Why staff training really adds up

For many storage facility owners, staff training sits lower down on their list of priorities. To them, it seems like one big cost that doesn’t really add that much to their bottom line. But let’s look for a moment at some of the reasons why renters choose one self storage business over another in the first […]

SSAA Dinner & Storman Training Roadshow in Melbourne

Last week, I travelled down to Melbourne for our first Storman Training Roadshow for 2016. Over the course of the week, I met with some of our wonderful users from Storage Masters, who offer self storage in Geelong – an hour south west of Melbourne… as well as Echuca Storage, who offer self storage in Echuca and had […]

How Staff Training Leads to Higher Occupancy Levels

Can something as simple as staff training really increase occupancy levels? At first, this might seem a little too good to be true, but bear with me for a moment while we start things from the top. When people talk about training (be if for themselves or their staff) the first thing that usually comes […]

Photos from the Launceston 2015 SSAA Regional Meeting & StorMan’s Training Roadshow

Last week, I ventured down to Launceston for our Tasmanian leg of the StorMan Training Roadshow; perfectly timed to fit in with the Self Storage Association of Australasia’s (SSAA’s) Launceston Regional Meeting. My Brisbane to Melbourne flight was followed by a short (45 minute) Melbourne to Launceston flight; marking the furthest south I’d ever been […]

Photos from the Cairns 2015 SSAA Regional Meeting & Storman’s Training Roadshow

Tuesday afternoon saw a trip to the airport for my flight to Cairns, which was a little turbulent at times due to strong headwinds, but enjoyable & uneventful otherwise. Given Cairns is in “the tropics” of Far North Queensland (which is often abbreviated to “FNQ” – according to the signs I saw everywhere), it was […]

Training took place yesterday (Wednesday) at The Menzies Hotel in Sydney CBD. I was most impressed to hear that […]

Photos from Storman’s Training Roadshow in Adelaide

After a 4am wake-up call & an early Uber trip to the airport, I jumped on board my Virgin Australia flight to Adelaide. I’ve been to Adelaide twice before, but this was my first trip up to the picturesque Adelaide Hills region – so I was looking forward to it!   Today’s training would be […]

Last week I headed to Perth for our StorMan Training Roadshow, where I got to meet some of our lovely customers from Aquarama as well as Lock ‘n Store for training.     Following our two days of scheduled training, I travelled to Chez Pierre, one of Perth’s best French restaurants. A great range of dishes […]

Last week I headed to Melbourne for the Victorian leg of our StorMan Training Roadshow, where I got to meet some of our lovely customers from Spartan Self Storage as well as Caufield Self Storage for training.       Following the training, I headed over to the wonderful Heide Museum of Modern Art (photos […]

Storman Training with Coastline Mini Storage

Earlier this week, I was joined by a number of StorMan users from Coastline Mini Self Storage, who flew up to see us all the way from Wollongong – south of Sydney. As always, it’s lovely to put faces to names and to see how others use our self storage management software to help them […]
