We are happy to announce that Ashley Dawn of A+ Storage of Tennessee, LLC, has been chosen by the Board of Directors of the Tennessee Self Storage Association as it’s Manager of the Year for 2015.

Ashley Dawn has managed the Mt. Juliet location since November 2014. Prior to that, she managed the Hermitage location until the property was sold in 2014. The Mt. Juliet property has performed so well under her stewardship that we are in the process of adding 40,000 more square feet of rentable space that will open in the spring of 2016.

Some of her marketing efforts include donated units for the Mt. Juliet Animal Shelter, the Mt. Juliet Police and Fire Departments and she is a financial supporter of The Mt. Juliet Help Center. She is a Trade Partner with Del Webb of Lake Providence, a 55 plus community and has been involved in hosting several events for them including Cinco de Mayo and the 2015 Tail Gate Party. Ashley Dawn networks with several area apartment managers and is also an active member of The Mt. Juliet Chamber of Commerce.

Her success is based on her relationships with her tenants, business leaders, and friends and family in her community. Her passion is music and she has become quite the star on Self Storage Talk, the industry’s largest online community with over 7000 members, singing Self Storage Parodies. She was noticed and was asked to speak at the 2016 ISS World Expo in Las Vegas in April, 2016. Her topic is geared toward New Managers and she will share insider advice for handling situations for which you may not be prepared.

Other accomplishments in 2015 include winning third place in the Self-Storage Talk 2015 “Loving Las Vegas” Video Challenge.

Tommy Pierce, President of A+ Storage added “It was my honor and privilege to nominate her for this prestigious award. She exemplifies on every level what a Great Manager is. I look forward to what she will do in 2016 and it has been my pleasure to watch this young lady blossom as a site manager”.

Season of Change

summer to fall

There’s a new wind that’ll be approaching us soon. Fall is coming up and the end of summer is drawing closer. Beach vacation meets back to school. To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose. Summer gives us vacations, sand, and a tan. Fall brings us homework, an end zone, and autumn colors.

With that said, there’s a bit of a change for A+ Storage as well. Recently, we’ve transitioned from 12 locations to 7 locations. As A+ continues to serve Middle Tennessee, our focus will always continue to be our customers. You see, that’s the A+ Advantage. Our goal is to offer you a place to safely store the things you hold dear, their home away from home.

But it’s more than that, and it’s something you’ll notice. When you call to speak with us about one of our locations, we’re there at that very location. The same voice on the phone will welcome you at that same property. We’ll likely run into each other around town, at local events, in the grocery store. Our kids may go to the same school. You’ll notice that we’re not just a face behind the counter. We’re your neighbors, and an active part of our communities.

As the summer comes to a close and the lights of Friday night begin their glow, we wish for all of you the very best. When the time comes that you need storage, rest easy knowing that you already have a connection. Talk to your neighbor at A+ Storage. Don’t just take my word for it. Come see the A+ Advantage for yourself.
