Being the Best is One Way to Separate From the Pack in the Self Storage Industry

As a job applicant you have to figure out what can make you stick out and be noticed over the rest. If you don’t it is likely that your resume will get lost in the shuffle since it looks so much like everyone else. That’s expected to a degree since like minded individuals are going to apply for a job, but how do you really stand out when everyone else is so similar?

The self storage industry can struggle with a similar issue. Essentially everyone is offering the same basic product—space. People that need some empty space for whatever reason over a certain period of time are going to find their way to a self storage facility. The trick can be in making them pick your facility over everyone else’s.

One way is by simply being the best. Not just because the facility owner says so; no, because the people say so.

For example, in Western Washington a local news station—King5—named Hansen Brothers the No. 1 mover as well as self storage company of Western Washington. It’s the second year in row the company has been named the best in the self storage category.

“It’s an honor to be recognized again by such a highly regarded local competition in two different categories,” said Larry Nelsen, Hansen Bros. owner and president. “It speaks volumes of our staff and their commitment to helping make our customers’ moving process a little easier. We are extremely grateful to our customers who took the time to vote and share their experiences using Hansen Bros.”

When people are looking for a self storage facility and have more than one to choose from which one do you think they are going to pick? The one that has been labeled the best of course!

Amazing Spaces in Texas is well aware of this concept and has been making use of it for years. Their Woodlands facility has been named the best in the area for the last four years.

“Our entire Amazing Spaces team appreciates our wonderful, loyal customers at our Woodlands location, and we thank them for voting us Best in The Woodlands for the fourth year in a row!” said Joe Ordanes, the Woodlands facility manager. “…winning this award year over year tells us that our dedication to high quality and professional service is appreciated and valued in The Woodlands area.”
