Ease of access for self storage customers and managers
Storelocal has partnered with Janus International to give self-storage operators and customers more options. Self storage operators can choose to run a partially-staffed or entirely unmanned facility. Customers can choose the level of service or automation they prefer. Together, Storelocal and Janus International are giving more members of the self-storage industry an introduction to access control that goes beyond the gated entrance.
Spend less time dealing with collections
Your current routines for collections could be wasting valuable man hours. By harnessing the power of a smarter, more efficient collections system, especially one that features an SMS and voice notification platform, you can automate your past-due collection cycle and focus on other tasks.
VaultDrop helps you grow your business by offering even more value to your renters and prospective renters. For a small monthly fee, you can offer all of your tenants unlimited secure cloud storage to store all their precious photos and files from their smartphones and computers. This extra service will attract more renters, let you charge more, and make renters stay longer.
Better doors means a better storage facility
The door to a storage unit just might be the most important self-storage feature of all. Storelocal recognizes this, and that’s why we’ve partnered with Janus International. As the self-storage industry grows, doors must be modified to handle increased traffic and demands for increased quality. Janus International developed R3 (Restore, Rebuild, Replace) to modify outdated doors, rebuild doors to meet code and replace doors that just aren’t cutting it anymore.

Lighting that’s cost effective and energy efficient
What’s one overlooked yet crucial element that every good storage facility has? Great lighting. Customers feel more comfortable storing at facilities that are well lit. If you’re looking for an attractive, effective lighting solution that also happens to be less expensive and more green, look no further than LED lighting.
Better branding, better curb appeal
In a growing self-storage market, curb appeal and branding cannot be overlooked. This is why self-storage painting services can offer your facility more than just a fresh coat of paint. Whether you’re looking to spruce up the exterior of your self-storage office or opt for an entirely new color scheme on every single building at your facility, choosing a quality painting service can make your business stand out.

This solution is perfect for value-conscious, knowledgeable and savvy self storage operators.
“We have done many, many self storage facilities across the country for less than half the cost of a traditional re-roof, with no disruption, and yet issued the same, if not longer and better warranties than a traditional re-roof.” -Jake Levin, VP of Business Development, Polo International
Making self storage auctions simpler
Storage Wars fans look forward to self-storage auctions, but industry insiders know that the actual process involves a lot more work than the popular TV show lets on.
