Storage operators commonly measure their business success with occupancy rates. As a facility owner, you want to know how much space is used economically and what the revenue is from each sqft/sqm/sqcm in your facility. We at 6storage, created the Area Occupancy report that allows you to look at how your facility's space is being used. Each unit is assigned to a group based on its status. 


The occupancy rate is the ratio of rented or used space to the total available space.

Occupancy is reported according to four different metrics.

By Unit Occupancy

By sqft/sqm/sqcm Occupancy

By Economic Occupancy

By Physical Occupancy

Select one the following categories. Storage category, Dimension, Location, Building, or Unit type to determine which category you want to see the occupancy status of. After selecting, click on the "Get Report" button, then the report will be displayed.

If you want to export or download the report, click on the export button and select any of the following options PDF, XSLX, and XSL. 

In the Unit summary, you can see the storage status of all storage and its percentage, or the Area of each storage its percentage.

For the Storage Occupancy, each storage status is exclusive, meaning storage will only be counted towards one storage status. The following are the statuses for storage.

1. Occupied

2. Reserved

3. Maintenance

4. Repaired

5. Facility Use

6. Vacant

You can find the square foot price, current, and total possible rent on the average rent summary.
