It is officially summer and for millions of people worldwide, summer means self storage.
Nearly 40 million people relocate in the U.S. each year and the majority of these people move between May and September.
With so many people moving and looking for storage in the summer months, now is a great time to give your facility a quick and easy face lift.
The following are three quick tips to spruce up a site you have recently purchased or are considering selling:
Put your security system on display
If you have a great security and video surveillance system, show it off! Large office monitors with video camera feeds go a long way in making potential customers feel safe and secure from the moment they walk in your office. Site Graphics are another great way to display your security system. Not only are they specific to your site, they offer the opportunity to showcase your site and give future renters a feel for the facility before they even leave the office. Site Graphics are a great way to highlight additional security features such as door alarms.
When searching for storage, 81% of your customers use their mobile device during the research or rental process. They use this specific search term because they are looking for a convenient storage option. You can give your customers this convenience and mobile access with EasyCode from PTI Security Systems. EasyCode is a mobile gate entry app for self storage that keeps your customers from having to remember their code or leave their vehicle to enter the code at the gate.
Doors: rust, cracks, fading, oh my!
If your facility needs a face lift, replacing doors is a great way to spruce up the look and feel of your site. Your doors account for a huge portion of your physical space and play such a big 'roll' in your curb appeal. Consider the Door Replacement Program from Janus International™ and think about adding SecurGuard™ locks to improve your curb appeal and security this summer.
