Leveraging Radio for insert Storage Facility Advertiser Insight Based Ideas
Insight #1 Self-storage firms regularly deal with the dreaded problem of non-paying tenants or tenants who have abandoned their contracts. This problem typically results in a Storage Auction to empty the unit and recoup revenue. Storage Auctions are held almost every day of the week, in almost every city in America. In larger metropolitan areas, there are likely multiple storage auctions on any given day. On average, each storage facility is selling the contents of 3-6 storage units, although seeing for sale at one facility, is not at all uncommon. There is no shortage of storage units on the auction block. Storage Auctions Sources: The Economist 2012
