  • In this state, storage facilities and wrecker yards can not sell vehicles, it must be done through the sheriff's office....so you do need to find out. If we are selling a vehicle without a title, we MUST clearly state it is without a title and being sold for parts only. So I wouldn't talk to the buyer...

  • In South Carolina, we have to do a DMV check before we sell a vehicle, to make sure there isn't a lien against it...if there is, we have to contact the lienholder and give them the option to deal with the past due amount and removing the vehicle.

    If no lien, we take the DMV paperwork where...

    My husband and I found our current job on Self Storage Talk as well....we've been here 7 1/2 years. We were in another state and applied for the job advertised here. We had 4 or 5 VERY lengthy phone interviews, and reference checks. We were hired within a week sight unseen. We met our boss at the...

  • Drive around the rural area...look and see how many yards have boats, RV's trailers, etc in them. Look and see how many yards have storage sheds in them. We live in a small city surrounded by a hundred miles of rural in every direction (except east which is the ocean)......it's only here in the city...

    Yes....only for move-in's though. And some long long-term good commercial customers may borrow it once or twice a year. All the rental truck places are in other storage facilities...so if we don' t have a truck to lend out, then my customers are going to end up at another storage facility to get their...

    We do...the gutters are cleaned out at least twice a year, depending on the weather. And we do get stuff thrown up there, and pine straw galore lands on the roofs....

    You must not ever have been a U-Haul dealer. Back in the days when we were burdened with U-Hauls,, on more than one occasion we opened the back door of a truck that had been dropped off overnight, to find one or more dirty diapers, that had been cooking up in the Florida heat for who knows how lon...

    replied to Many 'Hats' Managers Wear
    Pac, women find men who wear pink to be extremely desirable....because a man who is comfortable wearing pink shows that he is extremely secure in his masculinity. The guys who shy away from wearing pink? what exactly are they worried would happen if they wore that color?...

    replied to Hazardous Items in Units
    we have them initial the clause as to whether they are active duty military or not, and if they initial yes they have to supply their base info and commanding officer's contact numbers. I've read one of the storage legal experts say the same thing as A-Team....why have them initial if the entire...

    We had some long-term customers come here one day with their little yippy dog. Went into one of the climate controlled buildings to their unit. Left a little while later, and my husband happened to be walking through that building shortly thereafter to find a steaming pile of dog poo in the hallway...

    replied to Just need to vent a little
    We have the flexibility of using a company that has regularly proven to be competitively priced for routine repairs. If for an example, an entire A/C unit has to be replaced, then we have to get multiple quotes.

    One thing we face is that there aren't 3 vendors in some cases in the area...

    I've never seen climate controlled drive-up units, but I'm sure there are some facilities out there that have them. Don't know what the point is since the moment you roll up the door, it's all gone.

    replied to insuffent fund checks
    They pay bank fees here if they bounce. Though actually I haven't had a NSF check in years. We have a county solicitor's office who goes after them pretty hard if they don't pay up within 10 days. You just send a one page form and the copy of the NSF check to their office, and a county sheriff goes...

    Thanks for responding about the health insurance problem in the storage industry (and in many industries). We have a government who expects us to get health insurance through our employers, and employers who don't provide it. And it's almost unaffordable when employers do provide it, but no one working...
