    Hey guys and gals. Came across this page about a week ago, searching the internet for info on Self Storage. Lots of good info in here. A little about myself. Im from Florida but now live in Southern Mississippi. I've been wanting to make the jump and buy a self storage facility for a couple of years now. Havent been able to come across a good buy yet. What I've found is either 2small with no room to expand or 2 Large and expensive. My wife suggests that we just find property and build our own units, but doing the number it just makes me nervous. Especially starting with ZERO tenants.
    I work offshore as a captain in the oilfield and work a 14day on 14 days off rotation. I'm thinking, where I want to be is around 200 units with room for expansion and room for covered boat storage. Anyways I'm rambling. Glad to be here and looking forward to learning from some vets

          What they did was strip out the good stuff and left the trash for you to take care of. That is exactly why you should charge at least a $100 cash deposit that you can refund when you inspect the unit after they take everything and do it in the agreed upon time frame. I charge $200. I also now do the...

          After auction dilema
          We auctioned a unit. We gave them 3 days to clean it out. They asked for and extension. We gave them 2 additional days. They were in the unit the same day as the auction and put their lock on it. Now it is 10 days later. They have not been back in and are not returning calls. Any suggestions?...
