What is a Net Promoter Score?
At a glance, this diagram shows that STORsquare is a superior option for your portable storage needs against PODS®, but what really is a Net Promoter Score? A Net Promoter Score (NPS for short) is a metric used to measure customer satisfaction based on one simple question:
“How likely is it that you would recommend this business to a friend?“
How does Net Promoter Score work?
Customers rate their likelihood of referring a company on a scale of 0 (not at all likely) to 10 (extremely likely). Their responses place them in one of three categories: Detractors, Passives, or Promoters.
NPS = % Promoters – % Detractors
What is a a Good Net Promoter Score?
While different industries have varying benchmarks, one thing remains the same between them all. Being in the negative means you need a lot of improvement. The scale below shows the industry benchmarks and where STORsquare and PODS NPS score puts them.

STORsquare is an Atlanta-owned and operated company with a business model that focuses on superior customer service. Here is a quick clip from one of STORsquare’s founders explaining what sets us apart and how our business model is different from the rest. You can expect the same great support each and every time you call us, which can’t be said about our PODS.
How Can STORsquare help my retail business?
In the average American household, November and December are known for two things: holiday cheer and lots of shopping. In the retail world, September, October, November, and December are knows for two things – A huge spike in sales and a ton of inventory. It is no secret that retail stores have the hard task of finding the balance between having enough inventory and enough storage year-round but especially in the last 4 months of the year. STORsquare’s on-site storage provides a unique solution because not only will you benefit from the much-needed additional storage space, but you will be able to keep the extra stock safe and organized with the bonus convenience of everything being right on hand.
Rather than needing to buy new holiday decor each year, your store can save money by keeping what you have to use it year after year. In theory this sounds great, but again, the problem retailers run into is space. While inflatable jack-o-lanterns, Snowmen, and Santa Clauses are appealing to the customer, they are sure to bulk up your storage. To keep your seasonal displays organized and out of the way, investing in additional storage space is essential.
If you don’t want the container onsite but also don’t want to deal with the hassle of loading a truck, taking the truck to a self-storage facility, unloading the truck, and then repeating this process any time you need your seasonal contents, STORsquare can relocate your packed container to our off-site facility. This ensures all of your holiday decorations will be safely stored and we will deliver the container when you need them.
We have seen retailers use their storage containers as a way to draw in passing by customers. They will have us place the container in a place that is out of the way but visible to they can essentially set it up as a showroom or sidewalk sale. Shoppers are easily drawn inside after passing a festive storage container showing off some of the new and exciting merchandise your store is offering this holiday season. The best part is after hours, the storage container can be securely locked to ensure no tampering, vandalizing, or theft occurs.
Our mule delivery system allows us to put our containers where others in our industry can’t. We are proud to say we are the only ones in our area to offer a delivery system as versatile and accommodating as ours. We like to say “if it fits, it sits”, meaning we can essentially deliver the container anywhere it fits. This is really convenient if you are looking for a very specific placement for the container to double as a showroom display and storage.
Offering layaway options to your customers can be a great way to draw in customers and sales during the holiday season. The problem retailers run into is where to keep all of that claimed inventory that’s waiting to be paid off? Not to mention the items purchased using layaway often tend to be large pieces of merchandise that are likely to take up a lot of space. STORsquare’s portable storage containers are a great place for this additional merchandise.
One of our containers takes up the none of our local competitors offer it. The container can be parked right outside of your store, keeping those layaway pieces secure, organized, and easy to access.
Not only can STORsquare meet all of your business’s additional storage needs as we approach this holiday season, but our storage containers are built perfectly for providing retail solutions at all times of the year.
