Metro Self-Storage’s locally developed software, AKIBA, makes rentals, reservations, and payments seamless via the website and on-site rental kiosks. The AKIBA software is used by hundreds of facilities in 3 different languages across Canada, U.S., Europe, and South America. These advances in technology have helped the company continue to provide exemplary customer service, making it easier for customers to engage with the business. Metro’s leverage of the AKIBA platforms will play an important role in the future expansions of Dartmouth and downtown Halifax in the years to come.
In addition to the Bayer’s Lake expansion, Metro Self-Storage recently opened Phase 1 of its redevelopment of the 201 Joseph Zatzman Drive facility in Dartmouth’s Burnside Industrial Park. The location is expanding to offer over 55,000 square feet of climate-controlled storage, with a spacious and convenient drive-through bay.
“We are excited to offer our customers this Class A storage product and look forward to meeting your storage needs in the future. We can’t wait for everyone to experience our new facilities,” Shannon said.
