THE PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE OF SELF-STORAGE
July 13th, 2021
THE STORAGE INDUSTRY IS GETTING MORE SOPHISTICATED
In the past, the self-storage industry wasn’t necessary something you looked at with fondness. Just think about one of the first times you drove past a storage facility.
You probably remember seeing rows and rows of steel buildings with large garage doors, weeds growing through the asphalt, no person in sight, and a serious lack of security.
We get it! A lot of people get bad vibes with the thought of self-storage and the negative stigma that comes along with it.
But today, that vision of the storage industry is dying off and technology is paving the way for a brighter future.
Today’s Self-Storage Industry
The self-storage industry is on the rise and ridding itself of the bad rap from yesteryear.
Modern Storage is the perfect example of how times are changing.
Here at Modern Storage, we offer top-of-the-line storage solutions. From our beautiful-modernized facilities to our out-of-this-world customer service, we have changed the self-storage scene in Little Rock for the better.
In a nutshell, we think of the unthinkable and offer more than just storage for our customers.
Modern Storage for Modern Customers
At Modern Storage we put the customer first always. You can see the difference from the moment you decide you need to rent a storage unit:
- When you start browsing our website, you will notice we have chat bot on standby to assist you. See the cute little robot on the bottom of your screen? Let it help you find the perfect storage unit!
- Once you find the type of storage unit you’re looking for, you can reserve it right now online. You can even move in online!
- Before you make your big move, you have to pack up all your stuff, right? Never fear that you will run out of boxes, bubble wrap, or tape, because we have all the moving supplies you need.
- Need help moving all your stuff to our storage facility? Take advantage of our free box truck, available only to new customers.
- At the security gate, you will input your unique customer code to enter the facility. This way, we always know who is coming and going. Immediately, you should also notice we have dozens of 24-hour surveillance cameras monitoring your every move.
- Feeling a little parched? Need a boost of energy to finish your move? At our West Little Rock location, you can have free water, coffee, and cookies in our lobby anytime the office is open.
What’s the best part, you might ask? How about the fact that all this comes with a price that resembles the competition (even if they don’t offer all the modern-day services and amenities we do!).
That’s right! We don’t believe in marking up our prices or making you pay a premium for the location of your storage unit.
We hope this contributes to your sense of security and trust in self-storage again. After all, we are here to serve you and protect you for as long as you need us.
Whether you need a storage unit for two months or twenty years, you deserve to know we have your back.
Tomorrow’s Self-Storage Industry
Speaking of the future, just last month, our team attended the annual Inside Self-Storage World Expo in Las Vegas. The convention was incredible, and we can say with certainty that the self-storage industry has a very bright future.
The biggest reason why we feel this way is due to the incredible technology we witnessed throughout the event. Smart locks, quick-open doors, mobile apps, software solutions, and more were all on display.
Pretty exciting stuff, right?
If you’re ready to make a move and clear some clutter, find a Modern Storage facility near you and reserve a storage unit. You will not be disappointed!
