Iâ€™ve done business with Sterling principals since 1984, and partnered with them on several projects since 1997. Three words say it all: Trustworthy, Smart, Results.
Since the inception of Storage King, Sterling Management has been an invaluable asset. Their expertise in the storage industry has been key to the success we have experienced and their diverse and creative way of thinking has helped us through the economic decline.
I hired Sterling to open our 80T sq. ft. project in Seattle in 1996. They achieved stabilized occupancy within a year, and have since maintained in excess of 90% occupancy even in the most of difficult economic times. We are now expanding and trust Sterling to achieve the same results. We are also developing a new site and will look to Sterling's leadership to achieve RESULTS. I trust Sterling.
Sterling managed six self-storage projects my partners and I acquiried through bankruptcy in the late 1980's. Sterling took 40% non-performing projects and turned them into 95%+ profit centers within one year. Sterling ran the projects for 6 years until we sold them. Sterling not only made us money in all of these projects, they achieved results far beyond our wildest expectations.
I partnered with Sterling to acquire a underperforming project in Port St. Lucie. Sterling had the skill to bring the project into peak performance quickly. We sold the project in 2002 and earned a handsome ROI together.
Since 1996, Sterling has delivered 90+ percent occupancy rates at both our mini-storage facilities, despite severe economic challenges of the 2010+ era. They also did the feasibility study, start-up, and fill-up within one year of our latest project.
In 1994, my company partnered with Sterling to develop a full-service record storage center, Sterling Records Management, Inc. My partners and I feel that Sterling principals are outstanding business people, and our relationship has proven to be extremely profitable, even beyond our greatest expectations.
Our self storage consulting services are available a la carte by the hour or by the project. Following you'll find some of our most popular self storage management & consulting services:
Are You Looking for a Self Storage Consultant?
Before you pick up the phone and call any self storage consultant, there are several things you should know.
First you must know why you are looking for a self storage consultant. Is it because you are tired of breaking even, or maybe even losing money, month after month or because you are looking to sell your facility? Could it be because you're thinking about buying or investing in a facility or opening a new facility, and need a self-storage feasibility study? It's a good idea to know why you are looking for a self storage consultant. Once you know why you are looking for a self storage consulting, you'll need to know who will be the best consultant for the job.
There are many self storage consultants. But just like in any other business, there are some that are better than others. So how to you decide which one is best for you? Well, there's nothing better than a good recommendation.

Working with a consultant that has previously helped other businesses through the very process you are going through is sometimes the best and only indicator, but it shouldn't stop there. You should also want to work with a consultant who has years and years of experience conducting surveys, managing facilities, performing feasibility studies and so on. To top it off you should find a consultant that is well versed in the self storage field. Many times your consultant will become your facility manager, marketer or later down the line, salesman. Finding a consultant that you can build a long relationship with is truly important. We would like to put someone you could have a great relationship with as the 1st determining factor. But let's be honest, becoming best friends isn't always the best consulting practice.
So, once you've decided that you need a self storage consultant, make sure that consultant is reputable, has experience and well versed within the self storage industry.
