What Self Storage Managers Do
Your self storage manager is most likely to be at your location. You can rest easy knowing that the manager will be there if they are not available, check that. Every day, there are many responsibilities that self storage managers must take care of. This ensures self storage facilities run as smoothly and problems are minimized.
Here are some items self-storage professionals do most often:
Show Units. The main responsibility of a self storage manager is to show prospective tenants all the available units. Self-storage managers who are attentive to the tenants’ needs will then show them which units would be most appropriate. They will advise you as to whether your items should be stored outside or inside, and which unit size will work best.
Explain Pricing and Procedure They will review the available payment options as well as how to use their gate security code.
Inforce rules and payment: The self storage manager will enforce all rules and regulations at the facility and make sure that everyone pays their self storage rental fees on-time. This is a constant effort, which can take up the most amount of time. But this is perhaps the most important part that a self storage manager does. Managers who violate the rules and don’t pay rents can quickly lose their job.
* Organizing an Auction When a tenant is not able to pay their storage rent on time, the law allows the storage facility to put the contents up for auction to recover any losses. When the auction occurs, the organizer of the storage unit will have to do the organizing. This will involve several steps by the self-storage manager, such as giving all notices to tenants, publishing the auction announcement in the local paper, hiring an auctioneer, and organizing the bidding.
