The Storage Business Owners Alliance LLC (SBOA), a cooperative organization that enables small to mid-size self-storage businesses to enjoy enhanced buying power, has partnered with StorageClicks.com to create a new Web directory of self-storage facilities at ineedstoragenow.com. From its launch, the website will include more than 3,000 locations. Its goal is to attract potential tenants to facilities nationwide, providing customer leads for participating self-storage operators.
SBOA members as well as members of the CubeSmart Network and customers of SMD Software Inc. (SiteLink) may list their self-storage facilities on the directory for free for the first year.
The SBOA enables smaller self-storage operations to enjoy the benefits of bulk buying power. The group has grown to include more than 2,200 member facilities and 30 vendor partners. Members pay an annual membership fee to save on items such as packing and moving supplies, marketing services, payroll services, UPS shipping and more.
StorageClicks.com is an Internet-marketing platform for the self-storage industry. Its principals have more than 30 years of combined self-storage management experience.
Launched in April 2009 as the U-Store-It Network, the CubeSmart Network offers online marketing solutions for storage companies nationwide. Network members get a free listing where customers can find facility information and reserve a storage unit.
Established in 1996, SMD is the producer of SiteLink property-management software for self-storage and portable-storage operations.
