Self-storage owners in Washington, Pa., claim they’re not experiencing the same drop in business as those in other parts of the country. They also say self-storage delinquencies in the area are status quo.
Tom Evans of Route 19 Self Storage in North Strabane Township said he’s seen nothing unusual this year by way of slow payers. Drew Rosko, owner of 84 Self Storage in Somerset Township, said he's had a few customers leave who couldn't afford their rent, but his facility is still full. In fact, he’s seeing some new business. Ron Klinedinst, owner of Ron's Self Storage in South Franklin Township, said he tries to work with customers who are experiencing financial trouble. And George Ashcraft of Ashcraft Self Storage in Monongahela, Pa., claimed delinquencies are “about the same.”
All facility owners interviewed by the Observer-Reporter agreed their area has not been affected as severely as others.
