    Pre-Fabricated Storage Units

    I'm weighing the costs on a new property right now. Have any of you had good experiences using pre-fab storage units instead of hiring a contractor to build them from the ground up? The site is a smaller space with enough area for around 30 outdoor units. Appreciate any input!

  • Today's Technology and the Leap of Faith to change from outdated methods

    It's working Fine NOW, Why the Change?
    Afraid to adapt to Technology
    Doubtful on the time to be invested in the "Learning Curve" to understand the tool
    Don't trust the web with secure tenants data
    Hello Everyone, I'm a firm believer that not one size fits all, I believe that in the storage world all of us have a unique way of handling operations at our facility. However, I'm quite curious to know that in spite of having many advanced options that could save time and make the work of Storage Operators/managers...

    Our team attended the Lien Law class on 2/27 given by Carlos K. What we found to be interesting is that he said that the late fee should be applied on the 11th after 5 PM or better yet on the 12th day. Our facilities (4) are 1st of the month & our late fee is scheduled to hit

    Opinion of Land for Self Storage

    Hi experts. My names is Parks and I am attempting to purchase some land to build a self storage facility (SSF). I'm trying to gather several lots and combine enough land to justify a SSF project. Seems I read SSF's typically are profitable at around 60000sf (at least to justify the effort I'm assuming)....

  • Tailgating/piggybacking, and how to prevent it

    I recently had an on site theft of an entire trailer. The thieves tailgated in after someone exited, and then tailgated out after someone else exited as well. So without a gate code, I can't tell if the thieves were tenants or not. Tailgating is something I think every facility deals with, and I'm trying...

  • Missing PhoneSmart -- suggestions for replacement answering service?

    From what I understand Phone Smart went out of business or was bought by another company. The bottom line is that they are no longer answering our missed or after-hours calls. The company that took over I believe is called Insomniac.

    I'm asking this question as a facility manager....

    5 Mile Competition Circle

    I am finding that the "Five Mile Competition Circle" is getting smaller and smaller due to the fact that the housing in my area is exploding. My present location is within one mile of two other self storage facilities. I'm thinking the Five Mile Circle is getting closer to three.
