    Hi Rinvigg,

    If you want to look into one solution for remote camera and monitoring along with call center support, you can look into OpenTech Alliance. They may be known for their kiosks (which you may want to consider as well), but they actually have a really diverse product base.

    Again, if you're looking to consolidate vendors for website SEO and reputation management, you may want to look into companies that specialize in self-storage marketing like The Storage Group.

    Most management software providers will integrate with these services so I suggest finding one that you like and fits your business needs and going from there.

      I have a Boat/RV facility that I run remotely.

      -I used a local security/camera company for easy service in case there are issues, and it came with an app to view from anywhere. Very helpful.
      -I use Easy Storage Solutions.
      -Have used ESS for a call center before too, wasn't terribly impressed with that part.
      -Good website name and google presence is a must, I agree.

        Of course you can auction a unit without a proper address. Just follow your states laws and send the proper notices the the address the tenant provided to you. I have people like this too. Usually they will get things fixed before a sale, but not always....

        Yes mold and mildew do spread via airborne spores. Which means it can spread from unit to unit.

        Advice, please. We have a customer who rents two units, payments timely with bank generated checks each month. All mail correspondence has been returned and a few months ago we received a text message to stop texting the phone number on file as it does not belong to this person. All is well until we...
