Easy Stop Storage Using StorageDefender Smart Units

Posted by Modern Storage Media on Apr 5, 2024 9:33:16 PM

For a number of years, Easy Stop Storage, a regional storage solutions provider with 25 locations across four states, had been dealing with the challenges of softening revenue and increased competition. In response, Max May, Chief Operating Officer of National Storage Solutions Management, who owns and operates Easy Stop Storage, initiated a pilot program with StorageDefender in 2022.


According to a new press release, the move proved highly successful, resulting in stabilized and increasing revenue despite lower occupancy rates. Since implementing StorageDefender Smart Units across its properties, Easy Stop Storage reports that it has achieved the following results:

  • 12% Average Premium Increase
  • 97% Tenant Smart Unit Conversion Rate
  • 5% Facility NOI improvement
  • Payback period of less than one year.


May highlighted the competitive advantage Smart Units offered his operations by positioning Easy Stop Storage as a provider of premium smart facilities. The high adoption rate among their tenants strengthened customer loyalty and improved satisfaction. "Tenants love it for the sense of peace of mind," said May. "It creates that umbilical cord for the tenant to their units, so they always know what's going on with their valuables."


He also shared his belief that the deployment of StorageDefender has also led to a significant reduction in break-ins at some locations, attributed in part to strategic signage placement and advertisement of Smart Units serving as a deterrent.


Mark Cieri, CEO of StorageDefender stated. "I am excited to see the results Max and the Easy Stop Storage team have achieved and appreciate the opportunity to continue adding this level of value to their self-storage operations with our smart technology solutions."


May commended StorageDefender's partner onboarding and support, noting their ease of collaboration, rapid response times, and comprehensive training resources are best in class.
