Win a Free Trip to Las Vegas

Posted on Oct 1 2013 - 7:13pm by Holly Robinson

I never win contests. Never. Then, a couple of years ago I entered one and won a two-night stay at a bed and breakfast inn in Carmel, California. Holy cow! The bed and breakfast was a delightful place and I had a wonderful time in Carmel.

People in the self storage industry have the opportunity to enter a contest  (that is just as wonderful) and win a free trip to Las Vegas to attend the largest self storage industry expo.

Today, MiniCo Insurance Agency opened its eleventh annual sweepstakes contest for independent agents. Agents can submit insurance applications from now (October 1) through December 31, 2013.

For each full insurance application for a self storage risk that is submitted online on MiniCo’s agent portal, the independent agent submitting the application will get one entry into the sweepstakes. So, the more applications a person submits, the more times his name is entered into the sweepstake and the more chance he has of winning.

For those interested, go to MiniCo’s portal at

Insurance is on the mind of a lot of people. Especially today. Today was the day to sign up for Obamacare health coverage. However, many people experienced technical difficulties.

New Yorkers got an “internal server error” message when they tried to sign up online.  Maryland residents were redirected to a consumer information update site that indicated that the website and the call center were experiencing “connectivity problems.” Californians were told (in English and Spanish) to come back in ‘a little bit’ because the site was experiencing a higher volume of expected users. In the afternoon (a lot longer than the stated ‘little bit’) people still couldn’t register.

People won’t get that experience when they go to MiniCo’s portal.

President and CEO Mike Schofield commented, “This is a great opportunity for agents to become familiar with our online agent portal, which significantly streamlines the submission process and makes it easier for agents to do business with MiniCo. The winning agent will have an opportunity to meet top operators from all over the nation and learn more about the self-storage industry.”

Open January 7, 2014, one prize will be randomly selected from all of the entrants. The winner will get two round-trip airline tickets to Las Vegas, two nights in a hotel, $300 in cash, and two passes to attend the Inside Self-Storage Expo. (The Expo will be held March 31 through April 1 in 2014.)

MiniCo Insurance Agency, LLC, was founded in 1974.  They provide specialty insurance products and publications for the self storage industry.
