Setting your reservation window

Follow

Sending you customers has always been our top priority, but we realize each facility has different unit mixes and occupancy needs. With the custom reservation window feature in MySpareFoot, it’s easier than ever to adjust your SpareFoot listing based on what makes sense for you and your business.

Using the instructions below, you will be able to customize the number of days you hold a unit for a SpareFoot customer to move in and set unit-group exceptions based on the number of units available.

NOTE: This article is for non-integrated facilities. If you are taking advantage of our free integration with storage management software (like SiteLink Web Edition, Centershift, etc.), this interface looks slightly different. Click here to read that article for integrated facilities.

First, navigate to the "Features" area of MySpareFoot.

There's no way to set an account-level reservation window. So, if you have multiple facilities on your account, you'll need to click into each facility one at a time.

Select your reservation window

Click the drop-down menu.

The options in this drop-down menu are hard-coded and are the only available options. For example, you can set a 9-day reservation window but you cannot set a 46-day reservation window.
