USStorageUnits.com, an online directory that helps consumers find and choose self-storage facilities in North America, introduced a free contactless process for the properties in its system. The action is a direct response to the growing need for touch-free business services in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, according to a press release.
Users can choose their unit size, facility features and location online, then pay for their selections without ever interacting in person with anyone from the storage property. Once the transaction is complete, the customer can access his unit immediately.
“We are pleased to be able to do our part in flattening the curve by providing the public with safe and convenient options that are within social-distancing guidelines,” said CEO and founder Victor Dante. “Renting a self-storage unit using this process is the best way to ensure that our customers keep safe and reduce their risk of exposure to COVID-19.”
USStorageUnits.com allows customers to locate, compare and reserve a self-storage unit online or over the phone at more than 7,500 locations. The platform integrates with all major property-management software systems, according to the source, plus the ability to pull data and push reservations in real time.
