Self Storage Operator issues “Crazy Tuesday” alert for the Tuesday after Memorial Day.
StorageMart, one of the leaders in the self storage business has issued a “Crazy Tuesday” alert to make consumers aware of the unusually high demand for self storage units that will take place the Tuesday after Memorial Day.
Cris Burnam, StorageMart President said, “Retailers have the Thursday after Thanksgiving as their biggest day. Florists have the day before Valentine’s Day as their busiest day and greeting card makers have the Friday before Mother’s Day as their biggest day. Self storage has the Tuesday after Memorial Day.”
StorageMart has 50 self storage facilities in major markets such as the New York, Chicago, Kansas City, Twin Cities, Washington DC and Southeast Florida metropolitan areas. Its directors have been in the self storage business for 30 years. Every year, the Tuesday after Memorial Day brings a flood of call volume and a flood of walk-in traffic at self storage facilities as people are using the Memorial Day weekend to move, do chores and prepare for summer projects.
Anyone interested in renting a self storage unit for the summer is urged to call or come in before the Memorial Day weekend to avoid long lines and wait times at the front desk. A typical move-in transaction only takes a few minutes on a normal business day. On the Tuesday after Memorial Day there may be several people waiting in line to rent their storage units. Self storage property managers report that the day is “crazy” busy, hence the term “Crazy Tuesday.”
According to figures released by the Self Storage Association, some 11% of people use self storage at any given time. Most are residential customers storing personal items. Many are people moving. Some are remodeling and need space to clear their homes for the project. Some are students storing in between semesters. Others are military people preparing for deployment and many are people who just need extra room for organizing their household and seasonal items.
