    replied to That's a lot of units
    I've got a tenant in one of my facilities with 8 units and none of them are even half full. Really odd situation, but he always pays on time so I don't ask any questions.

    replied to Hello & Feasibility Question
    Bottom line: storage is way overpriced right now because it's performed incredibly well through the pandemic and all of the market uncertainties that we've been dealing with. A couple of options for you, as I see it:

    1) Come up with more cash down and lower your debt - maybe take on an...

    replied to Hello & Feasibility Question
    So, I'm seeing a discrepancy in the numbers between the left P&L column and your rental rate breakdown on the right side of the sheet.

    Is the left column "actual" Per Annum rents at $345k, and the right side table "pro-forma" rents at $391k?...

    replied to The Paper Trail
    We bought our facilities (as opposed to buidling) so we had a few legacy tenants that weren't into computers. I have paper copies of their leases and mail them the occasional notice, but that's pretty much it. Texas allows us to email pretty much all correspondence so I rely on the software for notifications,...

  • I call a junk haul service. Usually around $50 for a small unit, and maybe $200 for a big one. Well worth it compared to my time and cost to rent a trailer, pay dump fees and load/unload that crap myself. Maybe part of your business, but not mine. ...

  • I've had these same thoughts: are auctions worth the hassle?

    But then I remind myself: I'm in the storage business, not the junk business, and auctions provide means for me to avoid being a junk hauler.

    I have the first one (Durabox) and it leaks like a sieve. I only use it for lock returns, and it's mounted under an overhang, but it still catches windblown rain....

    My fences are 6 foot chain link and I've never had a break-in. I do have barbed wire on top but these days I think that's over-kill.

    With so many battery operated cutting tools and angle grinders available, today's thief is a lazy SOB that will likely cut your fence instead of trying to...

    So, it appears that a number of y'all allow the tenants to go into a second month past due before starting lien proceedings. Do any of those tenants ever come up with the full balance due after letting them go that long?...

  • UPDATE: the elderly fella forgot that he had given his grandaughter permission to pay storage rent with his credit card.

    So this was a good lesson learned for me, and TSSA's advice was spot on: never make assumptions on someone's private/financial situation. Granted, this girl has been...

    I've got an eletriction with 2 big units and he's storing dozens of Generac generators. He's in and out of the facility at least 3 times a week pulling out one or two for installation. I guess we've got lots of "preppers" in central Texas, or folks still nervous about the power grid failure...

  • Yep, I'm cash only once lien starts and I also disable their system login on that date. But this gal snuck in with the stolen card about 3 days before she would have gone into lien.

    And given her history of slow-pay with the previous owner, I remember thinking when she paid with that card,...

    Tenant paid rent with stolen credit card

    Hello all,

    Here's one that I havent yet been faced with.

    A legacy tenant in the facility we bought last fall had a history of slow-pay. Lots of excuses and typical blather: check's in the mail, dog has covid, tornado hit my bank, blah blah blah....

    In December...

    Yes, I sent video clips to the local police chief and he has assigned an investigator.

    I've read/heard multiple reports that animal abusers turn into mass shooters, so this one really creeped me out....

    replied to Remote Management
    No, you're looking at a property that's ridiculously over-priced. A lot of these brokers tend to price properties based on pro-forma performance instead of actual value. In other words, they're telling the property owner, "It's okay that you're awful at managing storage, here is what your property...

    Okay folks, post your clips and screenshots here of the oddities you've captured on camera.

    I'll start with this tweaker chasing a cat through my facility with a Bowie knife...
