It’s been a year of endless calamities, and self-storage operators have faced quite an array, from COVID-19 shutdowns to raging wildfires to destructive hurricanes and other storms. We’ve also seen vehicles slamming into storage buildings (including a helicopter), lots of break-ins, arson, explosions, construction accidents and even bears ripping unit doors off their hinges! It seems there’s no limit on the kinds of catastrophes that can occur at a storage business.

In this this thread on Self-Storage Talk, the industry’s largest online community, members are sharing the misfortunes they’ve squared off against this year and how they managed them. They’re also talking about how they plan to be better prepared in 2021, no matter what comes their way. See what you can add to and learn from this eye-opening discussion.
