Key Cabinet for Your Storage Business

Having a secure key cabinet for your self storage company will not only improve the security of your operation, but it will make for a good business decision as well. How many times have you had a customer show up to their storage unit only to realize that they forgot or lost their key to the unit? It happens all the time, and a key cabinet can solve this problem.

If you provide a safe and secure key cabinet for your customers to use, you will not only improve your occupancy rate, but you’ll improve your margins as well. You can charge an extra two to five dollars a month to allow your customers to store a key in your key box. Upon showing up at the storage facility they simply provide identification and their unit number and receive their key. Providing this service gives you a leg up on the competition, and is one less thing for your customers to worry about.

And what about all of the keys that you inevitably have personally as an owner of such a business? A key box can help with that as well. By buying a 500 key cabinet rather than a smaller one, you have plenty of space for your keys to the enter the facility, maintenance rooms, your personal storage units and any other keys necessary to run your operation. With units becoming increasingly affordable, you can pay off the cost of purchase in just a year, and improve your customer benefits all at the same time.

If you are associated with any kind of storage business, I highly recommend looking into investing in a key cabinet or key box to improve the flexibility, security and bottom line of your business. The quality of your service and your customer retention could depend on it.
