A lot of Mount Dennis storage owners preach the basics, but they do not list what they are often enough. It is kind of a tricky situation. It sounds simple enough. There are a lot of basics to cover and you need to find out how to communicate the message of what you want without getting too convoluted. This will only confuse the message. Your Mount Dennis storage employees need to have a clear picture of what you want. Some find it helpful to go over the basics of what makes one company better than the other.
Think about companies that are out there who treat their companies badly. It is hard to think of them because they are not around for too long. The customer service is the first basic principle that will make or break your company. Treat your customers well and you will not know where to put all of your money. Treat your customers badly and you will soon be looking for a new line of work. This all starts with you and the message that you send to your Mount Dennis storage employees. Other articles have articulated the nuances and simplicity of good customer service.
The next basic is location. You could have all other aspects covered, but a bad location could be an obstacle that could be insurmountable. There are many reasons that Mount Dennis storage owners may choose a bad location. The main reason is price. They are just trying to save money on the initial land purchase. You are typically going to have to borrow money for the land purchase anyways so you should make sure that you get a good location in order to pay back the loan. Customers list location as the main reason that they rented somewhere. Get land in a good neighborhood in an area that is frequented by potential customers. If the Mount Dennis storage facility is close to other frequented businesses, then you will gain customers. When the time comes to rent a storage space, they will already know you and most likely will call on you first.
The security is sub par at many facilities in Ontario and the main reason is cost, once again. You should decide whether you are going to do things the right way or the cheap way. The cheap way may work in the short term, but you are going to have a long term problem with company image if you have an issue with break ins. Rattling off the security features may sound good on the phone. You can tell all callers how secure you are because of your fencing, pin code gate, and video cameras. Quality is the key. Do not take short cuts when installing security features. You will spend more money maintaining cheap equipment than you would getting it right the first time. Quality fencing is required to keep out the bad guys. A lot of facilities in Ontario just put up cheap fence which does no good. Get enough cameras to watch the entire property. Make them visible so you can deter criminals as this is probably the most important benefit of video camera surveillance. Also, make sure to get a good pin code gate. Nothing will be less attractive to customers as a gate that works most of the time.
