As the number of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) cases continues to grow daily, not just worldwide but in our own community, all of us at White Properties Storage Solutions continue to grapple with this new reality that seems to have no end in sight. We can’t emphasize enough that our hearts are with all who have been affected in the wake of this pandemic. Our team encourages all our customers to communicate any financial difficulties you may be encountering during these turbulent times as we continue to work with each of you on an individual basis.
Slowing the Spread
The No. 1 message from health authorities is to practice good hygiene. Rest assured, we are doing our part by regularly cleaning and sanitizing the surfaces that our customers and staff frequently touch. This includes our keypads, kiosk touch screens, countertops, door handles, and moving equipment to name a few. We also continue to limit our staff hours at both office locations to further promote self-isolation. An overview of our current operating schedule as well as ways we’re reducing person-to-person contact can be found by reading our COVID-19 statement here.
Self-Storage and Your Health
The key thing to remember is that people don’t gather in large groups at a self-storage facility. In fact, White Properties Storage Solutions averages less than 15 customers/day visiting their units at each of our eight locations. Furthermore, the virus only persists on metal and plastic surfaces for a maximum of 72 hours (Service, 2020). While self-storage is a low-risk operation for contracting the coronavirus, we still ask all our customers to proceed with caution. And please, if you’re sick, STAY HOME!
WP Cares Campaign
Many folks continue to need self-storage even during this time that we’re all trying to flatten the curve. Whether you’re a college student that needs to secure your belongings until the fall semester or a family that’s recently moved, we offer many specials to both our new and existing self-storage customers. Our latest campaign entitled “WP Cares” features select units for 50% off now through the month of May to help alleviate the financial burden that the COVID-19 pandemic has placed on our community.
