Client Testimony

Ellis Self Storage

Ellis Self Storage: “Our self storage business had reached a plateau of 75% occupancy and despite our best efforts we were unable to increase occupancy levels. After many months of failing to increase occupancy levels we decided to give Self StorageWorks a try. Within four months of activating our program we reached our goal of 95% occupancy—two months ahead of schedule! Self StorageWorks’ innovative marketing, management and operational solutions completely transformed our business and we can’t recommend their services highly enough!”
Ralph Ogden, Owner, Ellis Self Storage

Studies include a 45-year history of self storage, complete analysis of the competitive market, a comprehensive supply and demand analysis, a photo gallery of the subject property and all competitors, recommendations, conclusion, and the Self StorageWorks guarantee that validates all information included in the study, as well as the performance of your approved site.
