Jerry Jones CPA
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a CPA that you deal directly with, that knows the Self Storage business, that works in all 50 states and is there for you when you need him?
In addition to being the best tax advisor I have had the pleasure of working with, Jerry is first and foremost a wonderful person. Building my first storage facility and being a rookie to the industry, I was nervous on what I could expect in my first year of development. With all of the ups and downs of this first year all I can say is I had absolutely no worries when it came to the the most important part of our business - the numbers. Jerry Jones took the time to answer every question or concern we had when going though this process. If you are in the storage business give yourself a leg up and apply Jerry’s experience and expertise of this expanding and ever changing industry. You will be thankful you did.

French firm aims to bring robots to U.S. self-storage facilities

by John Egan

Matthieu Besozzi faced a dilemma.

One of his two self-storage facilities in Toulouse, France, was too small to justify the cost of hiring a manager. So he and his colleagues decided to operate the 10,000-square-foot facility remotely, without any staff.

However, managing a facility remotely demands regular on-site visits to handle day-to-day tasks, such as checking on a property's cleanliness and security.

The solution? Besozzi and his colleagues developed their own self-storage robot.

Today, six Keylo robots are being used by self-storage facilities in France, the Netherlands and Switzerland, with another 14 robot deployments in Europe scheduled for the remainder of 2017.

And if all goes as planned, Keylo robots soon will be roaming self-storage facilities in the U.S.

Wyca Robotics is looking for the first US facility to use its Keylo robot for unmanned operations.

The robots are coming
