Posted by Modern Storage Media on Feb 14, 2013 12:00:00 AM
Storage Post Self Storage has installed new storage technology at its Yonkers location on Saw Mill River Road: a 24-hour storage kiosk from OpenTech Alliance’s INSOMNIAC line. The kiosk is fully branded in Storage Post’s bold green and bright yellow, and allows customers to make payments, rent storage units and purchase locks.


The kiosk is located in a glass-enclosed front entrance that offers customers, and potential customers, 24-hour access every day, including holidays. With the new rental technology, Storage Post can rent units to customers even when the office is closed.

“It’s 2013, and our customers are more tech-savvy than ever. We wanted to step up our convenience offerings by adding this completely digital rental system for our on-the-go New York customers,” said Jack Chaney , Storage Post chief operating officer. “They can make payments, rent storage units and even buy storage locks, any time of day. We think it’s going to be a big hit.”

The 24-hour storage kiosk also allows current customers to update their Storage Post rental accounts and to pay monthly bills. Special features offered by the kiosk include a fingerprint scanner for optimal security; driver’s license scanner; payment processors for cards, checks and cash; a camera and microphone; a digital signature pad for authorization; and a comprehensive storage avatar named Megan who guides users through the kiosk’s processes.

The addition of a 24-hour storage kiosk will assist customers by providing fast results, even if the on-site staff is busy or gone for the day. Storage Post already offers convenience features like online bill pay, covered loading bays, in-store packing supplies free Wi-Fi and delivery acceptance at many of its locations.
