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?
I own 3 storage properties (2 in one state and the other in another state over 100 miles away)and work a full-time job about 100 miles in another direction; with all my travelling I sometimes feel like I get behind the 8-ball. That is where I was on my taxes when I contacted Jerry to prepare them. It is not a good practice to be at the last minute and needing to have your taxes prepared, but Jerry met the deadline with exceptional professionalism. I am located approximately 2,500 miles across the country from Jerry but that has been no hindrance in receiving timely exceptional customer service from him. In discussions with Jerry, he has had made suggestions that has helped me improve my operations. His knowledge of the self-storage industry incorporated into your accounting and tax-planning of your operations will prove to be invaluable. I believe he will provide you with the highest level of accounting service and tax planning and preparation for being an owner in the self-storage industry.

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.

Does your facility provide proper access to those with disabilities?

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.
