Approximately 10% of Americans rent a unit from a storage facility. Renting a unit is often bogged down by finding the right rental, then going through the lease process, and having to bring an in-person check to pay.
Not anymore; the new contactless storage rentals make it easy to rent a unit and pay for it all online. However, is contactless technology as beneficial as it seems to be?
Don’t worry! We’ve investigated the advantages of contactless technology in self-storage. That way, you can determine if contactless rentals are right for you.
Now, are you ready to get started? Here’s a quick look at the benefits of contactless storage units.
Gone are the days you have to set an appointment time, rush to get there, and have a meeting with a facility member to pick out a unit. Now, all you have to do is go onto the storage facility’s website. There you can choose the size and location you want and start filling out a lease agreement for the storage rental.
Reviewing the lease online gives you more time to review it and see if it suits your needs.
You can do this anywhere and anytime, making the process convenient for buyers and for the company. Plus, you can get your things in a storage unit quicker by going through the contactless process.
Another benefit of contactless storage units is paying online. You don’t have to worry about traveling to the facility to hand in a check; you can simply pay from your phone.
Thanks to built-in encryption, your payment information is safe and more secure than ever. You can even add default payment methods and schedule payments beforehand so you never forget to pay.
You will typically have to verify yourself to ensure you are the one authorizing payment. You may have to re-enter your CVC/CVV or click on a text/email confirmation.
Due to the contactless technology in self-storage, you will get automated alerts and reminders about your lease agreement and rental. For instance, you may get a payment reminder; status updates about your lease, or notifications if anyone uses your unique code to enter the building.
These reminders are immediately sent out to your preferred contact method. That way, you get timely notifications and updates about your storage unit and are in the loop regarding your rental.
Thanks to contactless storage, renting a storage unit has never been easier. All you have to do is visit the storage facility’s website to choose a unit, sign the lease agreement, and pay your fees.
It’s perfect for those who need a quick solution for their storage needs. Plus, since no interaction with the facility is needed, you can go in and out of the storage rental as you please.
