The Truth About the Difference Between Storage Authority and Third-Party Management.

By Ed Clement

Let’s Take a Look at the Pros and Cons.

  • If you want to put in absolutely zero time and have no input into the operation, a management company could be a good option for you.

  • The alternative is a Storage Authority Franchise where you can save money and make more profit by overseeing your manager and facility.

  • Management companies have lots of rules from hours of operation to “Free Months” that are not conducive to maximizing profits.

  • They do not work as hard as Storage Authority to control expenses as you and your team would to control the bottom line and increase profit.

  • SBA loans are not available to facilities operated by a management company. That alone should tell you something!

  • Storage Authority will assist and guide you through finding land, design, and construction as well as pre-opening marketing to save you time and money.

  • A management company will not help you with development.

  • Storage Authority provides a Manager Driven System where the manager is an integral part of a high- end marketing system for less expense and increased income.

  • Management company employees have limited responsibilities and are typically order takers with little to no marketing experience.

The Storage Authority team is excited to guide you on your journey to becoming self-storage owners. Let's build one for you!
