Self Storage Company Gets Back to Charitable Ways

by Tony Gonzalez March 27, 2014 10:28 PM
Sometimes you just need to take a break. Sometimes it helps to just walk away, do something else, or just do nothing and take the time to recharge your proverbial batteries. You don’t necessarily have to be going through bad times. Even when things are going well it doesn’t hurt to take a step back so when you return refreshed and ready to do even better—like the Lawai Cannery Self Storage has. [More]

Community is Key to the Self Storage Industry

by Tony Gonzalez March 25, 2014 5:38 PM
Every likes to say they are there for the community and that they need the community. It sounds great, it endears the business to the community, and it helps get the company’s name out in a positive manner. Of course saying it and making it happen are two different things. It doesn’t just happen for the self storage industry though. It’s how business is done. [More]

Self Storage Facility Coming to the Aid of Fallen Skydiver

by Holly Robinson March 24, 2014 11:46 PM
There comes a time where we all know someone that needs our help; or sometimes we could even be that person. During those times it can be nice to know that you are not alone; that someone out there cares and not necessarily because you are friends, but simply because caring for those in your community is the right thing to do.

Self Storage Company Continues to Give Sports Teams a Sporting Chance

by Tony Gonzalez March 20, 2014 11:10 PM
There are few things that can bring joy to the faces of the young and old alike quite like sports can. For kids playing on an organized sports team the thrill of victory experienced with your friends can create life time of memories. The trouble with youth sports though is that they do cost money for the kids to play and for the leagues to operate. [More]

There is Nothing Like a Good Storage War to Help Our Furry Friends Out

by John Stevens February 25, 2014 11:23 PM
Storage Wars is a term that the popular television show has coined, but it is not the only meaning of the phrase. No, there are not different factions of the self storage industry combing their forces with plans on industry domination (at least not through the use of automatic weapons and explosives). There are, however, self storage facilities that engage in a form of ‘humane’ war each and every year. [More]

Caring for the Community a Common Theme Among Self Storage Facilities

by Kim Kilpatrick February 19, 2014 11:42 PM
It is not unusual for businesses within the same industry—self storage and otherwise-- to have similar characteristics. If the service and/or product that you provide is the same businesses are bound to be alike in structure and layout. However, while the product and structure of the business may be the same that does not mean the same principles are being applied. [More]

Self Storage Company Makes Room for the Community

by John Stevens January 31, 2014 11:29 PM
There are a lot of things that people would like to do. Most people probably want to lose weight. It’s not uncommon for folks to wish they had more time to spend with family, go back to school, or volunteer. We want to do all these things, but sometimes it is just too hard to find the room in our busy schedules to do it all. [More]

Self Storage Can Come Up Big Even When it’s Mini

by Tony Gonzalez January 29, 2014 11:23 PM
Just about everything comes in all shapes and sizes. It used to be that mobile phones nearly required a purse all their own; not they fit so well in our pockets we forget we have them sometimes. Yet the small ones that we have today can do so much more than the behemoths that were common when they first came out. [More]

Self Storage Company Appreciates the Importance of After-School Activities for Kids

by Winnie Hsiu December 18, 2013 11:29 PM
Everyone has heard the old saying about how idle hands are the devil’s workshop, playground—you get the idea. For kids (and some adults even) that is too true. Left to their own devices kids of all ages are prone to getting into trouble in some way, shape, or form—hence the importance of programs like basketball and band for high school students. [More]

It’s a Heartfelt Christmas for the Self Storage Industry

by Winnie Hsiu December 10, 2013 11:12 PM
At this time of year it is natural to think of several things like specials, food, gifts, and family. It’s also quite common to think of that random person you passed by on the street. You don’t know that person. You don’t have a clue if they are better off or worse off than you. You just see another person and think “Merry Christmas.” [More]
