, and staging everything perfectly in the new location. Once again, thank you to your entire team!

When choosing a moving company, Moving of America, is by far your best decision. From the beginning they were very informative regarding what services they offer and their different packages and pricing. Being that we moved from NYC to Virginia, my stuff was delivered in the same exact condition as it was before. Not only did these guys come earlier than originally promised, their level of hard work and efficiency was beyond phenomenal. They worked straight through from the time of arrival until they were done, without taking ANY breaks, with smiles on their faces and positive attitudes, nonetheless. The team they sent us was EXCEPTIONAL and they made our stressful transition completely stress free. THANKS, MOVING OF AMERICA !!!!

Recently, I had to move from Essex County, New Jersey to Brooklyn, New York and I wasn’t sure about who to choose or where to turn for help. So, I asked my friends if they can recommend any honest moving companies. They suggested me to engage Moving of America. I hired them without hesitation and got to witness first hand their level of professionalism and hard workers. The crew made sure to wrap and pack all my fragile items. They were extremely careful while handling my antique furniture. I am immensely pleased with the service and highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great moving experience.

We used Moving of America services twice. Once to move out and put some of our office belongings in the storage; the other to move those items back to the office. We had 2 different teams and both were great. The first team had to deal with a 3rd-floor walk-up apt. They were very careful in moving all our boxes and wrapping our furniture with plastic and cardboard. Then they spent a good portion of the afternoon loading everything into the storage unit, which looked like a game of Tetris after they were done. 6 months later, we requested the same team of guys but they were unavailable. A different set of 4 guys came and I was initially skeptical but within the first hour and a half, they unloaded a 10x15 unit that was filled with our stuff. The first, move out the team was more careful and the second, move in the team were very fast. Both teams were great and I highly recommend them.

- Willy & Bros

We moved our office, approximate 160 boxes, 8 computers and lots of furniture. All our stuff was in great condition at destination. They explained everything over the phone, the going rate, the packing service we would have, and a full detailed move plan. They used all type of protective equipment for the furniture. Try them, decent rates too.

- R&PA

The most skilled, experienced and professional movers, I have come across. My move had the chance of playing out in a couple ways. I was definitely moving some stuff and possibly storing some. Not only that they also picked up the unwanted, non-perishable food items to deliver it to their local food banks. Move for Hunger teams up with relocation companies across the country and picks up these items from food banks to distribute it to the poor and needy. I was very much satisfied that I have done a generous act with the help of Moving of America. They are super communicative (called to confirm and called when en route with box delivery and move), prompt, and really friendly.
