He found a building in Wildey and rented it. Since it was 11,000 square feet it was decided to rent two thirds of the building to other tenants and to use one third for self-storage. One of the businesses on the same street had a fire and needed storage urgently and rented one third, and the other third was rented to a business in the field of distribution.
Peter Bynoe and his former business partner, started Secure Shred offering document storage, and because the business was listed in the Yellow Pages under storage, several calls were received per day from people asking for self-storage. For well over a year the callers were directed to other self-storage facilities, which were often full, until Peter’s partner got tired of it. So in 2005 he went looking for a building for rent to offer indoor storage, as the other three facilities only offered drive-up or outdoor storage.
