Fort Knox Storage is a Queensland based family owned and operated business. They joined the well deserved rank of becoming one of Queensland's Best Businesses in November 2018. The team at eCentral had many meetings with the owners, shareholders and senior staff well prior to this date.

They wanted new, fresh and innovative ideas to put them ahead of their competitors. So, yes! They chose us and we began to take them on a new upward financial journey.

We wanted to ensure we took a highly beneficial and holistic approach to the changes that we were making.
Now, 70% of Fort Knox Storage's current business is coming from organic sources that has been very reliable, with more than 2 times the organic click-through rate than before, which is very significant to changing the nature of their business. The statistics continue to show that occupancy is well above the year on year results.
The existing website had a number of problems that became clear during our first consultation. No more than 6 weeks later, Fort Knox Storage was enjoying the benefits of a new website that converted more enquires with it’s outstanding UX and UI, while also delivering superior functionality to their old product. Despite hand coding the website from the beginning, and needing to integrate all existing content as well as ensure the online quote and enquiry plugins continued to function in the Sitelink software, the eCentral team was able to deliver this exceedingly fast build. Is business being converted by your business at an effective rate?
