The Storage Business Owners Alliance LLC (SBOA), an organization that enables small to mid-size self-storage operators to take advantage of enhanced buying power and bulk discounts, will host a webinar on April 14 to demonstrate the automated features of its website at TheSBOA.com. The 30-minute event will take place at 2 p.m. EDT. SBOA members will learn how to use the website to access savings from dozens of vendors through pre-negotiated deals.
SBOA, launched in February, currently has more than 270 member facilities. The organization regularly adds new vendors and specials to its offerings. Members can save on expense items such as office supplies, credit card processing fees, payroll processing, and merchandise for resale.
Enrollment in the SBOA is open to any self-storage facility owner or operator. The company was founded by Morgan Hanlon, Ian Burnstein and David Levenfeld, owners of multiple self-storage facilities who realized a need for smaller operators to band together to compete with larger companies.
