  • Hazardous Items in Units

    New poll in response to this thread.

    Does your rental agreement have a clause prohibiting the storage of hazardous items?
    5
    Yes, and I make every customer initial next to it.

    Yes, but I don't usually mention it during the rental process. The customer should read the lease.

    No, we don't have such a clause in our rental agreement.

    I go over this line item extensively as well as things like no sleeping in the unit or drugs done in the unit or drinking in the unit or plants or fresh food.....etc.

      There should have been another option. "Yes" but no initials required. At what point do we stop having them initial? By requiring initials are we saying that only those paragraphs with initials are important? We have four legal size pages to our rental agreement with very few initials. Usually I tell the customers that the contract says we have all the rights and they have none.

        I ALWAYS mention, as they gaze at the 4 page contract-Do not store flammable, hazardous, chemical, the bodies of exes etc. in your storage-it's strictly for household goods and clothing, because of my earlier post that included fireworks and bullets. I don't know if a ticky box would make much of a difference.
        Why are I-phone chargers not called 'apple juice'???

            While my lease states such things are prohibited, the only thing they initial is a statement that says they are renting at their own risk and they are fully responsible for whether or not to insure their belongings as we don't require or provide insurance. That being said, people will still complain about something the lease mentions not covering, expecting us to reimburse them.
            Too many freaks, not enough circuses.

              Just before close at 6 PM I had a call from a young guy asking if I had ANY units. First red flag there. I asked if he knew what size he needed and when he needed it. He said I need it today! Second red flag! He said he needed an 8x10 or a 10x10. I have a couple open 5x10 units but no 10x10. I did not...

              Background checks, and credit checks, for a person to rent a storage unit, is a slippery slope for sure! I Pac has the best method, which is to say there are no vacancies, until he can tell that the person will not be a PITA. Everyone has a past, some complaints, maybe even some convictions. You cannot...

              We've just assumed they have no idea what they are doing. It's hard to keep a straight face sometimes. Or those people who can't get their unit open and they just need to push down with their foot to slide the latch. It's so satisfying to go all the way out there and open it immediately when they've...
