Brook School Self Storage will open a new facility the first week in November. It is located at 11775 Brooks School Rd. Patrons can rent storage space for items like wood furniture, electronics, paintings, musical instruments and more.
Brooks School Self Storage, owned and managed by Shamrock Builders, features optional climate control units, a security and surveillance system, drive-up units, boat and RV storage, optional garage door openers, on site management and key code access. The facility has over 90,000 square feet and offers units from 5 x 5 feet to 15 x 30 feet with 10-feet-high ceilings. A local high-end designer, Gary Nance, created a building that “looks much more attractive than a typical warehouse-looking facility,” according to Bruce Sklare, self-storage partner with Brooks School Storage.
The location, behind Marsh Supermarket at 116th Street and Brooks School Road, is also a convenient spot for residents.
“For the growing population there seemed to be a much higher demand than what was currently being supplied,” Skalre said.
Customers looking for a storage facility are typically doing so due to a major life event change, such as a wedding, moving to a smaller location, losing a loved one and wanting to save their possessions for sentimental reasons, or divorce, according to Skalre and George Geiger, a partner with Shamrock Builders.
“Our goal is to make (the move) a very easy experience and solve their problem very quickly,” Geiger said.
Brooks School Self Storage offers an additional perk helpful for those wanting to eliminate the hassle and expense of renting a large vehicle. The facility allows residents to borrow a truck, free of charge, for moving their items into their storage unit.
The new facility also offers boat and RV storage.
“We’ve really had a tremendous response to that,” Geiger said.
Shamrock Builders has been in business for 50 years.
“I think Shamrock earned their reputation in property management and customer service,” Sklare said. “(The customers are) very well taken care of. If there is a mistake, we get it taken care of.”
