There is a comfort that comes with a brand name that has a great reputation, especially if you have personally experienced a good business relationship with a national self storage . When you need that service again, or someone you know needs information on this industry, no matter what part of the country you are in, you are likely to use or refer the same chain again, due to familiarity and previous experience.
Branding is not just slapping a logo on a sign and duplicating it everywhere. It implies a level of service, and a quality of goods that operates at an established level of set standards. Consumers expect to have the same experience again with a national self storage place. Whenever you see their advertising campaign commercials and advertisements you acknowledge it and recognize it anywhere you go and feel good about it. A good business relationship will out way any introductory special another company offers when it comes to someone else taking care of your property.
A national self storage ad represents a successful business model which can easily be replicated to be successful. As long as you maintain the quality standards of the initial set up of the location and building, back it up with training for the managers and staff and initiate corporate directives regarding marketing campaigns the store will turn a profit. Obviously security measures which are incorporated in the original business model include a secure gate, fencing and maintaining key pad coded access to the property and buildings along with the addition of video surveillance and door alarms. Setting access hours which are convenient for tenants and security measures that keep people safe while on property are important relationship builders. Customers and consumers keep getting more and more sophisticated when it comes to shopping. Especially when accessing information on the internet.
For management teams operating a national or Collingwood storage facility, not only is it important to provide them with your brand training and customer service standards, it is always a good idea for them to build an open rapport with the local police and fire department. Offering those ongoing specials as a good faith measure to assist in keeping communication lines open is always a good idea. Informing the local law enforcement as to the access hours of the business can be very beneficial at night, when the police are driving their surveillance beats, so they know immediately when people are not supposed to be on your property. Make sure these officers are equipped with a telephone number in case of an on property emergency. No matter how many times you explain it, there are some people whom will accidentally get locked inside the property gates, whether they lose track of time or they have vehicle problems. Worse yet, officers may detect someone trying to break in.
Consumer trust goes a long way in maintaining the same customers and ongoing referrals over the years. As a customer, you trust the level of service will be offered and maintained up to your level of expectation which was established from your last personal experience. Consumers are more likely to recommend a national self storage firm to a friend or family member needing the same service, as it is typically not a service someone looks into out of curiosity unless they need it.
