    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

          Building incrementally is tough.

          * Building a storage unit ain't cheap.
          * It is a nearly irreversible commitment to a certain type of development.

          It is the commitment to a certain type of land development that most concerns me.

          Yes, being able to send people to collections would pretty much totally reduce my stress in these situations (knowing they wouldn't get away with it), but although our management company (of which I'm an employee, btw, not a partner) has not yet set this up. I do plan to bring it up to the relevant...

          I would send him to collections asap and get that set up, which takes a day. Secondly I would leave a detailed review about him and his company at any number of business review sites. Mainly about him because you have no dealings with his business. Next I would wait for him outside his business and...
