FAQ

You Have Questions, We Have Answers

General

Do you sell wire mesh storage?

No, we do not sell wire mesh storage. Our Bradyl Bins™ are a more secure and durable alternative to wire mesh storage. Wire mesh storage is not typically available in custom sizes, and lacks the privacy of our fully-enclosed, steel-walled on-site apartment storage units. Visit our Bradyl Bin™ page to learn more about the premier onsite storage option for multi-family properties.

Where do you work?

For about the same price as wire mesh on-site storage, your residents can benefit from the privacy, security, quality, and peace of mind of Bradyl Bins and Bradyl Boxes. The opaque walls offer greater privacy and improved security. Would-be burglars can’t see inside, making residents’ belongings are more secure.

When you offer Bradyl Bins™, you can also expect to see an increase in overall marketability for your multi-family property. Eighty-five percent of renters prefer Bradyl Bins™ for on-site storage to wire mesh lockers. Moreover, the Bradyl Bin™ works with existing mechanical, electrical, and plumbing configurations. This makes for a quick and painless installation that doesn’t require changing existing site conditions or sprinkler layout.

Bradyl Boxes™ and Bradyl Bins™ can have an extremely positive impact on NOI and CAP rates. By offering Bradyl Bins™ as on-site storage solutions, multi-family properties can earn up to five dollars per square foot. In fact, residents report that they are willing to pay up to $30 more per month for Bradyl Bins™ than they would pay for wire mesh storage.

Today, demand for on-site storage is higher than ever. Whether this is a result of downsizing baby boomers, or because of millennials who expect top-tier amenities, Bradyl Storage Solutions are your opportunity to capitalize on this trend. In addition to increased revenue, on-site storage can improve occupancy rates. According to our independent survey, the availability of on-site storage is often a deciding factor among prospective residents choosing between properties.

Why do tenants prefer on-site storage to off-site storage?

On-site storage solutions offer the convenience of 24 hour access to personal belongings without the commute to and from a remote storage unit. However, most on-site storage solutions are made from wire mesh, which does not offer the privacy and security of most public storage facilities. Bradyl Bins™ are made of heavy-duty steel, bringing security and privacy onsite to apartment buildings and multifamily properties.
