StorageUnit.com, a self-storage finder and reservation website, has been redesigned and re-launched, now allowing consumers to shop for, compare and reserve self-storage units nationwide. The site’s easy-to-use interface searches available units at almost 4,000 self-storage facilities in more than 2,000 U.S. cities. Users can search by city, state or ZIP code or by using an intersection or address.
Each facility provides real-time information about unit availability, monthly rental rates and amenities. In addition, StorageUnit.com has worked to secure special offers, discounts and coupons that can only be found on the website.
“Simplicity and transparency were two very important factors for us in the design of the website,” said Randy Yoder, director of operations. “We wanted to ensure that consumers know exactly what they are getting and provide them with an assurance that the unit they need will be available when they show up to the storage facility.”
Yoder and his associates envisioned the current design of StorageUnit.com in 2007, but it took time to build the processes and relationships necessary to provide consumers with real-time facility information. The site was launched in 2008 as an information portal. Last year it underwent a redesign that continued to provide self-storage information but also displayed facility listings. This year StorageUnit.com made strategic partnerships that allowed the site to be launched in its current form.
In addition to self-storage units, StorageUnit.com also offers mobile-storage solutions. The directory includes more than 3,000 mobile-storage locations, each with an average service area of 45 miles.
