    When I worked at a self storage facility in college,

    I never enjoyed chasing down late payments. Most of the time people would simply forget to pay. Sometimes it was no simple task to get them to drop by the facility to make a payment. We have found this is normally the case at most facilities.

    If the facility is big then managers may spend the whole month tracking down delinquent payments.

    StoragePug + SiteLink API Integration: Offer Tenant Insurance on your Self Storage Website

    Your browser does not support SVG Matt Huddleston

    Offering tenant insurance for your self storage facility increase your profits for your facility. It increases revenue by giving a chance at proverbial "checkout" to giving clients another avenue to spend more money. 

    This money spent, however, is money well spent in the eyes of a consumer. This is not a gimmick, people have differing levels of value and a tenant will know if they are or are not storing things of importance to them when using your storage unit. The likelihood is, that if a tenant feels they are storing things that they need to protect then they will opt-in for tenant insurance. 

    Offering your tenants peace of mind when they store their stuff on your property. This value and peace of mind is the foundation of a quality relationship between renter and rentee. 

    [SiteLink API Integration] Payment Portal: Prepay for a Unit

    When customers know how long they will stay or simply don't want to deal with paying month-to-month, we recommend offering prepayment options. Paying for months or periods of time in advance, and tenants do this so to mitigate any risk of late fees or so to budget their money more appropriately. 

    One of the neat features of the Payment Portal is we allow tenants to prepay up to 12 months in advance, making it easy on them while decrease the number delinquencies and collection calls. Keep your clients happy through your self storage website.
