Self-storage staff
SSAM is your industry representative

The SSAM staff works diligently with legal and legislative counsels to monitor the progress of legislation that affects the self-storage industry and contributes input to assure that our viewpoints are represented, understood and protected.

Not-for-profit trade association


The Self-Storage Association of Michigan (SSAM) thanks you for supporting our industry. However, the SSAM is a not-for-profit trade association and does not mediate or resolve disputes between self-storage operators and tenants. For issues with your facility or unit, please review your rental agreement and contact the individual named there. Alternatively, call, email, or visit the facility in person to address and resolve the concern. SSAM does not have the power, authority, or ability to remedy any disputes between an operator and a tenant.
