When it comes to something—anything really—that people spend their hard earned money on there is one thing that they always want, simplicity. People don’t want to have to search and go through any complex or elongated process to buy or rent something; they have better things to do with their time than figure out how to give their money to someone else.
This is a message that many within the self storage industry have gotten load and clear. Many are using the power of the World Wide Web in order to make it much easier for their customers to do business.
When it comes to self storage units, people are often in need of them when moving so they are not always in the same state let alone city. That is where an online reservation service comes in handy. Proguard Self Storage recently introduced a new online reservation system making it possible for tenants to shop from the comfort of their own homes or wherever they can get access to the internet.
“At Proguard Storage, we are committed to maintaining and protecting our customers’ belongings as much as we are to the ease and comfort of their storage experiences. With our new online reservation system, our clients have the option of selecting the right storage rental choice for them, and they’re able to reserve it without ever having to step foot inside a facility…” said Blenda Stapleton, a facility manager at one of the five Proguard Self Storage facilities in Texas.
Proguard goes a step further in trying to simplify the process for its tenants by having a space calculator available online to help them figure out how big a self storage unit they need.
More and more companies are beginning to offer online reservation systems. Recently StorageMart announced that it was teaming up with USSelfStorageLocator.com to offer the service to its tenants.
“We are pleased to add StorageMart to our already impressive list ofself storage facilities. With the ever increasing popularity of online marketing, we’re confident this new business relationship will help to expose StorageMart to an even wider audience,” said Victor Dante, CEO and founder of USSelfStorageLocator.com.
The marriage is a logical choice since USSelfStorageLocator.com is a tool people can use to find self storage uits wherever they may need them. Being able to find the facility and rent it definitely makes the process much simpler for the consumer.
If there is one thing that we all know as consumers—simple is good.
