STATESVILLE, NC — The economic recovery can be a double-edged sword — especially if your self-storage facility fell into disrepair during the economic downturn, or faces competition from a new self-storage facility.  Self-storage facility refurbishing with components from BETCO, a single-source self-storage building manufacturer based in Statesville, NC, could be your key to staying competitive in today’s rapidly recovering marketplace.

“In the self-storage industry, image is everything. Owners of older facilities have to step up their game,” explained John Barnard, Inside Sales Manager, BETCO, Inc. “The appearance of your self-storage facility attracts potential customers, gives them confidence that their property will be secure, and gives them an overall impression about the quality of your facility. If your competitor’s buildings look better than yours, it’s time for a makeover. And self-storage refurbishing with BETCO is a smart and affordable way to keep your facility attractive, up-to-date and competitive.”
