Our Story


3 Mile Domination Self Storage Services

3 Mile Domination Self Storage Services is a full service Self Storage Management Company specializing in Facility Management & Operations, Feasibility Studies, Consulting, Marketing, and Sales Training within the Self Storage industry.

3 Mile Domination was founded by two, long time industry veterans Matthew Van Horn and James Ross. While operating facilities through the financial crisis both Matthew and James realized something very alarming....the self storage industry was inadequately prepared to handle our new economy. The systems used to operate our facilities, market our facilities, train our operations staff, and access vital information needed to change. The larger self storage REIT's recognized this and started to make changes to their systems, but most independent self storage operators were left behind. 3 Mile Domination was founded to help independent self storage operators close that gap and restructure their self storage operations to compete in the new economy.
