  • Avoided a problem

    Just told 2 guys to leave the office and would not rent to them. They wanted a 10x15 unit to store a bike trailer and 2 Harley's. I said fine but will need to make copies of current titles or registrations for both bikes and the trailer. First they said the trailer is not titled. I said if it has a VIN it is titled. They also tried to say the bikes have no VIN because of custom frames. I told them of my Harley years of experience and said that the custom frames can still have VIN's on them or the title has the engine number on it. Either way, the bike would be titled. Then they said they would still need the unit but would not store the trailer or bikes in it. Ah, yea, right. I told them I didn't feel comfortable renting to them and said I could give them a number of another facility. I got cussed at and the door slammed. Bye bye Dumba$$.

        It's amazing the stories they come up with for not having the title, registration and proof of insurance.

          Frankly, I didn't even care or ask for insurance. That is up to them. I always want to make a copy of a current title or registration. I always ask what is being stored. General answers with no details is a red flag. They started out with a trailer and 2 Harley's. Backtracking does not work for me. When any prospective tenant is fast talking me, I will not rent till I get them to slow down and talk with details.

            We just started last month renting on line and it is working good so far. We have Kiosks and there is not a lot of difference But you know nothing is perfect. I guess you could call it the future.

            We use storEDGE and have been asking for the feature since 2014 when we switched from sitelink stand alone. We were told that they would be adding the feature soon, and that has yet to ever happen. We offer RV Storage, and so say if a customer comes in on the 15th but won't need it until the 1st, we...

            My wife and I ran a property down in Dallas. We were right down town in a very bad part of Dallas. Lots of transients and drugs were rampant. The reason I mention all of that is it did not make a difference to us. When we left one my homeless people that I had to bicker with fairly often came up...
