Self Storage Titans Pool Expertise to Launch Industry-First, Subscription-Based, Consulting Network

Date: 4/8/2019

 Ask The Storage Experts, a self storage industry consulting network, launches “industry first” subscription-based membership. Members have direct access to subject field experts via phone and email. Ask The Storage Experts is founded by Cynthia Ashby, owner of Dynamic Self Storage Solutions.

Ask The Storage Experts addresses the resource disparity between larger and smaller operators. Not everyone needs a full-service management company or has a large consulting project. Issues can and do arise frequently. Ask The Storage Experts is designed to give operators access to answers and guidance through an affordable, fixed, monthly or annual investment. This industry-first provides small and single location owners a network to expand their support base at an affordable rate without having to expand their staff.

“Many of our clients are owners of 1-10 facilities and do not have large corporate offices with extensive support services. Several are understaffed or even one-person companies that lack the bandwidth or skills needed to accommodate client requests and business demands,” remarked Cindy Ashby, Founder of Ask the Storage Experts. “This often leads to customer frustration and churn. Ask The Storage Experts provides a competitive advantage by leveraging expertise in all areas of the storage industry.”

Unlike traditional staff augmentation or contractor arrangements, the Ask The Storage Experts Network is not limited to a single skillset. Membership includes access to collective knowledge and expertise from a growing roster of talented professionals as needed for questions and insight. Areas of current expertise include marketing, revenue management, vendor matching, budgeting, human resources, project management, training, accounting, delinquent tenant management, as well as data and business analysis and day to day operations. The Experts and Affiliates of Ask The Storage Experts offer all of their services to subscribers in good standing at a significant savings with additional discounts available for State and National Association Members.

Ask The Storage Experts most recently presented at Inside Self Storage’s World Expo “Management Mastery Workshop” Thursday, April 4 from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM.

Founded by Cynthia Ashby, experts also include Magen Smith, Matthew Van Horn, and Kevin Leebrick for a combined 50+ years of experience in all assets of self-storage operations.
