  • Vehicle storage

    Self storage isn't warehousing and we don't want to be warehousing. But what about storing multiple vehicles and boats in one large, open building? The managers have the only access keys and tenants can only access with the manager accompanying them. This sure sounds like "care and custody." Anyone out there doing this or have some input?

    Thanks.

    Re: Vehicle storage

    Do you have a lot of inquiries for this type of service? It sounds like a hassle to me and you would still need contracts, proof of ownership, lien information and insurance info. You would also have to be very specific on access times if you would be accompanying the customers. I have never heard of anyone doing it this particular way so if you proceed, please keep us updated as to how it is working. I would also recommend that you photograph each vehicle and put in your database. I cannot TELL you what a nightmare it is to not know who owns what! I am on my 2nd facility takeover in 6 months, and neither recorded this information!
