New Businesses in 2019: GoStoreIt
Why was 2019 the right time to open your business?
This location was Asset Storage from 2009 to 2018. GoStoreit bought the business in June 2018.
What made Leland the ideal location for you?
Leland is such a growing area. Recognizing that, GoStoreit purchased the business then built another building next to our existing one, adding 328 units.
What services/products do you offer?
We offer climate-control and non-climate-control units ranging in size from 5×5 up to 10×30. We also have 87 outside parking spaces. We sell packing merchandise like boxes, tape, locks, packing paper/ bubble wrap and other items relating to protecting our clients’ possessions.
What separates you from the competition?
We offer excellent customer service. We take pride in our clean units and grounds. We have 24/7 camera surveillance with well-lit hallways and flood lights for the parking area. We have water faucets along our front parking for customers to wash down their boats. We also have large 12×30 parking spaces for trucks and RVs.
What has been your leading success so far?
We opened our new building in late August and our 10×30 outside units having been renting well, with some customers putting their custom cars in them. We also have special discounts for The Comet Apartments and Leland Station, to name a few, whose tenants choose to rent with us.
What has been the biggest challenge you’ve had to overcome?
With the growing population before the new building was opened, we had to send some of our potential customers to other storage facilities because we were at full capacity. With our brand-new building, we have the size you are looking for at competitive prices. Come on in to take a look at our units. You will like what you see!
What can we anticipate from you in the future?
We now are offering a 15% website discount when you reserve any unit online. In the future we will continue to have specials such as first month free. We always have a 10% discount for anyone who was in the military or is a senior.
Fun Fact about you, your staff, your family or anything interested to include?
All of the staff members are Leland residents who came from the Northeast to sunny and warm North Carolina. Some of us are golfers, pickleball players and boaters. Some of us love the climate and beaches and the social scene. All of us love the opportunity to live and work in this beautiful community and meet the people who become more than our clients — many have become our friends and neighbors!
