Online self-storage auction platform SelfStorageAuction.com has partnered with The Storage Group (TSG), a digital-marketing and software provider serving the self-storage industry, to facilitate online auctions for TSG users. The SelfStorageAuction platform will be integrated with TSG’s standard, custom and “Pinnacle” Web-design offerings, according to a press release.
“Marketing needs in this industry have become a necessity,” said Jim Grant, CEO of SelfStorageAuction, which offers an eBay-style format that allows facility operators to post pictures and videos of for-sale units and their contents. Buyers can search and place bids via desktop or mobile devices.
“We’re excited to partner with SelfStorageAuction,” said Steve Lucas, CEO of TSG. “It’s clear that facility owners are always looking for simple and efficient ways to advertise their live-auction units. Providing them with SelfStorageAuction gives them the opportunity to do that. This partnership is a win-win.”
SelfStorageAuction.com provides information about online and live onsite auctions at participating self-storage facilities in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States. It was launched in February 2017 by Grant.
Based in Altamonte Springs, Fla., TSG provides online tools and marketing solutions including local-listing management, mobile websites, online rentals, pay-per-click advertising, search engine optimization, social media marketing and website development.
