If you manage a self storage facility, you've got a lot of work to do.

We understand. No two days look alike, and some days you probably feel like you have more on your plate than you have the headspace for. One thing you can do to make life easier is to keep track of your facility rounds. Don't worry if you're not sure what that looks like: our Operator Toolkit has just what you need in a Facility Rounds Checklist.

Facility Rounds Sheet

Let's face it: managing a self storage facility requires you to be a jack of all trades that keeps up with dozens of different tasks on a given day.

Whether you own your own self storage business or you're a manager for a facility, you've got a lot on your plate and you may well be the only one around to keep track of it. 

What do self storage managers do?

A basic (and probably incomplete) list of the daily tasks that make up your day when managing a self storage facility includes:

  • Checking that units are locked (or vacant) as they are meant to be
  • Greeting and interacting with existing tenants
  • Playing salesperson for prospective tenants
  • Helping new tenants sign their lease
  • Cleaning the facility, including vacant units, office, and grounds
  • Performing preventative maintenance
  • Performing reactive maintenance
  • Maintaining/checking security systems
  • Studying lien laws and setting up auctions

So, basically, you need to be able to perform about ten different roles at any given time.

That's an incredible amount of work to keep up with, and you probably don't have a coworker or someone above you helping keep track of it all. This makes it crucial to document and standardize the processes you use, especially when it comes to managing your storage units and the facility grounds.

Thankfully, we've got just what you need to get started with our Facility Rounds Checklist, part of our Operator Toolkit!

You've got a lot of work to do, and using tools to track your tasks will take some of that work off your shoulders.
While a spreadsheet can't hit the floor and make your rounds for you, it does make it so that you don't need to store all of the information up in your head.
