“The New York area is a very competitive market, and we know Storage.com can help us increase our online presence,” said Guido Tebano, Sales and Marketing Manager of Treasure Island Storage. “Their web presence and partner sites provide many additional opportunities to increase traffic at all of our locations, and their easy-to-use, pay-per-rental product was a great fit.”

Right now, there are over 59 New York area storage facilities on Storage.com that can help serve the needs of storage customers in the New York area.

“This is where our shop-and-compare directory really benefits consumers all over the United States,” Hipsher added. “Consumers can sort by the size of unit they need, what they are willing to pay, and the amenities they want in seconds to find the exact unit that is right for them. This benefits storage owners as well by providing them with an excellent opportunity to reach the thousands of consumers who come to our site each month because they prefer a shop-and-compare experience that makes the search for storage units easier.”
