EDITOR'S NOTE: On April 7, the NNBW launched the “Support Your Local Business Sweepstakes” as a way to support local businesses in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Throughout the Sweepstakes in April, May and June, we'll be featuring each of our business partners in a special Q-and-A. Today, we profile Quick Space in Sparks.
NNBW: Tell us about your business and some of the most
important services you provide?
Answer: Quick Space provides site services and
storage solutions to all the Sierra region, including northern Nevada and parts
of northern California. Services include storage, construction services, event
infrastructure, temporary office and portable restroom services. Commercial
business is our focus and those customer calls and needs are important to us.
Quick Space carries an extensive inventory that includes unique sizes and
specials options. This coupled with our problem-solving team allows our customers
to find top-notch solutions.
NNBW: What are some of the key things your business
does to ensure premium levels of customer service?
Answer: We control all aspects of our process. Our
clients are usually relationship based over one-time transactions and it makes
a big difference in being able to best serve the customer. Everything can be
customized for the account, from assigning a particular account manager;
specialty asset conversions including doors, lighting or even paint color; to
customized billing options. We are also utilizing our own fleet with customer
friendly drivers to follow through with our superior service. Regardless of
site or event size, Quick Space and our employees are dedicated to ensuring
each customer's needs and expectations are met and exceeded. Our leaders
recognized the growth of the northern Nevada business environment and wanted to
ensure our customers' needs were being fulfilled. We worked to develop custom
products and solutions to fit the specific needs of the customer, as well as
modified our services to support the rapidly changing economy.
NNBW: What makes Northern Nevada such a great place to
own and operate a business?
Answer: Being a part of the northern Nevada
business community and being able to provide our services to other local
companies is important to us. We are proud to operate a business that serves
our local economy, citizens and region. From private events to construction
jobsites that are bringing people and jobs to our area, being able to provide a
service that assists those companies is very rewarding. Additionally, the
business environment that has been created here, from the tax breaks to
pro-business incentives, makes working in northern Nevada great.
NNBW: As a local business owner, why do you feel it's
important to give back to the community?
Answer: At Quick Space, we embrace our role in the
northern Nevada community. We actively participate in professional associations
that sustain our industry including the Associated General Contractors of
America, Builders Association of Northern Nevada, Portable Sanitation
Association International and National Portable Storage Association. Quick
Space is also proud to support local organizations that foster the growth and
development of our region and its people including Western Nevada College, the
Reno Rodeo, the University of Nevada, Reno and The Community Food Pantry. Strengthening
our industry and surrounding community is at the core of our company values.
NNBW: What are you doing to support other local
businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic?
Answer: Quick Space is continuing to provide our services to our clients, made up of many local businesses. Because of regulations that health organizations are implementing, including increased sanitizing stations on jobsites, we are providing our clients with the specific inventory they need to continue to operate. Additionally, we are providing our services to companies and organizations that are currently serving on the frontlines of this pandemic. For example, Quick Space recently provided a massive amount of resources to set up temporary housing for people that need to be isolated or are currently isolating. We have also been assisting with multiple medical facility site logistics and the base units for on-site testing facilities throughout northern Nevada. Outside of our normal operations, we are participating in local challenges that are striving to support our employees and local restaurants. During difficult times, it's important to take care of others, including local businesses, employees and our community.
