    ooops.. I may have mis-read this. If the negotiating is for the Storage Wars crew to come on site, then it's a yes since it seems the show would pay for the privilege. If it's for a random news crew, probably not because access is a privilege.

    I'll take any and all publicity I can get for free that doesn't jepordize the facility or the tenants stuff.

    I'm not sure who gets credit for this qoute but " Any advertising is good "

    Wether it is good or bad, because most people can't remember the details but they do recall hearing something about that place. ( The key is remembering that place).

    Think about how many times you vaguely remember something but the details escaped you.

    "Any advertising is good" if you are an actor or a movie. If you rent or sell things to the public, negative advertising will kill you. People will remember it years after it happened.

    I'm with alekas - if they want to do this they would need a very large check - large enough to close the facility (I'm thinking around the 15th of the month on a Wednesday) they would also only be allowed to show the facility in a positive light explaining how we properly went through every action to take care of the matter BEFORE the unit was sold.
    My managers and employees would have to get a HUGE bonus for any part they would play in this including cleanup and security.

    Are you trying to increase the number of people who come to bid --- or getting storage customers?

    I can't tell you how strong is my reaction to your question. How many zeros can a lawyer add to his lawsuit when they sue for publically revealing private information?

    We won't even acknowledge that we are renting a unit to someone. If they already know one of our tenants, we still won't reveal which unit is theirs. You can't prosecute a spouse or relative for breaking into a unit and stealing something that belongs to them.

    Or, they want to pay but "need to get a receipt showing that the unit got credit", they can go online and make a payment using the name of the customer. "We will give you a receipt for that name, but the unit will not be shown." Our customer knows how much is due, ask them. We will pass along news that a payment is made and the balance due.

    Did you ever notice that banks WON'T reveal why they return a check? You won't find "NSF" or "closed account" on the check. If banks with big lawyers won't reveal, I won't either.

    I agree with lenmay, seems like a liability. We require that all auction buyers return any sensitive personal items to the property so we can return them to the owner (i.e. photo albums, birth certificates, etc), so if all of those items were aired publicly to a news crew I'd see that as a violation of our auction rules. Obviously we're on the honor system here, and I know a lot of buyers just chuck those items straight in the trash, but it's still a request that we make based on common decency.

    I think the publicity could be negative and we've seen enough emphasis placed on the auction side of our business so much of the public already thinks we just can't wait to sell our tenants stuff at auction to make big bucks off of it

    Just like Kate said --- people assume that we get all of the rent from a storage sale. I ALWAYS announce that "every penny we get above the rent goes to the renter, by law." Everytime I say that people are surprised.
