Manager Spotlight: Scott McRaven

September 21, 2017


Though he was born and raised in Illinois, Scott McRaven has called south Texas his home since 1998. As property manager for our facility on Rodd Field Road in Corpus Christi, Scott works hard to keep his storage units in top shape and to provide every customer with the best service possible.

 

To celebrate that drive and dedication, we’re featuring Scott in this month’s Manager Spotlight!

 

How many years have you worked in the storage industry?

 

It will be six years in October. All of them have been with Move It, and all of them in Corpus Christi.

 

What do you enjoy most about working for Move It?

 

I really enjoy helping customers and helping people. I’m a people person. When it comes to moving, it’s very stressful. So when I can give them peace of mind that their property is safe and secure, it really takes the edge off.

 

What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever found in a storage unit?

 

A stuffed bobcat. It was during a storage auction, and right when I opened the door, I saw this big bobcat – it was probably about five feet. It was kind of a strange situation. It ended up being auctioned off. It’s not something you expect to find, especially right there – like it’s protecting, ready to pounce.

 

What are some things people might not know about storage/being the manager of a storage facility?

 

As a property manager, you have to be patient, be a good listener, and have a good memory. Me, I’m very hands-on. I like to get to know our tenants by name and build a good rapport with them. I’m also pretty adamant about giving potential customers a tour of the property to show them the amenities we have to offer. I call it “playing show and tell.”

 

What’s one thing you wish every customer knew?

 

You really don’t realize how much stuff you have until you start moving. If you get a good idea of what you need to store beforehand, we can help you more easily find the right unit. Especially if you have any precious items, I always recommend our climate controlled units because of the climate we’re in down here in south Texas.
