StorageMart announced today the purchase of 18 Budget Storage and Advance Self Storage locations in Iowa, Kansas and Nebraska.
“We have been working on this portfolio since 1987, and are pleased it has finally come to fruition,” StorageMart CEO Mike Burnam said. “It fits well with our acquisition criteria for increasing or maintaining critical mass in markets where we can control expenses and push our revenue.”
The acquisition adds 1,113,872 net rentable square feet and 8,573 individual storage units to StorageMart’s portfolio, making it the single largest provider of self storage service to the Greater Des Moines Area. This addition brings the company wide total of net rentable square footage to more than 9.8 million.
“We’re excited by the opportunity to not only enter the Des Moines market, but to do so as the largest provider of self storage in the area,” StorageMart President Cris Burnam said. “We’re looking forward to bringing to the people of the Des Moines the high standards of service and innovation which have become synonymous with the StorageMart brand and made us a leader in the self storage industry.”
