What we’re looking
for in our franchisees

Our unwavering commitment to customer service excellence has been the key ingredient in our success, and we expect our franchise owners to emulate this approach. You should be proficient at interacting with local communities and selling to customers.

Finding your franchise location

The typical facility needed for a franchisee to start their business will be an open yard with 130,000 to 430,000 square feet of usable space. It should be located near public transport, and have easy access to major highways.
You may already have the perfect spot in mind, or we’ll help you find a suitable location in your assigned territory. Longyards will purchase the land , whereafter it will be up to you (with our guidance) to put up fencing and electrical power to allow for security cameras and gates. There will also be an office operation at the entrance of the property to allow for those killer sales presentations we know you’re going to nail!

What you get in return

When you become the proud new owner of a Longyards Storage franchise
you’ll be able to offer all the following USPs to your client base:


With our model, your customers can have eyes on the yard at all times.

Top end security

You’ll be offering fully screened in, protected yard space with top end security.

Remote access

Many small businesses have several members of staff who need to come and go. With our solution, the owner can open the gate remotely through their smartphone to let authorized personnel in.


You’ll be able to offer pods and office space for your tenants if they require it.

And here’s the real kicker. Currently, Longyards storage has virtually no real competition! That’s why, with your help, we aim to expand quickly and efficiently.
