What Are Self Storage Sitemaps?

Sitemaps are mandatory features of any serious self storage software. Other than being a visual representation of storage units, they help you better manage your facility.

Facility managers usually use them for:

  • Having a Quick View of the Key Storage Unit Metrics(eg. what specific units are available)

  • Checking Out Individual Storage Unit Status(eg. which units require repair)

  • Checking Up Tenant Status of the Occupied Unit (eg. did the tenant pay the invoice)

  • Scheduling Move-Ins or Move-Outs

Self storage automation saves you time and helps you manage your facility as efficiently as possible. This article will show you how to leverage sitemaps to improve and automate your self storage facility.

How To Best Use Self Storage Sitemaps?

Sitemaps visualise the layout of your sites, and present key metrics (such as unit occupancy levels or unit labels). They also make it easy to schedule move-ins, move-outs, maintenance and repairs. So how do you make one for your facility?

Creating a Self-Storage Sitemap

Creating a sitemap with Storeganise is super easy. Go to the dashboard, click on the site you’re interested in and click on the “sitemap” button. Drag and arrange units according to the layout of your self-storage facility.

Visualise the Occupancy Levels of Your Site

See which units are vacant, occupied, reserved and blocked. This will allow you to easily see which units are available once a customer wants to book a unit. To view more information on a unit, such as unit type and customer move-in dates, click on the unit and a pop-up will appear.

Filter Your Units

Filter your unit according to customers, in order to see where a specific customer has their items. You can also filter by unit types, which you can set up and customise yourself in the main settings.
