Self-Storage Talk Featured Thread: Vetting and Hiring Service Contractors


As your self-storage facility ages, it’ll need repairs and possibly some renovation. Necessary tasks will range from simple things like painting and adjusting door springs to more invasive projects like roof replacement or camera installation. Some jobs you’ll be able to handle yourself with facility staff, while others will require the assistance of a professional, whether it be an electrician, plumber, landscaper, builder, etc. When hiring that service contractor, how do you ensure quality workmanship and good service at a reasonable price?

In a recent thread on Self-Storage Talk, the industry’s largest online community, members are discussing how they find, vet and hire contractors for jobs big and small. Get and share tips on negotiating terms and price, questions to ask, and other things you need to know before signing any contract. Your peers will help you get the best deal, not taken for a ride!
