    First-time events don’t always come off as planned, but when they do it means a lot of people contributed to the success. Such was certainly the case with the Tri-State Self Storage Conference held October 16-17 at The Golden Nugget in Laughlin, Nevada. The California, Arizona and Nevada state associations pooled their resources and energy to create the first-ever gathering and, by all measures, it was a huge hit! So much so that the California Self Storage Association (CSSA) hopes even bigger ones can be organized in the future.

    “It was great to see so many people flock to Laughlin for the gathering,” said Erin King, Executive Director of the CSSA. “We even had people who said it was their first time attending a conference & trade show. Most importantly, our post-event survey indicated that attendees truly enjoyed the speakers and having a chance to meet others in the industry.”

    The California Self Storage Association (CSSA), Arizona Self Storage Association (AZSA) and Nevada Self Storage Association (NVSSA) combined forces to host the “See You at the River” event, that featured speakers like Jeff Greenberger, Esq. (SelfStorageLegal.com) and Carol Krendl (owner of SkilCheck Services), round table sessions and breakout gatherings for each state association. 125 people from the three states attended the event

    A post-event survey conducted by the CSSA indicated that Greenberger and Krendl were overwhelmingly appreciated (“A” grades for both), as were the state association breakout sessions (also an “A” grade). The networking receptions on Thursday and Friday also received thumbs-up from those surveyed and every single one of the attendees who answered the survey said they would like a similar gathering next year.

    A sample of answers to the survey included: “I think we outgrew the space that the Golden Nugget has - but that is only because of the attendees and how you all did a great job promoting to get people to attend…well done.” “Content good, location reasonably priced, met lots of new people.” “Was basically a 1-day conference. Might consider spreading the info out over 1 1/2 days in the future.” “Everything was great and everyone was so helpful. Thank you so much!!”

    “The CSSA would like to thank the AZSA and NVSSA for joining forces in such an impressive and outgoing way,” concluded King. “When you get three state associations so willing to work together, great results can happen, as evidenced by the Laughlin gathering. We certainly hope for more Tri-State conferences as it is good for everyone in the self storage industry in California, Arizona and Nevada.”

    To mix metaphors, if at first you don’t succeed, then get back on that horse and ride! At this time a year ago CSSA officials were trying to figure out why Bill AB 983 had not advanced through the 2013 session of the California Legislature following a promising start. After a few changes were made to make the bill more palatable to legislative members in 2014 the good news is that it made it through the legislature and was recently signed into law by Governor Brown on September 29.

    The bill, intended to help self storage operators dealing tenants storing vehicles, boats or trailers as well as the value of stored property, finally gathered steam as the summer progressed and was voted to become a law prior to the summer session of the California State Legislature closing on August 31.

    “I am pleased with the changes that we were able to get passed on AB 983 because they serve to help every owner/operator in California,” said Erin King, Executive Director of the CSSA. “We hope to address the issue of e-mailing lien notices in the future with the California legislature. I know the CSSA and SSA will continue to work on getting it through in the coming years. Whether we go back next session or wait a year or so remains to be decided.”

    In essence, here are the major points of the bill that self storage owner/operators and managers need to know:

    The new law will go into effect on January 1, 2015 and will provide self storage operators with an additional remedy when delinquent tenants store vehicles, boats or trailers. Instead of going through the complicated and often very slow Department of Motor Vehicle procedures for selling licensed vehicles and boats, operators will have the option of having vehicles and boats towed from the facility when rent is not been paid for 60 days or more.  The towing will often prove to be a better option than the DMV lien process for vehicles and boats. The operator loses its lien on the vehicle or boat once it is towed; however, the operator can still bring an action in small claims court for unpaid rent and other charges. 

    The law requires the operator to send the occupant notice at least 10 days before the vehicle or boat is removed from the facility. The notice must be sent to the occupant’s last known address by first class mail with a certificate of mailing. The notice must include the name, address and telephone number of the towing company and the street address of the location where the vehicle or boat will be stored. The storage operator will have no further liability for the vehicle or boat once it is towed from the facility.

    The bill also makes a technical change to the Declaration in Opposition to Lien Sale form. The current form requires the occupant to provide an “address” where he or she may be served. The revised form states that the occupant must provide a “Physical Address.” This change was made because some delinquent tenants would provide a post office box and not a physical address where the owner could serve a suit to foreclose when a Declaration was returned.

    The bill also makes it clear that self storage operators may include a provision in the rental agreement that limits the value of the property that customers store. Such provisions have proven very effective at limiting damages when tenants bring suits for loss of or damage to stored property.

    Storage operators that do not now have a limit on the value of property a tenant may store should consider including one in their rental agreement. It is recommend that the basic limit be set at an amount that reflects the value of property that the typical tenant stores.  It is also a good idea to allow this amount to be increased with the written permission of the facility operator.  The California Model Rental Agreement offered by the CSSA includes a value limitation that states:

    Occupant agrees not to store property with a total value in excess of $5,000 without the written permission of the Owner.  If such written permission is not obtained, the value of Occupant's property shall be deemed not to exceed $5,000.

    Most operators set their basic value of property at between $2,500 and $10,000, depending on the area where their facility is located. The lower value is more commonly found in the rural areas of the state and the higher amount in cities like Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco.

    “Many thanks to the national SSA, Carlos Kaslow and everyone else who helped get AB 983 passed,” concluded King. “We know we still have work to do and we will remain committed to bringing about positive changes for the self storage industry in California.”

    The buzz of October is centered on the southwest as the self storage associations from Arizona, California, and Nevada join forces to host the Tri-State Self Storage Conference. “Meet Us at the River,” accurately named according to its location on the Colorado River in Laughlin, NV, is scheduled to take place October 16 and 17. Never before has a group of SSAs come together to collaborate with the specific purpose of unifying area operators in an educational environment.

    Through the tools of discussion and networking, industry leaders will cover topics like operations, management, and finances at length – all while promoting positive conversations and problem solving for owners all around the tri-state area.

    StorageAhead’s own James Appleton is eager to lead one of these roundtable discussions. Appleton, long-time board member of AZSA and business developer with StorageAhead, plans to challenge owners with his topic, “How to Get the Biggest Bang for Your Buck: Measuring Cost per Acquisition and Return on Investment.” Appleton is prepared to analyze the sales funnel and provide several practical takeaways for attendees looking to generate greater profits. It’s a networking opportunity that AZSA Executive Director Anne Mari DeCoster predicts will be a huge hit.

    “Finding out what’s available and who is providing it is an important service the Arizona Self-Storage Association provides to our members. That’s why I attend as many industry events as possible,” says DeCoster. “At the SSA Fall Conference in Las Vegas, I learned a lot from StorageAhead’s roundtable discussion. Alex Bernath was helpful and informative – part of a great team.” Those who didn’t make it to the event in Vegas will enjoy several moments at the Tri-State Conference to soak up ideas and collaborate with others in the industry.

    Appleton is determined to live up to the hype and, above all, provide the resources owners and operators are interested in. Spaces are still available for the Tri-State Self Storage Conference.

    Westwood, KS – Nova Storage has joined with web marketing firm StorageAhead to launch a new and innovative website. The locally owned, Los Angeles-based storage vendor hopes to increase visibility across the web and better serve its customers in a highly competitive and concentrated market.

    Director of Operations Kelly Hanna wanted a high degree of functionality without sacrificing simplicity and ease of use. "StorageAhead offers a forward-thinking look and feel,” he said. "They are on the cutting edge of technology, and their many years of expertise in the field allows us to be better at our job, which is to draw in more customers and to rent spaces.”

    Nova Storage is one of many recent additions to StorageAhead’s WebWorks platform. The Westwood, KS-based web marketing company focuses its efforts on the self storage industry, building dynamic and individualized websites. What drew Nova Storage, said Hanna, was the adaptive design, management software integration, geolocation, and the potential for improved lead generation.

    "We’re competing against the big boys,” Hanna said. "By using StorageAhead, we can compete with the major brands by exploiting the same technology they use.” The responsiveness of the new website will allow Nova Storage to be more adaptable to the market and to adjust prices, specials, and features at the same pace that larger storage providers enjoy.

    An improved online presence is not the only plan in store for Nova Properties. "We want to buy more facilities in the area,” said Hanna. He stressed the convenience of having locations that are close together, providing the opportunity to move a customer from one location to another based upon availability. "The south L.A. facilities are all within a 15-minute drive of each other,” he said. In partnering with StorageAhead, he hopes Nova Storage will continue to grow and achieve even greater market penetration in an area dense with self storage facilities.

    Leading provider of technology solutions for self storage facilities expands management team in anticipation of hyper growth

    Westwood, KS – StorageAhead, a wholly owned subsidiary of Red Nova Labs and leading provider of technology solutions for the self storage industry, announced on September 10, 2014 that Dirk Wakeham will join the company as Chief Executive Officer and as a member of its Board of Directors.

    The estimable Mark Twain once said, “It is better to deserve honors and not have them, than to have them and not deserve them.” Of course, Mr. Twain left out the notion about how sweet it is to get an honor that you do, indeed, deserve. Such is the case for the California Self Storage Association, which won the Best State Association category in the 2014 Inside Self-Storage readers poll. It represents the third time in the last four years that the CSSA has won the award.

    The ISS Best of Business Awards, announced August 1, includes 35 winners who will be highlighted in the November print edition of ISS magazine. All the winners will be honored with a commemorative trophy at the Inside Self-Storage World Expo in Las Vegas, April 7-9, 2015.

    The California Self Storage Association also won the award in 2011 and 2012 (with the Texas Self Storage Association claiming the award in 2013). That sort of recognition sits well with CSSA executive director Erin King.

    “While we work hard to help our members and the self storage industry, we don’t do so with the idea that we will be receiving awards,” King said. “Our goal is to be the best state association that we can be and get better with each passing year. That being said, we are so appreciative to having again been voted this award by ISS readers. Many thanks to them for this wonderful recognition.”

    The CSSA is among the most active and involved state associations in the country. It’s efforts to gain favorable self storage legislation, to educate its members on the latest trends in the industry and to hold special gatherings from one end of California to the other contribute to its reputation as one of the best state associations in the USA.

    “We like to think we are doing a good job and awards like this from the ISS help reinforce our energy and efforts to top whatever we’ve done before,” added King. “I can assure you that we’ll keep operating at a high level of energy and commitment, whether we win awards or not.”

    Mark Twain would be proud.

    Cautiously optimistic. That might be the best way to describe CSSA officials as they try to maneuver Bill AB 983 through the 2014 session of the California Legislature.

    Last summer, when the California Senate Judiciary Committee decided not to let bill AB 983 move forward, it caught CSSA officials and members by surprise. The bill, intended to help self storage operators dealing with lien laws, made a positive move recently when it passed the same Judiciary Committee by a 7-0 vote and is now on the Senate floor. The California Legislature reconvenes on August 4 and the session closes on August 31.

    Nonetheless, it appears that the Assembly Judiciary has some concerns with the e-mail amendment and CSSA lobbyist Randy Pollack hopes to assuage those concerns come August 4.

    “AB 983 is on the Senate floor,” said Pollack. “Once it passes, it needs to go back to the Assembly for a concurrence vote. However, the Assembly Judiciary Committee informed Assembly Member Melendez' staff that they have concerns with the e-mail provision and would like to discuss the bill with us. We will be meeting with the Chair of the Judiciary Committee   when the legislature reconvenes on August 4th.”

    “The Assembly Judiciary Committee's ‘concern’ could prove to be a  problem,” said Carlos Kaslow, General Council for the national Self Storage Association (SSA). “We deleted the right to send lien notices when the bill was in the Assembly Judiciary Committee last year and they may wonder why it's back. The revised right to send notice by e-mail is very occupant friendly and much more protective than the language deleted from the version introduced in the Assembly.” 

    Kaslow said that to use e-mail to send lien notices the operator must do the following:

    1.     The rental agreement must contain a notice in bold type notifying the tenant that lien notices may be sent by e-mail

    2.     The occupant's provide consent before the owner may send notices by this method.   

    3.     When sending the Notice of Lien Sale the owner must get a receipt that confirms that it was delivered to the tenant's e-mail address.  [There are private companies that can provide the required receipt.  One of the largest is RPost which is based in Los Angeles.] 

    4.     The owner must provide the occupant with the email address from which notices will be sent.

    “We hope that when the protections are explained the Assembly Judiciary Committees their concerns will be satisfied,” added Kaslow. “However, an explanation may not make any difference if the Committee  thinks that the storage industry and the Senate has ignored its views on this issue. Making our case to the Committee is what the lobbyist gets paid for and we hope that Randy is successful in his discussions.

    Three is considered the most magical of all numbers, as evidenced by its use in religion (Holy Trinity), fairy tales (Three Little Pigs, Goldilocks and the Three Bears) and quotes (Third Time’s the Charm). In the case of self storage, one might say that three heads are better than one as the Arizona Self Storage Association (AZSA), California Self Storage Association (CSSA), and Nevada Self Storage Association (NVSSA) will be combining forces to host the "Meet Us at the River” initial Tri-State Self Storage Conference, October 16-17, at The Golden Nugget in Laughlin, Nevada.

    The event will feature top national speakers like Jeff Greenberger, Esq. (SelfStorageLegal.com) and Carol Krendl (Owner, SkilCheck Services); round table sessions (led by groups like Chateau, U-Haul, OpenTech Alliance, StorageAhead, MiniCo, Mini-Storage Messenger, and more); breakout sessions for each state association and, of course, networking possibilities galore. Bob Hayworth (CEO, Baja Construction) will do a breakoutsession on solar and boat/RVstorage. The conference begins on October 16 from 5 – 7:30 with check-in and networking as well as an opportunity for attendees to meet their respective board members.

    Laughlin sits on the Colorado River where the three states come together. This is the first time that the AZSA, CSSA, and NVSSA have come together and the three associations are pleased to be able to offer quality content as well as great networking possibilities. And to add to the excitement, a raffle will be held for two great seats for the Toby Keith concert at The Golden Nugget on October 18, which will likely be a sellout.

    The convergence of the three states is exciting news for the director of each state association.

    "We are so thrilled to be part of this event with the AZSA and NVSSA,” said Erin King, the CSSA’s Executive Director. "To be able to bring the three states together for meaningful educational sessions as well as an opportunity to network on a grander scale is really terrific. Owners and managers in the surrounding areas should not miss it! Not only members are welcome as we also hope to meet many new people.And, of course, we fully expect to have lots of fun!”

    "The Nevada Self Storage Association is committed to growing membership and supporting the needs of the self storage industry in Nevada,” added Michelle Watson, president of the NVSSA. "We hold education events in Las Vegas or north in Reno but this will be the first educational event located in the southern most part of our state. A different type of learning experience can happen when there is true collaboration, which is one of the reasons we agreed to get involved when Erin King of the CSSA approached us with this idea.”

    "I believe that the Tri-State Conference will ultimately be seen as a great example of true collaboration! Working closely with our neighbors in California and Arizona we are able to bring the educational venue to the river in Laughlin, Nevada. Planning the event so that the information presented is relevant and timely to the ownership base in this region has happened almost seamlessly. We are very excited to be involved and look forward to working with our neighbors now and for years to come.”

    "Great self storage educational and networking opportunities are hard to come by and often far away, especially for businesses located outside of the largest cities,” said AZSA Executive Director Anne Mari DeCoster. "That's why the state self storage associations of Arizona, California & Nevada are enthusiastic about our first venture together: ‘Meet Us at the River' is a full day conference designed specifically to meet the needs of self storage, RV and boat storage businesses along the Upper Colorado River and nearby areas in Arizona, California, and Nevada. We will focus on the operational, management, legal, investment and financial challenges you face in providing self-storage and boat/vehicle/RV storage in your area.”

    The good news continues with the low registration fee of only $99.00 and rates at The Golden Nugget start at $34.99 per night. *Don't forget to mention the code "GCSSA14” when booking your room*
