The California Self Storage Association (CSSA) is offering two new programs and additional benefits for its members, including a charity-donation component. The CSSA has added a section to its online store that allows members to purchase business forms and other documents with printing options through Optimal Outsource, a company that serves the property-management industry with mailing and communications solutions. The second new offering is discounted pricing on moving supplies from New Haven Moving Equipment.
Among the new benefits available through the online store is a fully customizable employee manual designed to help owner members communicate information about working conditions, employee benefits and company policies to new and current employees. Free annual updates will be provided to members in good standing, according to the CSSA.
A forms packet with six documents operators can use for their business is also available for free to CSSA members. The packet includes a partial-payment receipt, facility receipt of legal documents, occupant release and conveyance form, a corporate resolution/authorization company trustee agreement, occupant release of interest, and occupant change of address form.
CSSA has partnered with Optimal Outsource to provide an online print solution for critical operational documents purchased through the store.
New Haven Moving Equipment will offer special discounts to CSSA members on boxes, tape, locks and other moving supplies. New Haven orders must be a minimum of $500 and will be delivered at no cost to facilities within 75 miles of the company’s warehouses. New Haven has California warehouses in Los Angeles and San Leandro.
A portion of purchases from Optimal Outsource and New Haven Moving Equipment will be donated to Kure It Cancer Research, a nonprofit founded by self-storage industry veteran Barry Hoeven that is dedicated to funding kidney and other cancer research.
"We feel like this is the best time of the year to let CSSA members know about these programs and benefits since the holiday season is all about giving back,” said Erin King, executive director of the CSSA. "We love helping our members, and we love helping Kure It.”
"The CSSA continues to demonstrate their commitment to Kure It’s mission with these programs and benefits,” added Karen Jones, director of Kure It Cancer Research. "To have both Optimal Outsource and New Haven Moving Equipment willing to donate proceeds from their sales says so much about their dedication to a great cause. We are proud to partner with the CSSA and its members in the fight against underrepresented cancers.”
The association also has a new Office Depot discount program available to members.
CSSA is a nonprofit trade association dedicated to supporting the self-storage industry in California. The group offers educational events, networking opportunities, legislative advocacy and more.
