SELF STORAGE TEAM MILESTONE: HAPPY 4-YEAR ANNIVERSARY TO FORREST ALLEN
Here at StaxUp Storage, we know our success is due to our wonderful team. The care they give our self storage renters is unparalleled and we want to highlight their milestones along the way. Below is an interview with Sun City, CA team member Forrest Allen, who is celebrating his 4-year anniversary with StaxUP Storage this week.
You can find Forrest managing the property at H&M Self Storage.
Peter: Is this one year with H&M Self Storage?
Forrest: As a manager, yes, but I was an assistant manager for three years before that.
Peter: Four years is a long time at any job these days. Congratulations!
Forrest: Haha, yeah, thanks.
Peter: How did you get started working in self storage?
Forrest: I kind of grew up around it. My parents were doing it. My grandparents were doing it, so I thought it would be a good idea, since I already knew a lot about it.
Peter: That’s an interesting, sort of almost, family business to grow up in.
Forrest: Oh, yeah, it was interesting. Still is, haha!
Peter: Do you think you’ve learned anything working in self storage that you wouldn’t have learned other places?
Forrest: Definitely people skills, learning the right way to talk with different people and learning how to handle different situations.
Peter: After four years in the business, I bet you have a lot of stories. Do you have any go-to stories when someone asks you what it’s like to work in self storage?
Forrest: Haha, I’ve got some interesting ones, but I’m not sure there are any I want to talk about.
Peter: No stories that are appropriate for the website?
Forrest: No, hahaha!
Peter: Hahaha, right on. I understand completely. So, you’re at H&M. Is there anything distinctive about that self storage facility? Anything that sets it apart?
Forrest: It looks a little bit homier than others, if that makes sense.
Peter: Like it’s not so corporate looking or sterile?
Forrest: Yeah, exactly.
Peter: What’s your clientele like? Is it mostly residential or do you have a good number of commercial clients too?
Forrest: I’d say it’s about half and half.
Peter: That’s a good mix! So, you’re not always at work. Do you have any hobbies outside of work that you like to do?
Forrest: I go hiking a lot. Up at Humboldt Park there’s Devil’s Pass and that’s my favorite one.
Peter: That sounds fun. Do you go by yourself?
Forrest: No, my girlfriend and I go a lot.
Peter: That is a good couple’s activity for sure, a fun way to stay in shape.
Forrest: Yeah, definitely.
Peter: Any other hobbies?
Forrest: I like to cook.
Peter: Any specific kind of cuisine?
Forrest: I kind of make my own, if that makes sense.
Peter: Ah, so you’re an original chef.
Forrest: Oh, yeah. That’s me.
Peter: Do you have any go-to recipes.
Forrest: You know what, cooking top ramen in the pan with soy sauce and green onions.
Forrest: Oh, yeah.
Peter: So you boil it first to soften it up and then you throw it in the pan with soy sauce and green onions and fry it up?
Forrest: Oh, yeah, with some eggs.
Peter: Oh, dang. I am going to try that when I get home. That is an awesome go-to recipe: cheap, easy, and delicious.
Forrest: It’s definitely cheap and really good.
Peter: Cool, cool. Are there any restaurants near where you work that you eat at regularly?
Forrest: Coco’s in Sun City. They’ve got a bit of everything: burgers, salads, steaks. I’ve been going there since I was a little kid.
Peter: So you grew up in that area?
Forrest: Yeah, in Menifee.
Peter: Do you think you’ll stay there for the long haul or do you ever feel like getting out and moving somewhere else in the world?
Forrest: I’m kind of seeing where the flow takes me.
Peter: That is a great way to go about it. That’s what I’m doing. At the end of these interviews, I like to ask if there is anyone on the team who has helped you out in the past. Is there anyone on the team who deserves a shout out?
Forrest: Other than my parents, Tommy helped me a lot, but he isn’t with the company anymore.
Peter: That’s alright, we’ll give old Tommy a shout out.
Forrest: Then Tommy definitely.
H&M SELF STORAGE GARAGE SALE EVENT SATURDAY, APRIL 21ST, 2018
It’s the right time of year to get rid of the clutter and find some hidden treasures. Of course, we are talking about getting in on some great deals at our H&M Self Storage Facility Garage Sale happening this Saturday, April 21st from 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM!
Rebecca Avila, H&M facility manager, explained how the event is intended to accommodate the customers, “This is going to be my first event, because I am a new manager. It’s something we do for the tenants. Sometimes they have a lot of stuff! It’s spring time, so spring cleaning, and you’re making money and getting rid of things you don’t need.”
It sounds like shoppers will have plenty of units to look through, “We did have a sign up sheet, and it was for non-tenants as well. We have a couple of those that signed up. I have 15, and of 15, 11 payed,” Rebecca said.
Apparently one of H&M’s tenants will not only be selling items from their unit, but also their house according to Rebecca, “I have a tenant who rented a 26 foot truck because she had so much furniture she wants to get rid of. She has tons of stuff from home and tons of stuff from her storage that she just wants to get rid of. She’s like ‘I’ve got beds and tables and this,’ and I’m like ‘Oh my goodness’ she’s just going on about what she has.”
When it comes to the size of units that will be opening their doors, there will be a pretty good mix, “We have a few that have the larger units and then some of the tenants are like ‘Oh I have so much stuff at home I need to get rid of’ chances are they are probably going to sell items from their storage unit and bring things from home that they no longer use. But it’s really a mixture. Some are large and some are small,” Rebecca said.
This event is open to the public, so call your friends and family! Everyone is invited to peruse the units and get in on the fun. Make sure you go early to get first dibs on the things you need, and snag a few things that you may not have realised you needed!
H&M GARAGE EVENT SALE APRIL 21ST, 2018 FOLLOW-UP
At H&M Self Storage in Sun City, California we had a garage sale event on Saturday, April 21st. We love being able to help our tenants and customers spring clean their units, and give the public a chance to get in on some fantastic deals while having a relaxed look at our facility.
H&M Facility Manager Rebecca Avila said that she had six tenants that opened their units to shoppers on Saturday. While she was expecting more of her customers to participate in the event, Rebecca said that a couple of them had enough items to fill four storage units.
Rebecca made sure that the tenants participating in the garage sale were well taken care of. Starting off in the morning she provided them with donuts, water, bananas, coffee, and tea. Then in the afternoon her husband, Hector Avila, cooked up some hot dogs, and Rebecca had condiments, chips and lemonade for the tenants.
When Rebecca realized they had more than enough food for the tenants that were participating, she decided to feed the shoppers as well.
“I don’t believe in wasting, so we shared,” Rebecca said. “Before we opened we had a couple of people waiting to come in. There was another community in the area with newer homes that was having a huge community garage sale so I think a lot of the customers were there.”
Despite competing with another garage sale event happening at the same time, Rebecca says that the tenants still did alright, “I think each of them made a couple hundred dollars.”
Of the units that had items for sale, one in particular held some potentially valuable treasures, including collectable Disney, Baseball, and general sports memorabilia.
“I guess his brother in law recently passed, he worked at Disneyland so he had stuff for years and years and years. Like the original Tigger Teddy that was in its original box. A lot of stuff,” Rebecca said.
It was the perfect time for shoppers to also get a good look at the layout of the facility since the garage sale was not confined to one area.
“It was kind of throughout the property, even though it was six units. We had two tenants right by the office, and then in the middle section it was one tenant who rented a 26 foot moving truck with all furniture. Down that aisle was tons of furniture. And then the very last aisle she had all kinds of clothes and bicycles and tools,” Rebecca said.
The success of the day was made possible by not only Rebecca, but also Self Storage Professional Marc Romo and Rebecca’s husband Hector, who helped by manning the barbecue.”
It’s amazing to see our facilities going above and beyond the call for their customers. Events like these help the self storage community grow closer. It also encourages those who may be curious about self storage to come meet the community and see the facility in a relaxed and fun environment. We can’t thank the H&M team and it’s tenants enough for helping us put on this great event, and if you weren’t able to make it to this one we hope that you’ll be excited as we are to participate in the next one!
H&M Self Storage to host Customer Appreciation Day June 22nd
Pablo Picasso once said “In drawing, nothing is better than the first attempt.” With that in mind, we are pumped to announce that Becky Avila, facility manager at H&M Self Storage on Encanto Drive will be hosting her first ever customer appreciation event on the 22nd. We spoke with Becky about the event and what she anticipated for her first foray into leading a customer appreciation event.
“I’m not nervous at all,” said Becky. “I’m sure it will go over really well. We’re beginning the event at noon and it will last until about 4 p.m.”
There should be plenty of incentive to swing by and say “Hello!” to Becky. The H&M storage team will be grilling up hotdogs for anyone that comes in to enjoy. There will also be snacks and beverages as well as a free raffle for a chance to win prizes. Whether you are a current renter at H&M or if you are considering becoming one, there isn’t a better time this month to drop by. Enjoy a free lunch, perhaps take a tour of the facility, and maybe even win a prize in the raffle.
“We plan on taking plenty of pictures,” said Becky. “I’m looking forward to it.”
We’re sure that this event will be a success, not to mention fun for anyone who wants to attend. While this may be Becky’s first attempt at hosting a customer appreciation day, it surely won’t be her last. Remember Picasso, nothing is better than that first attempt!
