    replied to New Facility Coming to Town
    One of my fears with this new facility was the RV parking they are going to have. Knowing the site they are converting, I was under the impression they were taking over the entire parking lot for parking. Nope. The parking lot isn't even part of the plans, it's zoned for something different. The RV...

    Both guys actually looked at the door. Second guy said he used to replace the springs, but because the cost is similar to replacing the door, he'd rather replace the door. Apparently it's also less work. Two very different approaches to the issue. And I would not consider the door old. The building...

    Pac - you are exactly right about the spring. It's on one side of the door and rolled out exactly like a tear drop. If it wasn't possible to fix them, you wouldn't be able to buy the springs to replace the broken ones.

    I'm super jealous of you folks that have more freedom to get things...

    He said: 1: by the time you take the door down, roll it out, replace the spring, and put it back up (he said about a 3 hour job) it's about the same cost as a new door.
    2: The spring is broken, and they don't replace the springs anymore, they replace the door. Is that a way to get more money?...

    So this is interesting. Second door company just left. According to that guy, we need a whole new door. Spring's broken, will cost almost as much to fix as a brand new door so you need a new door. First guy from yesterday...easy fix, put back on it's track and adjust the tension. These 2 quotes could...

    Getting multiple quotes for certain things that are not time sensitive makes sense, I agree with that. Lately, though, it just feels like I'm doing it for everything, regardless of job size, cost, or urgency. My cameras are a better example. I was told I needed at least 2 quotes for getting them running...

    So, I just got off the phone with a guy at the door place. I called because I hadn't received the email quote and wanted to make sure he got the email address right. Apparently there's a whole process in doing that, but I did find out that the tech forgot a letter when typing in the email, so, yay?...

    Looked it up online. Tenants will be able to drive through the center of the building to off-load into which ever half they rent on. Too many details I haven't seen yet. I'll update later. Just thought that one was interesting....

    It could. But they're too cheap. Did I say that out loud?

    I have yet to hear from any of the camera people or the other door company I called today. My thinking is because I'm just looking for quotes, they aren't interested. Too many things need fixing at the same time. If it were one or the other it wouldn't seem so overwhelming. I'll just keep calling and...

    My situation is very similar. And I understand getting multiple quotes for big jobs like replacing an a/c unit. I've had to do that. It's the little things that kill me. And, like you, I also run into issues with just finding enough vendors to get quotes from. My gate vendor is in Sarasota and they...

    I'm not ashamed to admit that I do pop on here now and then and see what other facilities are hiring.

    I know. I just got off the phone with the camera people and I felt really stupid saying "I know you did the install, but I just need a quote". Prop mgmt gave me the name of another person to call for the cameras. He's "really really good" I'm told. Then why aren't we using him all...

    It is probably the one thing I really hate about here. It seems so counter-productive to always have somebody different working on the same things. Instead of they guy from Company A coming in and saying "oh, you're having problems with that again?", you have the guy from Company B saying...

    Just need to vent a little

    I'm frustrated with having to get multiple quotes for any work needing done on the property. Let's just say I have an owner who always goes with the cheapest guy. I had a guy trim trees, who admitted that's not his thing, because he was cheaper by $300 than the guy who trims trees for a living. Are...

    replied to insuffent fund checks
    I agree with Kris on this. If a tenant bounces a check, I don't care what the excuse is, I never take a check from them again. And, if they don't pay the fees associated with that, they don't get access until they do. No more checks from this tenant, period! Overlock her unit, if you haven't already....

    replied to How much do you charge for late fees?
    I charge a $10 late due on the 10th day past due; gate locks out at 5 days past due.
    I use SiteLink Web Edition and at the beginning of every month, it lets me know which autopay cards are expiring that month. I go into that tenant's unit record and print the letter to send them. If your software...

    replied to How do you cope with working alone ?
    Same here. No people, no phone calls. But, the minute I run to the bathroom, or start making a sandwich...either the phone rings or someone walks in. Every. Time. So far today, no phone calls and only one tenant came in to tell me he vacated his unit. So I'm cleaning the office and doing laundry. Believe...
