We conducted a mystery shopper study on two competing storage companies that frequently had facilities near each other. Significant effort was made in the design of the study. The facilities chosen were not only from each company/brand, but also in proximity. Special attention was made to still represent the overall brands nationally.

Other factors considered were affluence and the likelihood of finding a similar customer profile going to each facility. In total, 250 storage facilities were visited in 24 cities, making the logistics and conformity a challenging but rewarding exercise.
