Mike Jones, Vice President of USstoragesearch.com, shared “The adaptation of the self storage industry to online conversions in the form of storage unit reservations has occurred remarkably quickly. Over the last couple of years the industry recognized the potential for more online conversions in this area and has adapted its technology, marketing practices and sales techniques to capitalize on a great opportunity to keep their storage units full and reach more potential tenants. This change has benefited not only storage operators but also consumers who can easily book the storage unit they need from the comfort of their home or office. We really applaud the storage community for their quick adoption of the online reservation process”.
