What is StorerCheck and why do I need to know about it?
StorerCheck is the easiest tool to help your self storage facility detect bad storers. Storman integrated StorerCheck into our desktop software – supported by the SSAA – as it provides valuable information to safeguard the businesses of our clients.
StorerCheck is a service that records bad payment history and other misdemeanours from customers that store with self storage companies – a kind of “grey list” if you like – that outlines when, how and who has a bad payment record within self storage.
StorerCheck balances storers’ privacy with the need for secure and profitable storage facilities.
StorerCheck has been established for the sole purpose of maintaining a database for the identification and collection of information about problem storers. Storers who have defaulted on their storage agreements, storers who miss payments, storers who abandon goods, storers who threaten staff and other problem storers are able to be listed with StorerCheck.
How do I start to use this helpful service?
Firstly, you will need a StorerCheck account. At the time of writing, these accounts are free as they are included in your annual SSAA membership. Therefore, all you really need to do is to go to storercheck.com and click “Membership” then follow the links.
Once you have your membership details you will need to enter these into Storman. You will need to ensure that you are using the latest version of Storman for this to work. The membership details can be setup via Maintenance -> Settings -> System Setup.
Once the membership details have been entered, StorerCheck can be used from within Storman.
How do I use StorerCheck within Storman?
The easiest way to use StorerCheck is to enter a prospective customers’ name in the usual spots and click the “StorerCheck” button that appears on the “Customer Info. Storman will then pre-fill a form that is checked against StorerCheck’s online database to see if that particular customer has any bad records lodged against them.
It’s that easy!
