May 2017 News Letter Self Storage is Booming!

May 2017 Newsletter

News From the Las Vegas Self Storage Expo

We had a great time at the show!   Co Founder Marc Goodin’s presentation on how you can do an initial layout to save time and money was well received by everyone.  The layout is one of the most important aspects to determine the feasibility of the site and of course to make the facility user friendly for the renters and manager.

The vendor convention hall was sold out!  One thing we noticed is the technology and software continues to grow.  In general this is good but I do see too many facilities trying to replace the high touch aspect of our business with more and more software “check lists” and other software options because managers are not trained well as sales and marketing experts.Garrett & Marc enjoyed meeting old friends and making new friends at our Expo booth.  It was great to hear about everyone’s self storage plans.

Once again we heard knowing how to get started and having the confidence to get started continues to be the reason holding most newcomers form getting started. For many the Storage Authority assistance, guidance, systems, experience makes the difference.  Learn more at www.StorageAuthorityFranchise.com

Storage Authority News

Storage Authority has two new locations in the due diligence period.  One is in Florida and one in Texas.  Often Storage Authority will do a preliminary demand study and a concept plan  prior to a franchisees offer to confirm some of the basics.

Once the offer is accepted we recommend you immediately get the wetlands delineated on the site as they are often one unknown that can affect your development.  As you can see on this parcel, wetlands along the rear property line eliminated an acre of usable land.  Typically we are looking for 5 usable acres so we can develop 50,000 sf or more of self storage.

As you can see on the bottom of this sketch RV and boat storage takes up considerable area and is often used for your “extra land”

Vendor News

These guys have a lot going on, including a new logo and new products. In addition to their great self storage security options they now also provide video camera systems via a great partner.

My favorite continues to be their Gate App:

 EasyCode by PTI Security Systems.

EasyCode App will give your renters a simple touch interface to open gates and doors at your storage facility. Plus, they can view their access history, get notified of alarms and access activity, and more!
