    Last facility the previous manager always had candy out, and Pam and I would DECIMATE it. I decided that out of concern for our lack of will power and the possibility of self inflicted cavities, I'd only put candy out for holidays. And I'd keep the extra on a higher shelf that meant I'd have to get...

    We have a 'water cooler' type machine-it gets water directly from our water supply and it's filtered. You can get cold or hot for tea. It's pretty neat.

    Maybe send a flyer to the local retirement home. A 5x10 is a handy size when you have just some extra stuff.

    You should raise his rent anyway. Gah, what a nightmare customer-also, no way should he be in your office for an hour. When he comes in tell him, nope, sorry, you're not free to talk right now. If he becomes belligerent then say, "Sir, I feel like you're being threatening, I will call the police...

  • Contact your state self storage association. They'll probably require you to join (not a bad thing) and they usually have generic contract for that sort of thing, or they can point you to a knowledgeable lawyer who understands your state's lien laws.

    replied to Advertising on Nextdoor?
    I use the 'throw everything at it until something sticks' idea of marketing. Definitely google as #1-make sure you've claimed your google listing and it says everything you want it to say, then try everything else. Instagram, FB, Pinterest, Nextdoor, YELP, Craigslist (they are all free) etc. Religiously...

    Nextdoor is awesome, I use it for many things. I don't know how much they charge for advertising though.

    replied to Shelf rentals?
    We offered this at our last facility and each and every tenant said, "Nah, I've got shelving or I'll just go to Wally world/Home Depot for some." Funny story-we had a tenant move in after asking a bajillion questions about the flood plain and if we'd ever had any water issues (he was moving...

  • Wide hallways for large furniture since that is what most people are storing and diamond plate 4 feet up the walls for the inevitable cart crashes etc.

    In the past I've sent letter (On letterhead) with a 'coupon' attached and a business card extolling our virtues. Open! for 6am-pm! Only 3 blocks from you for your convenience, we offer climate control etc. etc. Store your business records with us! Or something like that. It's something you can sit down...

    We used to have weekly meetings, but those were a pain in the mikta so I did away with them-I would do an informal sit down in the office with everyone for a few minutes and they knew my office door was always open (my office was clear glass, lol, you could tell if I was busy or not-it was like a fish...

  • All of the time! We get dusty in here. I'll vacuum around the computer about once a month. So much dust, yuck.

    I regularly get vendors to come in and try to sell me something. A guy came in the other day and gave me a spiel about how he'd heard about one of my bosses and how he was a known investor and how he sure wanted to meet him.
    I'm like, uh huh, uh huh. Nope, sorry I can't give any information out...

  • Last facility I worked at said NO electricity in units.
    BUT, we had 10 warehouse units that people ran businesses out of, they got free electricity and free internet included with the warehouse. We were ALWAYS full in those.
    This facility has NO power in any units except two, one of which...

    I was going to say HP as well. You can go to an office supply guy and they have them that the ink lasts for along time. We had them at my last job, this one we use Canon-which are okay, but I liked the HP ones more. Enough so I bought one for home as well.

    Absolutely. Do you have a 15 day or a 30 termination? If so you can and should condition her access to strictly business hours.

    Add it to their account and send the whole thing to collections. So, you've discovered stuff in there and the tenant is ignoring you. Run them completely through the lien process and auction them off-and what doesn't make money send to collections....
