COVID-19 has created an unprecedented situation worldwide. The upheavals we are having to face are endless, however, amidst the negative impacts there’s a ray of hope for the secure storage industry, as customer enquiries and online searches for storage rentals surge in India as well as many places across the world.
This spike in demand for storage facilities coincided with the increased imposition of work from home directives from organisations globally. However, there has been a significant shift in the trend of the inquiries that the relocation companies have been receiving after the global lockdown has been imposed. Usually, there used to be a 50/50 split between business and domestic inquiries. After the lockdown, there are far more domestic inquiries, with the ratio altering to 10/90. And, this is because people are keen to shift back to their hometowns and work from home to save on the rent of houses in bigger cities.
COVID-19 has created a situation where work from home for an extensive period has and can become a new normal for at least some time now. In India, people from small towns who had been working in IT hubs like Bengaluru and Gurugram, are now shifting back home because shelling out high rents become pointless, because of the work from home scenario. In such cases, their belongings need to be kept in secure storage facilities, till things become normalised and they return once more or figure out what’s to be done at a later point in time.
