Revenue Projections for Storage Unit Companies

  • In the revenue model, you’ll enter your individual storage unit properties, the number of storage units, the average monthly rent per storage unit and the vacancy rate for your storage units expected for each property. The customized revenue model then calculates your revenue projections and can predict how much you can make owning a storage unit business.  You can add multiple types of storage businesses and up to 25 individual properties in the revenue forecast template.

Storage Facility Operating Expenses

  • In the operating expense model, you will be guided to enter your expenses which includes some industry standard items like storage unit business property taxes, insurance, marketing, and utilities.
  • ​Your monthly expenses can be entered as either fixed or variable expenses.  You can also enter in expenses on a per storage unit property level or even a per unit level. The operating expense model will automatically feed the estimated expenses and cash flows to the storage business financial statements for you. 
  • To help you enter your storage unit business startup costs, the first three months of the model are separated so that you can enter start-up expenses associated with the launch of your storage unit business.

The Self Storage General Assumptions Model

  • You’ll be guided to enter your fixed assets that are not associated with the storage unit properties.  This could include assets like office furniture and equipment, any vehicles purchased for the business, forklifts, and other equipment. You’ll also list any loans and investments received for the business.
  • The model takes your input data and then calculates the more complex items for you like interest and depreciation expenses, loan amortization, etc.

Common Storage Facility Employee Salaries 

  • You will be able to enter any salaried employees and their annual salary, starting month and annual raise projections. Other monthly expenses for salaried employees, like employer taxes and benefits, are calculated automatically. 
  • This model can also help you in calculating any owner draws or dividends that are distributed to owners.

Step 3: The model is automatically updated based on your assumptions

Self Storage Business Financials At-A-Glance

You’ll get a financial snapshot of your storage business projections in the At-A-Glance tab.  You’ll have access to 5 year financial summaries, graphs, charts, and key ratios that are made ready to be copied directly into a pitch deck.

Storage Unit Financial Statement Tabs

Our self storage spreadsheet template generates six Financial Statement tabs: the income statement, cash flow statement, and balance sheet–all in annual formats; as well as the month-by-month breakdowns of those same three financial statements. You can also breathe easy knowing that our balance sheets always automatically balance.

Get Investor and Lender Ready Financials

Our template can make the process of securing a self storage business investor easy. Not only was this template made to provide highly effective and reliable projections for you, but to help you more easily pitch to lenders and investors. The model takes your inputs and assumptions and then generates quality detailed financial pro-formas with that information.

What ProjectionHub Customers Think

The cost of the template is estimated at $ 2000

If you hired a CPA to build this template from scratch it would take at least 20 hours of billable time to build a similar template. At an average hourly rate of $100 per hour it would cost you $2,000.

20 hours X $100 = $2,000 value

But we've already done all the work and you don't need to hire a CPA
