A rental-truck program can be an excellent source of ancillary income for a self-storage business. Facility operators interested in offering truck rentals to tenants will learn about the process of launching a program, what to expect and how to excel with a free whitepaper titled "Implementing Truck Rentals at Your Self-Storage Facility," offered by Inside Self-Storage (ISS) and On The Move Inc.
The free downloadable guide addresses rental-truck program types, buying vs. leasing trucks, a detailed cost analysis, potential return on investment, truck types to offer, insurance, licensing, truck graphics/marketing and the truck-rental agreement. It can be downloaded at www.insideselfstorage.com/whitepapers.
On the Move has provided a turnkey truck-rental program to the self-storage industry since 1992. The program allows facility operators to set their own rates while advertising their business via "moving billboards."
For more than 20 years, ISS has provided informational resources to self-storage owners, managers, developers and investors. Its educational offerings include a monthly magazine, an online store, annual tradeshows, an extensive website, an education institute and Self-Storage Talk, the industry’s largest online community.
