How do you run your self storage business? Maybe you take online move-ins at on on-site kiosk and a part-time employee comes by just to overlock or clean out units. Maybe you have a fully-stacked call center to keep your phones open 24/7 to assist renters, track leads, and take payments. Or maybe you’re more traditional, with an on-site resident manager who works the office, meets with all new tenants, and helps maintain the property. If you’re looking for a truly unique business model, you’ll be hard pressed to find a more interesting brand than 10 Federal Storage, whose fully automated facility runs entirely without management.
