5 Twitter Accounts To Follow If You Want To Be A Self Storage Expert


Self storage is certainly an international phenomenon. There are many reasons someone would make use of a self storage unit, from moving home, renovations, marriage, death, divorce, birth, extra business stock, downsizing, etc. It is no wonder the service has grown so rapidly around the world. As South Africans we have grabbed hold of the concept, with many self storage facilities opening their doors to cater for the ever growing awareness of the product. The convenience of having an extension to ones home so close by is one driving factor, the other perhaps at this stage, is the current under supply of quality providers that can rival international offerings. If you are looking into self storage and want to know what is out there, one great way is it to do some online detective work. Here are five Twitter accounts for self storage you should be following if you want to be a self storage expert.
