-Lane MooreOwner, Moore Storage

"My brother and I opened Moore Storage with the idea that it would be a secondary business that wouldn’t consume a lot of our time. Our primary business is as a Petroleum Distributor. Well…. After about 5 years of attempting to operate Moore Storage we came to the conclusion that it was obviously going to need WAY more of our time than we originally had thought. We contacted USG and fortunately for us, our operation fit into their scope of properties that they would be willing to manage. USG came in and took over operations. We handed them quite a mess as we didn’t even have contracts on all our tenants! The decision to use USG was one of the best business decisions we have ever made. They turned our operation around and have made it a success above and beyond our dreams. I would not even consider opening another location without using USG as our management company and I would highly recommend them to anyone who is considering outsourcing management of their self-storage facility."

"We cannot say enough great things about Universal Storage Group and its team. When selecting your vendors and management partners it comes down to the people, processes, and results. The team at USG sets the standard in all of these categories and continues to show why they’re such a trusted name in the industry. Our team works closely with them as a vendor partner so we get to see firsthand how much care and effort they put into delivering their customers success. If you’re looking for a great partner, look no further than USG."

-Barden BrownManaging Director - Multifamily Investment Sales and Lending

"USG took over management of our 11-property portfolio in August of 2020 and the results were immediate. Their revenue management program has been instant and effective. Collections went up by 15% within the first six months while expenses were in-line with the budget they presented up front. The whole team has been a pleasure as well."

-Bo BrownPresident

"I have had the pleasure to have used Universal Storage group to manage my properties for over 20 years and I can say with complete confidence that USG are experts in all facets of the self storage industry. The company is a professionally run organization from their onsite managers all the way up to the corporate officers. Everyone is pleasant, knowledgeable, focused and results oriented. What makes their company great are the people who work there. USG have the talented people who understand how to drive revenue, control costs while continuing to improve the asset. USG is a well-run, well capitalized management company that has tremendous resources available to make your facility successful. I consider USG as a ‘best in class’ self-storage management company and the people who work there are true professionals."
