Manhattan Mini Storage Becomes First Storage Company to Offer Updater
NEW YORK, NY – (August 3, 2016) Manhattan Mini Storage, a leading storage solutions provider in New York City, today announced a partnership with Updater, the leading provider of relocation software to ease the moving process.
“Moving anywhere – but especially into, out of, or anywhere around Manhattan – is an incredibly stressful experience,” said Lenny Lazzarino, VP of Partnerships at Manhattan Mini Storage. “Our partnership with Updater enables us to do something we couldn’t do before – enhance the process for our customers beyond the moving and storing of items by also simplifying the hassle of updating all their personal information. This is an incredible value-add, as Updater complements our core services by allowing us to provide a number of essential new tools.
Through this partnership, customers who use Manhattan Mini Storage to facilitate their move in or out of Manhattan will receive access to the invite-only Updater platform, saving them hours by streamlining the various processes associated with moving, including but not limited to:
- Updating Accounts: Updater can automatically update a customer’s new address for any of over 15,000 businesses, including magazines, newspapers, alumni associations, charities, loyalty and frequent flyer accounts, and more.
- Connecting Home Services and Utilities: Updater helps customers transfer utilities, set up digital services and schedule in-home installations.
- Forwarding Mail: Updater files customers’ official U.S. Postal Service mail-forwarding forms online.
- Sending Digital Moving Announcements: Customers can create digital moving e-cards to notify friends and family of their new address.
- Claiming Move-in Offers: Updater provides special offers and exclusive deals on moving services and expenses, such as discounts on professional cleaning services, renters insurance, and more.
“It’s no surprise that Manhattan Mini Storage is the first independent storage company to acknowledge that their customers need help throughout the moving process and to do something about it,” added Jenna Weinerman, Marketing Director at Updater. “Their many innovative ideas are a result of pure dedication to meeting the needs of their customers – from their free Storage Taxi to their package acceptance program to providing free Zipcar credits and more. We’re thrilled to now be an added benefit included when New Yorkers store with Manhattan Mini Storage.”
