    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$$.

    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.

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

    Well then, come January, when the first excuse for non payment or you catch a sleeper in a unit or have to deal with figuring out if you should rent to a person or just overlook the joint behind their ear and the beer can in their hand, you will be "experienced" and have to learn how to swim...
