Why Join?

1. We Have Your Back

Everyday your rights as a property owner and a self storage business are under attack by politicians with their own agendas at every level of government. The CSSA advocates for self storage rights morning, noon, and night and since we are a part of the National Self Storage organization we have advocates in Washington fighting for your rights, daily.

2. What You Need to Know

With the daunting amount of news and information coming at you constantly it’s impossible for any one person to keep up. Our team curates and alerts you to the "must have” information to ensure you’re in the know. Plus, we feed you the best in trends, economic forecasts and expert outlooks to make it easy and quick for you to be up to date in what’s happening in the industry. Visit the News Section of our website. Already a Member? Adjust your message alerts by visiting your member profile. If you need help with this visit the FAQ Section of our website for more information.

3. Who You Need to Know

Do you ever wish you could use a lifeline and "phone a friend?” Our members can do just that because they know each other. We combat "owner isolation” through live events held in various locations across the state where members meet each other. Countless deals, ideas, connections, direction, experiences and laughs have been shared as we get to talk shop. Technology has not replaced the need for good old one-on-one, in person conversations which are the backbone of real relationships. Check out our online resources or contact us in office today at 909.912.1962.

4. Training You Want

As a storage insider, you know there are many skill sets required to run an efficient and profitable facility or chain of stores. Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or a newcomer we offer a variety of informative classes, seminars, and workshops to improve expertise. Popular subjects include legal, sales, marketing, and customer service. Visit our online event calendar today for information on upcoming events.

5. Lower Your Legal Costs

Stay current on the California Law with our compliant legal forms such as unit rental agreements, RV & Boat rental agreements and Employee Handbook. Our legal team reviews and updates all of the contracts offered on a regular basis. When you use CSSA forms you never have to worry about being in legal compliance. Plus, members are able to join the Legal Review Network where they can turn for advice at a super low rate.

6. You’ll Be Nationwide

Did you know that by becoming a part of the CSSA you are also supporting the Self Storage Industry nationally? When you become a member of the CSSA, you automatically receive an affiliate membership to the National Self Storage Association giving you access to discounts on SSA events, including their Las Vegas Expos!

7. You Get Insider Pricing

Lock up the best possible pricing on the things you need from our long list of products available online and by tapping into our extensive database of vendors who offer exactly what you want. For example, we offer low, low rates on Employee Manuals and CA specific Rental Contracts written specifically for your use. You’ll also receive discounted rates on all CSSA events, trainings and publications.

8. We’re All About You

The sole purpose of the CSSA, a non-profit organization, is to support you in your self storage business. If you take advantage of any of our many offering you can easily save our low annual membership fee. Plus, your membership includes ALL of your employees at NO additional cost. Of course, you can go it alone, although that often proves to be a difficult and ultimately a more expensive route.
