Right Move Storage LLC, a real estate firm specializing in the acquisition, development, management and operation of self-storage facilities, is offering new tenants at its owned and managed properties free, unlimited cloud storage through VaultDrop LLC. Customers can use the service to store documents, music, photos and videos for sharing with friends and family. They can also use it to receive their storage invoices and other information, according to a press release.
“This is a ground-breaking idea,” said Darren Kelley, president of Right Move Storage. "It was first presented to me by A.J. Esmailzadeh, co-founder of VaultDrop. We began working together to offer storage owners a unique product, which creates incremental revenue and profit for the owner, while also providing an amenity to help them gain and retain customers."
In addition to being a value-added benefit to renting a unit, the add-on service has created more interaction between tenants and facility managers, Kelley said. "Since implementing VaultDrop across our self-storage portfolio, our properties are realizing two to three additional rentals per month and generating incremental revenue, much like our tenant-insurance program,” he added. “We see this as a competitive edge."
VaultDrop’s free unlimited cloud storage will also be offered to all registrants of the Inside Self-Storage World Expo in Las Vegas, April 10-13, where the company will give a Vendor Presentation titled, “The Next Great Ancillary Product: Cloud Data Storage.” Show attendees who take advantage of the offer will enjoy free storage through April 31, 2018. Upon expiration, they can continue their subscription for $4.99 per month. Additional free offers may also be available at that time.
Launched in 2016, VaultDrop provides secure, unlimited cloud storage, according to the release. Accounts are encrypted with contents divided and stored across multiple independently operated servers.
Founded in 2013 and headquartered in Houston, Right Move Storage operates as Right Move Self Storage. It manages storage properties in California, Louisiana and Texas. The company is seeking acquisition and development opportunities nationwide.
