So you think You Don’t Need Storage….

The day will come that everyone will use a Storage Facility at least once ad probably more in their lifetime. Most people think that renting a Storage unit is only for times of moving. NOT SO. We here at StoreRight Self Storage at 6400 State Road 544 in Winter Haven, Florida understand there are many many, many reasons why people use Storage. In addition to moving, there may be a new baby on the way and that means making space for all the things a baby requires. You need Storage. Company may be coming and of course you want your home to look good and not be cluttered, so put the excess in  Storage. The kids are going off to College and don’t want their dorm room cluttered with their stuff, so they leave it at your house and you were hoping to turn their room into a craft room for yourself. So..put their stuff in Storage and enjoy your new craft room! You just bought a new car and the garage is jam-packed wth other stuff you might need now and again. Best choice–clean out the garage and put that stuff in Storage so you can park that new car in the garage to protect it from the hot Florida sun. Mom and Dad are getting older and shouldn’t be alone, but don’t really want or need to go into assisted living, gotta make room for their stuff and that requires more room that a baby sometimes! You need Storage. Your favorite Aunt has left you her collection of Salt and Pepper Shakers, which you’ve always loved and admired, but have no where to put them. You need Storage. The children have all left home to be on their own and it’s time to consider down-sizing- you need Storage. After all, what are you going to do with all the heir looms you are keeping for the kids, but they have no room for them just now? You definitely need Storage. Oh, and what about the things you just can’t part with because they bring so many happy memories to mind? Keeping memories are important. You need Storage. Don’t forget about Hubbies favorite things—golf clubs, extra pipe and fittings, tools, etc. They mean a lot to him. You need Storage. Maybe you are a truck driver who spends most of your time living in your truck, but need some place to put extra clothes and personal items or a Teacher who needs to put extra school supplie someplace. Climate Control Storage is the perfect answer. Even storing that motorcycle or antique car can give you more space at home. Last, but not least, remember to check out the outside parking area. StoreRight Self Storge has ample, secure, protected outside parking Storage for your RV’s, boats/trailers and all the other fun things you have. I could probably go on and on, but if you still think you don’t need Storage, you are either the neatest person in your neighborhood or you have 4 sheds in your back yard. I do hope StoreRight has made you smile while you were reading this and don’t forget….you DO NEED STORAGE… and he best place to go is StoreRight Self Storage at 6400 Stare Road 544 Winter Haven, Fl. See you SOON!!!!

Storage Facility Customer Service

As the Manager of StoreRight Self Storage Winter Haven 4, one of my many responsibilities is to write a monthly blog with reference to the storge business. It’s my understanding this blog, along with other marketing agendas will help push our storage name and business closer to the top of the list with search enginge locators, which in turn will give us more exposure when someone is looking for storage. I’m sure that is all true, but I have found in my 14 years of Storage Management experience that the one thing that will always, without fail, put the name of any storage facility at the top of consumers list is “Customer Service.”

Our tenants at StoreRight Self Storage have grown to expect exceptional, professional customer service. What ever else we may succeed at, real customer service with a real smile is always our goal.

When a tenant comes to us, it is usually because someone they know has highly recommended us. Some of our tenants have rented storage units several times over the years and every time we welcome them backand ask why they chose us, again the answer is always the same—- We like this storage facility and the way we are treated and cared about by the StoreRight Self Storage staff. We at StoreRight Self Storage Winter Haven 4 have made so many “friends” over the years with those who were first our tenants. We enjoy talking with them about their lives and families. After all, they are part of the StoreRight family the minute they walk in our door. We are never too busy for our tenants – even if we have deadlines to meet for all our marketing and goal keeping responsibilities. We know and understand that without tenants, there would be no need for storage, so that is what we base our attention on – our tenants and their needs. We strive to treat them the same way we would treat our own biological families and the way we, ourselves, would like to be treated.

We at StoreRight Self Storage Winter Haven 4 believe we know the secret to successful rental storage numbers. I’m not sure who even reads these blogs, if anybody, but if by chance you are readig this, stop by, say hello and meet our staff. You will know in a minute what sets us apart from other storage facilities. So, til next blog time next month, try to treat others with respect and courtesy and you will see a change in your life.

The StoreRight Christmas Song

Sing to the tune of

“GRANDMA GOT RUN OVER BY A REINDEER”

 

Grandma was an avid junk collector

Anything and everything she’d see

Her house was like a museum

Right down to the fake papaya tree

 

We all knew the day was coming

We’d inherit all her stuff

So we called StoreRight Storage

Hope two units are enough

 

All the folks at StoreRight love us

When we talk about our fate

Just rented one more unit

Think this makes it number eight

 

Grandma was an avid junk collector

Bears and chimes and other shiny things

Found an old time Christmas village

Stuck beneath a set of angel wings

 

Every day it seems much harder

To put myself in Grandma’s shoes

What’d she see in pink flamingos

Guess they chased away her blues

 

Every week I go to StoreRight

Just to look at Grandma’s stuff

Wonder how I did without it

I just can’t seem to get enough

 

Grandma was an avid junk collector

With heart and soul and oh so full of love

She could spot a “gem” in a minute

Now she’s teaching me from up above

 

Get yourself to StoreRight storage

For you know you have some junk

Special things that you cherish

Keep them safe inside that trunk

 

Thanks to all the folks at StoreRight

I can afford to carry on

The tradition of my Grandma

An a collection to build upon

 

Grandma was an avid junk collector

And my collecting future’s looking bright

Any time I need another Storage

I just call my friends down at StoreRight

 

 

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL FROM ALL AT STORERIGHT

Storage

The word storage, according to Webster’s Dictionary, comes from the word store- to put aside for future use or for safe keeping. Thus, storage has been around for a long time. The Human Race has used storage in many ways and many places. When we buy a home, women look for storage inside the home- closets and cupboard space. Men look for storage space outside the home- garages, sheds and areas in the yard. Even kids check out storage space in their intended bedrooms- corners of the closet, under the bed, and even in the middle of the room. No matter who we are or where we live, we are a species that needs storage.

We need storage because we all have our own personal stuff that is important to us. Whether it be keepsakes or collectibles, too much furniture, or just stuff we think we may need one day. No matter the reason, the need for storage is part of our lives. We leave our cars parked outside of the garage in the heat, rain and even hurricanes so we can store everything else we cannot part with inside the garage. Our closets are stacked so full it sometimes becomes dangerous to open the door.

The solution to this need to store our stuff was answered by the building and growth of storage facilities. It was the perfect solution. We could keep everything that was near and dear to us or that we felt we may need one day and still have our closets, garages, etc. for the things that belong in them, like clothes and cars. Not only could we put our needed possessions into storage but we could also store our holiday decorations. This frees up even more space in our homes, which relieves us of clutter and gives us the feeling of a neater, more spacious abode . That, in turn, whether we realize it or not, actually gives us a feeling of accomplishment. It enables us to find what we are looking for in the closet or cupboard and we can even vacuum under the bed. We can park our cars in the gagrage, which is more protective and could lead to a longer life for our cars. It’s easier to keep our homes looking neater and cleaner.

In my opinion, storage is a needed and necessary part of living. Besides from the things already mentioned, we need storage when we move or have a catastrophic emergency such as a fire or flooding to name a few. There are many reasons why people need and use storage. I am sure there are many more than than those I have touched on. Whatever your reason for choosing to store your possessions in a storage facility, welcome to the club. We are all members and will all have a need to use a storage facility at least once in our lives.

I have been a storage facility manager for 13 years, so here’s a few tips to help make your storage experience easier when it’s your turn to rent a storage unit.

  1. Location – find a facility close to your home or that you drive by everyday.
  2. Management – talk to the staff – choose locations that have friendly, knowledgeable staff to help you.
  3. Size – don’t get a unit that is too small to save on cost and don’t get a unit that is too large for your needs. Management should be able to help you with this.
  4. Cleanliness and Security – if the facility looks clean as you enter the premises, chances are the units will be the same. Find a facility that has security and video monitoring.
  5. Pest Control – a must at storage facilities.
  6. Price – the lowest price may not always be the best price. It may be worth paying a few extra dollars a month for a unit at a facility that offers all of the above plus later gate access and rent specials.

Happy Storage!

Movies

When I was a child and young adult, going to the movies was a treat that only occurred on occasion. They were always family oriented movies or westerns or horror movies. Because we knew it was only a movie and not really true, the horror ones were more to scare us a little so we could tease each other about being scared. It was fun, entertaining and a great activity.  Now that I am grown and have children, grandchildren and great-granchildren, I still only go to the movies on occasion. Mostly because I’d rather spend the time enjoying them  than sitting in a theatre. However, I have gone to a few, which I thought would be funny and interesting. I was amazed at how many of them had such vulgar language ( I guess the movie makers thought it made the movie funnier) throughout the entire movie. It was difficult for me to even laugh at something that would otherwise have been very funny to me. I know what you’re thinking– this is how the world is today grandma. Well, I beg to differ. A movie can be funny , exciting, interesting, even informative without all the sexual content, vulgar language and suggestive ideas that are influencing our children. I wish the movie industry would take the time to look around and really see how influencial they are on the world, especially the young and impressionable. Do they use this kind of content and language only because they think it sells? I am sure the movies are a big part of alot of peoples’ lives. They enjoy getting out and watching that big screen and getting blasted out of their seats with the sound. It’ might even be the most excitement some people have in their lives. I am not condemning going to the movies. I’m just saying it should be a pleasant and pleasurable experience that leaves a worthwhile thought or two in your mind and maybe make you more appreciative of who you are and how you live your life or to be  able to laugh at yourself once in a while. The next time you go to the movies, pay attention to the language, the suggestive content ( even in some the kids movies) and be honest about it. ..If it truly was a good movie….wouldn’t it have been just as good without all the added imperfections the movie world insists upon being part of our lives if we “go to the movies”.
