In this episode, Automate to Elevate: Scaling Your Self Storage Business with Technology, Gavin sat down with Marketing Director Lewis Pennicott to discuss how automation is unlocking growth, streamlining operations, enhancing customer experiences, and optimising the overall efficiency of both indoor and outdoor storage sites.
Almost five years ago, Gavin launched his own self storage facility but couldn’t find the right software to easily run the business. This led to him developing Stora - an all-in-one website, online booking platform, and invoicing and billing system, which is now used by many self storage business across the country.
Other talking points include:
- Indoor vs outdoor (container) storage
- Budgeting and minimising upfront costs

- Gauging demand for storage in the area
- Maximising revenue with occupancy strategies
