    Ditto. Having one unmanned in the facility is just asking for trouble in my opinion...

    replied to Legal Worries in 2020
    We have a few facilities in Illinois and they just passed a law requiring us to charge Sales Tax for stored vehicles. We're still waiting to see if they're going to make it active going forward, or if we're going to have to charge it to all existing rentals as well.

    replied to Skylights
    I have to agree. We have skylights in our older big drive up units. They are the biggest pain in the neck for property maintenance. Apparently the reasoning for them at the time of install was so that the big units could have more light in them, and so the tenant could see if the door happened to close....

    replied to No food means NO FOOD
    My maintenance team was doing a spring repair in a unit Monday and found a fossilized pork steak on a paper plate, knife fork and all. The tenant hasn't been in the unit for over a year, so it has to be at LEAST that old. Luckily no sign of vermin so far.

    We did find sealed vodka in an...

  • This is pretty much my go to method. I even had one guy apologize after he was finished for all the things he called me. I've heard it all anyway, call centers seem to attract the worst people. I have been fortunate that I've never been in a situation where I might need a gun, but I do keep mace handy...

  • Interviewers ARE biased. The instant you look at a resume you form an opinion of the person it describes. And don't get me started on the corporate practice of discarding half of the resume's because that's "how it's done, and you need a certain amount of luck in life." Several companies I...

  • I have always been of the opinion that minimum wage should be based off the county or even city basis. There's too much variation in the cost of living. I'm sure that would be a lot of work to set up though, so I can't see it happening.

    I have also been of the opinion that companies should...

  • Now see I was always living and supporting myself on a single Job, with occasional assistance from side ventures. (I sell things I knit) I also do not have a college education. I know I got lucky in that I managed to find jobs that paid well for me that weren't also entry level pay. Unfortunately not...

  • I JUST had this happen yesterday! She's one of my people slated for auction in January, hasn't answered her phone once. I was at the Laundromat washing a comforter. She came in started loading laundry, looked up, spotted me and booked it! She even left the laundry she had taken out behind! I have no...

    replied to Fees
    We do a $20 late fee at 5 days past due, a $50 Pre-lien fee at 35 days, and a $125 auction fee at 55 days. We also charge a late fee for each individual rent month, so really for the people who let it go all the way to auction it's $60 in late fees. Do you do this method as well, or only charge one...

  • We use the gold locks from Chateau, which people have tampered with on occasion here. (they usually aren't smart enough to mess with the latch.) I don't know if they're just that brazen or if they're desperate. We're also gated and all hallway doors have entry keypads, but that's more because of the...
