Whether you’re building from the ground up, buying an existing facility, or even selling your current facility, a self storage consultant can help you avoid common mistakes and provide valuable advice. They're also skilled when it comes to running a facility, such as training, operating procedures, taxes, legal issues, and marketing strategies.
Unless you’ve been managing a self-storage facility for years before buying or building your own, you probably have a number of questions. As the nation’s only self-storage cooperative, we’ve put together some of the top questions we get from self-storage business owners.
In this case study, we discuss the pros of using the Nokē Smart Entry system. You will discover how one storage facility brand is:
- Saving money;
- Meeting customer needs;
- And capitalizing on the benefits of using a smart entry system.
Thinking about building a storage facility? There are many considerations and boxes to check before diving in. “Look before you leap,” as the saying goes.

In this eBook, we cover the effects of consolidation on the self storage industry and explain to self storage investors how a Self Storage Cooperative can help them compete in a saturated market.
It's a pleasure to welcome Carl Touhey to the Storage News Podcast. Carl began his real estate career in 1986 selling investment real estate in Phoenix, Arizona. An investment opportunity in 1992 launched him into the self storage industry as he went on to acquire five storage facilities from 1992-1994 and owns multiple facilities today. His interest and success in fixing “problem” properties resulted in an impressive ownership track record.
