The reason why people keep keeping their own warehouses even at high rents is "There is a thing that can cancel or cancel a place if you contract once." Even if the owner of the warehouse decides to raise the price it does not matter to look for another warehouse because it takes a lot of labor and money to move something in the warehouse somewhere.
