Quick Links




Online Rental:  To go along with Online payment and Online reservation we now offer Online Rental.  Allowing customers to rent a unit at their discretion without the need of a Self Storage employee being on site.   


Mobile:  As more and more people use mobile devices, we are adding to Space Control's mobile access features.  The newest addition is "Individual Rate analysis Report". Rental 


Space Control's online products are providing many benefits to our self-storage customers.  The latest addition is Online Rental.  Your prospects can rent a unit, reserve a unit and make a payment from any device including their smartphone.  That means you are open for business 24/7.


While Online Rental doesn't replace your current manager, it does make it so a person can move in without assistance at any time.  It also means you can compete with those competitors offering kiosks.


In addition to never being "Closed," your website will get a boost from having interactivity.  We've had customers go from Page 2 of a Google search to Page 1 just by adding online payment and online reservation.  More and more people are using the internet to search for everything-including self-storage.  The aggregators are taking the top spots in Google searches but you need to be right below them or you may not be seen.


To see a demonstration of any of our online products, call Lois Brown at 800-663-8688 or e-mail her at
