But since many Storitz customers have never rented self-storage before, they often have questions that cannot be easily answered on the site directly, or even with a series of concise FAQs. For those customers who want to conduct more thorough research on the self-storage rental process without endlessly searching the Internet for tips and tricks, Storitz is pleased to announce a blog series that will address the intricacies of self-storage use and answer many consumer questions: from the very broad to the very specific.

“How to Use Self-Storage” will be a 5-part series covering everything from how to choose what size storage unit will suit a customer’s needs to how to best prepare belongings for move to a storage unit. For instance, experts suggest cataloging everything that is being moved into storage but most consumers would not think to do that and end up losing track of what it is that they’ve packed away. So Storitz is utilizing its popular and groundbreaking self-storage blog to provide continued support to its customers. The Storitz blog staff will work closely with CEO Adrian Comstock who, during his tenure as VP of Operations at Magellan Storage “observed and absorbed many simple solutions for consumers moving in to self-storage that can make the process much more efficient and less stressful” and looks forward to sharing them with Storitz customers.

Furthermore, Storitz encourages blog readers to comment and ask questions that they may still have, directly addressing those consumers that are engaging with the series. “How to Use Self Storage” will serve as a reference document for storage customers across the country and can constantly be updated and added to due to the flexible nature of blogging. Yvonne Condes, a Los Angeles-area mother of two who blogs at, notes that her house is “clutter central” and that “The idea of a storage unit is appealing, but I don't know enough about it.” She is exactly the kind of consumer that Storitz is aiming to reach with this series.

With a storage blog that is already reaching readers from across the U.S., this series indicates an effort to utilize blogging as yet another interactive channel for excellent customer service from Storitz. The blog series will join Storitz’s traditional phone customer service, newly integrated click-to-chat Web functionality as well as its Twitter and Facebook communications/postings, on the cutting-edge of instantaneous reaction to consumer desires and demands.
