Innovations for Self Storage Facilities

Self Storage Facility in CaliforniaA staple in nearly every community, there are self storage facilities across the US that offer individuals and organizations rental space to store their belongings on both a short and long-term basis.

In recent years, the self storage industry has undergone a sea of changes. From old converted warehouses to the state-of-art climate controlled multi-story self storage facilities, there have been a number of innovative new products introduced at that will allow today’s self-storage facility owners and investors to extract even more value from their investment by increasing Occupancy Rates and lowering maintenance costs.

Traditionally, the investors who owned self-storage facilities have enjoyed higher returns and huge rewards by keeping the maintenance cost low as well as increasing the rental rates.  However, with more investors entering this business, it is becoming increasingly difficult to increase the rental rates, making it more important than ever to provide sophisticated and functional storage units that differentiate your facility from the competition.

Security for Self Storage Facilities

Due to advancements in technology, self-storage facilities are much more secure than they have ever been. Equipped with modern tools such as security cameras, door alarms for an individual unit as well as the electronic access employing proximity card or keypad system, modern self storage buildings are giving people more confidence to store valuable items long-term. Some storage facilities even employ modern methods such as biometric thumb impression or hand scanners, ensuring access is restricted for any third party other than the tenant.

Installing these technologies ensures a safe and streamlined experience for tenants, improving the appeal of your facility, increasing occupancy rates, and can even save you money by lowering your insurance premiums.

Install Self-Service Kiosks for Excellent Customer Service

Another way some self storage businesses are beating their competitors’ is by employing self-service technology such as kiosks. Many storage facilities are installing registration and payment kiosks to allow their tenants to make payments 24/7  – ensuring that they don’t lose out on a sale no matter what time of day.

Now, more tasks can be handled without human assistance right at the facility – saving the customer time and the storage facility owners’ money!

Whether it is renewing the rental contracts or getting telephone assistance about their rentals, self-service kiosks are a great way to manage this business without maintaining a fulltime workforce, and in today’s world of instant gratification, it is important to allow tenants to register and make payments for rentals when they want it.
