Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter

The Self-Storage Services industry has a low level of capital intensity. For every $1.00 paid as wages, only $0.12 is required as capital investment. Despite wages accounting for a significant portion of the industry’s cost structure, the industry is not heavily reliant on labour functions, with an average of less than three full-time employees per establishment.
