You may have already noticed that we have a sparkly new website! We thought we would treat ourselves this year as it’s our 20th birthday and make our website more user friendly for our customers in the process.
What have we done?
1. We have made our site ‘responsive’ which simply means that whatever device you are using to visit the ABC website on, it will still work and fit the screen. So, if you’re reading this blog on your smartphone, tablet or PC you won’t lose any of our fabulous content or have to annoyingly move from one side of the page to the over – it will all be visible on the screen.
What has changed?
Not only has our website been made responsive we have also changed the design giving it a cleaner more simple look so visitors can find what they are looking for more efficiently. But don’t worry it’s still packed with lots of information and videos from the ABC team.
We have also changed the online booking and pricing system so it is easier to use and you know what you are getting for your money in just a few simple clicks.
The desktop PC is beginning to become a thing of the past with many people opting for a tablet or browsing the internet on their smartphones. We have seen a remarkable increase of internet traffic in the last year come from these devices and so we wanted to move with the times and get our website working effectively across them all.
What the owners said…
“Coming only a year after our last website update, ABC’s new site was driven by the need to make it better for mobile users. Over the last year we’ve seen the number of visitors using tablets or smartphones go from under 10% to nearly 50% and it’s still growing! Rather than create a seperate ‘mobile’ site we’ve used new ‘responsive’ techniques to rebuild the site so that it works transparently and without loss of content across all browsers and devices. Self storage pricing can be very confusing so we also took the opportunity to review our online prices and booking system. The aim was to make it much simpler to understand – in line with our company philosophy of striving to provide simple and cost-effective storage solutions for our Customers.” John Milton
“It doesn’t matter whether it’s an iPad, smartphone, laptop or desktop or if it’s 3am – you can check out all the deals and secure your unit with ease (of course, we’re also still very happy to talk to you on the phone as well by the way!) We’ve also incorporated lots of new videos to help explain how self storage works and what makes ABC so different – and we are adding more all the time. It all fits in neatly with our aim to take the hassle out of storage for our customers, and to provide them with great value, secure storage as simply as possible and always with the best customer service.” David Milton
