Traditional storage places restrictions.

As recently as ten years ago, what we are suggesting, small shop space in a self storage facility, would have been fantasy.  Self storage was used for household possessions, period, end of story.  Besides the general purpose of self storage back then, there were also restrictions like hours of operation and zoning concerns.

We are not suggesting that there are no longer restrictions, but we are saying that the year is now 2024, and communities, and self storage facilities, are becoming more creative in their thinking.

A new day dawning in the self storage industry.

If you have taken even a cursory look at real estate prices lately, you know that the cost of a lease has skyrocketed.  Available space in cities like Fort Worth are at a premium, and any shortage in supply will be followed immediately by a corresponding increase in prices.

That fact corresponds with another shift in the business community, namely an increase in the number of small businesses.  Ever since COVID, and the subsequent layoffs, and the subsequent increase in former employees striking out on their own in business, we have seen small start-up businesses in every major city in the U.S. And those small businesses need commercial real estate with affordable leases.

From that history we arrive today, and the self storage industry responding to a very real need in storage places.

What to expect with small shop space at Mouser.

From 12 x 30 to 24 x 40 hobby shop space for lease. All come with electricity, lights and 24/7 access. Some units include  220v electricity. If you have outgrown working on your hobby at home, give us a call. No long-term contracts. Month to month  lease.

The hobby shop spaces are perfect for someone who does woodworking, rebuilding or repairing a car or anything that needs extra space with electricity.

What type of hobby are you into?  Are you fond of the arts? Do you need room to pursue your passion for painting or sculpture?  Do you like to make cards, or are you into calligraphy?  Perhaps crocheting is your passion, or sewing or quilting?  Maybe you have an arts and crafts Etsy business which has outgrown your home.

Maybe you like to restore cars or travel trailers or small boats? Maybe you like to build small boats for a small business?

Are you a writer, a blogger, or a vlogger, desperate for a private space where you can create?

Photography? Tie-dying? Making collages?  Perhaps you love to play video games, but your partner is demanding equal time with the television?  Stamp collecting, book collecting, coin collecting.

All are possible in these secure storage units, the perfect solution which allows for your pursuits in a private space, bringing peace and harmony to your home environment.

But what about a business? Although these units cannot conduct retail business, they can serve as perfect storage for inventories, so that a small home-based business could thrive and still retain room, in the home, to actually live.

And the price of these units in storage places is much, much less expensive than traditional shops for rent.
