StorageMart, which operates more than 190 self storage properties across Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States, has acquired Assured Mini Storage in Lake Charles, La. The 7.4-acre property at 4852 Ihles Road is just off Country Club Road (LA-384). It contains more than a dozen buildings comprising 124,000 square feet of storage space in 800 units. A climate-controlled addition was completed earlier this year, according to a press release. Security features include PIN-controlled access, perimeter fencing and video cameras.
"We want every customer to have peace of mind while storing with us, even if they store something like electronics, photographs or antiques," said Cris Burnam, president. "Especially in warmer and humid climates, we find having climate-controlled units available is a big draw for customers looking to store temperature-sensitive items. This new property puts us in a good position to fill that need, with over 20,000 square feet of [climate-control]."
StorageMart also operates a second self storage facility in the city, at 1515 Church St., the source reported.
Founded in 1999 and based in Columbia, Mo., StorageMart is privately owned and operated by the Burnam family, which has been in the storage industry for three generations. It serves more than 75,000 self storage customers, and operates in Chinese, English, Punjabi, Quebecois French and Spanish.
