Level 1 & Level 2 Audits

Level 1 Audit

Is intended to help the team understand where the facility performs relative to its competition, establish a baseline for measuring improvements, and decide whether further evaluation is warranted.

Level 2 Audit

Builds on the findings from Level 1 audits and evaluates building systems in detail to define a variety of potential operational efficiency improvements.

Gap Audits

We find that many clients want a fresh assessment of their facility to determine areas of weakness or non-compliance. We provide Gap Analysis utilizing senior-level team members to provide an assessment of the current condition of the client’s facility. In many instances, our professionals will spot more detailed concerns, and these will also be passed along to the client. Southeast Management will perform the Gap Analysis very cost-effectively to demonstrate our value and help our client chart a course towards a more comprehensive program.

Physical Needs Assessment Audit

The Physical Needs Assessment Audit is designed to address all existing conditions, outstanding maintenance issues, and to identify any building code violations. Our Building Assessments team interviews site personnel, performs document reviews, and conducts walk-through surveys noting the physical condition of the building systems and components. The PNA includes a site inspection, owner/operator interview and questionnaire, and preparation of a report documenting the findings, conclusions, and recommendations.

We then formulate and present our recommendations with a budget to enhance the physical and aesthetic condition of the property to maximize its position in the marketplace. The PNA can be an essential tool in determining the subject site value and approximate cost in possible repairs and/or investment in the property.

Hidden Income & Shopping Service Audit

Hidden Income Audit

The Hidden Income Audit is solely designed to increase the client’s bottom line. With our experience, expertise, and insight, we will be able to provide you with an objective analysis of your facility. This analysis will optimize operations in vital categories and increase the return on your self-storage investment.

Our analysis will entail expense control methods and specific recommendations to improve your property’s efficiency. The savings are seen quickly and drastically outweigh the cost of this service.

Shopping Service Audit

The Shopping Service Audit can provide you with a real picture of what is going on at your self-storage facility when you are not there. Unlike other mystery shopping companies that hire “shoppers” with no operational experience, we use proven operations personnel with actual experience out in the field to evaluate just how effective your team is. Our belief is that if you want a true analysis of what is going on at your property, you should use a company that not only has experience in the industry but has consultants with proven history as multi-facility managers doing your mystery shops.
