  • New Construction Facility and First Post

    Been reading on here for a couple months or so, First post. We are building a new self storage facility in OH, will be breaking ground in the next 45-60 days. 9800 total Square Feet (phase 1), 3 all steel buildings, 10x10s x 5x10s. No utiilites. Existing building on site will serve as office as well as two TC units. 2.5 acres, already graveled. Looking into Easy Storage solutions for software and possibly PTI core for the entry system. Managed a small facility when I was in my early 20s. Looking forward to hearing any suggestions and love learning. Thanks

    Welcome StorageDoctor!! Where in Ohio are you building?
    I was born to be wild, but only until about 9:00 pm.

      Welcome storagedoctor. This is a great place to get advice from people that have been in this business for a while.

      I use Sitelink for my software. I suggest getting a website set up as soon as possible so you can start advertising opening the new facility. Start a facebook page for the facility so that you can post updates and get the name of the facility out there as soon as possible. I recently purchased an app for our facility and my tenants love it. Contact Aaron Harwell with SpiderDoor at 205-655-8200 for more information on getting your own app. Join the local Chamber and have a grand opening ribbon cutting ceremony once you open. Put a banner on the side of the building that reads opening soon. Just some suggestions.

      Wishing you great success.

              Welcome aboard! I started in the business 3 years ago and went with Easy Storage Solutions. I have nothing but great things to say. It's reasonably priced, outstanding customer service and the credit card integration with Yapstone is seamless.

                Welcome StorageDoctor!

                Congrats on getting your own place - that's awesome! Easy Storage is a good option. StorEDGE is also solid. I use StorEDGE for my facility and they have been great.

                I'd definitely make sure your Google business page is up and ready to go. Google reviews are important for a storage facility.

                Let me know if you need recommendations for anything else!

                  We just started last month renting on line and it is working good so far. We have Kiosks and there is not a lot of difference But you know nothing is perfect. I guess you could call it the future.

                  We use storEDGE and have been asking for the feature since 2014 when we switched from sitelink stand alone. We were told that they would be adding the feature soon, and that has yet to ever happen. We offer RV Storage, and so say if a customer comes in on the 15th but won't need it until the 1st, we...

                  My wife and I ran a property down in Dallas. We were right down town in a very bad part of Dallas. Lots of transients and drugs were rampant. The reason I mention all of that is it did not make a difference to us. When we left one my homeless people that I had to bicker with fairly often came up...
