Similar to online hotel search services, UPickStorage.com’s online tool can help simplify comparison shopping. UPickStorage.com now offers that same streamlined convenience in the market for self-storage facilities. Self-storage customers searching online for units are custom-matched with storage facilities in their areas.
The website also offers an “auction-style” interface, which enables users to enter their choices of unit size, proximity, climate control and how much they wish to pay. With complete anonymity, potential tenants can compare multiple self-storage facilities.
By listing their storage facilities on the website, self-storage operators are able to save more than 50 percent off Yellow Pages advertising, the company claims.
