The Inside Self-Storage (ISS) Store, an e-commerce website providing research and education products for industry professionals, has released the “Self-Storage Maintenance Package 2019: Monthly Task Calendars and Guide.” Designed for facility managers, the bundle includes detailed, customizable monthly calendars for 2019, which outline tasks by day, week and season. It also includes a 64-page digital book containing expert advice on industry-related maintenance.
“With competition becoming ever more fierce in many markets, it’s paramount to maintain and enhance property value,” said Tony Jones, ISS Store Manager. “Not only are poorly kept facilities unattractive to tenants and prospects, they can present more safety hazards and expose operators to liability. The maintenance-calendar package is a great resource to help managers stay on top of site maintenance and scheduling throughout the year.”
The monthly task calendars are color-coded for weekly, monthly, quarterly, seasonal and annual tasks. Each page also includes a list of daily maintenance responsibilities. Some months include callout reminders and tips for things like vacant-unit inspection and door cleaning. Contents are available through a downloadable zip file, which includes 12 individual calendars in PDF and Microsoft Word formats. The customizable Word templates allow managers to alter the calendars to fit their particular maintenance schedule and needs. A no-fuss, 12-month 2019 task calendar in PDF format is also included for those who wish to print the entire year without having to access individual files.
The “Self-Storage Maintenance Guide,” in PDF format, contains 23 articles related to facility upkeep. Topics include curb appeal, general tips and tricks, door cleaning and conservation, pest control, roof care, security-component maintenance, and service outsourcing. Though the guide includes many of the same articles that were published in 2018, it also features new material for 2019.
Priced at $99, the new package is available for purchase at iss-store.com.
