  • We're excited about the opportunity to transfer our knowledge to the INSOMNIAC Live! call center.  SkilCheck will provide strategic planning and leadership training to call center management and customized computer based training courses for their internal team of Storage Counselors to develop a sharper and more competitive process to sell and service self-storage customers.

  • On average, our largest store is producing 12 additional rentals per month through the call center.  Other properties average about 5-7 additional rentals monthly per store, resulting in a 14% same-store sales increase in 2013. With the call center, we get more income from rentals, gain occupancy and raise rates when occupancies get higher.

  • “In the month of November, the kiosk conducted more new rental transactions than I did, with the earliest transaction at 6:45 AM.”
