Self-storage owner/operator Andrée Jansheski and author Marsha Heckman have produced a book on the packing process that will help self-storage operators better serve their customers and help self-storage customers better pack their goods. Don’t Pack Me Is a handy reference tool that will assist facility managers in counseling their tenants. Particularly useful for self-storage operators who sell packing and moving supplies at their facilities, the fun, lighthearted guide includes organizing and inventory forms and moving suggestions. It also contains straightforward advice, gentle humor, cartoons, and true-life moving vignettes. The guide is available through Amazon.com or can be ordered wholesale at Dontpackme.com.
Jansheski and her husband, John, are the owners of Bellam Self Storage & Boxes in Marin Country, Calif. In 2006, they turned their self-storage facility into a Certified Green business that is 100 percent solar-powered.
Heckman is the author of several how-to books related to crafting, flower arranging and other topics.
Jansheski and Heckman have started a new Marin-based company, RView Creative, to produce their book and other projects.
