Self Storage Company, located in Salt Lake City, Utah, today announced that it has increased the coverage of its self storage meta search tools by adding eight additional sites to the four states included in its original launch. Joining California, Texas, Florida and Colorado are state sites for Arizona, the District of Columbia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York and Virginia.
This step reaffirms and strengthens the basic concept; 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.
“With so much to choose from, it is difficult for customers to be confident they have gotten the best deal possible on a self storage unit,” said Mark Landes of Landes Corporation, a self storage operator and developer. “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. It is hard to know whether you have gotten the best unit for your needs and the best price on it.”
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. 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. The request-a-quote feature enables 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.
“I appreciate what Self Storage Company is doing,” continued Landes. “Anything that makes a better customer experience helps our entire industry. Making choosing a self storage facility easier makes it more likely that a customer will rent one.” Vendors needing to increase their business can join lead generation and advertising programs that will increase their visibility and resultant web and walk-up traffic. Self Storage Company websites provide a basic listing for every self storage facility that can be identified.
The eight new self storage locator websites provide Arizona self storage seekers with 884 facilities in 77 Arizona cities including Phoenix, Tucson and Temple. There are 21 facilities for District of Columbia self storage and 1511 facilities across 397 cities for customers needing self storage in Illinois, with an extensive list of Chicago self storage facilities. In the east there are 557 self storage Maryland facilities in 121 cities including Baltimore, Rockville and Silver Spring , 553 self storage Massachusetts locations in 192 cities covering Boston and the surrounding area as well as cities such as Framingham, Leominster and Marlborough. For New Jersey residents there are 731 facilities with self storage in New Jersey, covering 245 cities including Cherry Hill, Edgewater, Hackensack and Trenton. New Yorkers can find 1231 facilities in 385 New York self storage cities, including New York city, Brooklyn, the Bronx and the Long Island area. For residents of the Old Dominion there are 998 Virginia self storage locations in 182 cities including Richmond, Alexandria and Falls Church .
