Alameda, CA (PRWEB) December 14, 2009
Self Storage Company, located in Salt Lake City, Utah, today announced the launch of a powerful new concept in services for the self storage market; a fully featured meta search tool specifically for customers seeking the best self storage locations in their neighborhood or across major areas in the United States. The search tool operates on a state by state basis. Customers seeking storage units can browse city-by-city listings or search by zip code or street address. Once they have selected a facility they can request a quote or immediately reserve a self storage unit.
“Right now customers are presented with a bewildering array of choices when they try to find the right self storage unit for their needs,” said Mitchell Cooke, Self Storage Operator in Atlanta, Georgia. “Most people find extra storage in one of two ways; they drive by a storage yard in their neighborhood, or they look on the web. There is no easy way to be sure they have found the best unit for their needs at the most attractive price.”
The Self Storage Company websites give self storage customers a powerful combination of features. These include a comprehensive list of all the storage yards, a powerful search facility that shows the closest storage units on a clickable map, unit sizes and rates, as well as real-time availability checking and online reservations from featured vendors. Self Storage Company plans to add additional customer features, including the ability to “shop and compare” – a tool that enables customers to immediately compare unit availability and pricing on up to four storage facilities at a single glance. A request-a-quote feature will enable businesses as well as residential customers to receive quotes tailored to their specific needs for single or multiple units of the same or different sizes.
Self storage providers will gain increased visibility from their free basic listings on the sites. Self Storage Company has already compiled comprehensive listings, complete with location and contact information. Participating providers can receive qualified leads. Where their own systems support the capability, customers can immediately view their available listings and make instant reservations. Premium listings and advertising opportunities are also available.
“Their goal is to make self storage units easy to find and reserve,” continued Mr. Cooke. “Improving customer experience will make everyone in our industry more successful. The easier it is to shop for a self storage facility, the more customers will use them.” Self Storage Company websites provides a basic listing for every available self storage facility. Vendors can also join lead generation and advertising programs that will increase their visibility and resultant web and walk-up traffic.
Four self storage locator websites are already operating. 3,409 California self storage are available across 678 cities. 4,292 Texas self storage facilities are available in 497 cities. A total of 786Florida self storage locations in 185 cities are available and 194 Colorado self storage facilities are available in 45 cities, with additional states to follow.
Self storage providers interested in participating in premium or advertising programs should email the Self Storage Company in their state. For the states mentioned, email addresses are info(at)storagecalifornia(dot)com, info(at)storagetexas(dot)com, info(at)flstorage(dot)com, and info(at)storagecolorado(dot)com.
Self Storage Company is a premier provider of independent self storage search tools. Self Storage Company websites list only reliable self storage providers in convenient locations, particularly in major population centers. Its search tools enable customers to find the best and closest self storage, even in remote locations. The company is located in Sandy, Utah.
