Protecting the Self-Storage Owner-Operator

By: Auto Rental Solutions
ROCK HILL, S.C. - Feb. 19, 2015 - PRLog -- In today’s ever-changing news cycle, self-storage operators cannot be too careful. They run a risk with every signed lease that a renter will default or worse. Plus, for the independent self-storage operator who does not self insure, providing a moving truck could be cost prohibitive. Not anymore.

Renter’s Identification Check (RIC), now available to the self-storage industry, assists in reducing lease default.  Renter’s Collision Protection (RCP) is available for the self-storage operator who does not self-insure a rental truck. Without insurance every time the moving van or truck is rented, there is the risk of collision, and then begins the “who-is-paying-for-damages” dance.

Both products have a long history of successful use by independent operators in the rental car industry.

A web-based program, RIC uses the same information needed to complete a unit lease: name, address, phone, driver’s license and social security number. RIC searches the internet for public records that match the supplied information.

RIC sends back a good or bad “report card.” A good report means this renter is who she says she is. If there is any doubt, RIC will supply 3 questions an operator can ask to further validate that the person interested in renting a unit is who she says she is.

Renter’s Collision Protection makes it possible for self-storage operators to include a moving van along with the boxes, tape, furniture dollies and other moving product offerings. RCP provides collision protection for a renter whose own auto insurance might not cover a truck or van.

RCP is real collision insurance. It protects vans and trucks up to 10,000 GVW. It is the only collision protection product that can be offered at the counter, and is held in the customer’s name. It is sold by the day. In case of an accident, RCP will cover damages up to $20,000 with a $250.00 deductible.

Both products cost less than one may think. Contact Auto Rental Solutions. Learn how Renter’s Identification Check and Renter’s Collision Protection can benefit self-storage businesses by reducing risk, and adding to the bottom line.
