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?
Jerry has been our accountant since we started in the self storage business, some 20 years ago. I look to him as more than an accountant, but as a valuable business asset. He is continually suggesting new ways to reduce costs and improve profits. Also, he has developed some unconventional reports that are very helpful in evaluating our business on a day to day basis. I would recommend him to any self storage operator.

How the ADA Applies to Self-Service Storage Facilities

– by Jon Rose, Certified Access Specialist

More than 50 million Americans – 18% of our population – have disabilities, and each is a potential customer. People with disabilities are living more independently and participating more actively within their communities. They and their families want to patronize businesses that welcome customers with disabilities. In addition, approximately 71.5 million baby boomers will be over age 65 by the year 2030 and will be demanding products, services, and environments that meet their age-related physical needs. Studies show that once people with disabilities find a business where they can shop or get services in an accessible manner, they become repeat customers.

People with disabilities have too often been excluded from everyday activities: shopping at a corner store, going to a neighborhood restaurant or movie with family and friends. The ADA is a Federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities and opens doors for full participation in all aspects of everyday life.

The ADA applies to both the built environment and to policies and procedures that affect how a business provides goods and services to its customers.

Time to Update Your Rental Agreement Concerning Accessibility 

It is always better to think ahead than to wait for trouble to come knocking on your door. The CSSA is acutely aware that its members need to be informed and ready for any and all changes taking place in the industry. The latest involved accessibility inspections and your rental agreements. 

Does your facility provide proper access to those with disabilities? Has your facility been inspected by a Certified Access Specialist (CASp) and been determined to meet all applicable construction-related accessibility standards set up in Civil Code 55.53? Regardless of your answer to those questions, starting on July 1 you will want to have it written into your rental agreements if you want to avoid future ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) legal entanglements.
