After two years of preparation, Self Storage Base has launched its new website that will allow consumers to comparison shop available storage options. Selfstoragebase.com helps customers choose between self-storage, onsite mobile storage and warehouse-style mobile storage.
The website's database includes more than 40,000 companies. Users can compare pricing, sizes, features and benefits of self-storage and mobile storage, right on the same page. They can also filter listings based on distance or specific features, such as climate control or drive-up access.
According to Self Storage Base, an onsite mobile-storage unit is generally an 8-by-20 or 8-by-40-foot container that is dropped off and kept at the customer's property. The container is protected from the elements, and customers have easy access. With warehouse-style mobile storage, customers store their belongings in a storage container that is transferred to a local warehouse until it is needed. The lack of ready accessibility can be a drawback; however, the these containers are a good option for customers who are moving from one location to another.
For a monthly fee, Self Storage Base will also allow storage companies to market their products and services to its website visitors. The company's marketing package of $79.99 per month includes unlimited phone and e-mail leads, an admin portal where operators can manage their listings and listen to phone leads, and upgraded listings that include facility photos, promotions and more.
