  • Unique Selling Proposition

    What would you say is the one thing that makes your facility stand out from others in your market?

    By far the highest security and the upscale neighborhood we are in. Of course, there is me.

        32 yrs., not a single burglary. Can't say that for any other facility within 5 miles of me. The reason I know is that I have numerous tenants from every one of those other facilities that moved here AFTER they had a bunch of their stuff stolen.

        The problem is when I'm on the phone with people I can only tell them our history and security measures and warn them about how the break-ins happen at other facilities. Most callers are shopping price or "specials" and have no idea that there's a good chance their stuff will be stolen elsewhere.... buy hey, at least they only paid $1 on move in.

          As has been said, quality, security, great management, oh, and we are really the only serious facility in the are. None of the big boys, as the market here is very small. Oh, we sell boxes and are the only Uhaul idiots within 20 minutes on twisty mountain roads.

            We dont have one thing in particular. I have shopped my CC competitors and found that we do stand out in a few areas: We have a great staff, and a high standard for customer service and for keeping up the curb appeal and interior. Climate controlled units that don't cost an arm and a leg help us stand out. to online shoppers. We only have 2 competitors in a 10 mile radius that offers such a wide range of sizes for CC- and I can list several things wrong with their facilities from having to reserve an elevator-or if you forgot/ or if someone else disregards the time frame- your SOL and carrying your stuff up 3 flights of stairs to having limited access hours and one of them even has a water pipe running through every unit, with a spigot. I would hate to accidentally bump one of those- or have something fall over and hit that pipe. There's also the extended hours we offer, and additional business amenities like free faxing and scanning services and 24 hour access for businesses only. Our security and camera systems is comparable to others. I like that we are off the beaten path- kind of an "out of sight out of mind" thing for would be criminals.

              Good feedback, I really like the Levitons and could see putting automation in place to handle it. I could use If this then that to turn on or off the outlet. The drawback is that the outlets all have a manual option to turn it on. I think using IFTTT can just shut it off it detected every 5 min or...

              I have some of them on my property. Each on a separate 20 amp breaker. I charge a $20 per month premium for the power. I have an automated kiosk for rentals but those units are blocked off in the management software so that you need to meet me to rent them.

              So far those units have been...

              That seems like a great idea-though place them somewhere they won't get damaged when a senior citizen inevitably knocks into one side of the other. I've had many phone calls for powered spaces so they can run dehumidifiers or a trickle charge for their battery....
