Unmanned Self Storage Misconceptions

Moving


Unmanned self-storage properties like Topcity storage are new in the industry and they have a few misconceptions that we would like to clear up. Here are the top five misconceptions on unmanned self storages: 1. Customers Need Help Figuring Out Unit Size- We have made a simple solution in helping our customers with this problem. On our website at Topcity we have a interactive storage unit calculator tool that our customers can use that makes picking a unit simple. Also, after customers have picked the right storage size they can use our facility map to pick a storage location. If the customer still needs help no problem, TopCity is always here for you. Give us a call, or even text with any questions. 2. Unmanned Properties Must Be Gated-This is a misconseption that we hope to change. Many unmanned properties are high-functioning and very secure, even without gates and fences. Security goes beyond fences and gating. If the facility is in a well-monitored, high-traffic area where crime is less likely to take place, then the facility may not need to be gated. With new technology, like SecurGuard Electronic Locks, as utilized by TopCityStorage security fencing is not necessary. Electronic locks, keypads, lighting, and surveillance is just as secure as a gated self storage. 3. Unmanned Properties Have More Security Issues- Security is a concern at most self storage locations. Unmanned properties take extra steps in taking measures to ensure that their customers belongings are safe. These steps include keeping the facility well-lit at night, utilizing SecurGuard Electronic Locks, using security cameras and carefully monitoring the crime activity in the area. 4. Unmanned Properties Have Terrible Customer Service-TopCity thrives on trying to make their customers satisfied. We take many steps to help our customer service. Customers are able to complete the move-in process at their own convenience 24/7 using online tools, which is much easier than calling and setting up an appointment. Plus, the human element is still available ...

Time Crunch- Packing and unpacking can take up plenty of time. Sometimes, we don't have the luxury of getting much notice before we have to move out of our current home. One way to save some time is to rent a unit and start storing items in it as soon as you have access, prior to moving day. Packing up any items you don't need on a daily basis or that you can live without prior to moving will give you a leg up. If you rent from a place like TopCity Storage, Topeka, KS you will have a digital key sharing app. With this app you can share your digital key with friends and family members who are helping you move and while one person is moving truck loads of items for you others can be packing more stuff up, this is a big timesaver.
